I can ask?
I was over the other side of the road when that happened. Didn't see the two lads getting stabbity at each other as there was a bus in the way. Was a bunch of schoolkids, still in their uniforms, running about and then a few girls were shrieking a bit.
Police turned up really swiftly, cordoned off the area, more police turned up and an ambulance and were all gone around 10 mins later.
So the truth would appear to be that two young men were fighting, surrounded by a crowd. That was in the very last line of the report and bears no resemblance to the headline!
I was passing through around that time and noticed nothing. There was a similar incident in Peckham last week. Small scale ruck with stabbing and ambulance but big crowd of rubberneckers. Several people separately told me it was almost a weekly occurrence lately. When I asked if they knew the story behind it each of them just shrugged and said "Peckham, innit" it did seem to get people talking to strangers though, blitz spirit I s'pose.
No need. Question answered on website and thread
Sounds almost routine at the moment
I heard from someone who was in Camberwell, that it was school girls no knives and the only injury was hair being pulled out. Was that a different incident?
I don't know, I just assumed it was lads. Spoke to a couple or barlords from The Tiger asking what was going on and they said they did this yesterday too.
I saw blood on the pavement after it had all cleared when I walked up the road, if it was hair pulling then it was a bad one!
Maloko makeover is great
'put love into everything you do'
Hmm Time Out have produced a trying too hard to be funny piece about Camberwell: Nine things you'll know if you live in Camberwell: Nine things you'll know if you live in Camberwell
It's another of their awful content-lite clickbait drivel. They can't even be arsed to take their own photos.
Temple of Bacchus (off licence) to become a Vape Cafe!? E-cigarette specialist apparently...not open yet.
Yeah, I saw that. I always quite liked Bacchus, shame it's gone.
Wonder how the vape cafe will do, no idea how that'll go down in Camberwell.
Johnnies Cafe now serves booze!
A brilliant offy name that I remember years after leaving London. Sad to hear its going.
Is Rock Steady Eddie's still there?
The owner once helped me out when someone once tried to steal my mobile off me.
Yeah, still there
If it's the same guy - possibly Turkish - give him a tip from me next time you buy a brew.
When I had my appendix out at kch in 1997, the first thing I did when I got discharged was go to Rock Steady Eddys for a steak, peas and chips with a massive quantity of gravy.
Camberwell Society AGM is happening in Angels and Gypsies right now. I'm not a member but saw it as I went past. Does anyone here keep up with that lot?
My lurker friend recommends Brunchies.
love brunchies they are so accommodating and friendly in there
last few times I've been around its been closed....might have been sundays though that I was there
Someone on Facebook said that Angels and Gypsies has closed, at least as a restaurant. Is that right?
Yes. See post 1342
It wasn't facebook where I saw it, it was this thread!
There's a new "Arti-Deli" on Coldharbour Lane. I'm not sure it's more than an overconfident fairly standard sandwich bar at the moment, but it's early days.
There's some new street art near GX Gallery. Not sure about it
I had 10 minutes to wait for a bus on the main drag outside Butterfly Walk. This year's tearful "I'm pregnant, give me money" woman was doing great business. I saw two people go to the cashpoint to get money for her When she approached me I mentioned we had had the same conversation last week and a couple of weeks before that (and before that), she was quite grumpy and growled "look at my belly " I don't think it's any different.
Does the 'arti' bit (please God, no) stand for artisinal?
We were some of their first customers when they opened and we still get recognised Lovely people
No it's Art. There are stained paintbrushes in jars on the tables, I'm guessing for 'vibe'. And there was a sign for some kind of creative evening where you pay some money and they do the rest, ie give you a glass of wine and some art materials to fiddle with. Reassuringly, it's OK if all you do is "some colouring". As far as I can tell, it's not an actual art or craft class.
The whole place confused me. The deli bit seems to consist of some meringues, tea bags and craft beer. The menu was mostly cheese or meat sandwiches (I was there around 4.30pm). There was also a hot meal. I didn't see any cake or veggie stuff, though I might have missed it. I was pleased they don't appear to be also selling the furniture.
