Can you get rid of rats that quickly?
I smell a rat...
Some interesting /useful stuff about improvements to Denmark Hill station and some blather about reopening Camberwell station, plus notice of a community meeting to discuss the above Rail news: Denmark Hill & Camberwell - Camberwell Blog
Only by poisoning the cat, or the environmental health inspector
A PR person wants to raise ten grand to run events, connect businesses and 'increase footfall'. But I don't know why they want to do it or why they aren't building on existing regeneration efforts. Unveiling Camberwell
It reminds me of this lot Visit Camberwell / Visit Camberwell is an initiative to encourage people to spend time and money in SE5, through helping local authorities to improve visitor infrastructure. who don't seem to have done much to 'encourage people to spend time and money' in the area but at least they're not trying to flog half-baked business support services and whatnot.
Who was it that made the "Camberwell is Cool" badges a few years ago? They were good badges.
I think that's a 'branding campaign' by SE5 forum... The associated cool Camberwell twitter account stopped posting over a year ago.
I've got a full set of the Arts Festival mugs (original four plus two additional designs) in daily use. Camberwell has had some good merch in recent years
Because then he won't be able to pocket 9 grand of it !
I think it's a woman.
A new cafe/bar is opening in the old Southwark Town Hall building on Saturday and is offering 50% off this weekend. That part of Camberwell has got quite a few cafe options now with Brewbird, No.67, Nandine and Cafe Culture all located nearby.
Some more info on Spike + Earl here:
At least there are some genuine efforts to be 'worthy' as well as trendy. They are actually registered as a Community Interest Company (CIC) - I checked.
I for one welcome places that do not allow laptop wielding wifi hoggers cheap loitering space. We have public libraries for that. Camberwell seems to be increasingly home to places that remind me of Ian Beale's early (EastEnders) enterprise... "in the day it's a caff and at night it's a bistro!"
Wonder what happened to The Butterfly... (see below) Perhaps someone made a stronger case for training homeless people than for another art space.
Oh I think I live on this thread now though on Red Post Hill so it might be the HH thread. Advise me please!
I don't think we have ever posted here but thanks to mango5.
So here it is. Camberwell Free Film Festival is five years old!
It starts Sunday and runs until Monday 10th April all over SE5.
Come one, come all. Please like us on FB or follow us on Twitter if that's your thing. Also if you're part of any groups or relevant forums etc please share.
Feel free to ask questions etc. I have flyers on me and will bring a few to the Dulwich Hamlet game tomorrow.
Also I'm on Soho Radio this Wednesday from 11am to 12pm. The show is called 'Free Seed On Soho' and worth a listen. It goes out live on the web and then on Mixcloud.
Good to see you breaking out of the Hamlet ghetto
I've been recruiting in the pink and blue ball games section
Welcome Fingers AndyF to the Camberwell thread. Keep HH stuff for HH thread if you want a proper local audience
If I get the other side of the bar during a game I'm doing well...
All friends here fella. I've lived in SE5, SE15 and SE23 (now) in the last ten years. One big (South London) happy family
Tell that to the Penge-ites! And we all need to defend our borders from the Brixton expansionists. Welcome to the rest of Urban
Some artwork gone up down Camberwell New Road:
Nice wee bit of sexist "artwork" - let's post it on the internet.
Update. Meat fetishists are doing a pop up coffee bar on weekend mornings. I've not been in there at all so can't speak to the anticipated level of foodwankery.
The place never formerly known as... has closed. The 30 grand kickstarter-funded kitchen is likely to be used by a series of pop-up food thingies according to the sign outside.
The 'felafel and shwarma' offshoot in the doomed location on Datchelor Place is revamping as a Lebanese patisserie - for reasons of expansion rather than doom - but I doubt it will be made on the premises. They have installed a pizza oven though so let's see.
The flying fish will remain a chippy. Hooray!
Which place is that?
Did anybody have a look at the new/relaunched market on Sunday? Saw a few posters around for it but forgot to go and have a look.
It was a nail bar named "Queen's" and the restaurant kept the name after holding a competition to rename the premises. I don't know why.
I didn't go to the Sunday market.. I was put off when I saw that it was hosting the launch of a specialist hash brown purveyor.
While I'm here, I saw this advertised. It's a nice idea
I mean that sounds ridiculous, but I do love hash browns so...
What do people think of the campaign to reopen Camberwell station? I think it will only increased congestion on already (over)crowded trains. I'm not a supporter.
While I have this thread in mind... More stuff
