    :eek::eek::eek: I had no idea, didn't know this was a thing in TH. Not seeing many reasons to continue my move, lately :(

    You could consider it a bonus (except for the poor sex workers) as it slows the steady creep of gentrification*.

    It's a great place with good transport links. It isn't bland like so many places now and has many positives.

    *Says the professional who did his bit for gentrification by buying into the area in 1991 and who has done his fair share of eating in swanky places, going to "edgy" nights in the Fridge back in the day etc etc

    They've moved from lyham road then.

    Mollymols it's fine. I've lived in the area since 2003. It's not Chelsea or Chiswick but better than Bromley where I was robbed 6 or 7 times.

    Mollymols it really is fine. Generally they they aren’t bothering anyone. Feel sorry for them more than anything. The real problem is violent fucking scum pimps who prey on a lot of them.

    Wish they’d just legalise prostitution and drugs and that would help a lot Olof women getting into the spiral of drug dependency/pimp exploitation/criminal records

    I think after a while people start making complaints of, I don't remember, harassment in the community, or something like that and the police move them on from that area then they congregate half a mile or a mile in one direction or another.

    One of my neighbours has been making a lot of complaints and said that one of the local councillors asked her what she expected when she lived in a red light area

    Excellent. She should have realised when it popped up in all the tourist guides. Of course!

    The drug/prostitute house in Lanercost road is now a fine family home.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the responses. Certainly feels like a community vibe

    About three years ago, when the flat underneath me on Probyn was a rental, some people moved in and it was effectively a brothel. I eventually had to tell the owner who kicked them out and sold it.

    They never disturbed me and I could never hear anything going on, but the stream of awkward, embarrassed slightly lost looking males (of all types) walking past and sometimes knocking on my door by mistake got a bit wearing.

    But I do like living here - and there's loads of great stuff now in West Norwood.

    About a year ago I got involved in some local stuff, I've met so many lovely people.

    Hope the move goes well and welcome to the 'hood. :thumbs:

    couple of bits of entirely boring gossip and tittle tattle:

    people in the nail bar reckon that the White Hart has someone new moving in
    Greggs no longer sells bread!!

    To continue as a pub? I hope the seller has reduced the asking price significantly, because otherwise they're going to have to shift an awful lot of pints to make it a viable business.

    No idea... and quite possibly not true anyway.

    I hope the White Hart comes back but with sensible people in charge. It's in a good location and is ideally placed to give the Railway some competition.

    And on that note, I'll be DJing there in 20 mins. Come along and say hello!

    I was out in the car recently. I noticed as I turned into Upper Tulse Hill that a girl was waving in a strange way. Then I noticed she was carrying a can of K cider and the penny dropped as I drove past. I then was out in the same direction 90 minutes later and there was a guy, also with a can, shouting her. She can’t have been more than late twenties and he looked to be in his fifties. I’d imagine they’re both dependent on booze and she is prostituting herself to get enough money for both of them. It was just two short car journeys, a drop off and pick up if my daughter to drama school, but it was so sad to see. Anyone who considers paying these girls needs locked up.

    Don't think the girls will do it for free.

    Of course not. They don’t do it because they like the kerbcrawler. They’re either being controlled by menace, or addicted to alcohol or drugs or both.

    Has anyone, in the last year, seen anyone go into or come out of the Police neighbourhood watch place beside the dry cleaner? I was never really sure of the point of it before but now it seems to have been abandoned.

    The one in Brixton is the same.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    All Old Bill services between Streatham and Kennington seem to have been pretty much pulled back to Brixton copshop. Fucking shit if you get robbed or mobbed anywhere less central.

    FFS. Stop it. Your obsession - and apparent lack of meaningful action - over terrible but rare acts of violence is getting quite disturbing now.

    I'm creating a thread for you called 'Murders and Violent Crime in south London' - and there you can endlessly post up your comment-free cut and paste reports rather. I'll also move any of your posts that I see into that forum.

    *edit: done -

    The ghost restaurant that was Thaicoons on the one way system is due to re-open today with new name and under new ownership, according to a notice in the door when I walked past yesterday

    Nanker Phelge Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

    I only saw it from across the road, but it looks like quite a nice fit out...

    What is the new name? Is it still Thai?

    This is doing the rounds on West Norwood Local. Can somebody post on the West Norwood thread? I'm banned for a couple weeks :hmm:

    Much respect to the security guard, that's some real guts to get properly involved.

    (again, can somebody post this up on the West Norwood thread/ban etc, muchos apprecii)

    West Norwood Feast this Sunday 2nd is the last Feast of the year (though there's a Christmas Lights thing on Sunday the 9th, will send details when I have it).

    We've got a load of great choirs and bands playing on St Luke's steps from 12.30-4.00pm, including The Effras, an amazing local band with some songs that will mean a lot to people who live in the area....
