I noticed while I was walking today that the old Mary Datchelor School (which then became the Save The Children head office) and the Butterfly tennis courts between Grove Lane and Camberwell Grove have both been acquired by St George PLC. Looks like there’s going to be a big new development there, and judging by their website they deal in pretty high‐end housing. I s Camberwell about to become super‐chic?
I also saw that police are seeking volunteers to man the front desk of the police station with a view to partially re‐opening it, not to station a full squad but to have a place to report crime. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of response the community gives to this.
Finally, Bee’s Auto Bits has closed down. I must get a shot of it’s sign (“You won’t get stung here!”) before it becomes another off licence or fried chicken shop.
Update: Photo of Bee’s Auto Bits added.
