Re: Car in Venner Square

Hilarious update. There now appears to be a water leak from the paving under the car so the Council will HAVE to move the car to repair the leak or perhaps not! You couldn't make it up!

Re: Station approach - new toilet

I understand the Turdis/toilet is on the agenda for the Sydenham Assembly meeting planned for Thursday 17 th It was through a motion at Sydenham Assembly last autumn that we got The Greyhound back on the council's agenda. Turn up on 17 September and ensure the Turdis part of the discussion. Pat, I ...

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

You know very well what I mean....it was not too long ago that the great and good on this forum were complaining about companies like Tesco, Sainsburys (more of the same) moving in....they are offering nothing different... Is it not the council that determines usage...they could have made it non ret...

Re: Car in Venner Square

I really don't see the difference between this and me illegally using the square or pavement as a car parking space. In fact, as I keep saying, if I were to park in one of the car parking bays for longer than 40 mins I would receive a Ticket and be subsequently towed. So the message is that If I dri...

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

If they were going to have a Supermarket chain, then at least something different that offers something we don't already have.....a Marks and Spencer's or a Waitrose .... I would have much rather the whole area be handed overr to on eateries .... People see not going to come into the area for a smal...

Re: Station approach - new toilet

Re: Car in Venner Square

Has the broken signpost been removed ? Once it is, there will no doubt be a jagged piece of metal sticking out of the pavement for someone to trip over. God forbid a child falls on it as they are often playing in the square. As I've noticed, Lewisham does not seem to care about the safety of its Syd...

Ok, I will try to be patient :roll: The last good memory I have is of having a nice few pints outside with 16 friends before being picked up by a coach to take me to my "Stag do"....16 years ago this month! Any news on the other unit occupiers? Is Sainsburys still moving in (hope not) ...w...

Re: Car in Venner Square

Whilst I agree that the owner should remove, and before blame is cast...it may have been stolen for a joyride, it is up to the Council to ensure that its walkways are kept clear and safe. I stand by my earlier email that it is a potential danger for the aforementioned reasons. In addition I reiterat...

Anyway I've had my rant...lol...so wait for this increase in activity with bated breath.... Does anyone know that if, let's say it's completed by Christmas, if there is anyone lined up to take it on?
