Thinking about what Ruby has said, I seem to recall (though my knowledge is way out of date) that they are inspected even if not very often as they are supposed to comply with statutory regulations. These days, any inspection reports should be available to the public under the Freedom of Information...

Hello. i can't really help as my son is now taller than I am LOL. However, there is a nursery at the top end of Silverdale (near Syd station) "Gem Kiddies Nursery", but I've no knowledge of it. When I was looking (clearly years ago) I visited a few and they fell into three categories: Thos...

I'm a very big fan of Sydenham DIY, but haven't personally bought any glass from them. If you can't find what you need at Sydenham DIY, perhaps try: Adroit Glass & Glazing, 9 St Georges Parade, Woolstone Road, Perry Hill London SE6 4DT Tel: 020 8812 2831. They're at the northern end of Woolstone...

Thanks for the heads up. Many drivers don't even slow down when approaching that crossing, let alone actually stop - whether they can see for the sun or not. It's good to be sure that traffic has stopped (or is clearly intending to stop) on both sides before setting off to cross. As you say, there a...

There used to be a "Learn Direct" little shop (like a cyber cafe) near Forest Hill a while ago, but gone now.

Their website shows these addresses (having searched on Lewisham Station) so might be a starting point?

Can't say I've noticed anything (near Syd Station). However, there was an item on the news that there was evidence that airlines were operating out of allowed hours and the response was that when flights were delayed, they more or less had still to go or it would otherwise cause many airport/schedul...

In reply to Jules' post, regrettably some people will always drive like idiots on what is, after all, a high street (Sydenham Road) not just a link road. Some even speed up to make sure they don't have to slow down for people. What would help and presumably cost little would be to change the timing ...

Another vote for Sydenham DIY. :) Very helpful and not really any more expensive I find, especially if you allow petrol cost re Penge, Downham or Catford. Incidentally, they do take credit cards. I seem to recall they did stop for a little while, but do take them now. Their opening hours are 8-5 Mon...

Hi and welcome. Have you tried ringing the Kirkdale Bookshop? http://www.sydenham.org.uk/kirkdale_bookshop.html. If they don't know of a club, they might let you leave "calling cards" on the counter. They have a couple of small areas where you can sit and browse their books, so might even ...

Probably not much help, and these are just my thoughts: It might not have film (apparently the Garton Road car park one hadn't when I was mugged about a year ago), and if it has, presumably they could say it hasn't. The lens could be angled away from your property. You could presumably ask for writt...

Hello. The council will collect - at a cost - so might be worth checking out their charges against commercial ones also? The trouble is that commercial firms have to pay tipping fees, which does put up their prices to much more than just their own job rates. HTH Also, it might be worth seeing if you...

Maths tutors near Sydenham pls?

Hi. Does anyone know of any reasonably local maths tutors who could offer tuition for an A-level re-take with the intention of improving on an existing pass grade?

Many thanks in advance :)

Thanks for the heads up. I've known that that sign has been there for a number of years but, not knowing Catford, thought it might refer to a turning up ahead as I've often noticed traffic turning right into Wickes, hence thinking that the sign must refer to another turning. (I normally turn left fu...
