Does anyone know when the Lidl will open in Crown Point / Beulah Hill?

I know we are well served for Lidls with Brixton, Streatham and Norbury, but apparently newer Lidls have free electric car charging.

Bit of excitement in our back garden yesterday... found a heavy metal object when digging a hole to plant a tree, subsequently posted on Reddit to find out the general consensus of what it was. After a few people advised we should call the police and bomb squad - It turned out to be WW1 Artillery, luckily it wasn't live!

This is so awful.

A murder inquiry was under way today after a young man was shot dead at a block of flats in south London.

The 25-year-old victim was blasted in the chest on a third-floor walkway on a housing estate in West Norwood at about 4pm yesterday. Medics and bystanders battled to save him but he died at the scene 30 minutes later.

It is the 30th killing and the first fatal shooting in London this year.

Witnesses told how neighbours rushed from their homes on the Hainthorpe estate to try to save the victim as he lay bleeding. One resident said: “My wife was at home with her eight-year-old and was the one who gave him CPR. It is very traumatic for her.” Another added: “He had a bullet wound to the chest and they were trying to put pressure on it to stop the bleeding.”

One report said the man had been chased up to the third floor before being shot. Residents said the area had become more dangerous because of drug dealing and violence. One said: “People all rallied around to help, some were trying CPR, it was very distressing. The area has got worse but for someone to be shot dead is horrific.”

Just a quick reminder to everybody that tomorrow is the first West Norwood Feast of the year. Loads of stuff going on and we have some great entertainment on up at St Luke's. Come on down and if you want to say hi I'll be on the church steps for most of the afternoon.

That's funny because I thought about asking you yesterday. I've got slots from July onwards - will be in touch after this weekend's event.
To add, if anybody is in a band or is a solo performer we’ll be booking from August to December in the coming weeks.

Slots are usually 30 mins with a 45 minute headline slot we try and keep for acts that are likely to get people up dancing or singing along.

We’re a bit short on younger acts and would like to try and get more of them performing too.

Please get in touch if any interest - PM me directly or through entertainment@westnorwoodfeast.com

Pretty much any style is good for us with the possible exceptions of sweary punk/metal and industrial techno...

On 1 December 2017, Mark Morris was jailed for life with a minimum term of 21 years for the murder of Emma Day, with a 30-month sentence for possession of the knife to run concurrently.



The Late Emma Day

Sentencing Morris, the Recorder of London, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, said 'He (Morris) must know the children are nearby. And having seen the children, he must know that he is leaving them without a mother.'

'You must have been mindful of them (the children) when you did this in a public street because you had only just seen them, although thankfully they did not see their mother’s murder.'


The judge said he was satisfied he did intend to kill Ms Day, referring in a text message to her on the morning of the murder to 'the grand finale'.
Very sad:

Best place to get an iphone 7 fixed?
I managed to swim a length of the pool before I remembered it was in my pocket. Dried it in rice for 24 hours but won't switch on, no idea if fixable. Brand new and uninsured :(

Why not take out phone insurance now and then make a claim in a couple of weeks?
