Hi All - Just back to work and noticed a fenced off area on the South side of Tanner Street Park just behind the Tennis Courts. I think it is separate from the area for the cafe.

Anybody know what's going on?

The tennis courts are being resurfaced and will be out of action until March. Hopefully puddle-free when they re-open.

Does anyone know what the building in the south-east corner of the park is being redeveloped into? There was some consultation info posted online a while ago, but I haven't been able to find anything saying what the outcome of that was.

TJCD above refers to a cafe... is that in relation to this plot or something else?

Yup, Pique-Nique, it's going to be a sister restaurant/cafe to Casse Croute on Bermondsey St itself.

Hiring now, opening soon.

Thanks for the update. I'll be back in town soon so will be sure to swing by. Tanner St park is just great in the summer.

We went to have dinner in Pique-Nique and it was lovely indeed. They also do breakfast in the morning and on a day like today it is nice to sit outside. There is, however, a wooden fence placed right in front of the restaurant which is a bit of an eyesore. Does anyone know what and why this is?

It's the drinking fountain (originally the top of St Olaves church on Tooley St). It's been boarded up for safety reasons, some of the top stones are loose. There have been discussions regarding a redevelopment but timing is still not clear. Hopefully it will happen soon now Pique Nique has opened and the area is looking a lot smarter. (There is a separate thread running on this somewhere).
