Eltham post box has turned up alive, well and living in Swanley. It disappeared after almost falling into the Dunvegan Road sinkhole but not brought back. Part of SE9's heritage, it dates back to the 1920s, originally in Well Hall Parade.

Drivers fined for exceeding the new 40mph limit on the A20 Sidcup by-pass will NOT be refunded. Motorists had claimed a 'rogue' sign which displayed 50mph invalidated the penalties.

The Met claim the sign made no difference to the average speed calculations which led to the fines, as they're measured between cameras at New Eltham and shortly after the 'rogue' sign.

Thousands of motorists have been caught by the new limit, imposed before Christmas because of flooding in wet weather making the conditions dangerous. Work to remedy the problem will start soon which should see a lifting of the 40mph back to 50.

Save Our Trees! SEnine magazine is launching a campaign in its next edition to gain official protection the area's top trees.

It follows the mindless destruction of a row of oaks, one dating back 300 years, at the former Co-op sports ground in Footscray Road.

The trees should have been, but weren't. officially protected meaning the new owners were able to axe the ancient landscape feature before gaining planning permission or conducting habitat surveys.

SEnine magazine is urging members of the public to apply to the council for TPOs (Tree Protection Orders) for any tree on private land in the area which meets the criteria.

Around 500 in the borough are already designated but there are major omissions.

More details of how to apply and trees already protected can be found: rb.gy/w43zuw

The Friends of Avery Hill are applying for TPOs for a substantial number of a large number of trees on the triangle of land between Footscray Road and Avery Hill Road.

SEnine editor John Webb said: "None of this is to stand in the way of ‘progress’ or aimed at spoiling anybody’s plans. It just means that vital parts of our history, ecology and landscape can’t be swept away without proper thought for the wider community."

Meanwhile, the Friends have made an official complaint to the University of Greenwich's Vice Chancellor over its failure of implement any of its promises to compensate for the loss of habitat from installing its artificial pitches at its Avery Hill campus.

The University promised a new hedgerow, wildflower meadow, bird and bat boxes and annual wildlife surveys, none of which have been implemented. Overspilling floodlight from the pitches have decimated bat populations in the park.

A spokesman for the group said: "The University has acted with complete arrogance and cynicism; all the promises it made to gain planning permission have been broken and we have spent seven years trying to call them to account without any success. It's a wake-up call for the Co-op sports ground development."

Roper Street residents have won their battle to remove pay and display parking in their road.

Currently, only the east side of the road is residents-only with metered parking available on the west.

Two disabled bays will be created and a space for a car club vehicle will be introduced into the new arrangements.

The residents of the road, a cul-de-sac off Eltham High Street, petitioned the council complaining about late-night noise from car movements.

The proposed changes have been advertised and any comments should be made by February 28.
