Re: How to escalate a complaint against the Council? Councillors? Money claim? (overcharged for parking permit)

Just to say - I have had the same. Lost money due to the switch over to the new parking system.

Re: Loft Conversion Advice Request

We used Simply Lofts. They were good. Can't PM you, but if you can PM me then happy to reply with some more feedback. But generally thought they were good, on time and budget. But depends which builder they allocate the project to.

Hello, I read an absolutely heartbreaking post on this site a few years ago about a girl who had not been invited to her "best friend's party" when virtually all the other girls in the class had been. My daughter has been struggling to settle into a rather raucous class but luckily now seems to have...

Re: FREE Kids' entertainment in Wandsworth and Chelsea pubs

Hello.

I was wondering if anyone has used the kids table? Any opinion? Can the kids go there before the meal arrives and then eat with you?

Thanks!

Re: Help! Bad survey - damp, movement and a potentially evil tree

Our survey flagged up damp. Damp and Timberguard gave us a quote, the sellers knocked this off the price and we proceeded. You could try them for a quote. I have not dealt with movement, but my understanding is that it is caused by tree or something similar then once that it is dealt with then all i...
