We need a dance night at The Cambria please.
Are they doing anything there now? I try and list them on Buzz but their site doesn't have much information.
They used to have lovely mix tapes playing but it's gone wrong.
Last time I went in I had to listen to the Jersey Boys soundtrack.
I don't really know what's going on but they need to do something.
Have a wee reccy. Warning : drink prices seem high to me.
What happened last night? Mate said a big area taped off by police near where that murder was recently when he went past about 11pm. Palace Road area maybe?
Could he have been confused with York Hill? - there was a stabbing there - all taped off.
Aren't you thinking of Hillside Road? Or has there been another stabbing?
There's been another one - last night on York Hill.
Hillside Road happened during half term a few weeks ago.
It's getting a bit much now tbh. Do we know if last night's was fatal?
I don't believe it was fatal. I certainly hope not.
I see that Lazy Rhubarb is being renovated. Any idea what is going on?
From 6 weeks to 9 months is pretty fucking impressive!!!
Bad News. A fatal fire on Palace Road last night
London Fire Brigade - Tulse Hill – fatal fire
I'd wondered why there were so many police/fire etc there last night. Very sad.
If I'm honest, I saw the blue lights and took my 3 year old boy down for a look at the fire engines, thinking it was maybe another flood. I would never have taken him had I thought that had happened
Has anyone else living on Palace Road (at the Norwood Road end) noticed that the lamppost bulbs seem to have been upgraded? Are Lambeth Council trying to increase sales of black out curtains?
Not sure about that location but our streetlights in Brixton went from yellow to white a while back. Gives a better light imo
Lambeth are upgrading all the street lamps across the borough to LEDs (I assume cos cheaper and more energy efficient). The ones on my road in West Norwood were done earlier in the year.
Yeah, I noticed the new Palace Road ones this week. Kinfauns had been done a while ago. If I sit in a certain place on my sofa, it's quite annoying, but I sleep down the back so I'm quite happy about it.
You sleep down the back of your sofa?
Got em down our road. I have lampposts very near to my front windows and from inside they look like flood lights.
I used to, but I put my wife there now. It's bed all the way for me from now on.
This is exactly what I'm experiencing, Lizzy Mac. It feels a bit like this episode of Seinfeld.
I'm now looking forward even more fervently to the leaves appearing on the trees outside my window, so that there is some difference between night and day.
Not noticed this on Probyn. And I sleep at the front of the house. I hope it's just that I haven't noticed....
Ha ha. I'm getting used to them now. Feels moody.
Me and Mrs Cartoon will have a room to rent from 1st May. We're very close to TH station, buses, pubs and shops. We're not 'up all night party people' but we're pretty laid-back. So if anyone knows someone that might be interested, send me a message. Oh yeah, the sordid subject of money: £350 a month.
Help please! My beautiful & much loved cat Tilly has gone missing. Think she slipped out the front door just after midnight Friday into Saturday. She's scared of traffic etc so wouldn't normally wander but isn't hiding in the front or back gardens, nor the neighbours' as far as I can see. Really worried she's been hurt or taken. She has hypokalaemia - without her meds she'll eventually die. So it's vital she's found asap. I'm beside myself. Please look out if you're in SE24 area (Norwood Rd between Brockwell Park & Tulse Hill gyratory). Posters up, pet registry notified, calling ver, shelters, Lambeth tomz.
