Re: Why no longer https?

Thanks for replying RJM. Very strange that Firefox shows differently then. I've just logged out and back in to double check. Whilst out, the padlock shows with a red line through. Logging in warns me that site not secure and padlock has gone altogether once logged in. The thot plickens...

Why no longer https?

Per subject title. Can't say it bothers me especially (unless I ought to be bothered?) but if https thought preferable, why not any more?

Re: LBC via Freeview 732 has stopped working

Ah, I see it's moved frequency, per: https://www.a516digital.com/2019/01/freeview-retune-for-lbc-and-classic-fm.html LBC is now 792 , and Classic FM is now 790. Only problem with that is that my retune on Friday (which I did on spec) did find 790 and 792 with no problem, but both still show as "Off ...

LBC via Freeview 732 has stopped working

Has anyone else found they can't get any sound from Freeview LBC Ch.732 even though it appears to be "On air"? Re-tuning finds the channel as normal but I still have no sound even though all other channels work perfectly well. On my DAB radio and one via FM it is still OK, just seems to have no soun...

Hi Tony.o and welcome. I'd assume the deed holder's name or business can be obtained from the Land Registry complete with an address for official correspondence. I suppose you could try the council who know but might not tell you. If you wanted a hall temporarily of similar size, you could ask the c...

Re: Second Sydenham Town Forum Meeting

It's a bit early for agenda items, but I seem to think that Town Kids used to be more active. It was mention of the possible regular coffee event being proposed by the Ignition, which prompted me to see if it had been duplicated in the Town Kids forum. One suggestion before the meeting is to copy th...

Re: Recommendation for fence repair company

I'd suggest asking at Wickes as they'll have all the gubbins so just need a fitter recommendation. There's one on Catford Hill: https://www.wickes.co.uk/kitchen/showroom and another near Anerley Station. (Other DIY sheds are available.) Or more locally, the garden centre behind Forest Hill station o...

Re: Book Share for Sydenham?

Wasn't something like a book box stand mooted for Mayo Park a while back? That would have needed a physical shed or stand though. What are you thinking would house books on the station? I assume it'd need Rail permission and maybe a watchman in case vandals decided to throw books onto the track (H&S...

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

I'm happy to recommend the one at the other end of Newlands Park just before you bump into Penge East Station. (Bus pass holders can jump onto a 75 bus or the other one whose number I forget at the stop near Tesco.) The Harbour, just beyond Syd. Station towards Kirkdale is good for fish although I f...

JGD, just to mention that I said what you quoted, not John H, who referred to seagulls, a very pertinent consideration.

As a leaver, Brexit = infinity, since even if it ever truly happens people will be attributing everything, good or bad, to it for years to come. "Terrible weather today isn't it?" "Yes, I blame Brexit." Or "Thank goodness for Brexit, they're filling in the potholes now." "Are they?" "Yes, for a new ...

Re: Sydenham under a new flight path?

ThorNogson, first welcome. Reading your post, I wonder if the plan is to diversify so reducing traffic on the air motorways "just enough" to satisfy complainants yet keeping one "lane" or more relatively high, which could then be used as an "acceptable" tolerance level for future increased flights o...

I read or heard somewhere very recently a one-liner that wood-burning ovens and fires were to be outlawed (or were proposed to be). I'm not surprised as I read a study last year saying they're one of biggest causes of air/climate pollution (I can't remember how they measured its prominence). Seems w...

Does anyone know what the average turnover per month of house buying and selling is now versus say a year ago?
