@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 !

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!

@harryc2011 @cpoed Thank you for the comments and suggestions, request has been completed, forum is simpler now. Funny thing is I did have a very busy installation of PHPbb some years ago, it got very spammed and when adding security measures the database got deleted by accident, people moved over to the Hither Green forum and never came back. Anyway I hope this nodeBB platform can be used as it is super software, above all I just want something nice and easy to use for the community to promote the area, themselves and also as an ideas base..

NOTE: The categories I removed have just been disabled so maybe later if forum gets busier they can be enabled. Let's see. We all need to promote this space now to get the ball rolling. Thanks again.
