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 ...

Re: NEWTON PREP 2019

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. https://artyparty.co.uk/parties

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...

Re: Not feeling good enough for husband's family

First of all. Remember, we are living in a bubble. Nappy Valley is a gorgeous place to live, but there's this immense pressure to go to private school, have a side return and a nice big car... You are living in that and then on top of that, you have your in laws who are well off. Maybe, just maybe, ...

Re: Baby's first Haircut

Trotters on Northcote Road give you a lock of hair with a certificate for baby's first haircut. (At least they did for my son 7 years ago but they are very likely to still do it).

Re: Police search for missing man from mental health facility

Be vigilant. A local resident saw an individual on Webbs Road the night before last (who she has identified as him). He was naked and shouting. She couldn't make out what he said as she turned and ran. He got into a Zip van and drove off. She has reported the incident to the police.

Re: What Does a Hairstyle Tell You?

I think you should let your kid have long hair if he wants it. My only criteria for my sons would be that it has to be tidy at school. So if it's really long then he has to tie it back in a band and as the last poster says, if he can't see, then trim the fringe or tie it back. If your son is willing...
