Great respect for Dame Cicely Saunders - and amazing that Google recognise her pioneering work.

Re: Sydenham Assembly Wednesday 13th June 2018

Just as with home insurance - its one thing to pay for insurance - it's another thing to be paid for any claim. For example home contents insurance often comes with the requirement that correct locks and alarms are fitted and used. So easy to say 'I have insurance' but a very different matter to bei...

Re: Sydenham Assembly Wednesday 13th June 2018

Remember this isn't a council school - it is run by a Church - Roman Catholic. Archdiocese of Southwark is the organisation responsible from their website. So the council are only the planners and approvers with some responsibility for safety and compliance. In my mind the Archdiocese should be subj...

Re: Ignition Brewey needs our help!

Sounds as though there needs to be a bit of communication about this - it seems strange that those users of the space haven't been spoken to about any proposals or commitments made to Ignition Brewery. And what a breath of fresh air to hear from those businesses potentially affected by any introduct...

Nor do I, nor anyone I know (equate Sydenham Society with the hangman profession, that is).

Re: Sydenham Society

Re: Robin Orton You raise a good point there about local feeling. Very topical (national) debate at the moment about what respecting the 'will of the people' actually means in a representative parliamentary democracy. If local feeling was always followed by our government (local or national) then th...

Re: Sydenham Society

I was there only for the first 10 minutes or so. Good turnout at that time but I'm afraid I can't give any update on any discussions (if there were any) in Any Questions to the Councillors on this subject.

Looked a packed agenda with lots of news about what's going on in Sydenham.

Re: Sydenham Society

Also suggest attending Sydenham Assembly next week to raise this subject - councillors will be there. Perhaps you could ask beforehand your question so that some preparation can be done to bring to meeting.

Wednesday 14th 7pm at Sydenham Centre

Re: Sainsburys landbanking - perhaps they are awaiting the Bakerloo line extension if ever it gets this far. Then the land that is currently the car park would be more valuable than it is now.

Re: New yoga studio?

Looks like this application for change of use was turned down by the Council yesterday because of insufficient information provided by the applicant. Looks like they didn't submit required impact assessments. Decision notice here: http://planning.lewisham.gov.uk/online-applications/files/37C01347384...

Re: Poodle club

Just tried on the off chance to get into Poodle Club tonight - no preplanning. Well we turned away as sold out - good on them; on one hand disappointed but on other good that its attracting custom on a cold damp February evening. So suggest you make sure you book in advance to guarantee a show. P.S....

Re: New yoga studio?

No need to wait for the studio opening to do yoga in Sydenham / Forest Hill. Lots on at the Sydenham Centre on many days - for certain 19:30 on Wednesday evenings. Also at Forest Hill Pools on Monday night at 20:15. There's lots of other sessions as well. So no validity to use Lewisham Planning as a...

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

For those who don't think Bell Green is an attractive area it is in fact a gateway to our local river path - to get there you have to go through commercial car parks but at least there is a green way at the end. This river path runs up through Ladywell and is a great green artery in Lewisham and its...

Re: Council housing and the Sydenham Society

Forum messages are sometimes taken to mean something different to what the original poster intended (either by accident, or to 'push a point'). This is the nature of one way communication - when you can't hear / see the other parties in the discussion. It's also the same with the process and nature ...

Re: Council housing and the Sydenham Society

It should be noted (in the interests of fairness) that two councillors also spoke out against aspects of the detailed development proposals and one on the planning committee also voted against the details. So not just the Sydenham Society objecting. Quite interesting reading the reports - thanks for...

Re: Litter on the streets of Sydenham

Simple really - make littering as much a social 'no no' as drink/drug driving is now. But it won't happen overnight and will take lots of effort from all - individuals, families, communities, retailers, manufacturers society and the state - we all have to play a part. But as with changing attitudes ...

Re: Poodle club

Spent another evening last night at the Poodle Club - a lot of fun and laughter generated by the 4 comedians plus mc who entertained us - enjoyed the post show drinks and dancing time - a good wind down.

A local real live alternative to watching 'Live at the Apollo'.

Use https://www.fixmystreet.com/ there's n app for this as well - useful on phone Sydenham street cleaners are usually pretty good in my experience. Big contrast if you cross the boundary into Bromley - seems a lot worse there. I'm thinking of the Penge side. So it depends on exactly where you live....
