"Daily Price Capping Daily Price Capping with Oyster pay as you go, ensures that passengers who make multiple journeys on public transport in a day in London will never be charged more than the price of the equivalent Day Travelcard or One Day Bus Pass." I hope that answers my question: on a number...

Kirkdale Business Centre at Cobbs Corner has space as well, I believe. No contacts I'm afraid, you might need to look for the door and ask! Thought I'd post some feedback here in case it's of use to anyone else - am currently making a huge effort to find somewhere owing to a very noisy neighbour pl...

As far as I can see, most of the disruption has been down to the postcode-selective strikes going on in central London for the last few weeks: http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/content1?catId=1000002&mediaId=99700760 For instance, I mailed a letter first class from the office a week or two ago whic...

I'm all for worker's rights, but I'm also aware that, in these straightened times, downing tools for the sake of 0.5%, isn't likely to endear you to the populace; what I hear a lot is "these people should be grateful they've got a job", or words to that effect. I think that, for a lot of people in ...

Needing somewhere to work from

Hi. I'm just about to start a new life as a freelancer, but my dining room table's way too small to work off, and I'm stuck for space for storing papers, books etc. I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere in the Sydenham/Penge/Anerley/Beckenham/Croydon area where there might be some sort of small...

Re: Evening rush hour trains from LB cut by one third in 201

I’m afraid that we have uncovered a further piece of bad news for local rail users. From May 2010, Southern intend to cut evening rush hour services from LB from 6 trains per hour to 4tph. Southern will look at the situation again in December 2010 (when they have a delivery of extra carriages) to s...

The peak time might be of more concern to some of you but it is the high frequency of trains off-peak which makes our route to London Bridge so darn brilliant. They run, generally, at 10 minute intervals throughout the day, so no need for timetables at all, almost like a tube train. We really do no...

Similar messageboard for Penge?

Hi, I'm a newbie here, came across this site totally by accident a few months ago. Since my Sydenham "address" is very much on the Penge side of Sydenham, and much of this board seems to relate to the High-Street/Kirkdale sort of area, I was wondering if anyone knew of a similar board covering Penge...
