@Abe, some work I did previously shows how far the coaches come to Dulwich. These are not "local" schools ... https://www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk/forum/file.php?5,file=342720

I'm reminded of the time they closed Loughborough Junction. That was a disaster.

Serena - not sure there is any room on Townley Road for additional traffic. It's bumper to bumper during school rush hour

The big problem with transport in this area is lack of East-West routes due to both geography (hills) and history (the estate). Closing one of these routes is not going to help and doesn't address _w

There seems to have been a load of waste dumped on Greendale on Tuesday evening. Very sad.

I think this is the document DadOf4 is referring to. Not sure what Maxted Rd has to do with anything. https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/online-applications/files/3BB4397FE784FEEEA087924C56A16891/p

Not sure the noise of the parakeets can be likened to the song of a blackbird or robin.

I found this recently - Penny Farthing Race at Herne Hill in 1928. Is the footage speeded up or were their legs really moving that fast? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HRpVV_x3N4

Paul, no need to be so aggressive. I do struggle to understand why £20k per week is not enough for DHFC or, to put another way, what would be enough. I've not attended public meetings though I hav

Like all football clubs, I would expect DHFC to spend whatever money it has so it is unlikely to ever be 'profitable', but I can see no reason why a club that brings in c. £20k for each home game shou

@Alice, I don't think the strength of state schools is why Alleyn's takes pupils from across London. I think, like St Paul's or other similar top tier schools, Alleyn's finds this to be the most effe

I am amazed how far kids travel to come to Alleyn's / JAGS. The pollution would definitely be better if the school was more skewed to local children.
