Barclays Bank Mediterranean Garden
We are working with Barclays Bank to enhance the small grassed area outside their branch. The proposed design for this area is primarily a Mediterranean Garden which should be water efficient and be an attractive feature at this busy road junction. Many of the plans will also provide good opportunities for pollinating insects.
Lamorbey Baths development
There was a resolution to approve the application by Montreaux Ltd on the Lamorbey Baths site at last week’s Planning Committee. It will take some time for all the legal agreements to be signed but in principal the application was to demolish the existing building to provide a 1248 sqm gym at ground floor and 26 dwellings above. For more detail the application number is No:19/01828/FULM and can be researched on the Council’s web site.
Armed Forces Day Poetry Book
Last November to commemorate Armistice Day we ran a competition asking local schools to write a poem . We had over a hundred entries . We were so impressed with the work we have collated them into a book. The book will be available soon to order on our web site
Co – Op Development Station Road
Brief update on the Co-Op development although the main Co-Op application went through in July last year. There is an application now in for minor amendments to this (see application ref 19/02987 – search on the website) which is still with the case officer. As this has only recently been submitted, a decision wouldn’t be expected until March.
Easter Activity Sidcuposaurus and Friends
Sunday 19th April
We are in the process of planning an exciting Family Event
We hope will be a roaring success! Eggs and Dinosaurs will feature in this exciting day!
Please keep checking our social media and web site for updates
Hoardings on site of the new library and cinema
We are working with the Lamorbey and Sidcup History Society to install some interesting panels on the blue hoarding these will compliment the information the council will provide on the development.
We would like thank Erith Demolition for sponsoring this project.
Mental Health Awareness Course
We recently invited levy payers to a Mental Health First Aid course, the feedback has been very good and all participants received a certificate as well as an understanding of common mental health issues and the skills to signpost people to support. We are hoping to provide more courses like this in the future and welcome your feedback. With thanks to David Whiting for leading the course and The New Community Church for hosting the event.
In March we will be launching a competition to design a logo for Sidcup that we can use on a range of items.
The brief is to create a logo which creates a distinct personality for Sidcup Town.
We intend to use the logo as the main feature on a selection of Sidcup branded items which will be available for purchase throughout the town centre. Items for purchase may include reusable water bottles, T-shirt’s and tote bags also the logo must be eye catching, visually pleasing and identifiable in various sizes and materials
The logo should be modern, unique and eye catching. We want it to appeal to all residents of Sidcup, particularly our resident student population who attend both Rose Bruford and Bird College.
Examples of great town logos include Belfast, Sisters Oregon, Peckham Soul and Melbourne.
This new logo will benefit local business, generate income for Sidcup Partners and promote a positive perception of our town.
