Thames Poly Football Club history

Is anyone researching the history of Thames Poly F.C. and also Thames Poly Ladies football team. The Thames Poly sports ground during the 1970's and 1980's was at Kidbrooke Lane (now Greenwich University and shared with Blackheath RFC. If you have any information I would be pleased to hear from you, Tony. email: tonyjan@talktalk.net

Eltham Dodgers Baseball Team c1950s

I know it's a long time ago now, but does anyone have memories or mementos of the ELTHAM DODGERS later called THE DODGERS BASEBALL TEAM of the 1950's. They were very successful around this time and played at Welling Way, Falconwood before relocating to the Country Club facilities in Crown Lane, Bromley which, in turn, was taken over by the Blue Circle Sports Club. Please feel free to email me directly or post back to My Eltham. Many thanks, Tony. email: tonyjan@talktalk.net

Eltham

I've lived near Eltham High Street for 5 years and I've never seen any evidence of gangs! The closest it gets is kids standing around outside McDonalds but they're gone by about 6pm (and some of them are loud, but they're decent kids actually). I think it's a great place to live and my relatives always agree with me when they come to stay :)

Eltham - moving to marlowe gardens eltham

It is one of the safest places to live in South East London in my opinion (I have lived in Brockley, Catford and Forest Hill and Eltham is by far the friendliest neighborhood, and I always walk everywhere so get to know the areas very well). I live near the high street where it is quite busy though, so I'm not sure what it's like in more residential-only areas. I've lived here for 5 years now and people round here really seem to care about the area and would always step in if there was ever any 'trouble'. It's also improved a lot since I first moved here - there's been a lot of improvement on the high street and there are good restaurants now so it feels busier and safer in the evenings. There's nowhere in Eltham that I would call a 'no-go' area unlike in other places. I think you will like living here.

Not True..

I moved here almost 4 years ago from SW... I am a single young woman and have found this town to be quiet, safe to walk home from station at late hours and plenty of useful shops.

Has a slight 'chav'-ness (yet harmless) air about it at one end of town and simply beautiful the other (well hall end)!

Lots of lovely houses with big gardens on offer - and Eltham palace is really lovely to visit...

ignor these rotters who try to put u off - good Luck

Bus Route B16

We are asking TFL to extend the B16 bus route Bexleyheath to Kidbrooke Station to Woolwich Common (Queen Elizabeth Hospital) via Kidbrooke Park Road, Shooters Hill Road, Strathenden Road, Blackheath Royal Standard, Charlton Road, Charlton Village, Littleheath, Woowich Barracks and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

To provide more areas of Eltham including Rochester Way and Westmount Road areas and more of Kidbrooke and Charlton Road with a direct service to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. While also providing new direct bus links to Thomas Tallis School, Kidbrooke Station and Eltham. There is a real need to improve bus services for Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Thomas Tallis School also for the Kidbrooke and Eltham areas. We hope to gain further support from local people, local councillors and local MP's to get TFL and London Central to extend the B16 bus route to the Queen Elizaberh Hospital.

Bus Route Changes 10th October 2009

Route 321 Sidcup (Footscray Tesco) to New Cross via Sidcup Main Road, New Eltham and Eltham becomes a 24 hour service from the 10 October 2009 with buses running every 30 minutes throughout the night on all nights of the week.

Route N21 Trafalgar Square to Sidcup (Footscray) gets diverted at Blackfen to Bexleyheath via route 132. So from the 10 October 2009 route N21 becomes Trafalgar Square to Bexleyheath and will no longer serve Sidcup as this will be covered by the 24 hour service on route 321.

Rising Sun

Hi my name is steve and I am the new manager of the Rising Sun I would just like to post that we are only closed until august 26th for a well needed refurbishment and that we are not turning the pub into a young persons venue

we are keeping the old characteristics of the pub and upgrading the interior to a standard that our customers deserve

we will remain a community pub with low level music and a food offering until 9pm every evening

and will hopefully provide a place for people from all age groups and walks of life to enjoy a drink and a snack and some decent conversation in a relaxed atmosphere

I am 51 and have been in the trade for the last 30 years I was born and bred in Newcastle and have spent the last 19 years in swale and medway as a publican

we will reopen on 26th of August and I hope everyone will enjoy the new look rising sun

Regards

Steve Hedley (manager)

Wed Jul 08

Better than that

I moved to Eltham a couple of years ago and I've been quite happy with my decision. You get decent houses for your money, there are lots of nice green spaces and transportation links are pretty good. Most people I've met are also very nice, either in a well mannered and educated or in a down-to-earth kind of way.

However, if you want to move here you need to be willing to put up with a few things:

- Chavs. Few of them live in Eltham proper, but many find their way to Eltham from Kirbrooke, Mottingham, Blackfen etc. and make the high street appear quite downmarket

- Traffic. Eltham is not particularly congested, but it's crisscrossed by busy mainroads and rat runs. It also came as a shock to me how aggressively people drive here compared to N London where I used to live.

