Love of Dancing

I was taught 3 times a week by Barbara Small. I only went to Sydenham for the exams. I went to YMCA as assistant and did exhibitions. They were the best days of my life, late 60s early 70s. It started my lifelong love of dance.

St Michaels and all angels Primary School

I went here from 1953 to 1959. The headmaster was a Mr Baker. A lot of the school was old with open fires in the classrooms and an outside urinal open to the elements. I started on 30th April 1953 and soon after that we celebrated the Coronation in early June. Every kid got a red white and blue propelling pencil. I wish I still had mine. It was a time of the first sputniks and all the kids were talking' about space and the planets. We used to swap Brooke Bond "out into space" cards on the playground. My first teacher was Mrs Adamson, then Mrs Night and Miss Belsham. In the juniors I was with Mrs Pinacre, Mr Barham and Mr Marsh. All the kids tried to avoid being in Mr Oakley's class because he had a cane and certainly used it. WE had a Mrs Singleton for singing and one day she handed out the singing books. Mine had a bloody great scribble mark on the front. She saw the scribble while she was walking round listening to the singing and smacked my legs thinking that I had defaced the book.

St Bartholomews School

does anyone know who owns this garage in venner road

there is a garage in venner road, just behind the Pedder Estate agents office. If you're standing on Sydenham High Street looking down Venner Road it's on the immediate left just after the Pedder office but before the flats. It has a black concertina garage door and a qwerky tiled roof with a door in it at the front. At the moment there's some temporary metal mesh fencing around the front. I'm looking for a workspace in the area and this looks about the right size. anyone know who I could contact about it ?

This would not be final advice you can listen to. Most of the stories about the hoodies are found on the ForestHillSociety site and they appear to be centred upon an area far over towards the PerryValeSE23

side. Also,maybe more important to you,there is a real connection not too well voiced at present about the vicinity of school playgrounds and lanes to one side. If you are near a school and hoodies who acccost youngers for a tour de force to break windows then move out. I would just call into the police station-it was once in DartmouthRoad but check your area-and just ask tentatively to speak to an officer re frequency of reports to finalise your decision. GOOD FORTUNE and FAREWELL.

32 Champion Road, corner of Miall Road opposite St Michaels School

My name is John Emery I am 48 born boxing day 1962.

My family lived at number 32 Champion Road, Sydenham corner of Miall Road opposite St Michaels School. If you take a look on google street map it's just a pleasant summer's day photo of the community hall and Miall Road is now known as "Miall Walk". I was hoping that there might be some photographs of the property before it was knocked down in the early 1970's or whilst it was being torn down even. Or perhaps I could be directed to an archive either in the town hall or on the internet. I have also a lot of local knowledge and memories from childhood to offer other people if they are searching for answers or looking for memorabilia such as I. I attended Adamsrill School from 1967 until 1973 when my family moved to Fordmill Road near Catford.

I vividly remember the off licence at the top of newlands park.

I can still remember the smell of the wood and bottles. We use to collect our lemonade bottles and return them for cash.cant remember how much we use to get but it seemed like a fortune. I can remember the owners I think the wife was german and they had a son and i seem to remember he later owned a furniture shop towards the top of sydenham. Later they had a couple run the off licence for them. I do remember the ice cream parlour i loved it. It was a real treat to sit and and have your icecream. Im 44 and I can just remember the cinema and it turning into safeways. I also had friends that worked in the dye factory.

Now as for the department store cobbs that was a real treat to cut through. We use to go and see father christmas there of course it later bcame twilights but they never changed the toilets they were exactly the same as when they were the store.

An interiors shops would be good (as long as it's good quality rather than the tat sold in the shop near peppermint).

I started a blog which aims to improve the look of the high street (www.whatifsydenham.wordpress.com). We are talking to a number of local shops and restaurants. There are a lot of possible developments from new signs welcoming you to the high street, the high street refurbishments right down to Kent House Road, a pocket market, a fishmongers and possible butchers, a new tapas bar (soon to be refurbished), a possible new wood fired pizza place, a new yoga/pilates studio in the old sorting office, the Somerfield will be a co-operative soon, the development of the old Greyhound pub has been approved, the old blind factory going to be developed, JH skincare has graced Kirkdale, as has Alambra, Home park is getting an outdoor gym, film shows in the summer, the adventure playground is being done up...Lots is happening, not to mention the Arts Festival.

Well, I was fascinated to read this!

Some years later, 1965 I think, I ran into Wally Barnes who was living in a somewhat ramshackle house in West Norwood. He was very anxious to sell me a Raymond Mays stord in his garage. Failing that, would I like to buy this, or maybe that? I declined these offers but I did acquire from him one of only five Bond Type C single seater F3 cars made. Being rather younger and before the police became what they are now, I was able to drive this remarkable machine from Norwood to Bexleyheath. I made many attempts to get him to tell me what he knew of the history of the car but he always got sidetracked onto something else, like his extraordinary performance in the Easter Long Handicap or somesuch at Brooklands in 1937.

Mr. Wally Barnes

In the 1950s there was a motor cycle dealer who specialized in pre war motor bikes, Rudge, OK Supreme, Levis, Norton etc., His name was Wally Barnes, he had a lock up garage in Venner Road, if you were facing Sydenham High Street it was on the right just before the junction with Sydenham High Street. He was a great raconteur and we as teenagers loved his stories about the old motor biking days. When old enough some of us bought motorbikes off him usually in the £17/10 to £20.00 range. Anyone know what happened to Wally? How long he stayed in Venner Road or what is there now?

Bell Green Demolition

Yeh I remember as a kid in the late fifties breaking into the condemned houses in Miall Road to make dens. One of the houses seemed to be occupied by people living rough so we kept away from them after that. I used to work in the Sydenham District Office of the gas board at Bell Green. It employed hundreds of people in gas manufacture, purchasing, sales and service and so on. I expect it's all knocked down now. We used to play the snooker at Livesey Hall at the bottom of Perry Hill. I now live in North Staffordshire.

Monthly Jazz in the Golden Lion

Hi, anyone interested in live music locally might be glad to hear that on the last Tuesday of the month the Golden Lion has live free Jazz. It is always quality stuff and from some quite renowned players.

It is 'serious' jazz and many of the crowd are obviously real Jazz fans. Sitting up nearer the band you are expected to listen attentively to the performance rather than chat, but at the front of the pub it is fine to sit and chat whilst still enjoying the music. It really is an absolute gem of a night.

I know that they are taking a break for August but are back in September 2008. I don't know how long they will keep this going but i hope for a long while.
