Fireworks displays


Recommended Posts

Several threads on the forum here already.


Dulwich tennis club (I think), Brockwell Park, Crystal Palace are three I noticed.


Brockwell Park free, Crystal Palace a fiver for adults, don't know about the other (smaller) one.

Well the Brockwell Park fireworks were brill, and much better than I remember Crystal Palace being last year (and free, too!) but getting out of the Park afterwards was an absolute nightmare.


I was so glad I didn't have kids with me, and amazed if noone got hurt.


Total bottleneck at both tiny entrances at the Herne Hill side, with no pedestrian crossing at the main entrance (Railton Road end). People were trying to climb over the railings to get out, and apart from a few police etc at the actual exits, there was nobody apparently to give information about what was happening to the massive queues.


Buses were rammed too, had to walk back to ED :))

Had you had a few last night Declan?


The Latin is a common phrase, indicating even people you trust doing the same as everyone else - in this case Leagle starting (yet another) thread on fireworks


Mild joke admittedly -


Asking admin to include a search function is another mild joke - ie there IS one already. Nowt to do with any "connection"


Why is it mean for you to specifically as about slinking away? I used slink away because


a) "slink" is a great word

b) the whole post was a silly arc of a joke, with the "punchline" being the equivalent of "I'll get me coat"


This place is getting way too serious

    • Pal? You do know what you're on  about because you've pulled up a bit from the SLP? What does that prove? Some people that bought expensive homes near a park that has long history of hosting music events in a bustling part of south London go into nimby mode and fib a bit to gain sympathy? Tough titties. A few moaning to the local rag is evidence of what? Another moan about not being able to access the park--------Not true-lies. The park isn't entirely out of bounds during events. They are enclosed- fenced off other than the country show. They could still hear the noise in Balham- doubtful but i suppose they know what they're moaning about-sigh. Having to drive to Dulwich to find a parking space? Parking illegally on THEIR street? More lies and those illegally parked would have been towed away but it's the weekend and people are free to park where they like unless it's a cpz or permits only which it isn't around Brockwell on weekends. I do know what i'm on about mush. You'll have to dig a little harder than a few moaners that seem more put out about parking for free.  Ban everything then. Outrageous, i mean Dulwich for parking,,,,,,Tut. What next? Their cleaner and nanny suffering ptsd after being assaulted with Reggae and soul music? House price has dropped below a million?   ---------------------------------------------- He added: “The Hoopla crowd don’t cause trouble but for the festival on the May bank holiday a lot of people drove here and the traffic was crazy.------ It seems it's only the festivals/ events that have reggae and soul are the problem and not Hoopla, a nice acceptable gathering for a nice white, middle class crowd!   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Brockwell Live organisers said: “During the event, both Lambeth council and Brockwell Live have their own independent noise consultants to actively monitor noise levels and take readings to ensure compliance with permissible limits. “Our sound levels have been agreed with the Local Authority and are built into our licence. The event team work very closely with the Safety Advisory Group and Lambeth Public Protection officers to ensure we do not go above the set levels for noise -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No laws are being broken and strict rules are being adhered to.      
    • I am registered at a different practice which I moved to three years ago following a steep deterioration in service at my former GP surgery. The new practice is even worse  -  it seems that everything has changed from around three to four years ago, and we no longer have a functioning GP Service.  So many disturbing aspects to the situation e.g. having to share personal info with 'health care assistants' and administrators who are effectively gate-keepers for the doctors.  One way I managed to get a GP to talk to me was by calling NHS Direct who called my GP surgery and they did call me back within 24 hours. What a waste of time! There was an article in the Evening Standard about people queueing in Brockley from 7 AM and even then not getting appointments.    https://www.standard.co.uk/news/health/hilly-fields-gp-london-nhs-patients-queue-appointments-b1150599.html
    • I checked their site and Golam Morshed is down as the Practice Business Manager. Cigdem Korkmaz has Complaints Department after her name, so send her a copy of your complaint too.
    • I’m looking to buy / borrow / rent something like the loaf bed in a box - a decent guest bed that stores away small.    Thanks in advance.    Dan
