Discussion in 'Brixton' started by Rushy, May 1, 2014.
I remember some time ago someone recommended a southern indian or Sri Lankan take away that delivers to Brixton? I've searched but can't find it does anyone remember? If notdoes anyone know a good Turkish/ lebanese? I have a craving for one or the other!!!
Saz in Herne Hill is delicious. And they deliver.
Kennington tandoori was the one.
The menu for sax looks good : )
Sorry no it's not that one I did follow up the recommendation but wasn't that impressed. It's not sarf sarf Indian - you should know that sarfy !!
The Sri Lankan one has closed. Sams is South Indian. Barbeque is a decent Turkish/Lebanese (it is slightly confused which it is)
This has nearly finished on Brixton Square
So we tried Saz but their menu was going mental and we couldn't read it, phoned them up and the bloke on the phone was aware but couldn't do anything about it. We ordered from BBQ - cheers Manter it was good; great salad which came free and the veggie sides and starters were lovely. The meat was a bit sparce but as a veggie that bothered the other half more than me. All in all good value and quality.
So is Pete Robbins ex Cabinet Member for Housing and Regen. He did not stand.
The new Cabinet has different post in it:
• Leader of the Council, Cllr Lib Peck
• Deputy Leader (Policy Delivery), Cllr Imogen Walker
• Deputy Leader (Finance & Investment), Cllr Paul McGlone
• Cabinet Member for Children & Adult Services, Cllr Jackie Meldrum
• Cabinet Member for Environment & Sustainability, Cllr Jenny Brathwaite
• Cabinet Member for Families, Cllr Rachel Heywood
• Cabinet Member for Health & Wellbeing, Cllr Jim Dickson
• Cabinet Member for Housing, Cllr Matthew Bennett
• Cabinet Member for Jobs & Growth, Cllr Jack Hopkins
• Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, Cllr Jane Edbrooke
Anyone know anything about Cllr Bennett? New Cabinet member for housing. Works for Steve Reed.
Can't really help with Matthew Bennett - except his Twitter a/c says day job in Westminster - which sounds a bit ominous to me (another special adviser?).
As regards Pete Robbins he was rushing around like a blue assed fly at the local election count. I would have expected him not to bother if he had "moved on".
Looks good - but where is the Hot Yoga sauna exercise thingy?
If only I didn't have to start work at 8am the next day, I'd be there like a shot.
I guess "old school Brixton" means "people without proper jobs".
"The problem is not confined to edgy parts of London."
"startling lack of apostrophes"
It's one thing to vandalise estate agents' boards, but the English language? Shame on you, Lambeth Housing Activists.
Good to see the water feature in Windrush Square working, will ride through it again when the weather warms. It would be good to have a pigeon cull, over two hundred of them shitting everywhere on the square.
A vandalised estate agent board in an edgy part of London recently.
I'm taking a Brixton Mural tour on 8th June - meet at 11am outside Stockwell Tube Station. No heckling!
Make sure you're wearing decent comfortable shoes - when I did a mural walk we walked for miles and it took about 4 hours!
I was the tour guide - (when did you go - one time it took far too long)
Really sad to see this tree taken down. There are a number of possibilities but i suspect the idiot who came to mow the grass must have hit it hard.
Seems funny how the smoke only became a problem after 8 years, but there's more info (and a petition) here:
Jeff the Chef in Brixton Station Road faces uncertain future after BBQ ban
They want to get rid of the smoke, they want to get rid of the people. The sanitation teams are here, they are serving soylent green.
Says the man who wants to kill all the pigeons!
They've been here longer than you have!
That Brixton Buzz article seems to be a nearly word-for-word rewrite of an article in Brixton Blog from December 2013.
Actually it comes from the page that's stuck up on the side of their van and from their petition page which you clearly didn't bother looking at. Neither are attributed to the Brixton Blog, which I haven't looked at. If it turns out they wrote it - and not just used the same press release - then I will credit them.
Still, great to see you being so supportive as ever, spending your time trying to undermine a campaign to support a local trader.
I read it, had a deja vu moment, googled, and found that I had indeed already read this news story half a year ago.
The BBuzz article gives the impression that the petition has just been started.
