Re: Garden waste - how to get rid of it via the Council?

Lat year, between March and November, Lewisham organised garden waste pickup at weekends from the Girton Road car park. With luck they will do it again this year. I try to compost as much as possible, including tree prunings which I put through a shredder first, but last year we had a ton of ivy to ...

Re: "White Tiger" kittens

Bengals are attractive, but they tend to have leopard rather than tiger markings. At one time we wondered about getting a Savannah, but the attractive ones are the F1 hybrids and are classed as dangerous animals. What such a beast would make of the bull terriers which abound in Sydenham is an intere...

Re: "White Tiger" kittens

Hill Dweller: We tried the vets. It appears that unless the kittens had an appointment with a vet, rather than a nurse or 'just passing through', there would be no record of them, and there was no record. BBW: We have checked out Toygers, most particularly the four UK breeders who are trying to achi...

"White Tiger" kittens

On 11th December last year I was at the Mayow Road Vet's to collect Percy the cat. Whist I was in the waiting room there was also present a gentleman with a carrying cage containing two kittens with unusual mackerel tabby markings such that they looked like small white tigers. I thought that they we...

Re: Planning application for Money Shop at 59 Sydenham Road

Tim beat me to it! I had logged in to the forum to report the receipt of the council 'refusal' letter. The Money Shop was nothing that I looked forward to.

Re: Have aliens ever landed in Baxter Fields?

I was chatting to an alien the other day and he assured me that they had never landed anywhere near Baxter Fields. I think some more mundane explanation is needed.

:) I agree with Willy. The kevlar in armoured clothing would be difficult to get a knife through, and reinforced boots and gloves can be excellent offensive weapons!

I am looking forward to traveling away from London. The prospect of being able to get to West Croydon, and the Whitgift Centre, by a service so regular that one doesn't need to check on the train times first is an attractive one.
