    Blather blather transparent PR promo bollocks for multinational company. As if this 'story' really needed to be told in Brixton.

    A much better story is big told via photography around Cressingham Gardens at the moment, through the stunning portraits around the estate of the residents. Well worth having a look, there's some really great shots.

    No more information that at at the moment.

    That's a real shame. Thought Dave had been doing pretty well. Was only in their last week talking about how he'd finally starting getting his mailing list and updates sorted properly. Hope he'll open somewhere local

    I saw this new scheme for bikes at Oval today. Not sure how it works. I thought it was abandon 20170718_094611.jpg 20170718_094603.jpg 20170718_094543.jpg ed bike.

    Darn and drat!

    Have to admit that I'm one of the guilty folk - too often I found it just too much hassle to fight my way through the late afternoon/early evening weekend dining/tourist crowds in Market Row just to pick up a couple of bottles, and ended up buying less good stuff for same price in Coop.

    "Turtle Bay is renowned for its authentic reggae soundtrack, which is a central part of the restaurant experience."

    I passed the dole office/24 hour shop down there twice on the bus yesterday and there were four laying on the pavement next to the bike hoops (those bits of pipe set in concrete).

    They were all over the streets around the Oval yesterday - bit of a mess...

    Hammersmith & Fulham Council council said a "glut" of 400 of the yellow bikes had appeared on local streets without any consultation with the council and blocking footpaths. “We're very much in favour of cycling,” said Councillor Stephen Cowan, Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council. “But we expect companies to properly consult with us first. This launch could have been much better thought out.”
    oBike's UK launch isn't going well because people are the worst

    Just been past the Grand Union/Hope & Anchor on Acre Lane. Grand Union signs look like someone's tried to remove them and there is what looks like a freshly painted Hope & Anchor above the door. Has it changed back?
  19. editor

    editor Taffus Maximus

    I hope so. The Grand Union closed in May I think.

    Ah yes:

    In the mid-90s the Hope & Anchor was a brilliant boozer. Hope it comes close to that.

    Grand Union was not great, they had the option to pay £10 to jump the queue. No thanks! Nice big garden that could be a sorted out, although compared to the Duke of Edinburgh's attempt at a beer garden its amazing !

    A few streets off, but does anyone know what's happening in Clapham Common North Side? Loads of streets taped off, tons of OB and massive gridlock all around.

    Andrew Neil announced that the comedy skit in "This Week" was filmed at Brixton Beach.
    Mostly it focused on Quentin Letts, Miranda Green and Kevin Maguire so not sure why it needed to be filmed there.
    But it all adds to the vibrancy.
