14 September (Part 1) - Abbey Wood loses out again

Yellow lineWhat appeared to be a relatively short term restriction on parking on the Bexley side of Harrow Manorway has been given a degree of permanency by the double yellow lines which appeared last week. They were painted by JB Riney, contractors to Greenwich council.

Bexley residents had no opportunity to comment on this incursion into their borough unless perhaps they make a habit of reading the legal notices from neighbouring authorities.

Greenwich are no strangers to incursions into Bexley. They put up dog fouling notices along one of the entrance points to Lesnes Abbey which is nearly half a mile beyond their jurisdiction.

The ‘Before’ pictures may be seen here.

Recycling No RecyclingAnother thing that Bexley residents didn’t get a chance to comment on is the removal of the recycling facility close to Abbey Wood Station. Without warning it has gone.

I shall particularly miss the ‘Small Electrical Appliances’ bin especially as I stopped Mick Barnbrook from putting a small computer in his green bin and drove with it to Abbey Wood. Now it will likely stay in my garage for ever now that the itinerant scrap merchants have been driven out of town.

I’m told scrap metal still disappears quickly from front gardens in Bromley. Maybe I can swap the computer for some of the compost which regularly travels in the opposite direction.
