Did you get a letter from Hyde about tennants (the pikey ones) hanging washing on the balconies? Seems it is a clause in the lease that you're not allowed to do it.

Hyde say they are going to crack down on it, which is good as it looks awful.

There are certain tenants in the Artesian building that are just beyond me, they have no respect for where they live. I've seen people spitting off balconies, throwing fag-ends in to the coutyard, and today someone had dumped a fridge and a broken mirror outside the front door of the........... ah hmm........ more 'interesting' part of the building.

I used to be a leftie but now I'm sounding more Tory I know, but honestly, if you can't respect where you live then should you deserve to be put in a lovely building like the Artesian?

heehee, yeah, got same letter..

it's funny how some things seem to be acceptable to "the other side".. mind you if that's the environment that you were brought up in then maybe it's just that you don't know any different..

apparently you're also not allowed bbqs on the balcony, and there's a sign saying no bbqs in the park, but a bunch of kids were bbqing in the park the other week.. i was using the running track at the time and kept salivating at the smell of food!! (i'm not obsessed with food, really!)

i wonder if the no bbq rule in the park will actually be enforced?! it might be quite nice to have a bit of a bbq in the evening over summer!

A condemnatory classist observation related to such working class pursuits as laundry which can be contrasted with approval of rule breaking for lower middle class pursuits such as barbecues.

Or did I misunderstand you?

Hello - new here- We have recently moved into the Artesian building on alscot road- just wondered if anyone knows when they'll finish the gardens etc?
Also- have problems with sky plus not recording..
does anyone know how much the flats in st james development will be?- what do people think of it?

I heard from Fernando of Savills that all the 2bed flats on the first 2 floors of St James have already been sold - I think the prices ranged from 300-380k. The next wave of flats to be released in St James will have 2bed flats starting at 440k (gulp!)

I have a freeview PVR and no probs recording on it at all so far. However, the TV aerial in the bedroom doesn't work, has anyone else had that problem? Some guy supposedly came to fix it but I am still having probs.

Wow - you guys in the Artesian building got a pretty good deal!

It's going to be very interesting to see how the St. James's development effects The Blue...I wonder if we'll finally see a good restaurant down there?

I don't know if the St James devt will affect The Blue as it is closer to Jamaica Road & Bermondsey Tube, opposite St James church

Does anyone know the website for the St James'Road development?
