Don't forget the Christmas Markets tomorrow!

A quick reminder about the Ladywell and Brockley Christmas markets tomorrow. The Ladywell one is outside Ladywell Station from 10am-4pm, while the Brockley one is on Coulgate Street from 12-6pm. Lots of food and crafts stalls, including my neighbour Eleanor's deli stall, which is part of her ongoing market research before (hopefully) setting up a shop in Ladywell. According to flyers in Ladywell Chippy, a new boutique/gift shop is also opening at 89 Ladywell Road tomorrow, though it looked some way from being ready when I walked passed earlier.

And don't forget that after the market the festive fun continues with LVIG's fundraising gig in Ladywell Tavern from 7pm onwards.

In other news:
  • The surplus railguards on Ladywell Road and Algernon Road have been removed today/yesterday. Hurray! Ladywell Road and Algernon Road are already looking better. We may need a couple more bike racks now though, eg outside the pub.
  • EDF Energy are cutting power to half the businesses on Ladywell Road this Sunday, in order to connect the new Oyster card machines at Ladywell Station. Despite having planned this work since the end of October when they applied to the Council for a street works permit, they only saw fit to notify their business customers on Ladywell Road earlier this week. They've indicated that the work should be completed by around 10am - if it's not, businesses face losing a day's trade on one of the busiest days of the year. If you're planning to go and buy your Christmas tree from Ladywell DIY on Sunday morning- take some cash as their credit card machine won't be working until the power is restored.
