Mamma Dough

Now that Nando’s is open, I thought I’d start a separate thread for any news on Mamma Dough.

There was no indication of works starting when I walked by earlier.

Does anyone have any insight?

Re: Begging outside Sainsbury's local

http://www.ukcrimestats.com/Neighbourhood/8302 I think I’ll stick with what the crime stats are telling me on this one. Sydenham’s not perfect - there is always room for improvement (and opportunity for people to be even nicer to each other), but there is no giant crime wave upon us. Clearly Some h...

Re: Dylon works - FT reports L&Q buying bulk for social hous

Wells Park Place? They didn’t receive sign off for occupation on time apparently and buyers were frustrated because the move date kept... moving. Although I think it’s sorted or almost and some will be taking occupation now(ish) All local gossip, so not entirely sure. From the website, Most of the f...

Re: Begging outside Sainsbury's local

I agree with Stuart, I have lived in London for 20 years and have felt unsafe only a handful of times (never here, couple of times late at night walking through New Cross/Central London when there has been an altercation). That said I understand that one witnessed, these incidents can invoke genuine...

Re: sticky:RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

This is fantastic!
So difficult to predict trade levels at and around launch date.

Yay for Sydenham!

Re: Penge Homebase closed - now Bunnings warehouse

I went there yesterday and failed to be able to buy the wasp powder I wanted.

I noticed that they were trying to sell off a Garden table and chair set for double the original sale price but claiming it was discounted.

....a signage company somewhere is doing well out of this one assumes!

Re: Wasps Nest

Thanks all. I’m going to give it a go tonight. There seem to be two entrances but I think I’ll start by targeting one liberally and quickly withdrawing and see how that goes and then repeat both on second visit if activity is low and it seems to have broadly effective. I’m going to wrap up well firs...

Re: Wasps Nest

So, powder I can buy for about £6 Good old YouTube led me to a video advising that: It's best to treat in the late evening when the wasps are less active.

Wasps Nest

I think I have spied a little activity. Looks like it is likely a fairly small affair.
Has anybody tackled one by themselves or is this a really bad idea (?!)
And does anybody know anyone rock bottom cheap that can help who is reliable (I'm out of work at the moment)

This is the first I have ever heard about its’s existence. What kind of restaurant was it? Not a very catchy name. When I drive by earlier, it seemed to say “buffet” - I was rather focussed on the road!
