Re: Clapham Common playground - a disgrace

Taxes, I'd happily pay more for better services, ideally enough to do away with food banks and fund proper elder care etc.  and yes, better playgrounds seems a reasonable start.  Some of the highest incomes in the country across Wandsworth and Lambeth pay below the national average in council tax.  ...

Re: High flying lawyer sacks pregnant nanny - loses tribunal

I’m not sure on the fine, I guess it’s calculated to be appropriate based on the nanny’s lost income. But in terms of trial by DM / mob justice, I think one of the reasons we are transparent about our legal system and have a press that reports on it is essentially to allow society to judge if they w...

Re: Loft Conversion Advice Request

Simply loft we're a disaster. Took over twice as long as they said, had no project plan so we spent 16 weeks never knowing if someone would show up that day or not. The work could have taken about 5 weeks if they had worked continuous 5 day weeks. We went weeks unable to contact them. It was hell. I...

Re: Belleville School - Any Meteor Street experience?

My daughter is in reception and we're really pleased. The community feel is still there. It's sort of the perfect blend - small enough for young children to feel comfortable and not lost and tiny yet with the benefits and support of the specialisation that comes with the scale of Webbs road. Persona...

Re: Wix to become part of Belleville

That's good to know, I did read more into the report as it sounded so serious.

I still feel the overall report is very poor and a far cry from the suggestion that they were making great progress.

Re: Wix to become part of Belleville

Not sure 'exciting' is appropriate. The ofsted reads as though some pretty serious safeguarding failings have come to light. It talks of extremism and failing to safeguard female pupils against female genital mutilation. I'm guessing this has something to do with the sudden leadership change over th...

Re: Did you get your first choice 2016 primary school?

We are 676m from the Webbs road site of Belleville and 3 days into term have got into Meteor. No idea where we'd started on the waiting list because we thought we were way too far away to get in. Great news but seriously annoying that there were a bunch of parents who accepted the place at Bellevill...

Re: Recommendation for a loft conversion?

I'd also advise against Simplylofts. They started a simple 6 week project in March and we're still waiting for them to finish. Just a joke of a company.
