    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.

    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

    This is 15-year old local resident Jay Hughes (also known as Jai Sewell) who was stabbed to death outside Morley's on Randlesdown Road, Bellingham, at 5.20 p.m.on Thursday 1 November 2018 ...

    [​IMG]

    ... following the murder, an order was granted enabling the use of temporary powers under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, which applies where a senior officer (Assistant Chief Constable or above) believes people may be carrying weapons or causing serious violence in a particular area. Where a S60 has been granted, police officers have the power to stop and search people for offensive weapons or dangerous instruments, without the having reasonable grounds. They may require the removal of certain items of clothing.

    No arrests have yet been made in relation to the murder of this child.

    the bridge from the lewisham shopping centre (think it was still called the riverdale centre then) to chiesmans department store while it was under construction (there was a clear plastic tube installed inside the frame before it was opened.)

    or was it trading as army and navy or house of fraser by then?

    somewhere early 80s-ish.

    perspective - the police station more or less covers the ground that chiesmans did. boots is still where it is in the photo, and the clock tower got moved when the bit of the high street where the market happens got pedestrianised.

    on tweeter today, 1933 film of the opening of Tower House - then the Royal Arsenal Co-operative Society's Lewisham department store.

    :)

    Tower House is still there (unlike Chiesmans next door which was where the police station is now) - think some of it was going to get converted in to luxury bloody flats a year or two back, but not sure if this happened.

    Can't remember exactly when it packed up, must have been early 80s - basement was food supermarket kind of thing, upper floors were department stores. Like Chiesmans, it suffered from being on the wrong side of the High Street which got worse when the Riverdale Centre opened in the mid 70s.
