Re: Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

Apologies the meeting on Thursday. I’ve just been told that when RR tried for planning permission in the enquiry to support their last application to open a senior school (in a building they had bought behind the Nightingale Lane site) one objection raised was that RR site already had more pupils th...

Re: Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

Thanks so much for all of your advice, we will be looking at other options and attending the meeting tomorrow.
We feel so very sad by the way it has been handled and the lack of response still!!

GR is not set up to be a senior school as it is so very small. Such a sad situation.

Re: Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

You may not be surprised but many new parents like ourselves are. No mention of this when we paid our deposit not long ago. The parents currently there (thanks to those who have contacted me directly) are shocked and unhappy.  Garrad's Road is very popular and a totally different school to RR. Looki...

Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

Dear NVN parents, It was with horror and disappointment that we were made aware just before 1700 on Friday evening that Broomwood Hall, Garrad's Road (GR) would be closing their doors to pre prep in 2020. GR will become a senior school and that is all we know!! Perhaps the owners of BH think that pl...

Re: Will writing recommendation please

It depends on the level of will that you need. A more complex will cannot be done over the phone as the solicitor needs to meet with you and confirm that you are in mentally able to make decisions. These days many people will make a basic will (which is made public on death) and list everything they...

Re: Mother attacked for Rolex as her children run screaming for help

There was a very bad mugging in Balham yesterday. Two men on a bike mugged a man for his watch and also sprayed him in the face with something.
They had a large knife. When is the Mayor going to do something? His promise to combat this crime if not happening.

Re: The Co Ord- Here to help

I would firstly suggest recruiting a website person to load your website faster.
I gave up after five minutes load time. Not a great way to attract clients.

Re: Wife refuses to stop spending so much - help

I would sit your wife down and go through all of your finances so that she is aware of everything. Often this can be a big shock and may bring her down to earth with a crash. If you feel that this may be too difficult to approach I’d like to recommend Andrew Brettell who has http://www.themoneymotco...

I’d like to recommend the wonderful Camilla http://www.acuworks.co.uk/camilla-festing/ who works from home just off Trinity Road or you can see her in Neal’s Yard. You won’t meet a more experienced and wonderful person.

Re: Tooting stabbing: Two men knifed in broad daylight during fight outside busy south London Tube station

It’s gone too far. Sadiq Khan needs to step up to the mark and sort this out as he promised to do so.
Perhaps now that it’s happened on his own patch he will do so.

Re: ANTENATAL CLASSES...which one?

I’d like to recommend https://www.lulubaby.co.uk who cover everything in a more detail and are non preaching the way that NCT is. It is also ran by medical professionals so offers a really good information. They also cover c sections and even if you don’t wish to have a c section they can happen in ...

Re: Sports Physio

I’d 100% recommend Toby Sullivan who works with a lot of pro sports people.
He works out of the few places such as The Re-Centre in Balham and also does home visits. His direct email is toby.sullivan@talk21.com.
He got me walking again after I could barely move.
