    Hopefully not. There are a significant number of objections on the Lambeth planning portal.

    Not what West Norwood needs, in my opinion.

    It says £48 on their website. Which is a lot tbf but pretty much on a par with most of the others locally. This is why I only get my haircut about twice a year :eek::D

    I never pay more than £8 for a gents' cut, but I have to say, Pop looks nice from the outside.

    I went in the hairdressers next to the little Portuguese delhi at the bottom of the alley from Tulse Hill tube.

    £8....did a fine job too, and quick.

    I've always found them too expensive. I can never get out of there for less than £10 / £11. I go down to Andy's at the bottom of Tulse Hill.

    I've got to get a bit of camouflage work done to disguise the receding hairline. Strangely, the more I cut it, the less obvious it is.

    Just wondering what the obsession is with the name 'pop'?!

    Hello. Our home on Broxholm Road was burgled yesterday. The burglars took electronics but also picked up my wife's wedding dress - presumably by mistake as it was in a black bag, which I assume they will have put the laptops in.

    We don't care about electronics that are replaceable but would do anything to get the dress back, which holds so much sentimental value.

    There are pictures on the west Norwood Facebook page. If anyone sees it, or what looks like it, please let me know. Thank you. Arran

    I had my hair cut at Pop the day that it opened (they had a 20% discount) - but even without the discount it is definitely less than £50. The woman who runs it used to do a lot of mobile hairdressing of families around here and grew up locally. She has a young child herself and I imagine this is quite a big venture for her and her family. They were very nice to me and the kids and I got a great cut and I wish them good luck. Their prices are the same more or less as Studio Salon Education up the road.

    I do have to do a sharp intake of breath whenever I look at hairdressing prices though - especially as I actively dislike going to the hairdressers - it just seems like a colossal waste of time.

    Yeah it's definitely £48 as I had my hair done there the other week. They did a cracking job and they'll also do free fringe trims if you're a customer, which means I'll be able to see in about a month when mine has grown!

    There's a lost oldish black labrador dog wandering around the West Norwood Triangle bit by the church. It was crossing the traffic about 10 mins ago.

    No collar and looking a little bit confused - can any one share in case they know who it might belong to?

    The BBC are reporting that Vale Street in W Norwood is closed due to an unlicensed music event last night. Does anyone know about that?

    It's all over twitter and Facebook. I'm just round the corner but somehow slept through it all. Seems like a party that got massively out of hand. Teenagers running riot, a 322 got stormed and reports of a stabbing and acid attack :( The stabbing seems to be confirmed by BBC reporting but don't know about the rest. From what I've read the neighbours were calling police/council etc from late afternoon but seems nothing happened to sort it out till well after midnight by which point it was well out of hand.

    All open now. I went through there with the dog a little while ago and no evidence of police anywhere, but there's a lot of litter and broken glass all over the place.

    So it's the teachers then ;)
    Edit, posted as a cheap joke as I know a few teachers who would be celebrating school end. Of course, a terrible incident. Hope everyone is OK
