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

I would rather they developed the area properly and made a vibrant retail park they brought business into the area. We need money and families coming in to visit complimentary shops, We could also benefit with some entertainment for our young-uns. A big cinema, bowling alley, other food offerings to...

Wish list for Sydenham

I did one of these a few years ago. I'm excluding Kirkdale but including our Retail Park which in my opinion was very poorly planned as it does not retain trade for more than a few mins, due to lack of variety. The offerings Judy don't compliment each other. So what would you like to see down there ...

Re: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Great news
It's about time we started getting stuff that will keep people around for business (I'm thinking families) rather that Sydenham being a cut through to other areas
It will hopefully enliven the "square" at the top .

Re: The Alexandra

I've been there twice and on both occasions enjoyed it very much. This in not a "boozer" and shows up a lot of the boring pubs in Sydenham. A great start for these newbies to the pub trade. Can't wait for them to start the kitchen. I tried several different IPAs in the schooners (the glass...

Re: Christmas lights in Sydenham?

How pathetic...strapped for cash (?), Lewisham is spending all over the place...also the lights can be reused. I'm fed up with our dreadful lot. Tonight I was in Bromley so decided to drive back via Shortlands (more of an intersection than a town), Beckenhan and Penge. All have made an effort in bri...

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

Much rather there were some eateries....anything that would turn this into a goto destination....especially at Christmas and over the Summer. We need to reach some sort of critical mass in our desirable establishments to achieve the success of Beckenham, Crystal Palace or Bromley.at a push I rather ...

Re: Bromley's new streetlighting

There is one directly outside my house and of course my bedroom, however I like a lot of folks have blackout lining in my curtains being west facing (sunsets). The lights are also cleverly angled to cover the pavement and street so actually cause me less if a nuisance than the old round ones which I...

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

When they say construction due to be completed in November and notwithstanding all the other missed deadlines, does that mean all electricity, plumbing, internal finishing ready for Pub "fit out" or just a basic shell...like the units behind. In which case, I can't see it being ready for u...

Re: Guardian's Let's Move To... feature

Whilst we promote Sydenham, perhaps this is a good opportunity to highlight the awful Greyhound debacle, and maybe give Purelake the kick up the Arse they they need?

Re: Sydenham improvement works

Maybe fines imposed on the businesses that are dumping would pay for it. Also some councils now have spot fines for spitting, gum etc.

Re: Sydenham improvement works

Anyone else noticed how awful the pavements are looking with oil stains etc
Round bus stops, bins, lamp posts.
It's particularly awful opposite Venner Sq.
Any chance they can get one if those little cleaning trucks to go up and down one night or a few guys with a jet wash? Is that too much to ask?

I really cannot take it seriously that people are suggesting that we fund even a bit of this. It's the bloody Councils job to get this right and correct their incompetence. How do the other Councils get it right? Do we just pay for the privilege of having a bunch of incompetents in charge? Notwithst...
