Re: Cost of new stairs? Any ideas?

I just had one flight of stairs added, MDF, as part of a loft extension, and it was £2000+VAT.
In light of the above it was not a great deal!

Re: Northcote Road shop movements

We need a good "brunch/cafe" place to start with. With only cafe Tamra which is not big, Brew (where the owner treats its staff like b-grade citizens and pays them below London wage) and a few tables at Gail's it's not enough.  And a place where people can bring their laptop too and work for a bit. ...

Re: St Paul’s School

I would take it by the other end of the stick, call the school, ask them if they have anyone coming from Clapham, and if so, whether they can pass your details to the parents as you'd like their advice. I would think, especially if it's the overground and without change, that at that age it's OK. Le...

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

I second Farrago on Battersea Rise. Real good fresh food, I'd hate for them to go. They are lovely too.

There is not many options now when it comes to independent restaurants of good quality, we seem to be left with chains... a shame really.

Re: Swimming lesson for 4 years old

I strongly recommend Swinway lessons. 
We had started with Puddle ducks group lessons but in the end our daughter was not doing much there and was just playing, the Swimway lessons have proven to be way more efficient. More expensive, but higher return on investment I believe.
