Don’t hold any pages

Today I thought I’d finally found a prime bit of Camberwell news as the poster for the Southwark News proclaimed ‘NEW-LOOK CENTRE FOR SE5’ (or similar). I assumed it was something to do with my earlier revelation about the Grove Lane development, but I’m afraid I can’t confirm that as the newsagents didn’t have a copy.

I make a crap investigative journalist.

On a more positive note, I’ve booked my table at Rock‑8 for December 18. See you there.

Update: I found the Southwark News in a newsagent this morning, and was very disappointed to learn that it was just a story about the renovation of Butterfly Walk; in effect, the ‘NEW LOOK FOR SE5 CENTRE’ means that there will be a new skylight above the pound shops. Or maybe I’m just being cynical because my big scoop didn’t happen.

Can’t believe I missed my bus for that.

  1. I agree — it doesn’t look like much of a change at the Butterfly shopping centre. However, we have covered the Grove Lane development extensively for the past three years — so keep missing your bus for us!

  2. Three years? Wow; and I thought I’d discovered something secret. You guys should really have a website, so I wouldn’t end up being humbled like this…
