Re: Ravenstone School in danger

Sorry, can you explain the DBS and safeguarding point please?

I currently live overlooking a school and haven’t got a DBS check. Are you suggesting I pose a risk to children?

Re: Another 220 electric vehicle sockets fitted to Wandsworth street lights

This is really fantastic, and we have ordered an electric car primarily on the back of this provision.

BUT, why on earth can't the council or the providers sort out a proper map of where the charging points are?! It is infuriating!

Re: Recommendation needed: Fertility Clinic in London AND specialist

We tried several clinics Create: their approach is more natural, lower dose of drugs, will treat women with low egg reserves. The doctors are amazing, the admin side is disorganised Would recommend it especially if you work in the city where the clinic is as it makes it easy to fit in around your wo...

Re: Female dogs on heat - please don't walk them on the Common!

My jaw is on the floor at this post. There are few things more selfish than backyard ‘hobby breeders’ who keep their pets entire to pump out yet more dogs for clueless owners - no responsible owner will buy a puppy from them So the irony of one such person criticising other dog owners as selfish is ...

Re: Save Northcote Library and Chatham Hall!

LilyJessica
Surely people can use another local library temporarily until the new one is built?
There is one opposite the Asda car park and another in Balham - neither is more than 15 minutes walk from the Northcote library

Re: Not everyone employed by Wandsworth Council is paid the London Living Wage

I agree

As great as it is to have such a low council tax bill, it shouldn’t be at the expense of those who work there not being able to earn a proper amount to live on

Re: Need New windows. Advice?

After extensive research, and recommendations from friends, we narrowed it down to Ayrton and Box Sash Both local companies who manufacture their windows in the UK, and both have extensive libraries of designs to give an historically accurate design to fit the period of your house. Both have very hi...

Re: IVF/ICSI: Which Hospital?

Chuka What a horrible post! And how totally irrelevant to the question. Why on earth should that article make any difference to what JenM does? Jen Chelsea and Westminster assisted conception unit has great results My main criticism of them was being a bit ‘one plan fits all’ in their approach, but ...

Re: What DO we want on Northcote Road???

I think the fish van is excellent in terms of quality and price You definitely wouldn’t get close to the freshness from a supermarket so that makes them great value for money But if you want multipacks of farmed salmon fillets, it’s obviously going to be cheaper in a supermarket I had some wonderful...

Re: Neal's Lodge - Private Enterprise or Community Asset?

“They have been struggling to fill "Private" places, whilst the queue for Council school places increases - affordability is effecting everyone.” What are ‘council school places”? And that statement is just plain untrue. The waiting list of a space at any nursery in the area is months long And if af...

Re: Neal's Lodge - Private Enterprise or Community Asset?

Re: Neal's Lodge - Private Enterprise or Community Asset?

I remember this at the time... I believe a judicial review was brought by the sour grapes person behind the failed (and idiotic) attempt to launch some sort of local youth hostel at the site, which had zero local support and was a totally ridiculous and un-needed When their plan was rejected, they d...

Re: C&W Glucose Test... help!!!

Yes the test has changed now because the new Lucozade doesn’t have enough sugar in it. So you have to buy a pack of Dextrose energy tablets from the chemist and eat them a couple of hours before you go in for your appointment Phone the midwives office (number on the front of your notes) to check the...
