    This Londonist article (http://londonist.com/2010/08/love_your_lido_charlton.php) refers to “enthusiasts from the Charlton Lido Swimming Club”. I haven’t found any web presence for them, and wondered if this blog would be a good place for them to raise the profile of what’s going on (and not going on) with Charlton Lido. Obviously that would involve locating someone from the club – perhaps a reader knows someone involved.

    How about the place behind the hospital? I think it is a social club/sports club but I don’t know much about what sports are available there, also I think there used to be a car boot sale there?

    Neighbourhood Watch – we’ve just received a flyer in Eversley Road asking for people to register interest in setting up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. I’m thinking of registering but would be interested in knowing something about about the value and sustainability of such schemes in streets where there is a generally low level of crime and anti-social behaviour? Are there any successful schemes in Charlton?

    Peoples thoughts on who decides what businesses are allowed to open in Charlton Village. I am constantly frustrated at how we are continuously subjected to the opening of shops that have no appeal to the average Charlton resident and that have absolutely no kerb appeal. Where are the nice cafe’s and shops that would revamp the generally shoddy appearance of the Village? Am I the only one who is of this opinion?

    • Rejory says:

      Wholeheartedly agree. As far as I know, Greenwich Council inherited from the Maryon Wilsons the shops on the Charlton House side of the Village. As for the other side, I’m not too sure but there does seem to be a determined effort to keep it as irrelevant and rundown as possible. As (according to Location, Location, Location) the ‘only village in Greenwich’ you’d think there would/could be a thriving community of shops & cafes!

      • Ang says:

        Agree! That reptile shop is hideous and we don’t need betting shops! An independent, stylish cafe with great coffee would be perfect! I would go there every weekend.

    • Chris Bloy says:

      what are people’s thoughts on the new cafe next to the florist?

    How about a decent espresso in Charlton, had a coffee at Charlton Valley cafe which was horrible. I guess a lot of people have no idea of a good coffee.

  11. Brenda says:

    I have some questions on boring household stuff – I am looking for a window cleaner for the SE7 area. I know Nikki suggested one but i couldn’t get through on the number. I’m also after a reliable wheely bin cleaner. Not like the one I used before who turned up the second time and collected the money in the secret place without doing the ruddy cleaning. I’ve asked a few to call me back but no joy. My bins are kicking up a stink!

    • Sarah says:

      I can help you with both Brenda. I have used Wheelie World for a few years, they come every other Tuesday and charge £2.50. Tel: 07785 997 625. Our window cleaners are Nick & Gabi. They charge £6 for the front windows and come once a month. Tel: 07830 113000. Good luck!

    I have just found your site whilst looking for photos of Charlton. I have just been looking at a website for memories of Plumstead and I think that would be a good topic on here.
    People post their memories and photos. I was born in Maryon Road Charlton in 1946 and remember the Coronation Party in 1953. Maybe a lot of people will think ” old fogies ” but it would be wonderful to have some where to share memories and photos of how it used to be.

    Given that when I moved to the area 9 years ago it was rated as a failing school, it’s quite an achievement.

    Can anyone tell me what has happened about the Tesco Express or Sainsburys moving underneath those newly sold flats near us at the top end off Floyd Road opposite Charlton Station.
    The builders have buggered off leaving a total mess and completely unfinished project. We have had many men and their wonderous machinery clearing sewers but still no joy. These are totally privately sold and owned flats which has become an eyesore of a fenced off derelict shell. Can anyone please tell us what is happening. And while I am at it the lighting is appalling down our street with pedestrians constantly tripping up on uneven pavement whichh is constantly strewn with dog mess, nappies,broken glass and litter, and what with the recent brutal attack on an innocent bystander we do need proper lit streets. Us women can’t defend ourselves in the dark never mind daylight and when chating to a a young female neighbour she was nearly raped down the alley that runs down the side of our house which is not lit and is strewn with rubbish which I constantly clear up because it is a private and the street cleaners have told me to sweep all the rubbiish into the streets whcih they will clear up afterwards whcih is not an ideal
    situation.

