No intention to disrespect your nursery, but are these things ever true where the only source is a well-meaning nursery?
I've heard loads of these stories, both here and in Belfast. The only time I was aware of one being true locally, there were a load of cops in Tulse Hill of a morning, stopping people to ask had they seen it happen the same time the previous day, and handing out flyers.
I've also heard news appeals on BBC London about attempted abductions. Maybe even national news too.
So on the rare times it does happen, a load of resources are thrown at it rather than leaving it to a nursery.
The rest of the time, I think that there are urban myths caused by people with nothing better to do, leading to mass hysteria and people afraid to say hello to a child for fear of being locked up or burnt out.
It is a good idea to keep a close eye on kids though.
Best Kebab is gone?
From its new premises (it moved a few months ago to Dulwich Road)?
Oh, right, thank you.
I meant have they gone from the Railton Rd bit.
I am glad they are still around
So looks like work on the old strip where the veg, fishmongers, butchers etc has commenced. Do we know what's going in there?
National newspaper report, 9 January 2017:
"Property prices in south and east London have boomed since the last downturn, growing faster than anywhere else in the capital.
Herne Hill, a neighbourhood in south London near Brixton, which is known for its large park and lido, has had the highest growth in the country since the peak ..."

Herne Hill, 25 May 2015:
... we get the message.
So no one has any info?
I know the butcher is gone for good and the veg shop is staying where it is now. I think the bakery might be going back to it's old spot. I doubt they even know yet as the work will take the best part of a year iirc.
why did you report it ?
Cos GarveyLives has posted this photo several times with no relevant connection to anything happening ATM. I don't like seeing that word being posted over and over. He's been reported before for doing this.
thanks for replying, I wasn't aware the photo had been posted before by Garvey Lives
I want to plug The Parlour on Norwood Road, it's quite hidden away as the signage is subtle and it's a small place.
I went in last week to ask if they would be able to make sugar free cake as I was organising a meet up for younger women with breast cancer. The lady that runs the place wasn't there but her employee called her and I spoke to her on the phone. She was more than happy to provide us with some goodies.
Went in today and met the owner. What a fantastic woman. She baked 4 different types of sugar free cakes and didn't say a thing when I mentioned that none of the BC ladies could make it. I sat and had a coffee with her and we talked about her business. She's relatively new to running it but is a local lady. She works with lots of other local businesses and really gives a shit about the area.
She is open in the evenings and will be hosting supper club type events where local people and businesses can come and use her space and sell their wares. I found her to be genuine, caring and very down to earth with a real desire to give back to her local community; I.e. She wasn't just profit driven.
Coupled with all of that, her food is really nice and you can go health freaky or not and the space is relaxing.
She said she's struggling with how to market the place so I said I'd post something on here. Please pay them a visit. She has a booze license too and sells Canopy Beer.
Do you think you can do an article editor? I'm pretty sure the owner would be happy to see one.
If you can take some snaps and expand what you've posted into more of a review, I'd be happy to run it on Buzz.
Ok. I'll do that.
Seconded. She's lovely. I don't tend to go there but have met her a few times whilst out walking the dog. Although I'm not sure hers is really a dog. More of a wolf.
Make sure to mention that her gaff is dog and wolf friendly...
Great location that, I'll pop in hopefully at the weekend. Thanks for the heads up.
Her wolf is beautiful but nippy.
Please stop re posting that offensive picture!
Review up! The Parlour on Norwood Road – a great new coffee shop for Herne Hill, south London
I'm a published critic!

Unit 1 Premises at the front of the station 37m2
Unit 2 Site to install a kiosk in the booking hall 10m2
Unit 3 Premises situated in an arch in the booking hall 77m2
Unit 4 Premises on Platforms 1 & 2 37m2
Not sure about those new tiles on The Commercial. Hope white is just an undercoat too.
Has it reopened already?
No. But they were tiling the fascia? above the windows yesterday.
And the white is on the outside.
It does get a bit of footfall but that's a bit optimistic...
The existing units surely? Newsagent & 3 coffee / food kiosks, with some expansion of one as they knock through the arch?
Yes.That's how I understand it. They're being refurbished.
