Re: Laser Tag party recommendations

Yes I used Laser Lions for my 8 year old’s Laser tag party earlier this November. They were absolutely brilliant. We had a lady called Claire with an assistant and she was really great with the kids. They were organised, quick at setting up and clearing up. She kept all the kids in check and they ha...

Re: Hall hire for a laser tag birthday party

A bit further from you, but I have just booked a laser tag party at St Barnabus church on Clapham Common Northside. The hall is on the smaller side but I've only got 16 kids so should be fine. Really easy to darken up - a friend of mine had a neon disco party for thirty there so I think it is big en...

Re: Hotel in Paris

I've stayed at the Mob Hotel in Paris twice - and I love it. It has a very bohemian, relaxed vibe. The bedrooms are small, but adequate, clean and modern. The beds are super comfy, there are some shadow puppets you can use on the wall, a mobile phone to make free ...

Re: birthday party venues

The Adventure Zone soft play in the Wandle Recreation Leisure centre on Mapleton Road near to the Southside Centre is fantastic. It's a soft play so you don't need to book an entertainer too and you have the place entirely to yourself. The kids love running around like mad and there is room for pare...

Re: Grandma's funeral

So sorry for your loss gemima. I took my sons, 5 and 2.5 to my father's funeral. I strongly believe that they should understand life and death and they absolutely loved my father so it was important for me that they were there. To be honest, the service was long and so I had to give them the iPhones...

Re: Looking for recommendations for private yoga lessons teacher

Hi, I would highly recommend Becks Balson. I go to her community class every Tuesday morning at the Training and Resource Centre in Wandsworth, but she also comes to my home for a private session with my husband and I. He has a bad back and she has really been helping with that and when he can't mak...

Re: Offers on FairTrade Homewares at the Northcote Road Festival

I can vouch for Tullika at Boho Homes. Her homewares are gorgeous! The trays and bowls make great gifts. They are a bit different, ethical and reasonably priced, what more could one want! Tullika sources many of her products from India. She has personal relationships with local artisans and pays the...

Re: Do fee paying schools offer help if you get into financial difficulty

If you can't afford it don't send your kids there as you risk having to pull them out. Private schools will not bail you out if you run out of money. The bursary is a bit like a scholarship so your kid has to be amazing in a certain subject. And as someone said before, they can help you till the end...

Re: Birthday Party ideas for 8 year old boy!

My seven year old has been to a couple of Nerf gun parties both indoors and outdoors. You have to arrange the venue, but they come to you. The outdoor one he went to had inflatable tanks and an obstacle course they had to navigate. All the bullets are foam and do not hurt. Or you could try a go-kart...

Graffiti everywhere at playground in Clapham Common Northside

I was really upset to see so much graffiti on the playground in Clapham Common Northside. This playground is really falling out of disrepair. They closed it a few years ago for ages. I was hopeful there would be revamp, but all the council did was take out the sand pit. Before this playground falls ...

We moved our son mid year in Year 1. He loved his old school so we had to make him comfortable with the move. We told him he was going and then here are a few things we did: 1) Took him to visit his new school (school tour) 2) Took him to spend a morning in his new school - this was great as he got ...

Re: Children’s entertainer needed for party

You could try Arty Party.

I haven't hired them for a party before but my kid does the Arty Party after school club and he loves it. His teachers are lovely.

Re: Child's party venue

If you just need a big space and a kitchen, check out the Battersea Scout Centre. I've done three birthday parties there now. It's easy to book, there is plenty of room and a kitchen. You have the whole facility to yourself. It's not fancy, just a hall. You tidy up when you leave and you get your de...

Re: Should curtains be this expensive?

I had a good experience with John Lewis. They are not cheap but I had good customer service. My curtains arrived later than anticipated, then when they did arrive, the fitter told me, there was a tiny bit more fabric than there should be (it was hardly noticeable). Anyway, because of this, I got £50...
