Re: Dexters opening up at Carphone Warehouse site on St John's Road

I cycled down Northcote Road last week, I was amazed at how many empty retail units there now are along this road - I can't ever remember seeing so many. So sad as its a great road that should be full surely. I guess a combination of high rent, high business rates and the Internet finally taking its...

Re: Recommendation for will writer

Trinity Hospice do a free Will writing week/fornight most years, maybe ask them when the next one is and donate what you would have spent on the legal costs ? A great cause.

Re: Step2two closed yesterday and Bills now gone too.

There is a massive, amazing cinema very close by at Southside though. Business rates & high rent costs are bad but a constantly increasing minimum wage is also madly to blame - it’s that’s such a bad policy to want to keep driving this up, who pays ? Fewer jobs are thus created and then (as we const...

Re: Homebase and B&Q near Wandsworth Town railway station face wrecking ball

Another reason to despise Sadiq Khan. We need at least one big DIY store locally.

Re: Please sign this petition against the proroguing of Parliament

I find the tone of the original post very rude and condescending - getting very bored of this Guy ranting on here and also Nextdoor website (where at least you can block him).

Re: Aeroplane noise between the commons?

Remember that many of us use Heathrow for holiday flights and for business. It’s a major employer for London and brings in many tourists who spend in our shops and businesses. The flight paths haven’t changed but in the summer we are all outside more, sitting outside thus hearing everything. We also...

Re: Hello from Happy Kids Dental!

You really would need a 50% (plus) discount on those prices 😬😬

I would really recommend The Dentist in Balham. - great Private place and children go free if you have your check ups there

Re: Four stabbings and a fatal shooting marks bloody evening across Wandsworth, Clapham and Plumstead

‘Oh for goodness sake’ is maybe a churlish way to start don’t you think ? Parenting (lack of) has a lot to do with the current issues, it’s not up to the State to take total responsibility in bringing our children up. We all have responsibility to know what our children are upto and nurture them. Ob...

Very sad

Definitely time for a new London Mayor to bring some new ideas to stop this horrific waste of life.

Re: Work about to start on £165k revamp for Wandsworth Common playground 

This will be finished tomorrow and handed over to the council then. Not sure how long they take to open it, but surely it will be open next week ... looks great

Re: Please sign and share this petition demanding Wandsworth Labour councillors bring a Peoples Vote motion to council

These people trying to change a democratic vote (on all different Wandsworth social media sites, including this one and Nextdoor - you know who you are), are getting very very boring. Let’s leave politics out of this site please. You have made your point and there are more important issues to discus...

Re: Aupair pay in SW London

Here is the government guidelines for employing an au pair. https://www.gov.uk/au-pairs-employment-law/au-pairs There is no Paid holiday entitlement or sick pay requirement. If they are sick, they must be still provided with their board and lodgings obviously though. Most au pairs have 2 nights baby...

Re: CEO of Wandsworth and Richmond councils is highest earner in South London in new 'rich list' of CEOs across town hal

So out of touch. How can someone running a council earn so much. Twice as much as the prime Minister.

Max £100k for these positions - I bet the pension is massive as well.
