Just trying to think of a practical way forward...!

The village part was set up by the local estate agent, much to many peoples scorn.
Kirkdale is the original high street of Sydenham.
The 'high street' buildings are in Kirkdale (which the painted signs type and logo are based on the cast signage of these buildings).

Does anyone know if there are any plans to renovate the pavement in this area? The Dartmouth Road paving looks good, and once you get down to Sydenham station etc it also looks nice, but the Kirkdale area by Costcutter etc looks pretty scruffy now in comparison.
