Re: Burglaries

Burgled twice in two weeks! That is awful. It's such an invasion of your personal space. I hope the scumbags are caught and that you manage to get over the trauma quickly.

Has Anyone Lost a Male Tabby Cat?

There's one that's been hanging around my garden for the past week, ravenous and tame. I am in upper Sydenham of Westwood Hill.

Re: Birds of prey in Sydenham

Do the sparrowhawks actually eat the pigeons or just play with them until they die?

Spartacus, whereabouts do you live? I might know that woman who feeds the pigeons.

Re: evening activities

Hi I highly recommend the choir on Monday evenings at 7pm at St Christopher's Hospice. It's a great social and supportive experience and you don't have to be experienced at singing. It's open to complete beginners and great fun! If you don't feel comfortable singing you can always go and watch first...

Re: Christmas lights in Sydenham?

How can we ensure that better Xmas decorations are installed next year?? I'm getting sick of the High Street in Sydenham looking like it is poverty stricken. I feel ashamed of being a resident when it comes to the embarrassing Xmas lights on the lampposts (with half the lights blown). Who's in charg...
