Brockley Bites - housekeeping

Brockley Central - latest upgrade

The site's latest iteration is now live, with a dedicated place for reviews (all one and a half of them) and a permanent home for the map.

Internet cafes in Brockley?

We recently received an email from someone in the US, planning on visiting SE4 for a while. She needed somewhere she could work during the day, locally, which offered internet access. Aside from Cafe Neu, which is another place which rarely gets a mention on these pages, are there any other options? And can anyone used the service in Cafe Neu?

Hillaballoo 2
Hillaballoo, the Telegraph Hill summer festival, has been given the go-ahead for 2008. Hopefully, they can build on the good ideas they had last time around, to create an event which will draw the wider audience it needs to have a long-term future.

The Shop on the Hill opens
The Shop on the Hill (next door to Ecosium on Harefield Road) opened on Saturday. We've not-yet had a chance to check it out, but if you have, please let us know what you thought.

Hey i like the look but so gutted as i found the same navigation and now cant use it.;0(

Brockley Jon said...

Eh? Please elaborate Lewisham Kate. The new look has been live for a few months now. The nav works fine for me.

The recent changes are more of an evolution than revolution - we do have day jobs you know :)

I have been re-designing my blogs was going to publish my new look after christmas. Dont come this way very often (read via rss) so hadnt seen your navigation. Mine is the same but blue. I wanted to look a bit different so will have to find something else now.
Anyway good work.

Not sure where to put this so though i would put it here. According to posts on the Forest Hill site there is a rumour that a Tesco Metro in opening up in Honor Oak/Crofton Park/Brockley.
Looking at one of the posts it would suggest that it will be on the site of the old DIY store opposite the Jack.

Jam Circus and Crofton Park library both offer free wifi and a place to sit. If the person doesn't have a laptop the library has terminals you can use for an hour (assuming they are working) and you don't have to be a library member, you can get a temporary card. There are also terminals at the internet cafe opposite the library, 50p for half an hour.

Thanks anon, I will look in to the Tesco rumours, though I note that even those on the SE23 boards are saying not to carried away at this stage. If anyone has anything more concrete to go on, please email me.

Oh god not the monthly Tesco good or bad? debate.

Anyone read this article in the Guardian yesterday, made me chuckle.

just wanted to make a comment on the Shop on the Hill as had our first visit today. They seem to have a nice range of stock - we didn't go mad only brought some houmous and although pricey, it was lovely as the shop assistant promised.

Cafe Neu offers Wifi and tech help when you get stuck. The owner knows his IT stuff and doesn't geek speak or make you feel like you subscribe to internet for dummies.
You don't get ticked off for spending the whole day in an armchair surfing on a couple of coffees
