Cash rich, thyme poor

Brockley's got another free cash machine, outside the new Sainsbury's Local, which opens later this month.

This brings the total near the station to five, plus one in Crofton Park, one in Ladywell and another on Lewisham Way. That's nearly one for every actual shop in the area and compares with none near the station and one in the whole of greater Brockley only six years ago, a situation BC used to grumble about to the cash machine gods.

Still relatively few places to buy good fresh produce, but hopefully the new Sainsbury's will help on that score too. With thanks to Scott for the heads-up. Usual full disclosure: Sainsbury's is a client of my employer, Edelman.
