Re: old budgens

I actually think an M&S would do well. Products are distinctly different than the others (more so than Waitrose) and it would have the benefit of the Carpark so people would drive to it as well (like Beckenham)

Let’s hope that it’s not as glacial as the rest of the “movement” in Sydenham.

Re: New bakers to open in Kirkdale

I went to the lovely French Bakery in Lordship Lane yesterday. Wish we had something to like that in Upper Syd, particularly to add to the Cobbs Corner bit. They do all the pastries. Artisan breads, gorgeous cakes and have an eat in service like Patisserie Valerie. Huge variety of stuff and very busy.

Re: STILL NO SYDENHAM CHRISTMAS TREE OR LIGHTS?!

Oh for goodness sake, do you think that the average child or family cares about that? Turn the bloody things on and bring some joy to the high street.

Can’t they change it back so that Pizza Express could takevit on? They would be more than likely to show interest once Nandos and The Greyhound are in place and the site tidied up...

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

:D Frankly it would be nice to have both. Planners really missed a trick to sell the square and top end of the high street as an eating and drinking venue. That would have brought in so many visitors from other areas that would have benefitted all our little independents like the book shop. Such a l...

Re: black bin collection

Well this morning my bins weren’t emptied of general waste. The dustmen cleared everyone else but left mine. However I filled in the form on Bromley’s website as I waited at Penge East station on way to work. Got home after work and bins cleared. That’s the diffference between Bromley and those inco...

Re: 2017 Decent Christmas Decorations in High Street?

Everyone take photos of lights in other parts of town and post here sowe can compare after Christmas. Even Shortlands which is a junction and has no high street to speak of, blows Sydenham away every Year. It’s just one excuse after another, Frankly if we had more commercially strong businesses in S...

Re: sticky: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Anyone have connections with our local papers or Evening Standard? Possibly pick up the story of what vested interest the council has in objecting? Is there anything criminal going on as I see no real reason to object to something that will benefit the area commercially as well as providing a great ...

Im wondering why Rod isn't objecting to the Pubs, Cake Shop, off Licenses, sweet shops as they are all huge contributors to the calorie intake of the population.

Re: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

What a lot of waffle from The council. The people of Sydenham want this and not the unwelcome misguided opinions of a council that has messed up just about anything they have touched. Look at Lewisham compared to Southwarh and Lambeth and they fall far behind in development expertise. Shoddy and pat...
