    That's what I have been trying to find out - the link between the cafe and the charity.

    Even if the cafe is not preachy or whatever, if it turns out to be part of an evangelical churchy charity which only helps women if they swear their love and allegiance to Christ and their money to the charity or something or other like that, I will think twice about giving them my money.

    What's happened to all the cashpoints in Crystal palace. I'm sure there used to be a Barclays and a Lloyds one on Westow Hill. The only one I could find last night was one where you have to pay £2 to withdraw cash. Are there any free ones left?

    Should be one by the big sainsburys.

    There is. (At least there was last time I went to the Palace on foot about a month ago).

    I'm also sure there was a Lloyds one - Westow Hill near what used to be the Cambridge?

    That Lloyds branch has now closed! :(

    Yeah Sainsbury's is still there and I think the one in the co-op a bit further down central Hill is also free.

    But I have a feeling its just a few doors down from the one you found that wanted £2

    I popped in briefly with the nipper on the way back from nursery. Tried a sample of Gipsy Hill's Beatnik and Southpaw. Both nice, but the Beatnik especially so. Then the nipper finished his sandwich and started running amok so left without the opportunity of buying anything, which must've made me look like a freeloading miser and/or desperate alcoholic.

    To all my UK friends, please share this post, particularly if you know someone in the SE19/Crystal Palace area...

    My father, John Merritt, who is 77 and has advanced Alzheimers, left his house in Braybrooke Gardens at 10.30am and hasn't been seen since. He has no coat on and will probably be very cold.

    Please keep an eye out for him - see attached photo. Call the missing persons number - 0208 649 0145 - if anyone has seen him. If you see him, please stay with him until you have contacted the police.

    Thank you.

    There was a tweet on my Twitter feed about him which I've retweeted and I've also shared the link on my Facebook.

    I hope he gets found soon!

    It's quite depressing how 1986 seems sooo long ago now when you see these kind of videos!

    He's been found safe and well. :)

    Today is the 80th anniversary of the Crystal Palace burning down.

    It was a huge fire that could be seen from 8 counties. I chatted to an 89 year old woman today who remembers seeing the fire.

    It's amazing all the constructions that were put in place for the Palace like the Italian terraces, which like most of the remnants have fallen into disrepair. Then there are the tunnels which were for the well heeled visitors which just about survive, I can't help feel that Crystal Palace Park is of such importance and beauty is so sadly neglected.
