From the link given in another thread I've found another Forest Hill (must be a parallel universe). Sounds like a utopia and no signs of any of our former friends on there, although the fact that there is a South Park close by does worry me. See www.foresthill.org
An exerpt from this is: Interested in Forest Hill Church? It's a very special place, we think. Our vision is to reach the Charlotte community and beyond with the message of God's compelling love and how this love works to change the lives of people like you and me.

While I'm waiting for the hyper link to open - system here doesn't seem to like anything with Google in it, what a great opportunity for some twinning. North Americans will lap this sort of thing up and I fancy some cheap hols. Perhaps a Councillor would like to comment or are we stuck with the current list of trendy twin towns (see previous thread)- go on you know you want to.
Ahh now it's opened. Well that's confused me.

Hopefully we can select our SE23 slogan from one of these gems
how about ' Forest Hill is made to order'.
And who is Lesley Brookes?

Or what about "forest hill is open to the public during the second and third weekends in october" or, even better "forest hill is already over"

There is another Forest Hill in Melbourne, Australia. It was Forest Hills, like the one in the USA, but lost the "S" in the 70s. I used to live in Fermor Road, SE23 and send my regards to anyone who may remember me, John Cole.
We seem to have pinched a heap of British place-names over here, such as, Footscray, Camberwell, Chelsea, Bayswater, Box Hill, Brighton, Sandringham, Canterbury, and Cheltenham amongst many others. I live over here in Malvern. I'm convinced there's a Wagga Wagga somewhere in the UK.
Why don't you come over here for a holiday and check out Melbourne? I did in 1969 and liked it so much I stayed.

Good to hear from you and glad you are happy in Melbounrne ( guess you can see Neighbours earlier ) . Did you go to Dacres Road school.??
Hardly surprising a lot of British names in Aus really.

there is also a forest hill in bromsgrove, worcestershire and one in penrith, cumbria. There might well be more, but Travis Perkins don't have branches there. http://www.travisperkins.co.uk/contact/branches/ad vanced/default.asp
Where's Footscray then?
