Re: free SE stuff

Hi this is in the wrong section, should be in the offered section at the bottom of the main page. Contact Admin, I'm sure it can be moved so people see it.

Re: #Lewisham2014

There was a vote for do you want a mayor but it was worded in such a way that I thought it sounded bias towards having one. I did call the council and tell them my thoughts on their pro's and con's of having one and basically got told I where to go. I voted against and would love another opportunity...

Re: se26 plant sales for 2014

Just back from the Cator Road plant sale, wonderful selection of plants with prices from 50p to £3, so please pop down, plenty of time still to grab a bargain and help 2 charities at the same time.

Re: se26 plant sales for 2014

Thanks Tim for the CND update. Went to the hornimans plant sale yesterday which was attached to the market this year. Prices seem dearer than last year and so many herbs this year. Nice market too, I've never been before.

Re: Project Zanzibar–creating a venue that’s right for Syden

Yep, had me awake too this morning. It had been so nice being able to sleep on Sunday mornings past 5am recently.
I'm in collingtree and my bedroom faces the petrol station/club exit so the sound to me is like being at the end of a megaphone, helped along by the trees in the green.

Re: Sydenham Market - Saturday, 10th May

Well I'm going to be out on a limb here, but I think it's expensive and way to much food. I'm a good cook and can make most of what they sell for a massive amount less, so the food side isn't of interest to me personally, and the craft things also seemed expensive for what they were. You can get a m...

According to this link he's on a base salary of £78,835 plus perks. http://alternativese4.com/tag/mayor-of-lewisham/ I didn't vote for us to have a mayor and I'm miffed that there has never been an option to end having one. Plenty of other people stand against him but with so many, the votes get dil...

Thank you for those dates Tim. Maybe we could keep this thread as somewhere to post plant sale dates as and when spotted.

I'd like an extra box on the Mayor vote, one that says No Mayor. Waste of £100k plus.

This cold be an interesting development which I think is great but not if I'm still going to be woken up between 2am and 5.30am then waiting for my alarm clock going off at 6.30am to go to work. Didn't have this problem when it was twilights. I'd be more interested if they offered to close at midnig...

Re: Japanese Knotweed, anyone?

There's knotweed in the green at Cobbs corner. It's spread to the garden next door to me. I did inform the council who said they were aware of it and monitoring it. It's not illegal to cut it down, it's illegal to dispose of it using a council dump or dumping it anywhere. It can be burned. You can g...

Re: Zanzibar Licence Review

If it wasn't for this forum I'd have known nothing about it and I can watch them from my windows setting up the BBQ on the garage forecourt. As someone who has been woken up many a night by shouting, car horns etc I'd really appreciate it if they closed down or closed at 11pm. Not every one works Mo...

Re: The Mean Streets of Sydenham

I've lived in Collingtree since '93 and we've had 1 attempted burglary recently and 1 that did happen in '08. The stabbing the other night was youths as I understand it and not a common thing for the area at all. I've lived in Sydenham since '63 so I've seen crime waves come and go. It was worse in ...

I drive a car, ride a bike and walk in Sydenham and I have to agree with you.

I'd like to see cyclists have to take a riding test to get a ...
