Re: expensive present requests from family

Disappointing that Christmas (irrespective of your faith, if any) has become more about consumption than compassion.  I'm certainly not speaking from a 'high horse' as I'm as bad as anyone else on this front.  It's just that this post has highlighted this for me.  Definitely have a word with SIL and...

Re: The Jeremy Woods Memorial Fund at Clapham Common Tennis Courts

Hi there, I thought I would let you know where your kind donations were going to. So we raised £1505 which was amazing. Net of Just Giving's charges that comes to £1454.10. The bench has been ordered and paid for and came to a total of £615.50.  The payment for the tree came to £368.64. So the remai...

Merry Christmas to you and introducing the 2020 programme.

Hi there, Well the year is coming to close and an eventful one it's been too.  Starting the year with a broken shoulder blade and two ribs is not the best start for a sports coach!  Skiing passed me by last season and I didn't really start hitting a ball full gas until Easter. Despite that, the juni...

Re: How I’m voting to Labour to Remain in Battersea and why I’ve done a tactical vote swap to help the Lib Dems.

Ok so I'm an ABC voter (anyone but Corbyn - who is a brexiteer anyway).  Who do I vote for in Battersea to avoid a Labour MP?

Re: Man on Bus

Sorry to hear that, OP. Thinking about that, I wonder what the best response from another adult (beyond telling the man to back off and shut up) would be. You can't offer to walk the child home, that would come across as dodgy. Tell the child to call her mum, maybe offer your mobile to do it if she...

Re: Man on Bus

I used to be a Policeman in London for 8.5 years and dealt with the full range of sexual crimes from indecent exposure, rape inc children and incest.  Horrible really but every time it comes down to the warped mind of the individual(s) not some benign clothing acting as an uncontrollable trigger poi...

dimelda nice piece of victim shaming you are doing there. If we follow your view, women should clearly not be allowed out - just in case some rapist decides to take action.
Re-read your post - it's appalling

Nail firmly hit on head.

Snow is here! Off Piste clinic in Are Sweden 29th March to 3rd April 2020

Hi there, The snow is here!  In fact it's pretty much everywhere from Northern Scandinavia, Balkans all the way through the Alps.  As many of you know I'm a ski instructor and have been since 1992 including 10 full seasons.  Since then I've continued teaching and training, mainly in Italy but the la...

Christmas ideas for tennis lovers!

Hi there, If you're stuck for a present then why not consider buying a tennis racket or some tennis lessons? I can get rackets for Christmas delivery and lesson vouchers would be valid throughout 2020 so no threat of having to play in the dark and snow!  If you are feeling generous check out the hol...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

So to vote Lib Dem isn't a tactical vote in this borough?  Bearing in mind European Elections have always been different from General Elections.  Is the consensus that the choice is either Lib Dem or Labour and the Conservatives have little chance?
