Re: Henry Cavendish & Rutherford House schools

I am an HC parent and couldn’t speak highly enough of the school. The things I love most about the school are: 1) My children are happy, confident and thriving and so are their friends.

Re: Wanted - Reliable Honest MOT Testing Garage That Doesn't Fool You Into Unnecessary Work - Ideas Please!

I would highly recommend Springbok Garage in Tooting (http://springbokgarage.co.uk). Very professional, organised and trustworthy. A few times they have told me I don’t need certain things to save money.

Re: Proposed cuts to state school funding under new National Funding Formula

It would be interesting to hear the candidates' perspective on the article in the Standard that London is expected to have 18,000 fewer teaching jobs by 2020.

Re: Look for good external painter for house windows

We have used Constantin both for external and internal painting. He has done a phenomenal job, is a very nice person, very professional and a real stickler for detail. A number of our neighbours have used him too.
His phone number is: 07876 021088

Re: Proposed cuts to state school funding under new National Funding Formula

Another reminder that the Department for Education consultation on education funding and the new funding formula closes tonight. This is really important not just for the education of your own children, if they are in the state system, but also for wider society. We have great schools in London, par...
