Re: Old Florist next to Lidl

Thanks Annie I do my best to amuse. Seriously though where have all these nail bars come from. Money cannot be tight in SE26 as they seem to be flourishing and one would think way at the bottom of a ladies priorities , even if on the list at all. Haha, I have never had my nails "done" so I don't kn...

Always puzzled with the number of nail shops. Originally I thought DIY Shops but now understand in reality shop for old people who cannot cut their nails. Very sad. Their relations should assist.

Re: Old Florist next to Lidl

Just been reading through the posts here. You know what? It smacks a bit of snobbery and narrowmindedness. The vast majority of Sydenham's community don't post here nor represent every culture we do have here on our doorsteps. I am a strong believer that there is enough good fortune out there for e...

Re: Save the Greyhound Campaign

Apologies... I've had more than a few and edited my post after you replied.... it made sense when I posted it but I'm hammered. The building was doomed from the minute the pub was closed down. It had a preservation order put on it but hey, developers have more cash than councils. Dodgy fire. Unauth...

If there is a online petition to sign that will not show me personally then I would gladly sign it. I understand where Eagle is coming from. But good for you Andwar...

Re: Support your local Turkish supermarket!

That is actually wonderful. I wish families were that "social" these days too. Todays demands make it quite difficult to synchronise such meets. Out of all my friends, only myself and one other is a stay at home mum. And she's all the way in Sidcup. I wonder though, would people be interested in co...

To be honest I'm more often offended by the language of and intimidated by the faux gangster posterings of bunches of kids walking up the High Street.

I used to work 'uptown' for a large global financial institution... on more than one occasion I witnessed supposedly respectable city suits being abusive and threatening staff of a convenience store in the Strand because the booze cabinet wasn't open dead on 8am.
