Still no happiness when walking along Bermondsey Street. The Watch House now has a bench in the corner and I've noticed that this week in the afternoon they had a massive sort of cargo bike and a few tables too. Thanks Watch House.

And I've complained a few times to the council, Mr Mark Adams, about the board that Bermondsey Village puts outside and fills up half of the pavement. My Adams emailed me back saying that they would be warned as they don't even pay anything to use the pavement as advertising space, but nothing has changed. The last email I received was in June.

Depressing, the Council sells the pavement space (or not) and there's not much we can do about it.

I think they only charge 75 per year for the A frames.

Yes, they charge 81.50 per year per square metre for signs, planters etc. They consider a chair to be 1 square metre.
