Don’t panic! The Greyhound isn’t going to be renamed the Ravensbourne Arms

According to an article in this week’s South London Press, the Greyhound at Cobb’s Corner is going to renamed the Ravnsbourne Arms. Quoting the new owner Max Alderman, the newspaper says ” We will rename this one the Ravensbourne Arms, with it being so near to the river of that name.”

As the above quote suggests, the SLP has got this wrong. The Coach and Horses in Lewisham (run by the same owner) is going to be renamed as the Ravensbourne Arms. The Greyhound will remain as the Greyhound when it reopens later this year.

The SLP is normally an accurate guide to local affairs. A case of  understaffing and the pressures of running a local paper is surely to blame here!

Sydenham Road Improvement Scheme delayed yet again. No work on Sydenham Road until 2012

The long-awaited Sydenham Road Improvement Scheme, first proposed by the Sydenham Society in 2001, has been delayed yet again. At the Sydenham Assembly, a report from council officer Andy Frazer was presented. The report  states that no work would start on Sydenham Road until 2012 and that work on Sydenham Approach would not now start until August/September 2011.

Work on the scheme had already been postponed for a year  at the end of 2009 due to water and gas repairs on Sydenham Road.
