Re: Car in Venner Square

It beggars belief the council do not move it and should have done long ago. They will probably have to in the long run. I assume owner not reported stolen so they can be held responsible for all costs. So many parts of the car have been removed now that the owner probably wants someone to steal it.

Re: Car in Venner Square

A week later and the car is still there despite the removal warnings. Someone has however removed the 3 Penalty tickets from the window, likely not the owner though.

Re: Car in Venner Square

Well, the 2nd car has gone. The first car seems to have been frisked for parts and now has 2 penalty charge tickets and a notice for "Removal and/or Destruction" placed upon it.

Re: Car in Venner Square

Yes, another car there now. Perhaps the council will now install some bollards when the cars have been removed, if they aver are. Is the new one smashed up too?? I only pass there on my way home, not on the way to work. I'll take a photo tonight and tweet it to start a twitter storm. By my reckonin...

Re: Mopeds

Well I live up by Sydenham station above the shops on the high street and can concur, they come down through here every weekend and sometimes midweek in the evenings, very loud and in large groups. This of course is not breaking any laws, but I am not sure if what they are doing in Sainsbury's car p...

Latest picture update:-
Work on the rear of the roof cover went on last week, they have also been doing some work on internal walls which may not show well in the picture.

Re: Venner Square??

Well I do think Venner Square has a nicer ring to it than "The noisy end of Venner Rd" :D :D :D

As for Kirkdale Village (Where I reside) I did laugh...... my best mate lives in New Eltham and he always calls it New Eltham Village :)

Unless it's insured 3rd Party, Fire & Theft and the owner is at fault, in which case the insurance company won't care.

Re: Street advertising on high street

I'm currently on maternity leave so have been going to Sydenham High Street on a regular basis during the day. The advertisers who sell on the public square next to Natwest are a bit of a menace (tend to be visa, talk talk, sky etc...) and I wanted to complain to the local council. Does anyone know...

Re: Thinking of buying - need some advice on the area

I moved into Sydenham 10 months ago and regret nothing. The shops/transport links and community are really good. A far improvement from where I lived before with drug dealing in the streets and hooligans everywhere :) If you are looking to use a property agent, I used Property World in Sydenham (tho...

Re: Street signs-advice please?

The only place that immediately comes to mind is the shop next to the Harbour 321 fish bar. They do engraving of trophies etc and sell items that can be engraved. If they don't have what you need, they may be able to recommend someone who can. Just passed Sydenham Station (purple shop front), I thin...

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted an elavated picture, mostly as not a lot of visual work had taken place. This weekend they started on the timber work and decorative features of the triangle things (gables? Biscuitman will need to confirm, I have no idea lol). Brickwork seems to have ...