    Hi Darryl,
    Wondered if I was the only person concerned about the recent news about Councillor John
    Fahy’s alleged conflict of interest over the transfer of our public libraries to a trust called Meridian Link that he runs.
    Our beloved Maryon Park was in his safe hands and now it looks set to be run by a trust too
    Umm… why do Greenwich Council continue to invest so much trust in councillors like Fahy
    who are supposed to be a beacon of Culture and Leisure for the Borough but only seem to
    tread on our daisies and smudge the books?

  20. Aaron R says:

    Not sure if you have been hearing similar rumours, but I have now heard from several friends with connections to Thames Water (one a developer who has regular meetings with them, another who works for the company on the waste side) that the situation with the drought water levels is so bad that plans for standpipe only water supply is now almost certain for some areas over the summer. I’ve also heard that South East London (inc. Charlton) is likely to be the main target for standpipes due to its high residential population density, with West London, and the Olympic sights excluded. I’m hoping this is only rumour and emergency planning, but the warnings a worrying.

    Hi, I jogged along the Thames path this afternoon and realized some construction work is going on at the corner of Lombard Wall and Riverside (it is used to be an industrial estate and it is big). Do you know what is going on there? thanks Son

  24. This may be a bit petty but i have spent days trying to get B&Q to collect a dumped trolley that is a traffic hazard. They will not come and pick it up despite numerous phone calls and the council do not include them on their agreed list of trolley collecting … they cover ASDA, Sainsburys but not B&Q apparently.
    Any ideas for ways to pressure them into acting to prevent a potential accident – i have moved it to safety but it gets moved back into the road.

  25. mark says:

    What is happening with the newly-built building at the top of Floyd Road, opposite the Post Office? This was built then left empty? rumours said Tesco Local was supposed to open there, but all i have seen appear there is grafitti about Charlton FC, you even have that photo of it on your blog. This looks like an eyesore, so can you find out what is occuring here please – because at the moment your just posting pictures on your blog showing it empty and boarded up, and not addressing why?

  26. James says:

    Coffee – can anyone recommend a decent espresso coffee in SE7 – for too long my/our SE7 ££ is being spent in SE3/10.
    Thanks

    • Sarah says:

      James: have you tried the Old Cottage Coffee Shop in Charlton Park? I really recommend it highly. It is run by lovely people, the food is fab and not pricey. I’m a tea-drinker so can’t promise you an espresso but given the name of the place, it seems quite probable. Don’t bother with SE3 or SE10 – SE7 is where it’s at!

      • James says:

        thanks for reply Sarah, yes aware of Old Cottage at Charlton Park – excellent place in every way but the coffee… will head up there again and see if it has improved – if so I might be moving in!

      • JJ&& says:

        The people running the Old Cottage are lovely people and really keen to improve and refine what they are offering. They have a proper espresso machine so if you like your coffee a certian way i’m sure they do it if you ask nicely. The more feedback and support they get the more likely we are to keep what is a really charming local amenity. Do give them another try.

      • James says:

        just for completeness… been back to the Old Cottage and still plenty of room for improvement with the coffee – everything else 10/10.

  29. Amanda says:

    Pedestrian crossing at the junction of Victoria Way and Woolwich Road. Has anyone noticed this has been moved 6ft to the east? I am not sure what the advantage will be. That crossing needed a pelican crossing not just moving…… its a dangerous place to cross the road.

  30. Amanda says:

    I should be very grateful if older Charltonians could educate me about the building I live in on Victoria Way. As you walk down Victoria Way on the right there is a new build property where clearly there should have been a semi detached Victorian Villa. Was it a bomb site? did it burn down?? does anyone know the story of 135-137 Victoria Way?

    • Darryl says:

      Hello Amanda – I think the original housing was knocked down in the 1970s. Will try to do a post on it, as I’ve got some old newsletters about it (it caused a a row at the time).

    • Peter says:

      Victoria Way, I think that Darryl is right about property at 135 – 137 Victoria Way being built in the 1970s or 80s, An Orndance Survey map from the 1970s shows that the shape of the building on the siite then was identical to neighbouring properties, indicating that the property was rebuilt later..

      The houses at this end of Victoria Way (originally called Victoria Road) were built in the late 1850s on land that was part of an estate owned by George Rouple. Maps of bomb damage compiled at the end of WW2 by London County Council, show that the houses at the southern end (top of the hill) were damaged by bombs, possibly by a V1 or V2 which struck Mascalls just to the west. The map indicates that 135 -137 was only slightly damaged.

