Is it really going to be Antic or just rumours?
Antic confirmed it was on Twitter. But there's been no use since then - four months ago. I did notice that the graffiti on he doors has been removed, so someone is doing something with it.
All the new rejen works have started or are just starting

This is fifteen year-old Jermaine Goupall ...
... he was stabbed to death in Thornton Heath on 8 August 2017.
He was out with a group of friends when he was confronted by three men wearing balaclavas and armed with knives and a machete.
Jermaine tried to run away but was stabbed near a Costcutter shop on Green Lane and collapsed in Georgia Road at around 11pm.
He was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before midnight. A post-mortem confirmed he died of a stab wound to the leg.
On 11 August a 16 year-old boy and 18-year-old Saskia Haye-Elliot, of North Downs Crescent, New Addington were arrested. They were both charged with murder the following day. A 17 year-old man was charged with murder on 14 August. 18 year-old Daniel Luke, of Donald Road, Croydon has also been charged with murder.
They are due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on 8 January 2018.
Police continue to appeal for information and witnesses.
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Lynes, leading the investigation from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "I'm really keen to hear from anyone who was out with Jermaine that night. I can understand that you may be worried about coming forward, but I would like to reassure you that experienced detectives will deal with you sensitively. We will help you through the process of talking to us, as it is vital we get information to help us catch the men responsible.
"Also, if anyone saw the attack on Jermaine please get in contact with us and tell us what you saw."
DCI Lynes continued: "Our investigation has also established that there was an incident in the same area where Jermaine was attacked at around 15:00hrs to 16:00hrs on that Tuesday afternoon. This was an altercation involving a number of teenagers armed with sticks and wearing balaclavas, including some on mopeds.
"One line of enquiry we are exploring is if there is a link between this incident and the later altercation that led to Jermaine's death.
"If you were in the area around that time and saw anything, or know who was involved in this fight please call our incident room.
"Jermaine's family are devastated by his loss, my thoughts are with them at this difficult time. Please help us find the people responsible for taking their son from them."
Anyone with information that may assist the investigation should call the Homicide and Major Crime Command incident room on 020 8721 4868 on via 101.

Well that's your birthday present sorted
Hello, almost moribund thread. Time to wake up and head over to Croydon. Well, tomorrow, anyway - 29 June innit. The Royal Standard.
Drinking in Croydon. Innit. (no - I don't know why I have started saying innit. I will stop).
See you all tomorrow. Let's fill the pub.
Thornton Heath Festival
The South Norwood Woodcraft Folk is one of three potential beneficiaries on the Tesco Bags of Help thing - where you put a token in a box - across Croydon. It’s on now until the end of February.
They are supposed to be in all the Tesco branches, including the big one at Thornton Heath (and the Purley superstore) and all the Tesco Express branches. (Although they are not in the branch next to the Portland Arms!).
Please ask for a token, find the boxes, and vote for us.
And if there aren’t any boxes, ask why. And then let me know.
If anyone needs to know anything about the Woodcraft Folk ask me, or go to www.woodcraft.org.uk
Never knew Thornton had its own thread! Trying to distance yourselves from Croydon?
A group of families and friends of young people lost to knife crime have started an awareness campaign in Croydon with blue ribbons tied to fences, trees and sign posts. Look out for them.
Also, if you’re willing to put up a few blue ribbons go to the Stop Knife Crime Facebook page and they’ll give you some.
The South Norwood Woodcraft Folk put some up at South Norwood Lake the other day.
Something else we should also look out for and another aspect of this issue:
Thornton Heath shop sold knives to children (March 2017)
Croydon shopkeeper who sold knives to children avoids jail (March 2019)
