Do you know what's replacing them? And why are they leaving?
Shame indeed. Really lovely guy. I often use his shop for wine in Brixton. Always friendly chat.
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
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.
It's all over the place: Oval, Clapham &c.
The South London Press (and Greenwich Mercury) have been sold by the administrators to Romford based leaflet distributor Street Runners Ltd.
Sounds a bit grim. Didn't know they were in so much trouble - but I'm not surprised.
Will Lambeth have to re-tender their planning ads if Street Runner prove to be a dud?
South London Press sold to Street Runners Ltd - Journalism News from HoldtheFrontPage
Apologies - I see there is a dedicated thread - but the news is new!
"Turtle Bay is renowned for its authentic reggae soundtrack, which is a central part of the restaurant experience."
I just sicked up a bit.
It dread inna Babylon! T'ings a gwaan!
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).
Victoria line borked all of Sunday:
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?
I hope so. The Grand Union closed in May I think.
Added more detail here: Goodbye Brixton Grand Union, hello again Hope & Anchor on Acre Lane
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 !
I fucking hate the 'paid VIP queue' bullshit. Good riddance to the place.
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.
I rather like this!
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.
Bloody hell the Dogstar was busy tonight. All those bloody teachers getting pissed
Intrigued by the idea of Quentin Letts adding the vibrancy of anywhere.
