Water pressure in lower Sydenham

Anyone else got very high water pressure? Taps are gushing and it's made my shower lukewarm as the hot isn't enough to compete with the high pressure cold. Haven't done anything to make this happen that I'm aware of and the neighbours haven't noticed a difference. Thames are coming to have a look on...

Re: Sydenham Christmas Tree

I prefer the minimalist white lights to a load of baubles personally - the Kirkdale one was a complete dog's breakfast.

Re: Assembly Fund bid to restore painted shop fronts?

Nick Garret is a very good signwriter (I didn't know he was now based in Sydenham). He painted the logo we designed for Trattoria on their wall. If you were going to do something like that locally, I'd get Nick to train some locals up (he's a very good teacher, he runs classes at the Lovely Gallery...

Re: Thames Water - destroying our new pavements

I have a suspicion though that the new temporary repair was the work of the Council - they have been spreading asphalt liberally over all the potholes in the pavements around Sydenham, so they might have hit this one as they were passing.

Re: Thames Water - destroying our new pavements

The Fresh and Fruity one is I think the Cherry and Ice one referred to above? Couldn't see anything outside Fresh and Fruity anyway. Re: bad repairs, the Thames effort outside the Hardware store isn't great either, at least not compared to the original paving. Riney did a pretty good job first time ...

Re: Thames Water - destroying our new pavements

Have reported the LIDL issue - someone has put some barriers round it, so hopefully UK Power are already on the case.

Re: Thames Water - destroying our new pavements

There's another shocker outside LIDL where UK Power recently ran a cable across the road - they've left the pavement in bits. Not quite as bad as Thames's ludicrous effort outside Cherry and Ice but still a joke - is it really that difficult to put a few paving stones back where they were before you...
