Re: Dangerous junction outside Chestnut Grove Academy, Balham

The Nightingale councillors (Cllrs Sarah McDermott, Ian Hart and Richard Field) are well aware of the issues students face at they come and go to Chestnut Grove Academy. It is a congested area from the High Road/tube/train and has to be shared with local residents who need to drive and local busines...

Re: URGENT -Extension to Phone mast on 149 Nightingale Lane near Wandsworth Common

We Nightingale councillors are on the case. We are putting out leaflets alerting local residents to the application and posting on Twitter and Facebook. We had a meeting a couple of years ago to agree an alternative site adjacent to the railway bridge so we are surprised that the application is back...

Re: Petition to inprove road safety outside Chestnut Grove School...

'The Parsley Song' - We will go ahead with the Speedwatch on 28 March as we have to compete for sessions with other wards and don't want to let this one go. But your point is well made and we will organise another one at another time too. The police will be monitoring speed but we will also be able ...

Re: Petition to inprove road safety outside Chestnut Grove School...

Yes, Nightingale councillors have organised a Community Speedwatch with PC Howe (who is in charge of Speedwatch across the borough) for Wednesday 28 March 3-4.30pm. We have to compete for dates - but Nightingale does pretty well on getting in first for many dates. We are on the case with finding out...

Re: Wandsworth plans fines of up to £500 for climbing trees, flying kites or playing cricket in parks

I am a great believer in plenty of outdoor play for children doing all those things that challenge them and teach them how to deal with risks - climbing trees being one of them. Of course Wandsworth Council is not going to stop these wonderful childhood pursuits. As lead member for children's servic...

Let's Clean Up Balham Bridge

The netting on Balham Bridge has been allowed to fall into disrepair and means pigeon mess is becoming a problem on the pavements below. Fixing the netting is a small thing, but would make walking under the bridge more pleasant and safer. In addition, unsightly graffiti has increased on the railway ...

Re: Petition to stop trees being cut in Tooting Common

Brief petition headings and the Standard headline really catch attention not surprisingly! In fact, the decision had support from local councillors both Labour & Conservative. A difficult decision but these trees are H&S risk (several have fallen dangerously over the winter) and many are nearing the...

Re: Health Hazard on Balham High Road

Glad to see local residents taking up their cudgels. As a resident of Balham Park Rd and the local Nightingale ward councillor, I have already been in touch with TfL - but with the ammunition of the horrific health hazard report we should be able to get something done a lot more quickly. Can I sugge...

Re: Trinity St Mary Balham

Trinity St Mary's is a hidden gem of a school, but then I have to declare an interest. I have been a governor at TSM for over 10 year, all my 3 children attended (now 6th form and uni) and it is just down the road. The new headteacher has got off to a cracking good start, morale is high and 'things ...
