Re: High Street Wishlist

A cinema. Would love one, but where? Maybe they'll put one in the new shopping complex in Bell Green but that's not really the High St. Having a tiny nostalgic picture house won't cut it with the younger folk so it has to be big, digital, 3D etc etc. [ Post made via Mobile Device ] http://sydenham....

Re: High Street Wishlist

Funny thing is that I was in East Dulwich in the 70's 80's then moved to Forest Hill because it was nicer in the early 90's then again to Sydenham as it was nicer still in late 90's . What's happened since? East Dulwich is now ranked top with Forest Hill high st. a distant 2nd and Sydenham High Stre...

Re: Going over old ground - The Hound that is Grey

Totally agree with lee. We need to know these things in advance if only to prevent another corner grocer/bad off licence, hairdresser, estate agent (although at least they look good), tat merchant etc. Why is that I read that some communities are able to reject certain establishments (some of which ...

Still thinking...but you know what...I'd quite like a really good little cycle shop that does repairs etc. like Deans in Beckenham.

Re: "so people build c--p.”

Au contraire, a lady desperate for you lot to all bugger off to the Pub (virtual or actual, I don't mind) and leave this section of the forum to its intended purpose. I quite agree. As a newbie to the forums I have noted that at times the discussions seem to develop into a "virtual pissing con...

Re: Sydenham high street: street furniture

How about lloyds Bank sponsoring the 2 boxes. Get the old style red boxes and refurbish them and paint in lloyds bank green. Good publicity for the local bank and a lot of community goodwill. BT gets new boxes and everyone is happy. Anyone know how much it would cost? Just an idea. [ Post made via M...

High Street Wishlist

I haven't yet had a good think about what I would like but how about everyone listing their 5 to 10 most wanted additions to the High Street. You can - add to something already present (another cafe) - modify something (suggest a refurbishment to an existing business) - suggest something entirely ne...

That truly is an awful post by Posh!! What an outrageous statement re Indian Restaurant staff. If you have such an imbedded and quite frankly racist view of Indian Restaurant "staff", why on earth did you go to an Indian restaurant? This strikes me as a post with a "not so hidden"...

Would just like to refresh this post. It's a great place which I enjoy visiting with my young son. It's now a special Dad and Son thing for us as they treat him like a man and not an inconvenient child as they usually do in "hairdressers". He loves the "smart" side parting "...

Re: Tesco Coming to Sydenham Road

I totally agree that the current area is an eyesore so having someone in there will hopefully improve things but it strikes me that our high street is becoming dominated by mini supermarkets, tatty shops, bloody estate agents and chicken shops. We need some variety. Problem is what can go next to th...

Re: 5 year anniversary

Since 1996 and in the same house since 1999. I love the transport links and the green spaces. People are so surprised to know how quickly I can get to Victoria, London Bridge or Blackfriars. I am really excited about what Sydenham may become - that's why I'm sticking with it. [ Post made via Mobile ...

Re: Going over old ground - The Hound that is Grey

I do agree and I always wanted a great pub there but will there be enough room for a good "foodie" there. Perhaps the developer will have enough imagination to make it a 2 floor pub ... Now that would be something. The seats outside are a must as far as I'm concerned. I really hate the tho...

Re: Council rules and cafes

I used to live in Barry road East Dulwich from the mid 70's to the late 80's and the area around Lordship Lane was a bit of a dump. Now look at it and the surrounding pubs. Sydenham planners need to aspire beyond the dreadful shops full of tat, fast food chicken outlets or nail bars. And definitely ...

Re: Council rules and cafes

Hi leenewham. Shame really. I always wanted the Greyhound there but the way things are looking I hold little hope for a decent pub. I pictured a great congregation space/ focal point for people with seats outside. Unfortunately the dark alley around the back doesn't look like anything but a muggers ...

Re: Council rules and cafes

Just joined tonight and this is my second post on the subject of tables...see the Greyhound topic. Anyway I firmly believe that if we start to have good cafes with tables outside that people will come. Why would Sydenham be any different than every other "aspiring village" in London. Look ...

Re: Going over old ground - The Hound that is Grey

Forgive me if this has been said elsewhere (this is my first visit and I'm playing catchup), but notwithstanding the "legal bits" I think that the most desirable development would be to knock down the pub. It should be replaced by a paved plaza with possibly a sculpture or trees. I would a...
