Re: Views on Chestnut Grove / Kingsdale - Help please!

Oh it's impossible to choose isn't it? Chestnut Grove is a lovely school as is Kingsdale. Add in Burntwood and Bolingbroke and we are very confused too! The bonus of course is this is a great position to be in really - all of our local, and not so local, state schools are absolutely superb. My only ...

Re: Four stabbings and a fatal shooting marks bloody evening across Wandsworth, Clapham and Plumstead

Oh for goodness sake Daddydaycarerocks, it is absolutely nothing to do with the Mayor. This country has been in a state of austerity for years now. Parents who have needed help with their children have not been able to get it after this government shut down funding for the Sure Start Centres, social...

Is anyone else feeling really fed up with the state of things right now?

I cannot be the only one just feeling utterly sick of the state of politics and social funding right now. There are more and more people living in tents across London (the councils issue these instead of council housing now it seems), huge numbers of children are homeless and living in hostels, Food...

Re: Manifesto Pizza

Oh we love Manifesto.
Best pizza locally and lovely staff.
They’ve even given us freshly baked sourdough bread to take home on a couple of occasions.
Very laid back in there too which is nice.

Re: Residents asked if they want lorries banned from Magdalen Road

Are you actually kidding me??? So where do the lorries now go? 
Burntwood Lane and Earlsfield Road. Shall we have a ban too and then they'll just have to fly over?
Or are there counsellors living on Magdalene Road who will happily see the rest of us take up the slack on the lorries on their behalf?

Re: Great swimming classes for children

Just a quick note (on my own thread!! 😂) to say that my 3 have just completed the KSC Easter clinic and yet again have absolutely loved it. The oldest had been struggling with fly but is now feeling far, far more confident and the younger two have come on in leaps and bounds again. The teachers are ...

Re: Residents asked if they want lorries banned from Magdalen Road

Ok, so I’m confused.
Why should the residents of Magdalene Road get to shove the heavy traffic onto Burntwood Lane and Earlsfield Road?
Surely we should all be sharing this?

Re: Can anyone recommend a good Easter /Summer holiday Wandsworth Test camp?

Thanks Katherine,

That sounds like just what we are after. Sadly we'll miss the Belleville (daughter is at Belleville) one but will probably book in for the later one at Ravenstone. Thanks.

Re: Can anyone recommend a good Easter /Summer holiday Wandsworth Test camp?

Hi Rachel,

That is great.
Is this appropriate for the Wandsworth Test though? We are not aiming for an independent school 11+ test.

Can anyone recommend a good Easter /Summer holiday Wandsworth Test camp?

Hi there,

I'm looking for recommendations for any Easter or Summer (or both) camps that prepare children for the Wandsworth Test in October.

Thanks in advance

I went to Postmark in Balham!
They still have a good selection of huge, really gorgeous ones.

Ahhh I might have found a place in Balham.

We love the old-school, glittery, gorgeous calendars 😃

Non-chocolate advent calendars - where????’s the 1st tomorrow and I’m running a bit late on this.

However, since Between the Lines has gone I can’t find anywhere to buy really nice advent calendars. That aren’t just the chocolate ones.

Anyone know of anywhere?

Thanks much x

Re: Looking for a place to stop en route to Cornwall

We tend to stop at Montacute House (National Trust) for a run around and a play on the swings. It's lovely and they have ice-cream!
Barrington Court is another option.