      • Amanda says:

        Am so grateful for your very full reply. I have always been interested in where I live and you have filled in the gaps. Much appreciated.

  31. Johnboyy says:

    Just seen the post about extending the Jubilee line. Would a tube be able to get up the hill from the river to Charlton Village?

  32. Lara says:

    With regards to the Metropolitan Police car pound – no joke, they have sent me the fine in writing and a telephone number to call, but the telephone number they supply on the form is not even for the Metro Police but is for a resident,, who is nothing to do with the Police!!! Which I find extremely poor due to this poor resident now receiving all calls for Fine enquiries.

  33. hamish says:

    Does anyone know if there are any plans to improve disaster zone that is the Woolwich Road Flyover junction? Every time I approach this junction I expect to be cut off or dinged by someone who isn’t in the right lane. The lack of any line markings or proper signs to indicate which lanes drivers should be in really does wind me up! I always approach the lane I feel should be the right one in order to exit correctly but I’m constantly cut up particularly when coming from Greenwich to head towards Sainsburys or Charlton. Its the same when coming off the A102 and when I want to turn right towards Charlton.

    Is there any more that will be completed as part of the Woolwich Road crossing and downgrading works which will include this junction?

  34. scarlet says:

    Why is it that the number of police regularly hanging around the entrance to Bramshot Ave (car pound side) has increased this year? One of them told me it was due to problems they were having with the volume of traffic at the pound and trying to control that. It is happening so often now that I am struggling to see how this is a good use of public funding and police time? It’s also making it far harder to cross the road to the shops and houses with all the cars being stopped, turned around and queued. Does anyone know what’s going on and when it’ll stop?

  35. Keith says:

    Would anyone care to share their thoughts on the Hornfair Park BMX track now that it’s been open for a while? I’ve used the track with my young sons many times and my experiences have always been positive but I remember many people opposing it before it was constructed on the grounds it would significantly increase anti-social behaviour…

  36. Amanda says:

    Queen Elizabeth Hospital ….. as many of you know this hospital is in administration having acrued huge debts as a result of the hospital being built by way of a PPI contract and the lunacy of the Department of Health who thought bringing together St Marys at Sidcup and Princess Royal University Hospital in Bromley into one large Trust. 2 of these Hospitals were built on PFI contracts. It was always going to be a loss making combination as accountants would say but it was in fact for those hospitals a poisoned chalice. I should point out I am not an NHS employee just someone who is concerned about what happens next…

    At some point in the near future QEH will be subsumed by Lewisham who will lose some facilities…. how are these two hospitals meant to cope with a downgrade of services and a continuing debt at QEH?

    One does not have to look too far to see the problems….. the administrators costs at QEH are already over budget and that will continue, the costs of amalgamating Lewisham and QEH would in fact wipe out QEH’s debt. I predict that in 2 financial years after the amalgamation BOTH hospitals will be in debt and we as users wil be the worse for it.

    I had an operation at QEH for Dupuytrens Contracture….. best google it rather than me explain and I waited 8 weeks, the service at QEH was brilliant….. its not a broken hospital…. its PFI that is causing the problem – not clinical expertise or the dedication of QEH staff.

  37. Ang says:

    Hi, been living in Woodland Tce for a couple of years and just found out William Matthew Flinders Petrie, archaeologist (1853 –1942) was born in Maryon Rd Charlton, grandson of Matthew Flinders (I’m Aussie so I like that link). Anyone know why a Blue Plaque isn’t up there? Cheers

  38. Hello, we live on Church Lane opposite warren court, at the end of the gardens of our house and the neighbours all the way down to the turning for the heights there is a void between our gardens and the gardens for houses on the heights. It’s very overgrown and we were just wondering if anyone knows who owns it? It would make a lovely spot for a community gardening space or allotments :)

  39. JJ77 says:

    I’ve just noticed the sign in the empty shop next to the baguette in the village announcing that a new greengrocer will be owning soon. Sounds interesting, but does anyone have any more details?

  40. charles says:

    Can Charlton Church Lane have Royal Greenwich signs as it would look good especially on the corner of woolwich road. It is good publicity as its a up and coming area. Busses cross there and there is the station.

