    I like the Tesco - especially at 10 at night - it's a bit random and quite busy. Not as good as drunk shopping Streatham Tesco's at midnight.

    This Sat Dec 5 - second installment of the South Norwood Clocktower Market...outside Aldi in Station Street.

    First was a couple of weeks ago and was a great success. See link...

    South Norwood Clocktower market hailed as success as stalls sell out

    Will have a mix of food, crafts, live music and a story teller for the kids.

    Come one come all!

    So what to peeps think of the public realm plans?

    Overall very happy with the plans. At first I thought waiting until March 2017 to start work in Portland and Station Roads was an unnecessary delay but upon further consideration understand why given the need to put the work to tender, select a provider and ensure all impacted have a chance to have their say before work commences.

    Looks alright. Not sure it will bring the shops back to life though.

    Dunno if that will work. It is a link to a facebook page advertising a soul night at Stanley Halls.

    While the ethnic majority concerns itself with a lack of pubs, bagel shops and "cupcake cafes", and calls for more support for "small businesses" while simultaneously launching a racial boycott of existing "small businesses", the road where "no-one" goes could do with improved safety measures to protect local residents, including, presumably, the many people who already live there and are not "househunting" in adjacent roads in order to make the area where they live more "vibrant":

    Are you accusing me of racism?

    I genuinely have no idea what point you are making by doing a multi-quote of my posts.

    SE25 1 sec lemme chat about road

    anyone been to that pop up coffee place in Stanley Halls? Never noticed it before though if it's good then I'd probably go there often for a flat white in the morning. At the risk of sounding a bit thick, where exactly is it?
