Re: Bell Green, Dillwyn Rd in the 60's

This is such a lovely thread. I have nothing to contribute other than reading others' memories is making me smile and remember my own childhood which was not around here though. :)

Re: Lewisham wide 20mph roads

@ Eagle I know there is research to show that if people are hit at 20mph there is a higher survival rate etc. If there had been dozens of pedestrians knocked over and hurt/injured on the roads I would understand it but there hasn't been. I am not against targeted speed reductions at particularly dan...

Re: Lewisham wide 20mph roads

Really interesting replies, thanks. Having just re read my post I am surprised there weren't any quips about me being a "toad" user!

Lewisham wide 20mph roads

Are any other drivers out there struggling with the new 20mph roads? It seems that most roads are now 20mph although some aren't so one of the issues I have is the confusion. I try really hard to stick to the speed limits on any toad I use but going at 20mph on main roads is extremely hard, especial...

Re: car boot sales

I went to one a few years ago near the Downham Homebase. I can't remember the name but it was a football club. It was probably 4 years or so.

Well, I haven't heard back from the council but the Sydenham newsletter for Summer 2016 has been delivered today and there is some information in there about recycling.

Re: Refuse Collection

Well, reporting concerns to the Council is not as easy as it used to be. I emailed envirocall as I have done in the past to get a reply saying I have to log the concern on the relevant form. I have done that so we will see. I also should have pointed out to them how ambiguous their recycling informa...

Re: Refuse Collection

@ Rachael: Our bin has always said "no textiles" so you didn't misinterpret what I wrote. It's about 12 yrs old by the way. I don't doubt that yours allowed textiles. Our recycle bin was not emptied once, just left with a tag label tied on saying "contaminated". It scared me a bit at the time wonde...

Re: Refuse Collection

Well our bin was collected today. Hurray! I think we must have just been an oversight as the neighbours' bins were emptied last week.

Re: Refuse Collection

Thanks for all the replies. I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't know about the changes to the green bin accepted items. I've signed up for the brown bin garden waste collections. Bin day today. Fingers crossed my smelly grey wheelie bin gets emptied, not just the recycling one!

Refuse Collection

I am just wondering if anyone else completed the survey about refuse and recycling carried out by Lewisham Council at some point in 2015. If so, any idea of the outcomes? I wonder if the garden waste collection is part of it in response to comments. I am also wondering if they are going to reduce ot...

Re: The Woodhouse

I haven't been for YEARS. In the 90s I used to go for lunch sometimes which was great. They had a barbecue in the summer. I think I last went after they had a refurb (probably at least 5 years ago). We had a sunday roast which wasn't particularly nice so never went back. There are so many good place...

Re: Sydenham Market is back on 2nd Saturday of the month

I am going to sound so negative and I don't want to be. Our monthly market just feels like it is dying. I go along most months when it is on to try and buy something but it is just not grabbing me. It seems that fewer and fewer people attend it and the buzz has gone. I did enjoy the music yesterday ...

Re: vote for the best coffee in Sydenham

I enjoy the lattes in Brown & Green in Mayow Park. Sorry for non supporters of chains but I also enjoy the coffee in Costa by Sainsburys. I used to be a regular in Kente but no longer; sadly it has gone down hill so much.
