Not on Northcote Road, but Blacks on St John's Road is closing down. I always found it useful, sorry to see it go.

Have you considered sheltered housing? Speak to Wandsworth Council, they have several locations: ... ed_housing

It will allow him to live nearby, but as independently as he can be.

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

I was hoping that for £165,000 they would also be able to renew the grassy bits, which are in desperate need of some attention.

There is a MASSIVE sign before you enter the car park saying, among other things, “there is no free parking”. Seems clear to me.

(You say that you got a ticket having spent “more than 10 minutes” in the area. This is not what the pick up and drop off area is intended for.)

Re: Unauthorised Absence from School

Wandsworth has a minimum attendance target of 95%, and the Education Welfare Officer reviews attendance records regularly and will probably follow up if attendance falls short of this target.

Apollo Service Centre on Armoury Way have been very good, even fixing minor things for free!

There's a new cafe at the quiet end of Northcote Road, at number 184 (opposite SDS). It's called Uncommon Cafe and is well worth a visit -- excellent cakes and smoothies, good coffee, and friendly service.

Re: Anyone know what's going on with Everyone Bikes?

Windows now painted over, so looks like they're gone for good. What a pity -- very surprising too, as less than a month ago they were advertising for a new bike mechanic to join them.

Re: Bullying at local school

Haven’t experienced any bullying at Honeywell (Infants), although my children are relatively young.

Which year is this happening in? What kind of bullying is it, physical or verbal?

And yes, the school will take it very seriously, so address it ASAP. Good luck!

There is a proposal at Companies House for them to be struck off:

I hope they re-open, as it was such a friendly and welcoming place, and very conveniently located.

Tickets are only available for parents at the consortium of private schools

And Honeywell school too, this year, for the first time.

Battersea Park fireworks are significantly cheaper though (£10 for adults and free for kids, vs. £15 for both adults and kids).
