    Gutted to find out via Twitter that the lovely Mr Lawrence wine bar in Crofton Park closes on 5 May.

    I have been going there longer than living nearby and it is a real proper old-school wine bar that pre-dates the ongoing gentrification of Crofton Park, and a bit of a local institution. Not sure why it's closing - suspect the owners are retiring. We will be going in there before it closes to say farewell and thanks for all the (good, reasonably priced) wine.

    I'm not sure how many real swappies are involved... It's a local group thing above all is my impression

    Write up and pics

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but this doesn't seem like 1977 to me where the NF were out to cause violence and against the community. I don't know much about this and expect to be put in my place but preventing free speech doesn't sit well with my, unless it is inciting violence.

    You let them get a toe-hold and after that they'll be inciting violence.

    I do wonder what the point of a hustings is though. A tiny number of attendees will be genuinely undecided. And all candidates can and should put a statement online, and a speech on YouTube, for anyone who couldn't get to the event.

    this weekend is 50 years since the lewisham floods (which extended as far south as bellingham)

    local blog 'running past' has a detailed post on it here


    perspective - this was taken outside the entrance to the Odeon - this is about the closest i can get to the same angle on street view - the church is still there, the site that's now the old billodrome was then chiesmans department store. i guess their bargain basement was somewhat soggy...

    mum-tat's photos (i was not around just quite yet at the time) here
