Yes Station Rise is being done too
Are you a local resident with a talent or skill, a crafter, a community group, a catering company, do you just want to declutter, do you run a local business or service in Tulse Hill. Tulse Hill Forum are running a street festival and are looking for a variety vendors at our event. If you would like a stall at our local street event which are all free (£20 refundable deposit) please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
Thurlow Park Road heading east has been bumper to bumper for the last couple of days, on the other hand. I suspect it's the direct consequence of the road closure, unless there is a roadwork further ahead I'm not aware of.
I look forward to seeing the detailed plans to removing the one-way system in TH. Given the amount of traffic the area endures, those in charge of the project sure have their work cut out.
Lovely vibes at the Railway with Jerry Dammers playing a benefit for Jo Cox
Bobs have opened on Norwood Road. They do draught wine. You bring an empty bottle and they fill it up. Also craft beers. The general hipster gentrifico booze shop.
Hipster prices too?
It starts at about £8 a bottle, which is expensive compared to the co-op across the road, but the guys are knowledgeable, which I guess is worth paying for.
I'd say it's priced like a decent independent business, and I don't mind that.
Not so quiet on the alternative routes now - they've become a bit of a rat run - with the inevitable result. This on Lanercost road this evening, I suspect I'm going to be shopping for a new car tomorrow
PS - if anyone happens to know the 2 characters in this photo, please remind them that they now have 19 hours to report the incident to the police since they didn't want to give me their insurance details before driving off. I'm not holding my breath
They're only open until 8.30pm. Obviously didn't get a later licence.
I was asking him if he's going to put in a few tables like Art and Craft. He said he maybe will when he opens next door. A very nice guy.
Somewhere for the White Hart regulars to go when it closes
I'm DJing the The Railway Tavern tonight - come along. It's *FREE!*
Tonight! Brixton Buzz brings the party to the Railway, Tulse Hill – and it’s free all night! Fri 23rd June, 2017
Popped in to say hello and yes he is very nice. He has wine on tap...
Last 4 tracks were belters. Big up
Yourself mr Ed.
Yup very busy and noisy around probin/lanercost. Plenty of shouting and horn honking. Sorry about your car Nick.
I've been into the Electric Cafe today. Apparently his trade has taken a massive hit due to the road closures. Anyone buying anything at this time should make an effort to shop local to get the local independent businesses through this shitty period.
I went in yesterday as I was craving a crusty roll and tomato soup. He had neither items...
If you had wanted bacon, egg and sausage you would have been on to a winner.
I needed some meths and was going to B&Q but went to Strowgers instead.
Ah, the strong stuff.
I really didn't fancy a cooked breakfast. I always have the veggie one anyhoo
I would have been annoyed if I had been hankering after something so simple and he hadn't been able to do it for me.
That railway was pretty quiet when I got there was it busier earlier on?
Just putting this out there in case anybody can help. As some of you know, me and Mrs Cartoon are getting evicted from our flat on Station Rise, the place I've called home for 19 years. We've done nothing wrong, but the landlord wants to do a lot of structural repairs (and it needs a lot!), redecorate and then either rent it out for 3x as much or flog it for half a million or whatever. So, we're fucked. We'd very much like to stay in the area but so far we've had no luck - places we've seen have been either too expensive, too small, or both. We don't earn a lot, so if anyone knows of any genuinely affordable rooms going, either as a flatshare or on their own, please let me know. One thing, we do need space or storage for belongings - unlike most people I know these days, we don't simply own a bag of clothes and a laptop(!) Thanks folks, in advance.
Will keep my nose to the ground x
White hart was ram jammed yesterday but was awful music so we bypassed. Think it was a birthday party or something.
It's not in Tulse Hill but isvicthere? has posted about renting out his flat in Brixton...
Thanks for the tip. Looks like its only available for a year, though, and I can't be going through this stress again in 12 months' time. I know he says 'maybe longer' but we've had a similar situation here for 18 months and it's mental torture waiting to see how long you've got.
It was an 80th...
You might really struggle to find a long term rent in the current market....
...it's shit to be up heaved after such a long time. Hope you do find something. If I hear of anything I'll give you a shout...