    Would do the area good in my opinion

    Charles

  41. Hello, you’ve probably already seen it but the new greengrocer is fantastic! I got a whole weeks worth of veg (two large bags) for a family of four for under £10! It’s a lovely place and they do lots besides veg, e.g. sauces, milk, soy milk, yoghurt etc. I hope we all use it as it’s a great asset for our community :)

  42. Tam Lynn says:

    Can you discuss the consultation document posted to all Charlton residents last week with a plan to make Charlton into a 20mph zone and cover every street in Charlton with at least 3 speed bumps on every road

  43. charles says:

    Charlton Church Lane……

    Between Wellington Gardens and Nadine Street……

    The shops side of the lane…..

    Is this possibly the dirtiest pavement in Charlton?

    How do I get to post pictures on the Charlton Champion to show the pictures I have taken of the filthy state of this lane.

    The shop owners should also take some action in my opinion.

    I am a bit disgusted. The council need so come up with a solution to this problem.

    Charles

  44. Dan Browne says:

    Please help! I received a letter through my door address to ‘Paul, SE7 7AB’. However nobody of this name lives in the building and inside is a lovely handrawn birthday card and poem from ‘Mia, Mummy and Albie’. Nobody of this name lives at our address, so I’m trying to re-unite the card with it’s owner. Does anyone have any idea at all who the intended recipient might be?

  45. Damian says:

    A good topic might be the ‘Charlton Riverside Masterplan’ and the councils intention to destroy over 100 local small businesses & associated jobs to build more riverside flats.

  47. Lauren says:

    I am posting on behalf of a small events team from the University of Greenwich. We are organising a traditional community afternoon tea event at The Old Library in the beautiful Charlton House on the afternoon of Tuesday 18th February. The event is intended with the retired residents of the Royal Borough of Greenwich in mind, as an opportunity to socialise and enjoy an afternoon out of their normal routine. This is a not for profit event, but the price is £6.80 which includes a traditional afternoon tea, drinks and some live music entertainment! If you know of any groups/individuals that would be interested, could you please spread the word, it would be highly appreciated as it is difficult to reach this group within the community and we really want to make a difference. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any inquiries!

    Many thanks,

  48. Charlton resident says:

    I would like to suggest a topic regarding council tenants who do not look after their properties. There appears to be a real lack of action or ability in terms of dealing with anti-social council tenants who need to be made to take responsibility for the properties they are given.

    Ninety per cent of council tenants look after their homes, but the legislation protecting those who don’t seems to have totally the wrong focus. It’s as if the rights of these tenants far outweigh the rights of their neighbours. I live next door to such a tenant and used to be very much in favour of social housing before having the misfortune of living amidst noise and filth. It’s not good for parts of Charlton to be a dumping ground for people with problems. I don’t know what the solution is though. I don’t think it helps to give people houses for nothing, and then not educate them in how to look after those houses. But that’s another issue.

    I want to stress though that I am fully in favour of council housing for the vast majority of people who take care of their properties, and take pride in their community. It’s just a matter of looking after the needs of those who don’t have council properties and don’t get our properties repaired when there are knock-on problems from overgrown gardens etc. And finally, I know the same can apply to those living next door to people renting properties on a short-term basis. It’s just that in the case of council tenants there should be more that can be done to have them play by the rules.

    Charlton’s a good place to live. It should be looked after by those who live there, or if people can’t look after houses they should be given flats.

  49. Sammie Martin says:

    Does anyone else get a burning hatred for the closure of the roads because idiotic football fans don’t know how to walk on pavements? On more than one occasion I have been refused access to my home with my 2 young kids when I’ve been in my car. Also refused access when i was 39 weeks pregnant and needed to toilet to be bluntly told by a price officer he didn’t care i could walk round. Yes i could and be knocked over by drunk football fans. Also the mess the police horses leave along all the roads is disgusting, they should have a duty to clear it up and the club a duty to clear the fans mess!

    • Damian says:

      Fancy secretly building a football stadium when no none was looking. This should have stopped at the planning stage!

  51. PAUL BREEN says:

    Hi, I have written a book about Charlton or rather a book featuring fictional characters with a strong connection to Charlton. It’s a work centred around the lives of people in the area who happen to follow the football club.

    If you want to talk to me about it, or want further information you can email me at thecharltonman@gmail.com or my regular email of paulbbreen@hotmail.com
    I have written for Charlton Champion before and have been to social events so you know me already. I just haven’t talked that much about my writing until now.

