Re: St Philip Neri Meeting - Thursday 19 July 7pm

Good update, but what did they say about the actual building and the aesthetics? I thought the main point was whether they felt they contravened the original approved plans and that they were going to, in the first instance, get the cladding changed?

Re: Obstruction of Knighton Park Road

I have to say I rarely have to park too far away from my house, but then again I am at work during the day, so I guess as my car is already there, I have a space so to speak - if I am there during the day and go out, I am often looking for a different space no doubt. The permit situation is a tough ...

Re: Obstruction of Knighton Park Road

Do you know who is responsible? Is the block owned by Hexagon?
I've had a brief look on the interweb and can't find any clues - I think a strong letter needs to be written as it seems there either aren't enough bins or there are simply not enough collections....but it's pretty foul

Re: Obstruction of Knighton Park Road

The other issue here is that the waste lorries can't get down from the high st and don't seem to want to reverse all the way down from the Hillmore Gv end - thus the flats at the end of the road never have their bins collected - it looks pretty filthy Park House has its bins collected separately.

Re: Loud motorbike revving can be heard from Westwood Hill

We have heard them for the last couple of nights, although interestingly not last night. There have always been a few bikes around since I've lived here - I know of three that are residents of the flats next to Home Pk - and they fly along the high st at night. Seems they have gained a few pals. It ...

Re: The Monstrosity - ie St Philp Neri school building

To be honest, it is too early for me to make suggestions about improvements, although I certainly could make some! First, we need to hear from Lewisham on their next steps in the matter. This is not going to be a quick fix, and I believe that we should both focus attention on the planning failures,...

Re: I’m being spied on

I'm sure that however the Labour Party got information about (or guessed) your previous voting patterns, it won't have been by illegally tracing your ballot paper(s) through the unique number. If that sort of thing went on, we would have heard about it and it would constitute a major political scan...

Re: The Monstrosity

I live as a neighbour of the St Philip Neri school in Fairlawn Park, and am appalled by its design quality. It is the kind of structure you expect on an industrial estate, not in such a prominent position. Lewisham Council has let us down appallingly over this development, especially after a notabl...

There is also one that has just opened up in the back of the pet shop on the high street. There are now the same number of dog grooming salons as nail bars and undertakers.

Re: Lewisham Council and Trees

Hopefully that’s the case here too then, but last time they completely removed the tree, stump and all, and this is the wrong time of year to prune cherry - should be done in the summer to avoid disease (unlike other trees). Think that was because it was too close to a house and buckling the paveme...

Re: Poodle club

I completely agree with Lord Summerisle. What I really liked about Beer Rebellion was that place was genuinely open to everyone, great 'bringing together community' feel.... Me too, feeling sad for that community gathering opportunity lost and really hope that Poodle club is not staying just as a w...

Re: Billings Christmas food

Been a fan since day one, and also used to buy from Hugh when he was down at the bottom of the high street - great shop. They seem to thrive. I definitely spend more cash in there than I need to. Eggs are wonderful, and they have a really good selection of cheese. Fish is always beautifully presente...

Re: New bakers to open in Kirkdale

Personally I am a fan of the bread in The Cake Store. The baguettes are not great, but the farmhouse, I believe, is a triumph. I think they could do with some sourdough to fit in with the 'new old' world of high qual ingredients, and probably some ciabatta or focaccia etc, but when I have asked them...

Re: food waste collection

All seems fine to me on this excellent initiative. Also cuts down the smell of the black bins. I haven’t changed my house bin for a week or so as the recycling and the food waste system cut down the smell so less need to change it. Whoever wrote earlier that they were laughing about foxes etc, the b...
