Re: Poodle club

From memory hop king ale. Some others as well. Not draught. And a single white, red and prosecco with regards to wine.

Simple choice. Red is Rioja and was good.

Poodle club

What a great opening night. No photos because lets keep it private. Good fun. Lots of laughs. Great bar and atmosphere. I enjoyed myself and laughed a lot.

Great addition to Sydenham scene. West end heading South.

Long may the club thrive. Beer Rebellion has left us - good on you Poodle Club.Ok

Re: sticky: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Thanks Pat for clarifying the involvement (not really "active") of the Sydenham Society in the ongoing Nandos application. Good to clarify.

Re: What *are* they doing to Dartmouth Road?

But they do seem to be going on for a long time. That to me is the frustration of all this. Not sure when they started but I'm sure it was before the Summer holiday season - that's part of the issue with works. If they are done quickly they are quickly forgotten about and people live with the new de...

Re: Aldi

Aldi will be focussed on getting their plans for demolishing the Bell Green gas holders in Lower Sydenham next to Savacentre and building a store there approved. Doubt they would want another store so close in Sydenham.

The cycling strategy document is v0.92 - has it actually been released and approved? Or is it still in draft awaiting sign-off?

Re: Deliveroo

The rise of the internet, changing consumer behaviours and evolving modern retailer requirements are all calling into question traditional models of how centres work. To survive and to flourish town centre stakeholders need to think creatively about how they respond to these changes. Its great that...

Re: Deliveroo

I don't mind traditional home delivery services - but am conscious that the newer types (Deliveroo, UberEats etc.) are explicitly structured in a way that does not allow their workers to receive standard benefits such as sick pay, holiday pay and other basic benefits. They class their delivery teams...

Re: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Part of the issue for planning committees is that sometimes applications say one thing but immediately they are granted and the business is up and running then the reality of what is actually delivered does not match what was proposed. WHat do you do then? This also applies to housing developments. ...

Re: Cycling Weekend Road Closures

Please correct me if necessary on geography - but what about Sydenham - Crown Hill - Streatham - Mitcham - Colliers Wood - South Wimbledon - Wimbledon Chase - onto A3 just South West of Raynes Park. No need to go across South Circular - this is our normal route. Then get to Basingstoke either by M25...

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

I doubt anything will be done about the car park until the Bakerloo line extension plans are finalised. Isn't the lower sydenham station going to be relocated to more central Bell Green?

Re: Windmill Victory

I'm not convinced that having a B&B or hotel on the site would solve the problems, although the Alexandra has a hostel above it. Having grown up in a hotel and a seaside town and family who have run B&B's, it's not the most profitable of ventures. It may make it easier for a bar to exist, b...

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

Wonder what odds I would have gotten in one of our numerous local bookies that the pub still would not be open in July 2017. Should have enquiried a few years ago. Now you wouldn't get an "odds on" bet that anything of significance would open in Sadenham I tried to place a bet on this at ...

Re: Windmill Victory

The Sydenham Society's approach to this property just completely baffles me. They seem to be objecting to any use of the property other than as a large pub, something which it seems quite obvious isn't going to happen. We've now waited 3.5 years for a pub operator to open a large pub on The Windmil...

Re: Parliamentary Election Hustings

Glad you are trying to re-arrange. Taking all the circumstances into account it will be better if the hustings take place - albeit delayed - than not take place at all.

Hustings are an important part of our system of democracy - long may they continue.

Re: Tennis courts in Wells Park?

Wells Park tennis courts open and no charge to play - just turn-up and wait your turn if occupied. However some time in the future (this year) they will move to LTA management just like Mayow ones and others in Lewisham. Then there will be payment system etc.