  52. Sally Fletcher says:

    Hi all, I’m thinking of moving to Charlton from South West London (we’ve heard good things!) but don’t know the area at all and I wondered if I can ask for some advice from the locals!

    What areas should we be looking? Are there any roads that are better than orhers or should be avoided?

    We commute to Canary Wharf everyday so would need to be somewhere that’s easy for transport.

    Thanks for your help

    Sam

    • Spoon Taneous says:

      ‘The slopes’ near Charlton Train station; much better value for money than anywhere in SW London and you can get to Canary Warf in less than 30 minutes. There are many beautiful houses around that area mainly Victorian and Edwardian.

    • jjnse7 says:

      The first thing i’d say is, if you don’t know the area well it is worth spending a bit of time walking aorund the areas to get a feel for it, wander round the roads you like the look of visit the parks and have tea at the old cottage coffee shop. A quick drive around or just walking around the area by the station doesn’t really do the area justice.

      In terms of commuting pretty most of Charlton is convenient for the Wharf. There are a number of bus routes to North Greenwich where you are one stop away one the Jubilee Line. Alternatively you can take a train to Greenwich and pick up the DLR or a train or bus to Woolwich and DLR (although this takes you into zone 4 at the moment). If you cycle you can cross the river using the greenwich foot tunnel.

      In terms of where to lookit does depend to some extent on budget what sort of property you want and if you need to be near a school (a number of good Primaries in the postcode) but i can share my owne experience from househunts of areas you might want to explore more. Charlton is actually fairly small i dont think there are any areas to outright avoid but enivitability some bits are nicer than others.

      Ths slopes (broadly the area boardered by Chartlon road, Eastcombe ave and Wyndcliffe Rd) is, in estate agent speak, ‘ever popular’. It has mostly Victorian and Edwardian houses an flats and benfits from being close to blackheath standard with good shops and a M&S food as well as having the popular Sherrington School. the downside is that the houses tend to be on the smaller side as do the gardens.

      Charlton Central (I’ll steal the name from the residents association that is active here) boardered by Charton road again, Victoria Way, Charton Church Lane and the railway at the bottom has a number of very nice roads and well woth a look. Victoria Way has some very grand houses at the top pretty much all converted into flats now. Chalton Chruch lane on the other side has some nice Victorian houses at the top but gets scruffier towards the station and is a rather busy and narrow road. In between are a number of roads of predominately Victorian terraced houses, all of these are worth a look particuarlly Elliscombe, Priolo and Swallowfield. Just remember that one side of Delafied at the bottom backs onto the railway line.

      Between Charlton Church Lane and the 2 Maryon parks there is a real mix of property. Fairfield Grove has a small terrace of very pretty regency houses, Lansdowne lane and Charlton lane are also worth a look. Also worth giving serious consideration are the ex LA houses here, generally very nice and offer good value for money, some also directly overlook parkland.

      On the Eastern edge of Charlton on the other side of Maryon Wilson Park is a cluster of nice roads including Little Heath, Kinveachy and Heathwood Gardens and Wooldland Terrace offering a selection of mostly victorian houses . The houses on Little Heath are much larger than typical for Charlton most have 5 bedrooms and there are a few larger double fronted ones. The other roads are all very nice, some back onto parkland and they offer good value being typically slightly cheaper per square foot than the slopes or central charlton.

      Just to the south of Charlton park there are a few roads of 30s semis, some in Canberra rd have views over charlton park and Charlton house. Between here and shooters hill is an estate of local authority homes.

      As an addition, although its actually in SE3 so much posher Blackheath, just across Charton Road from the slopes area is the Rectory fields conservation area a cluster of tiney but very pretty cottages with some later infil.

    Is the travel lodge going ahead in Charlton???

    mid/late 60’s, non smokers, always had pets.

    They’re over from New Zealand… they normally stay with us but our 2nd will be ~4-6 weeks old so nice for them to also have their own space.

    Potential opportunity for any future trip down to NZ – they have great place down there.

    Please let me know if interested.

    thanks, James.

    I am not sure if you have shared the current consultation on your blog about the River crossing. The deadline for replies is 12th Sept 2014 and this is the link to it.

    They have different options and are asking which you think would be best.
