Re: Activity in old Coop

What are you guys doing for sanitation?
I’m glad you’ve switched the lights off so we’ll done.

Re: Social distancing on the High Road

I haven’t noticed any difference between Penge and Sydenham. Also haven’t noticed that people are oblivious in Sydenham to it! Seems to me people are avoiding each other in a sensible manner.

Re: Sydenham Grand Prix

I’ve seen a group of quad bikers gathered by the Clarke’s bus depot by Lower Sydenham recently. They use that stretch of road to rev and test their bikes it seems. Properly noisy. Not sure the police give a monkey’s though, or more likely they can’t really afford the time to collar them.

Activity in old Coop

In other news...quite a lot of activity in the old Coop yesterday. Some guys drilling some piles into the floor to see what the foundation depth was.
The guys didn’t seem to know what was going on, but movement nonetheless.

Re: Black cabbies in celebration.....

Tbh, I would rarely use a cab to go into London, so the main reason is to come home.
Also, the majority of Uber vehicles are hybrid, which can’t be said for black cabs.

Uber needs to change a few things, but it is defo a thing for good for me, and I would have less in my pocket as a result

Re: Theft in broad daylight

Horror story - your friend's case to be argued with the supplier, deliverer and respective insurance companies will be a tale to be told too. On Perry Hill the fastest drive-by pick-up in daylight is around six minutes. Average 12-25 minutes for white goods. Once watched an eastern European lady li...

Re: Mad Dough

Regarding Hibagon providing "world-class Japanese food", all I know is that any time it's open there's virtually no customers eating there, and they're always advertising for staff. I admit I haven't eaten at Hibagon, or ordered a takeaway, and I recall when it first opened six or seven y...

Shame if it doesn't open in former Toys are Us
Well the signs are up outside the premises and they appear to be fitting it out, so I reckon that’s a fair sign it’s happening

Re: Knighton Park Road

Yet another near collision outside my house... JUST much hooting of horns and shouts of abuse! Collision, or near collision? Surely there have been two or three in the last fortnight, but they were collisions. Not near collisions. Please only report on (including photos of) collisions. Near collisi...

Re: Knighton Park Road

I already posted my solution. For those who think there is no problem... it is outside my house where the fisticuffs generally happen along with the regular collisions. On average there is a collision once a fortnight. The screaming of abuse and fisticuffs are about as frequent. I have never seen a...

Re: Knighton Park Road

I would like to know who has priority on the high street then? If the flats above and the retail units below helped pay for it, how dare anyone have a greater right to use it? Scandalous :wink:

Also, I have lived in KPR for quite a few years, and there really isn’t a problem.

A lot of demolition work went on but it came to a halt. I believe there is an intention to purchase Sivyer's yard and incorporate that.
