Re: Sydenham Hub - Jill - Peh!

I'm really disappointed. I was under the impression that the Sydenham Hub was going to be somewhere vibrant where people could hang out, with somewhere to sit, have a coffee and a chat. Where you can pick up info on local events and causes, etc. I get the impression that it's more of a showcase for ...

Re: RIP DYLON FACTORY

I love this building too. It is beautiful. I would love to be able to see inside and take photos. It would be such a shame for it to be knocked down. Is there no way that we can save it? How can it be allowed for a listed building to be demolished? Doesnt make any sense. :x

Re: 3 wheelie bins at the end of Hall Drive

Regardless of whoever it was who dumped the rubbish a big WELL DONE to LondonCalling for taking the initiative and ringing the council. :D :D Otherwise, who knows how long those full bins would have been left there... It's local individuals like LondonCalling that deserve a big pat on the back for t...

Re: Amex: supporting small shops?

Looks like Blue Mountain are one of the enterprises included in this. According to the Amex website. Yeh! :D

Re: Support your local French bakery!

It's Sunday morning, peeing with rain and I've just been to La Bonne Bakery and bought a nice freshly baked loaf which I have just had with scrambled eggs. The bread is delicious! I also got myself a freshly baked almond croissant - a treat for later. What a luxury it is to have a bakery offering su...

Re: Amex: supporting small shops?

I also received one. Unfortunately, I find that smaller independent businesses do not accept Amex due to the high charges imposed on them by Amex. Therefore, I doubt the promotion would be much of a success. No wonder they are offering such a great deal in the flyer because you'll be hard pressed on...

I wonder if they're going to move out of the shop opposite once the work at the Woodman is finished?

Re: NEW OPENINGS, NEW CLOSINGS

I just hope that's a temporary window to cover up the fit-out inside until they open... It is awful and cheap looking and shouldn't be allowed as a permanent shopfront. As a resident of Sydenham I am getting fed up with the low quality, garish and shoddy shopfronts of most of the shops on Sydenham R...

Looks like the house was gutted by looking at the height of those flames. Awful. I feel sorry for whoever lived there. :(

Re: Cobbs Corner Roundabout

This wonky roundabout is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. It's stiff, bereft of life, it rests in peace... It's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-wonky roundabout! :D http://i1148.photobucket.com/albums/o575/owl_wise/Cobbs%20Cor...

Re: Cattery or Cat Sitter

I've also used CatCalls. They were brilliant. They gave them treats and spent time with them. My cats ignored me when I got back from holiday but looked like they were well loved whilst I was away.

I highly recommend them.

I think your photographs a great Paul. You have a great eye. My fave's the one of the kids and their chalk drawings on the ground...and the photo of the flying crow...and the one of the street lamp... :lol:

I agree. The replacement looks tragic. It's unpleasant to the eye and ruins the landscape. It's just a big ugly box. :x

Re: Sushi of Sydenham

The best sushi by far around these parts is Sapporo in Catford (behind the town hall). The food is great, the portions are not stingy and the price is right AND it is always busy. I have often ordered and picked up (because they do not deliver). Take a leaf out of their book and if you open up in Sy...
