Discussion in 'Brixton' started by choochi, Jun 9, 2014.
It opened again an hour later, so can't have been too serious.
Bastards. And it was supposed to be the inflatables race today, neighbour said it was delayed.
It's happened again overnight. No pre-work swim here this morning. Incredible - someone with a grudge?
What? Oh my. Sounds bizarre.
Really nasty and yeah - a bit weird.
These idiots chucking stuff in the pool? How are they gaining entry?
They must be climbing over the outside wall I guess - the indoor buildings are, presumably, alarmed.
Do we know that if it's opening today at all?
I called and they said they would be open but not sure what time.
Closed all day .
I'm other news Lambeth are busy setting up for fun & frollicks this weekend:
Really? They literally just told me 2-3 hrs! (and to keep an eye on Twitter).
Might have changed. They were being really vague...
Cos they're selfish cunts....
Saltdean Lido was also vandalised on Sunday night
My doormat has received a Lambeth council sticker saying it's a fire hazard and will "be removed in 24 hours".
The cat is now happier he has more indoor scratching options.
Well it would be a warm welcome.
Glad to see Lambeth are making good use of and prioritizing their precious resources.....
Especially as they haven't cared for the last few years until what's now a post grenfell panic; and then their contractors broke loads of the windows and blamed the residents, and then the contractors broke the security doors by blocking them open and then blamed the residents etc. etc. etc.
Got an impressively detailed thing through the door about the Sunfall festival in Brockwell park 12th August.
It was A4, both sides, small print - lots of info. We've definitely not had anything like this before about any park event.
sound check - friday 11 17:00-18:00hrs and sat 12th 10:00-11:00hrs

They are also offering some free and some 50% discount tickets to local residents near the park. Not my thang - but thought some of you might be interested.
I got that too - their knowledge of SE24 / SW2 is pretty lacking - lots of eligible streets aren't named on their list of local streets in the catchment.
Particularly liked their claim that they'd "secured tickets for local residents", given that they've secured them from themselves. You then have to take photo id, and an original utility bill to gain entry...
Copywriting was dreadful and missed their audience.
I thought it was written to reassure locals about how responsible they want to be, well those who could be bothered reading their dense small print. Don't think locals are their festival 'audience'. Not all locals like our park being pimped out to private profit making nightclub/festival organisers.
As I don't have photo ID I'm annoyed that I wouldn't be able to get in, not that I want to go anyway, but it's the principle. It's middleagist! Just wait 'til I have me buspass, then I'll show'em.
One side of the letter (HT Jim Dickson):
Seems like all local ticket allocations have already gone (I don't emoji, but my response is a bit beard scratchy).
Half Moon Pub nominated for Southwark Blue Plaque – but your vote is needed
Come down for my Chapati Slingers north Indian curry pop up at The Parlour, opposite the park (msin entrance) next Thursday (24th) from 7.30pm. I usually do veggie only but am expanding to prawn and chicken too this month, as well as veggie (or vegan if requested). I need menu choices so PM me if you're interested and I'll send you the menu.
It's a lovely chilled night...booze served there too...nice atmosphere and loads of delicious food. Please spread the word! Thanks.
14 dreamy reasons to visit Dulwich Road, Herne Hill
I wouldn't call The Florence an old pub. There might have been a public house on the site for a long time, but old The Florence is not and feels not. Could have mentioned the Hakf Moon as well- perhaps the article was written before it reopened.
That drumming in the park...is it bothering anyone else who can hear it?
Maybe it's this lot again. I didn't think it was that loud. mind.
Late afternoon in Brockwell Park – African drumming, dancers and picnickers
