Hello! My boyfriend and I just bought in SE1 and moved in on Friday... what a fab area. Of course, we knew that before we moved or we wouldn't have moved, but it's just great being here! And our removalist told us about this site. Looking forward to checking out MarieP's bookshop and meeting a few of you... heading to the socials page now!

Hi, I don't live round here (though am about to move to SE5 so not a million miles away) but have worked SE1 for several years, first on York Road and now on Southwark Bridge Road. When not in the office I can often be found at Borough Market, buying cheese at Neal's Yard Dairy and lunch at Fuse Box. I'm also a jobbing musician (classical singer).

Hello Everyone!

I've been living in SE1 for about 6 years now and have come across this site every now and again when doing specific searches (very useful). Only recently have I checked out the forum and have to say, you seem like a really nice bunch of people, so though I'd be a part of it, too. Looking forward to chatting to you guys!

Oh we ARE, really REALLY nice. I mean, some of us are nicer than others, but we come highly recommended. Sunday 5th Nov. is firework night on my terrace, consider yourself invited - only y;ou have to SAY if you're coming or not because of security.

There are some things that never leave the Bermondsey boy. Peek Freans, I worked there for a short time in the sixties, Manse's pie and mash, I can still taste it, old friends and pubs that have long gone. I am about to retire after working in Western Australia for thirty five years. A visit to London is now due and I would like to catch up with old friends. Can you help me find Joe and Joyce Bird who live on the corner of Gallywall road and Linton/Lynton road? in the seventies. The house has now been demolished. Come on where is the detective in you? Someone must remember them.

My workplace has just moved into the area.
The good points are Borough Market and the great cafes and pubs in the area.
The bad point is that our offices have already been burgled twice and we have also had our windows smashed.

Gosh, where ARE your offices? On the ground floor with untoughened glass or an easily forceable door? Sorry to hear this. It's often the case when people move to a new place, criminals think it must be worth burgling the premises because they will necessarily be full of "new" things.
