Re: Waste Collection

Sort of - remind me of what's changing? I'm putting out our food waste for the first time tomorrow. Is Tuesday still the day?

Re: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Nando's don't use free-range chickens so they can get to *&^! as far as I'm concerned. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/lidl-nando-chicken-supplier-taunton-somerset-farm-deformed-birds-die-slowly-animal-rights-a7872226.html http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/03/shocking-video-shows-chicken...

Re: Lemon Tree

In my humble opinion it's never a great idea for a restaurant apparently wanting to advertise itself as offering international cuisine with some degree of authenticity to simultaneously offer an English breakfast buffet. Totally puts me off trying out the Indian food there. I don't see this place la...

Re: PFC Penge Food Centre Sydenham Road

Interested to read all this. I too have left the shop scratching my head about how the total bill could have been so much. I'll double check the amounts from now on.

Re: Beggars on the high street

I find it odd that people get the hump about people asking for money yet no thread about the folks on Sydenham Road near the Newlands Park bus stop always trying to stop people in order to sell them bloody broadband! I ain't into that!

Re: Beggars on the high street

They are happy with this way of life? Really?? Yes, they are a problem, but stop for a minute and think about the root cause. You may be presupposing as much as everyone else Granine. There is quite a chance these beggars are Roma and in that case begging is very much part of a cultural tradition r...

Re: Horrible noisy bikes

They've been around for as long as I've lived in Syd which is coming up five years now. When I lived just on the corner of Kent House Road and Sydenham Road they were out all night most nights just doing laps down Kent House Road, up the High Street and eventually coming round again. Really annoying...

Re: sydenham needs an uplifting

Caffe Nero? Starbucks? MCDONALDS?!! I think the high street is pretty cool! I like a few of the cafes and there are some nice food shops. I've lived all over London and this is the first place where I've had a well-stocked bookshop within a short walk of a really nice place for lunch and a health-fo...

Tennis courts in Wells Park?

Hi all

Does anyone know if the tennis courts in Wells Park are a) still there and b) free for me to just turn up and use?

I heard the ones at Mayow Park have closed?!

Re: Budgens

Totally. With the combined resources of the Sainsbury's behind the Greyhound, PFC, Fresh & Fruity and Well-Being, I have no reason to leave Sydenham for food shopping. I always found the Co-Op to be overpriced and gruelling and Budgens was just a joke. I do miss the Co-Op for their own brand cle...
