It still looks a real mess from the back as you approach from Newlands Park

Re: Moving to Sydenham

A warm welcome - it is an amazing place to live. Affordable and accessible with loads of green pockets to enjoy and the ability to scoot out of town and the country as well with ease

Re: Bell Green Gas Holders - Proposal to Demolish in April 2

That’s not what is happening here. The point is to use the mechanism to secure something else of value for the area, not just another supermarket or similar addition which lacks ambition. Why should people in Sydenham not be more visionary and have both ambition and expectation of their town planner...

Re: New St Christopher's Charity Shop

I hope St Christopher’s do something nice with the facade - it is such a prominent corner on the High Street. It would be great if it looked super smart.

Re: Machete found after Sydenham school fight

I’m not a fan of the media posting pictures that inflame the situation. Kids carry knives mostly because they are afraid that other kids are carrying knives. The same can be said for the increase in size of the knife. Most are just scared little kids, full of fluctuating testosterone. My hope is tha...

Re: Building work by Penge east station

Whilst saddened, i can’t say I am that surprised. It seemed to be lacking a clear “identity”. Obviously a coffee shop, but lacking any clear branding or soul aesthetically. It would not have had me cantering down the road to spend.Good Coffee is an expensive luxury, and I would want to be pre-sold w...

Re: Been to The Greyhound yet?

Pretty standard to be without a seat during peak foodie periods - it’s the same in The Dolphin on busy days and they have a great floor plate to work with. What the Greyhound could probably do with, is a few high poseur tables in the Centre with some handbag clips beneath. I’m happy to stand / mingl...

Re: Syd Society help request for pavement opposite library?

Hissingsyd - If you draft a generic email / letter and post it here along with an email address, I would be happy to add my voice to your complaints as I agree, it brings down the tone of the Home Park area. These issues have a wider impact on society than we often give them credit for. Whats the na...

Have emailed Geoff.
Perryman - your post was very relevant, and welcome.
Whether retained or demolished, the land needs to be sorted out properly and something of equal architectural interest and benefit to the local area built to replace it.
We need to see this as an opportunity.
