Honor Oak Pub to Reopen

Reports on Twitter confirm that the Honor Oak Pub (corner of Brockley Rise and St Germans Road) will be reopening as a Gastropub in August this year.

Last year the Forest Hill Society successfully applied to Lewisham Council to have this pub listed as an Asset of Community Value. We believe this has helped ensure it's survival as a pub, after rumours were received of interest from a supermarket chain.

This news comes hot on the heals of news that Sainsbury's are no longer interested in taking over the Windmill pub in Kirkdale. The Sydenham Society are taking the lead in ensuring the best use is made of this Asset of Community Value in SE26.

Forest Hill Society visit to Olympic Park

Saturday, 21st June meet at Forest Hill station at 10:30am for the 10:45 train towards London Bridge.
 
Join our "walk on the wild side" at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Saturday 21st June.

This walk, in London's most recently created public park, will meander through the magnificent and varied beds of wild flowers which are part of London's Olympic legacy.   The walk is generally on flat paths or grass with occasional wide steps - with handrails.  There are many seated areas, plentiful loos and a cafe where we could either buy lunch or eat a picnic.  The whole park is to be admired for its innovative and environmentally friendly planting and well designed, imaginative street furniture.

We are meeting at Forest Hill Station at 10:30 and will take the train to London Bridge where we will pick up the Jubilee Line to Stratford. The walk should finish at around 3.00pm. If joining at Honor Oak Park find us at the front carriage of the train.
