Re: Kensington Wing Natasha Singh

Natasha Singh delivered my baby via C Section also, albeit Mina Savidou was
my consultant throughout the pregnancy. Can’t fault either of them for their exemplary care.

On a pure vanity note, my scar is totally invisible 6 years on. For this alone, I’d recommend Natasha Singh!!

Re: House sale - estate agent recommendations

Depends where you are and what you’re selling. If you’re selling a house between the commons, I highly rate Rampton Baseley and Thorogood’s. I find the Lavender Hill and St. John’s Road agents over price to win the business and end up having to reduce asking prices eg Dexters/winkworth etc. RB, Thor...

Will send you a pm. We used the same builders twice and they are phenomenal.

Re: First pregnancy, completely overwhelmed

Read the NICE guidelines. You absolutely can have an elective c section on the NHS. Explain you have tokophobia (fear of childbirth), say the same to the peri-natal team. It’ll take a while, they’ll try to talk you round, stand your ground. All elective c sections are different obviously, but mine w...

Re: Can you recommend anyone to supply and install artificial grass?

We used Namgrass and 8 years on, the grass looks fantastic. Especially looking at both neighbours on each side - it's still thick and green and looks quite realistic. We went for the most expensive option and it was still a bit cheaper than Easigrass.

Re: What removal company would you recommend?

Burke and Wills. I have never heard anyone say a bad word against them. They are great albeit not the cheapest.

Re: Legal family advice

I’m not a lawyer either but I would be very slow to be a stay at home parent unless you’re married. You have zero rights. Get him to divorce his wife and marry you or get a job and some financial independence. with the current status quo, if he ever leaves you, you’ll be left high and dry with nothi...

Re: Chesterton primary school advice

This is a good website that you might find useful.  https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/school/101012/honeywell-infant-school/absence-and-pupil-population Honeywell has 4.4% on free school meals (“pupil premium”) vs 48% for Chesterton so very different demographics. However educati...

Re: What's your school doing re: opening 1 June?

Another one who is unimpressed by Belleville’s response. Why can other local schools get back in June 1. I’ve been generally unimpressed by their CV19 provision. No work was ever marked, no online lessons. A world away from other local primaries, both state and private. And yet we will probably get ...

Re: How is your (state) primary doing home learning?

I definitely recognise Belleville from one if not two of the posts above. For the most part it's fine but I do think they should be doing live or pre recorded classes using the likes of google classroom. I do think the provision is ok but worry that compared to what the private schools are doing, it...

Re: are carpets a no go with children?

We had a house with wooden floors throughout. We then moved and put carpets in the upper flowers. Mainly because the house is much colder without carpets. Having done both, and we are going to move again soon, I think we will go with wooden floors - I think they are nicer from an aesthetic point of ...

Re: Good luck to everyone getting primary school offers tomorrow - let us know how you get on

We got our second choice - Belleville Wix. We live 30-40 meters away from Belleville Primary (Meteor site), but we are outside of the catchment area because it's measured from Webb's road. We will try with the waiting list, who knows.   You’ll definitely get a place at Belleville in September. They...

Re: Traffic noise from Wroughton Road

Of the 4 roads that link Broomwood and Thurleigh, I would say Wroughton gets most of the traffic. Primarily because there are two roads that lead off Wroughton, meaning that oncoming traffic can duck into Kyrle or Roseneath, whereas on Hillier, Gayville and Montholme, drivers can end up reversing ha...
