Re: Newlands Park

How about making those roads quiet by putting in barriers half way along each of them, so the northern ends would only be accessed from Tredown, the southern section from Venner. You could also stop rat-running in Homecroft by doing the same halfway along. I've seen it done successfully in various a...

The Library will be closed this coming Saturday, 21st July, as we are very short of volunteers. Some volunteers are on holiday, some have found jobs! We would really like more volunteers, including brave people who can open and staff the building, people who can call in for a couple of hours and hel...

Re: Moving to Sydenham

Are you looking for a house? You won't find many in Sydenham for £500k unfortunately. But there's a bit of a cluster in the streets off Sydenham road opposite Home Park - Larkbere, Highclere, Sunnydene, Holmshaw, Adamsrill. Others would have to comment on what these streets are like as I don't know ...

Re: Sainsbury's news

It goes back to the whole local demographics thing, we just don’t seem to be on the coffee chain’s radar (yet!).

Unlike Penge it seems (Costa).
Can't be long until that happens!

Re: Lewisham Election Results

We need proportional representation (not that it would have made any difference in Sydenham).
That should mean more people might vote, more get engaged. You might even get canvassing!

I must say I agree with Stuart on this one. I don't think the gas holders are particularly valuable.

Re: Sydenham book club needs new members

Yes we would welcome both of you. Just come along on the 28 Feb at around 7.30 in the Golden Lion. But only if you've read this month's book, which is Dead Babies by Martin Amis. As it happens, this is quite a short novel, less than 200 pages. You'll find us because the book will be on our table. Mike

Re: Syd Society help request for pavement opposite library?

Would like to add my support for sorting out the lower end of the High St: 1. from the area from the Lovely Gallery to Kent House road - where various cars are parked on the pavement for most of the day. Ridiculous. Unsightly. Totally unpoliced in any real sense. 2. Opposite the library (where I vol...
