As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high. Please support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    It’s chai time something opened up here 😉

    The site has been vacant for several years. The east side of cutty sark feels like a bit of a dead zone after the tesco so it would be nice if some more things open up here, creating a nicer walk towards Deptford.

    Signs seemed to have gone up at the old Lord Hood as well for a “Vaxine Bar and Restaurant” as well.

    Good to see another empty commercial space coming back in to use along Creek Road. SanZer is right in what he says about the east side of the cutty sark being a bit of a dead zone heading towards Deptford.

    I wish Gong Cha good luck and every success with opening their new branch in Greenwich. While providing some new jobs for local people.

    Gong Cha must be gambling on sufficient local traffic because there is no sign of tourism returning. I guess I chose the wrong flavour of bubble tea when I was in New York City because it was REVOLTING. 🤮
