Lower Sydenham Centre under threat
Message from Father Christmas
In an exclusive email from Santaland, Father Christmas has sent Yuletide greetings reassuring all his many Sydenham fans that it will be “business as usual” over the festive season.
No “staying in his bubble” for this dependable octogenarian who has yet to be called for his vaccine injection.
But there will need to be a few radical changes. Mince pies or glasses of whisky are definitely off the menu. Instead, Santa asks that a reputable sanitiser (or what he calls “Santaiser”) should be left in the sitting room).
See you at Christmas!
Residents Seek Judicial Review
Following the recent decision of Lewisham Council to approve the City of London’s proposals for their Sydenham Hill Estate, concerned members
of the community have set up a Crowd Justice account to fund a legal opinion as to whether there is a case for a Judicial Review. Time is tight.

The community living on Sydenham Hill Ridge welcomes the development of the City of London Sydenham Hill Estate for social housing. We believe
in building good quality, environmentally friendly social housing that will last well into the future. However, the huge increase in density sets to impact
the quality of the housing built, the historic environment, the conservation area, the local infrastructure and the natural environment, reducing the
much needed green communal space, felling mature trees and impacting the ancient woodland opposite, visited by people across London. We raised
money to fund the initial advice of a solicitor. Following that advice, we are now raising funds to seek the opinion of Counsel.
The approved planning application can be seen HERE

Talking Films – November Meet-Up
Welcome to Sydenham Arts Film’s new venture! Every month, first online and eventually, hopefully, face to face, we will… Meet Up to discuss some of our favourites moving images. These could be films, documentaries or series that are currently screening on TV or are available on any of the streaming platforms (subscription or free). This month we start with a timely bang, looking back to October to celebrate both BHM and Halloween, while keeping an eye on the most extraordinary US election.
Watch as much or as little as you like of this month’s Talking Films playlist ahead of the MeetUp, and then catch up with the group! We’re looking forward to hearing your opinions, ideas, and vigorous discussions!!

I hope you are well.
This is a strange and difficult time for all of us.
Recording J.S Bach’s 6 Partitas with the First Hand Records label has been my consolation and has kept me going.
I would be very happy to share this wonderful work by J.S.Bach with you.

If you would like to receive a copy directly from me, the cost will be £15 including postage.
