Camberwell news and chitter-chatter

Yeah I've seen some blather about how it's very representative of Camberwell's colour and character and I bet they say that in every neighbourhood. It's nice but not as good as the things that appear as part of the Arts Festival. My faves were on the post office (demolished) and the pink parking meter.
Yeah, I liked the Post Office artwork. I wonder how many areas of London now have these artworks.

Yeah I read about him. The signs are already so bland it wouldn't surprise me if they leak out of South London and infect other neighbourhoods with their cheapo instant faux retro coolness. :(

They are ringing the bells now but soon...
Fucking hate these things, there's one in Brockley too. There's enough street art in the area, we don't need a copy/paste from other south London areas.

Middle-aged middle-class types seem to love them, the bloke who does them must not be able to believe his luck.
I like stuff on the street, but this corporate/ sponsored by local business stuff makes me dry heave. I like the temporal spontaneity of some work, even tags up to a point- it shows life and kicking back.The M/C embraced stuff at the likes of ED station smells of death and profit

The hairdressers on CHL (Crown and Glory I think) has moved and the planning app sign says it will be a restaurant. Next to the newish bakery and pizza place.

Looks like internal clearance is happening in the former club couture building on Camberwell Church Street. There's also a nice new butterfly painted under the railway bridge opposite the generic neighborhood branding.

In other news, the picnic tables on Camberwell Green have been removed due to late night disturbance for residents in Peabody estate.

There's a Farcebook group full of pictures like that: Historic Southwark: Camberwell, Southwark and Bermondsey

Saw this flyer posted up at the E&C and of Walworth Road, and thought 'This seems like a job for Urban'. This thread seemed to be the closest to that area.

Whats the craic with that pub 'The Tankard'? I have never been in but was intrigued in the past as they used to have offers of cheap pints on display on the walls. But, i have also heard its a bit of a Milwall pub which puts me off a little (but not much).
