@chrisbeach Thanks for input, this is NodeBB but I know of discourse
@Gema Wow, no wonder why, it is fantastical looking stuff that would look good in contemporary homes even now.
@Gema What a great video, and fantastic sculptures too ! Is this chap still about?
@Gema What a shame it would be to lose the useage of this iconic building, many a night I have spent there from Chas and Dave to comedy nights, perhaps some sort of crowd funding program could be started to at least secure some sort of future. Whatever the outcome we ALL need to make OUR voices heard !
Well done to all involved, we got there in the end !
Anyone got any news on this?
Many a night I spent down the 'dogs', you could take a few quid, have a little bet here are there, some cheap food and a beer. It was a safe environment, local to the town, and of course had great transport links. The greyhound racing were not the only events that took place at the stadium, a plethora of subject matter was available from fun days to monster truck racing, there were even speedway events from 1934 onwards.
Many celebrities including Henry Cooper, Lester Piggott, Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno and Leslie Grantham appeared to present trophies to the winners
Now, the site has been demolished and Barratt homes are to build many houses under the name of the 'Catford Green'. development.
I took this photo a few months after closure. That sign is now in the care of aforementioned Barratt homes in one of their yards, maybe it can be kept in a more suitable place as it is a nice piece of history?

Description: The landmark Cat statue in Catford town centre is under threat of destruction from the developers of Lewisham Council! While I am all in favour of positive regeneration, The Cat is part of Lewisham's heritage! Without it, Catford would just be... Ford! Unite against the removal of the Cat!
Oh, and has anyone noticed my avatar
