    ... 'vibrant' and 'edgy' enough for those "househunting" in adjacent roads?

    The Chinese-run Yu Ye Fish Bar (which served Chinese food as well as the ethnic majority delicacy of fish and chips) at 31 Clifford Road has now closed after 37 years of trading 50m from Norwood Junction station.

    It’s not a cinema as such. They mostly meet in a room in the Conservative Club, which is desperate for custom, what with being in a strong Labour Ward!

    It used to be the film club from Stanley Halls - hence the name - but the woman running it refused to hand over any money to the charity running the halls and decided she wanted to set it up as a business and pay her self a wage out of profits, so she was asked to start paying rent, after two years of being rent free and the charity making a loss out of it, but left instead.

    She tried to take the projector and screen with her, but they belong to the charity so she had to leave them behind. I believe she’s borrowing equipment.

    She registered the name the day after, because her business model is helped by people thinking she’s a charity.

    She is now waging a social media campaign against Stanley Halls, saying that they “sacked” her and “evicted” her. Neither of which is true.

    She only pays herself - everyone else is a volunteer or unpaid intern.

    I’m still a member (I joined before I knew she was pocketing the money) but don’t feel comfortable enough to go anymore. Which is a shame - they showed a documentary last month about the gentrification of Brixton and the film maker was there.
