• i'm not in for tonight, but just to let you's know - last thursday morning i called southwark council, and also two councillors for that ward, to report that the lights were gone at newington gardens and needed to be fixed as soon as possible.

    i chatted with a rep from the parks dept and got an action raised on their system, i have that number stored. called them back today - their action time is 7 days, so it might be sorted by tonight, if not it should be sorted out by tomorrow night at the latest.

    can someone please report back from there from tonight's session, or even just if you're passing by that way on your way home, and take note if the lights are working or not.

    if they're not back up by next wednesday, i'll ring the parks dept again and find out whats going on.

  • nicely done kev

  • Dear all,

    I will be in London next Wednesday and will be interested for a game or two. Would check back closer to the day but looking forward to it.

    Regards,
    Benjamin

    Awesome kev. You should break your collar more often! Actually, Less often, but... Oh you get the idea!

    So has anyone been past recently to see the lights on?!

  • I can check tonight on route home.

  • Awesome Adam, I assume you are playing on wed? I've heard bad things about the last couple of weeks... Who else is down?

  • The BBC is coming to film tonight at Downham at 7pm. It looks like only 6-8 people are currently planning on showing up. That would be a terrible misrepresentation of the LPC. C'mon folks, let's rep.

  • Feels like ages. Lets get it going.

  • Can someone please let me know if the lights are on tonight or not. I'll follow it up with the southwark parks dept. if they arent fixed. Thanks

  • i rode part newington on the way home from downam last night. appros half9-10. no lights.

  • OK i'll call them later on when this dose of brainkillers wear off. My speech is drowsy.

  • Looks like bojo is looking after souths polo, next time someone has a mechanical we'll be able to just pick up a hire bike from on harper road! :)

  • sweet! now all we need is lights.

  • PoLo.

    It would be good to see some people from ne.
    Souths deserves a revival.

  • no lights this evening then no? if not, i'll call them tomorrow.

    was gonna ring today but a) was fucked up, and b) was thinking the floodlights might be motion sensitive? like burglar lights... they'd need people on the courts for the lights to come on.
    probably not but you never know.

  • The lights did not show.

    They are not motion sensored either.

  • Btw kevin it is brilliant that you are doing this. If you need any help with it just ask.

  • No problem, I pay council tax to Southwark so I expect stuff like this to be fixed up if I ask. I'll post up what they say tomorrow morning.

  • Polo tomorrow, or even today?

  • Are you up for some hardcore* slackers polo next week, Emmet? Anyone else? I've finally got some time off and desperately need to get my polo on...

    • Early start, like midday...
