Re: Local group set up for tactical voting and vote swapping to achieve a second referendum - Remainers please read!

Maybe after the election you could post how many votes you managed to swap and what the outcome in the relevant constituencies was (ie what impact it had).

Roofer recommendation


I was wondering if anyone here has had their roof re-done. Looking for a recommendation for a roofer. Ideally from someone who has had theirs done in the last 5 yrs and had enough time to ensure there are no post completion issues. Ours is a Victorian house between the commons.

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

But the election isn’t only about Brexit. Vote Labour and you have Corbyn for 4 yrs! Or a hung parliament.

Everyone will decide what they think is the best outcome but it just shows what a predicament we are in and how divisive Brexit has been.

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

Agreed Tory vote makes sense to me. A lot of talk of Lib Dem votes but in my mind in many cases it will only contribute to a Labour success or hung parliament at best.

Re: Ski equipment - hire here or there?

Definitely there for skis, boots and poles (and even helmets if you don’t own). All accommodation providers/operators should be able to point you to the most convenient local hire shop (and sort out a discount). Or a quick search on the internet. No point travelling with all the gear (s you already ...

Re: Anything to do?

If you are interested in swimming lessons you could try Kimberley Swim Clinics. I think they do swim lessons 5 days in a row during school holidays around those times.

Hope some of you managed to watch that historic event this msorning. Amazing. Those runners out there will know just how insane that speed is for 26 miles. Most couldn’t do it for 100m.

Hope it inspires a few to go for a run. It’s great running in the rain!

Re: Bertie & Boo Northcote Road Closing this weekend

The site where Blacks is, is pretty big. Anyone know what is going on there? Is that big enough?

Re: Clapham Manor Leisure Centre-What you think?

If you are concerned about ratios of swimmers to teachers you could look at Kimberley Swim Clinics. They are 4 to 1 at most - but they only run in school holidays for a week at a time. They are at Ernest Bevin school and have their own lifeguards.

Re: Hotel in New York

It’s not midtown but meatpacking district is good and the Standard is a good spot.

Re: What are your thoughts about a new kids store in Balham

Nick, Unlikely from me if I am honest. Unless you have money to burn I would suggest staying clear of trying to get a high street shop to work. I know everything thinks they have a better idea - but the harsh reality is very few business survive on the high street around here let alone thrive. Costs...

Re: Tramp in local coffee shop

Speak to the owner. Maybe he can still give them a free drink but they can sit outside!

Re: Psst! Have You Heard About the Alternative Tennis Camp on Clapham Common Westside

I have no idea whether or not the safeguarding account is genuine or not but i am surprised more people didn’t pick you up on your original posts just trying to undermine other providers while at the same time trying to fill empty classes. I think you need to work on your style and focus on your own...
