    Have they been priced out by Dulwich Estates as well?

    Can only be an improvement, then.
    That entire row of independant shops in Herne Hilll had, more or less, been priced out at the same time. It was less a question of when they'd move than where to. :(

    LOL at Norwood Boulevard!

    Funnily enough the stretch from Champagne and Choc towards St Lukes is already called something different, isn't it? The road sign above C&C says something like "The Broadway". I'll take a look tomorrow.

    Traffic McTrafficface would also be good. The campaign starts here...

    I see the wording is as welcoming as ever to workshop-seeking 'ordinary' residents keen to discuss socio-economic issues.
    The head of Regenis Consulting is Darren Wisher. He talks about fracking.

    Agree the invite is not exactly inviting as it could be but Lambeth is spending over £100k on these consultants....relevant to Tulse Hill also so posted on that thread too.

    This popped into my inbox:

    After a series of workshops the community-led Streetworks project has drawn up detailed design plans to change and improve Norwood Road.

    The plans include improving Station Rise in front of Tulse Hill station, widening the east pavement between Chestnut Road and Chatsworth Way, options on parking, the Norwood Road entrance to Harpenden Rd becoming one way to allow for a new zebra crossing over Norwood Road, a diagonal crossing at York Hill/Lancaster Avenue and levelling the side roads with the pavement at their junction with Norwood Road.

    You can comment on the designs until Tues 19th July at:

    Norwood Road | Lambeth Council

    Oh wow, the extra zebra crossing would be great. I commented on their plans & suggested this, as you regularly see schoolkids (& others) risking their lives in the morning trying to cross that section of road.

    Can anyone think of somewhere that might sell blank CDs? Ideally this afternoon.

    That computer shop a couple doors down from Bumhole and McGlue? Can't guarantee but they look like the kind of place.

    Alternatively I have some and you could have four or five if you like (no cases though and they've been kicking around for a while).

    Ta for the offer. In the end the Post Office sorted me out (I forgot it opens on Saturday now).

    That's good to spend a few quid in a Post Office. It's an invaluable community resource, but times are tight. All they make money off is selling credit cards and foreign exchange.

    For future reference, the little corner pound shop opposite Sainsburys has them. In fact, they have pretty much everything - it's becoming one of my favourite shops in West Norwood. Whenever I need something random, I always start by checking there - and usually they have it.

    It's like the anti- This That And The Other shop - tiny but packed with stuff.

    They had 3 different kinds of feather dusters when I went in there last! :D It's like Aladdin's cave. If Aladdin's cave were filled with cleaning products and bric a brac.
