For about a month or so, moved to Long Lane, SE1, in the new development called Empire Square. Are there any residents of the development who are members of this site?
It would be nice to get to know the place, and get people's feedback on how they think the area seems to be.
I moved to Empire Square in November and lived in SE1 since 2000 so might be able to help with some questions.
Julie's right, the socials are a great place to start regarding finding out more about the fun and larks to be had living in SE1. Admittedly I've not been to one of the socials (part-shyness and part busy bee) but I know someone who has and they sound like good fun.
Yes the social is on 15th May at the leather Exchange on leather market street. Less than 10 mins walk from Empire square so no excuses. I first went to a social 3 years ago there and now have many local friends. I know someone who lives in Empire square who doesnt post on the forum I'll see if I can persuade them to come too. Scamp try get over the shyness, many of us have felt the same I was terrified the first time going up to a bunch of strangers and saying are you the SE1 people, but im sure like me you won't look back. Look forward to meeting you.
