Tragedy. It was Musti's Pound Plus Store - the best of the Sydenham 'pound shops'. Fire damage seems to be to the rear of the store. They claim they will be open again in a fortnight. I wonder if they will have a Fire Sale?

The survey is not neutral in the sense that what it is trying to determine is if public attitudes tick the boxes which would be required to justify a drinking ban.

I haven't, am i the only one? There is no information of what actually in practise a 'controlled drinking Zo...

32 & 34 Sydenham Road (Grove and Priory Cottages) are Grade II listed. Supposed to be the oldest semi-detached dwellings in London.
