Re: Travellers in Girton Road car park

There is a small group parked up in the Bell Green retail park car park in front of the former Toys R Us store. I think 2 caravans and 2 or 3 camper van/mobile home vehicles. Apparently they arrived last night.

Re: Kennel

How local do you want it to be? I know someone in Bexley who does home boarding for dogs. PM me if you are interested.

Power cuts

Has anyone else experienced power cuts recently? We’ve had 2 in the past week - last Friday morning and again this evening. We are in lower Sydenham.

Re: Fox in house

I think the local vixen used to use our garden as a creche; one summer she had about 6 cubs with her bouncing around all over the place. While they looked cute we didn’t feed them and actively discouraged them. I did a bit of fox proofing having researched various methods which definitely cut down o...

Re: Boarded up shop near Costcutters

I remember when it was a Thai restaurant. In those days (early 90s) we were lucky enough to have 2 brilliant Thai restaurants in the area; there was also one on Dartmouth Road. The one on Dartmouth Road was turned into a Mexican place I think. Anyone else remember this?

Re: Some sort of bar/beer shop

Did Bottle Cave open yet? I was in the East Dulwich one last weekend and the guy said it would open on Tuesday. Just driven down the high street and the shutters are down though.

Hi Sophie,

I contacted the planning officer about this. Apparently the footway will be repaired once the building works are all completed.

Thanks Prince. That is good to hear.

Re: Waste Collection

I am in total agreement about our road sweepers. In fact, if I can find out how to do it now you can’t email the environment team directly, I will let the council know.

Re: food waste collection

Hurray! The food waste was collected yesterday. I haven’t had any response to my 2 complaints other than an automated reply. Thanks for the email Thorno. I’ll keep it for future. We had our 2nd fortnightly black bin collection this week. I was initially resistant to the idea of fortnightly collectio...

Re: food waste collection

Has your food waste bin been collected though? Ours hasn’t for the 2nd week. I will check with my neighbours to see if theirs was taken today although it hadn’t been last week.

Re: Waste Collection

Well our food waste wasn't collected which was really annoying. I had followed the council's instructions to the letter! I emailed the address I had which came back with an instruction to inform them via a form on the website which then wouldn't load. I chatted with one of my neighbours and it seems...

I hope that the new Greyhound thrives when it opens after all the talk on this forum! BTW the ... Firkin was "Fewterer and Firkin" with, I seem to remember, the word fewterer being something to do with greyhounds. Whoever mentioned it has taken me right back to the 90s and my much younger ...
