Re: Nitrous Oxide abuse and petty crime at Clapham Common

The cafe could install a wireless, motion triggered, wi-fi and night vision enabled CCTV camera. They can be setup to message someone when triggered and take real-time film or images, uploaded to a mobile phone. They're about £50, you can buy multiple camera units and some of them also have a speake...

Re: Motorists fined nearly £700,000 in three years at Wandsworth's most prolific street for bad drivers

"By law all the revenue raised must be spent on transport related services such as repairing potholes..."

Almost lost my car in that moon crater that was at the end of Windmill Drive for over 6 months.

Re: is there any face cream that actually works?

From the Guardian: Does the ‘foreskin facial’ mark the end of the world? Kate Beckinsale is the latest celebrity to try the treatment, which uses a serum derived from babies’ circumcised penises. Has anti-ageing finally gone too far? https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/fashion/shortcu...

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

Another empty shop on the Northcote Road.  Apparently Between the Lines just packed up and left last week.   Shops close because they're not making a profit.  It always astounds me when people bemoan the fact that independant shops close and the chains move in, and if you dig a little it becomes ap...

Re: Wandsworth Resident parking permits - no renewal reminder and a parking ticket?

I paid because of the (unethical) disincentive to settle at a lower amount if you don’t appeal further - a practice that I don’t believe should be allowed! From personal experience with Wandsworth and Lambeth, if you challenge the PCN within the 14 day period then you still get the discount regardl...

what value is there preaching to the converted?  

It worked for Jesus, and it worked for Gove and Johnson, so it proves that most people are gullible.

Re: Bulk shoe/boot cleaning service?

Do you have a) children or b) a butler? If not 'a' then you have time on your hands, if not 'b' then you're not posh enough so get some polish and clean them yourself.

Must have done the trick as they were quiet as church mice last night! Hooray!  🙏

Way back before the internet our neighbours had a loud party and we found that a stiff letter to the Guardian (copying in the Times, just in case) did the trick. I wonder if that still works? :roll:

Re: Not happy families at the Bolingbroke on Northcote

Nothing to do with licencing at all, its a management decision not to have screaming kids running around the place annoying their paying customers who've come in to get away from their own screaming kids for an evening. They should have made an exception for a teenager with a party of adults plannin...

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

I have never been too impressed with the fish stall on Northcote Road unfortunately. I remember when they had their own shop which was better. ... Moxon’s ...rude customer service. Problem is most the new younger residents who have moved in and replaced the families in the area wouldn’t know what t...

He’s also got cash reserves he’s not willing to use...
He’s hands are tied in terms of cuts yes, but he can do more!
So he has cash reserves, but he's suffering from monetary restriction?  Straight out of the Gordon Brown School of Economics.

Lack of funds apparently... because they don't make a bean from all of the festivals that we have to put up with every year.
