Re: Thomas Clapham registration confirmation

Thomas’s does most things by mail so they would probably have posted the confirmation. They’re on half term this week but the registrar may be in.

Re: In-ground trampoline

I would say don’t! You will still need a net to make it safe so it will be an eyesore anyway and then you’ll have a big hole in the ground for when they stop using it. Kids grow up much faster than you think! Just buy a normal one and then you can sell it on when your kids no longer use it. We used ...

Re: Visiting teen - what are some good activities for them to meet some other young adults?

The local teens hang around on Wandsworth Common. I have no idea how easy it is to just hook up with them there but if they can maybe find a teenage neighbour of yours who knows the ropes they could maybe get some introductions. I think it’s all arranged on Snapchat (or maybe Instagram?) so they cou...

Re: Ski equipment - hire here or there?

Rent them here?? Literally no one does that! Why would you go through the hassle of travelling with four pairs of boots and skis? The only thing you could do is go to the website of the nearest ski hire place to your accommodation and pre-booking your equipment (don’t forget helmets) - if you pay up...

Re: Is it worth buying Miele?

I’m a bit of a Miele sceptic I have to say. I have two Miele ovens and a microwave and various bits have broken over the years. The two ovens cook at different temperatures which is really annoying. We also have a Miele washing machine and tumble drier and I can’t say I’ve noticed any difference at ...

Re: Good children's hairdressers northcote road/balham

At 9 and 11 you’re probably better off taking them to adult hairdressers. Sally’s will seem very babyish to them. Vicky at Jacinta O’Neil on Nightingale Lane has been cutting my kids’ hair for years and they do special rates for children. She’s great with kids and they serve free hot chocolate and b...

Re: Neighbour throwing chocolates over the fence for dog to find

I love dogs (although don’t own one) so I have a lot of sympathy but I also understand why your neighbour is being driven to distraction (or poison in this case) by the dog barking. As the previous contributor suggested, why don’t you get one of those soft muzzles to put on him when he goes in the g...

Re: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s a slightly different charity as it incorporates both Breast Cancer Care, which offered support to people with breast cancer and the old Breast Cancer Now which used to be Breakthrough Breast Cancer and was purely a cancer research charity. I agree that Breast Cancer Now is a slightly odd name b...

Re: looking for a waiter/waitress in a Italian Restaurant in Northcote Road.

While you’re about it please can you remove the animal carcasses from the window. I find it absolutely disgusting and have to avert my gaze every time I walk past.

Re: Nut Free Schools Balham

Nut allergies are so common now I would have thought all schools would be nut-free and have policies in place for allergy sufferers. Just phone the schools and ask!

Re: Council under fire for 'encouraging' parents to send kids to private schools outside Wandsworth

Dulwich College’s fees are not £14,000 a term or anywhere near. I often see references to it having the highest fees in the country - I’ve seen £40,000 a year mentioned - but this is for boarding places for children who live overseas. The majority of boys are day pupils and the fees are in line with...

Re: The Shaker Kitchen Company - warning

Sounds like they might be on the verge of going bust. We had a nightmare experience with a bathroom company years ago - they weren’t paying their fitters, despite the fact we paid up front and went bust soon after. NEVER pay the full amount upfront and get your own fitters would be my advice. I thin...

Re: Step2two closed yesterday and Bills now gone too.

The thing about low wages is that if people don’t earn enough money then they have to resort to benefits; in other words the state ends up subsidising employers who pay too low. That’s why we need a minimum wage. These businesses are closing down because business rates and site rents are too high. N...

Re: Removal Company to Avoid (like the plague) BRISK REMOVALS

Just use Burke and Wills. Used them three times and never had a problem. You should take these dreadful people to the small claims court.
