Re: Two more shops closed

I suspect the Ladbrooks will be another Estate Agent. I hope I'm wrong.

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

Wonder what odds I would have gotten in one of our numerous local bookies that the pub still would not be open in July 2017.
Should have enquiried a few years ago.
Now you wouldn't get an "odds on" bet that anything of significance would open in Sadenham

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

And me. Other residents who have dipped in have been scared off. Too much bile...or people trying to compete in either insulting, politicising, intellectualising, or just complaining. Look at some of the threads - what have they achieved? As a percentage, very little that has actually added to the a...

Re: sydenham needs an uplifting

Lovely day yesterday in Beckenham. Popped into bike shop for a peek and talk about servicing our bikes, went to Cinema, then WH Smith's to pick up school bits for Son. Then cinema and finally M&S for food and treats Today East Dulwich. Barbers for son then that lovely pizza place La Manca. Then ...

Re: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Wouldn't be surprised if they gave up. Who will bother with Sydenham when they have to deal with Lewisham.
You would think they might use their brains for once and fast track something that will bring money into the area as well as providing a much needed venue for families and teens.

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

Wouldn't be surprised if squatters moved in soon! I completely understand about the new owners wanting to sort out planning permission for some beautification but that should not stop the rest of the fit out. Why not do the rest of the work so that you can take advantage of the summer months and ear...

Re: sydenham needs an uplifting

There is a tendency to be defensive about Sydenham, on this forum. However this has been going on for years snd Sydenham is definitely the poor relation compared to East Dulwich, Beckenham, Crystal Palace, Forest Hill and even now Penge. I've been here 20 years - I used t live in East Dulwich in the...

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

I understand what you are saying but again I ask why was the original planning granted for a site design like that. Some imagination with restrictions on the part of those granting the permissions may have resulted in something more desirable. There are many instances of flats near or over cafes and...

Re: Wish list for Sydenham

Regarding eateries, we also need mid point between restaurants and the coffee shops that we have (which don't offer enough variety food wise). The type we need are those are busy daytime and evening. That would be places like Nandos or Pizza Express. One or 2 of those would bring in people and that ...

Overwhelming response from everyone. Do we have any imagination? If we don't set out a target we have nothing to aim for.

Nonsense. All of the aforementioned areas make Sydenham look like a wasteland.

You misunderstand what I am saying.

Saying that a square with good restaurants and cafes was never in the cards....why not...

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

I would be interested to find out the unemployment rate of Lower Sydenham vs Upper. Frankly I stand by what I said and I bet the people in "lower" would welcome lots of new jobs within walking distance. Our high street is not desirable and the gap between the site and anything of interest ...