- Greenwich council. Don't expect the council to be particularly interested in improving the area, including problems related to the points above.

Get out more?

To Urban Rambler, I don't understand your point about me getting out more! What you say about Eltham being an important part of the Green Chain walking network is true and I have covered parts of it with my camera. I have also enjoyed photographing Avery Hill Park and plan to visit Manor Park off the Lee High Road. And lets not forget Eltham Pleasaunce with its lovely Tudor Barn. And views from near the Severndroog Castle looking south towards Eltham are impressive on a lovely summer day. I have also enjoyed playing Lawn Bowls at the Eltham BC which has a lovely secluded Green.

Do you have the loose-leaf book "No through Road" which covers selected walks throughout the UK. Since I am restricted to public transport, I can only recommend the walks out of Newington, Sole Street, and Wye. But if one has a car there are many other lovely walks available where a rambler can enjoy lovely scenary and real fresh air.

Thu Jul 02

It is definitely possible to have a normal life in Eltham! Thousands of people do. There a lots of nice streets in Eltham, especially in the vicinity of the parks and Well Hall Pleasaunce, and south of the High Street. Like anywhere, it does have its pockets of problems and selection of "neighbours from hell" but it is not definitely not a dangerous area. I have always felt safe.

The High Street has suffered a bit in the recession, but there are some good local businesses and local restaurants, and a positive point is that that it is not overrun my hoards of drunken youths at weekends like Bexleyheath or Bromley.

It might not be Hampstead, Dulwich Village or Blackheath - but it certainly isn't Peckham, Brixton, New Cross, Woolwich, Thamesmead, etc either!

Wed Jun 17

I don't live in Eltham but I know that there is nothing wrong with Eltham. There are some parts of Eltham which are really nice. Every area has got its rough side where young kids hang around, including posh Chelsea. Not sure who you have been speaking to but Eltham is nowhere near Brixton or Peckham!

Old Odeon Cinema

When will Greenwich Council grant planning permission on the old Odeon Cinema at Well Hall in Eltham. This building has been left to fall in to a state of dis-repair and is becoming an eye sore like so many other empty buildings around the London Borough of Greenwich which are left empty and neglected. Bring this building and other empty buildings back into community use or sell them for redevelopment. But please do not leave them for years on end to be left empty and vandalised and a meeting area for groups causing anti social behaviour. Lets see these buildings starting to be brought back to life in 2009 please.

Good News Route 132 to North Greenwich

Yes it is good news that route 132 (Bexleyheath-Bexley-Eltham Station) is being extend to North Greenwich via Kidbrooke Rochester Way and Sun In The Sand from January 2009. I hope TFL/East Thames Buses will increase the frequency on route 132 at the same time. To make route 132 a fast reliable efficient frequent service.

Route 132 will also be serving the 02 Arena at North Greenwich so will be a vital local bus link in the evenings and weekends as well as during the peak hours.

Odeon Cinema

When is the old Odeon Cinema at Well Hall in Eltham going to be regenerated. It has been empty for years and years and allowed to fall in to disrepair and get vandalised. It is about time Greenwich Council allowed someone to refurbished the building and bring it back to use as soon as possible as either retail units, business units or housing units or a mixture of all three. Planners have a duty to get empty buildings back in to use as soon as possible so they do not fall in to a state of disrepair and become dangerous. Lets hope the builders move in soon and bring the building back in to use.

Swimming lessons

Can anyone help me with swimming lessons for a very scared 4 year old girl. I take my daughter swimming every week, but she just walks in the shallow end and out again. I liked the old Eltham Pool, and so did she because the little pool was just right. Now the new Eltham Center's little pool, is too big, too noisey and always full of bigger children. I have tried to avoid times when the swimming lessons are on so it isn't busy, but it always seems full. The large pool is just too cold for her, and I have a 2 year old as well and the large pool isn't suitable for him. Please advise, 1 to 1 would be good for the beginning. Thanks Reply email.

Bus Route B16

We are asking Transport For London Buses (TFL) to extend the B16 bus route Bexleheath Garage to Kidbrooke Station via Eltham from Kidbrooke Station to Woolwich Common Queen Elizabeth Hospital via Blackheath Royal Standard and Charlton Village. Not only will this provide new direct bus links to Eltham for the Charlton Village area it will also provide a better bus service for Thomas Tallis School on Kidbrooke Park Road and interchange with other bus routes at Blackheath Royal Standard. It will also provide more areas of Eltham including (Westmount Road, Eltham Hill and Eltham Road) also Kidbrooke and Charlton with a direct bus service to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. A much needed bus service improvement.

Old Odeon Cinema

Lets hope the old Odeon Cinema at Well Hall Cricus will be renovated in the very near future to bring this classic building back into community use.
