Re: Next door vegan neighbours objecting to us barbecuing

Surely that can’t be right? And in the very next line: I mean I get it that if the OP was having loud parties or running a business from the garden then that would be grounds for action but grilling a steak three times a week would surely be hard to justify as an anti-social?  The first problem you...

Re: 'Covid calculator' says Wandsworth has a 45% hotspot risk

All those stupid, selfish people going on holiday - see the Wandsworth stats, many cases linked to international travel.

Re: Next door vegan neighbours objecting to us barbecuing

There are some amazingly self-centred and inconsiderate people in the world, aren't there? Yes, you, OP! If your neighbour was lighting fires and burning rubbish in their garden you'd not be very happy about it would you? What you are doing is exactly the same - you are causing polution and bad smel...

Oh dear, how can you bear your child to go to school with such uncouth urchins! ;)

Re: HELP! Newton Prep/The Roche or Broomwood Hall

NP has streaming in maths in the upper school, from y3 I think, so accommodates all standards.

Re: The London Streetspace programme - Balham to Colliers Wood

This has already been rolled out elsewhere. If you drive along Grosvenor Road, from Vauxhall Bridge to Chelsea Bridge most of the right turns are now disallowed. When you get to Chelsea Bridge you cannot turn left over the bridge. The most annoying part of this is that this is a major arterial road,...

Re: Examples of crimes in our local shopping areas

The police have had their numbers and funding cut, and all the PCSOs in London were cut by 68% (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6775205/Police-forces-secretly-slashed-5-500-PCSOs-ten-years.html). So it isn't much of a surprise that you don't see them on the street. Obviously they have also ...

Re: Rottweiler Wimbledon Common Incident - Appeal for witnesses

I find it difficult to contemplate that a 13 year old could outrun a rottweiler, but that's a matter of nuance in this case. You should report this to the police. You should also go to the site and check for any cctv cameras yourself. This would include checking sites where the man and his dog poten...

Re: potential foreign job offer for husband, seeking advice

I think people talking about divorces and child abduction are a bit premature, there are many things to consider before you could remotely get to that stage. While you are asking about schools, I think the first thing for you to consider is whether you will be able to work in Canada (in particular M...

Re: Swimming Lessons for 3 year old

The leisure centres at Latchmere and Tooting offer swimming lessons (probably all of the local leisure centres do, ie Putney, Wimbledon, Clapham, Streatham). There are also local clubs catering for young swimmers, but I'm not sure they start as young as three (Merton Swordfish at Wimbledon Leisure C...

Re: Footballer, Michail Antonio crashed his Lamborghini into a Balham front garden on Christmas Day dressed as a snowma

How can it be that the police are not investigating this? Are we really that short on police officers that they can't put together an obvious case of driving without due care and attention?

If I did something like this I'd expect to get banned.

Re: How big is the academic gap between Honeywell and Newton Prep?

I do not want anyone to tell him that something is just not for his age group or not in the year’s curriculum. And I want him to stop being miserable and demotivated. This is probably always going to be a problem in a state school, particularly if it is a small school or is not streaming. I had exa...

Re: More peopled voted for parties supporting a 2nd referendum, than voted for parties in favour of Brexit.

You have classified me as "For Brexit", which I'm not… Actually he hasn't done that at all, all he has indicated is that if there was proportional representation there would be a different split in the number for each party in parliament - effectively the Conservatives would not have a majority, an...

Re: How big is the academic gap between Honeywell and Newton Prep?

I think what you need to know is that your child will be learning at the level required for their progression. If Honeywell can do that, then great. But the thing to do is contact the schools and ask both how they would deal with your child. If you are not happy with the answers, or can't get an ans...
