Re: Best of luck to Prince George and other pupils starting school this week!

yes it does read a bit like a sponsored ad.

i don't think the teacher is bowing, just bending down to his level.

Re: Honest feedback on Balham for a family?

SLD - I'm in the Hyde Farm area - so a 3 bed place on the roads near Henry Cavendish (Haverhill, Scholars, Pentney, Hydethorpe) are all nudging or in excess of £1million.

Don't forget Telferscot School. Houses around the Telford Park area are lovely and tend to be a big cheaper

Re: Honest feedback on Balham for a family?

You are right on top of the school there - so there's going to be a lot of noise from there. Plus Cavendish Road is a very busy road. I also think there might be some trade warehouses behind - so again, potential lorry noise. Its prob why the house hasn't sold and has got to come down in price. On t...

Re: Gestational surrogacy

Have a look at Natalie Gamble's website. She's a lawyer specialising in fertility issues. Surrogacy can be a very murky business in the UK

Re: Leaving work notice period

Will you be looking for work at your new location and will you need your current employer to give you a reference?

The reality is they can't do anything to stop you leaving when you want. They might withhold holiday pay

Re: Beware-moped muggings in SW area.

The 'restrictions' being mentioned here are in reference to the moped thieves knowing how to stop any police in pursuit. If they remove their helmets the police are not allowed to give chase and must immediately stand down. The thieves know this, and exploit it. Seems crazy. And as a result the numb...

Re: Talk to me about commuting from Balham

I commute to Victoria a lot. When Southern are not striking the trains run well and, at peak times, there's one every 2-3 minutes. They're busy but not as busy as the tube is at that time. A lot of those on board get off at Clapham Junction so second half of journey is less packed. Worth pointing ou...

Re: Meter reading error - how cross to get?

'it almost cost me a lot of money.'

But it didn't.

The company picked up on the mistake and it's been sorted. I can't see that there's any further action needed.

One for the Balham folk - Cliff the postman

Has made it into the Independent's 'happy list' 2017 - comprised of people who make life better for others. Well deserved, he's a lovely man. Many a time I've run into him on my way to work feeling glum and he's put a smile on my face. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/the-independents-happy-l...

Re: Screaming child in back garden

Yes, quite right, 'parents' and not 'mother'

The OP suggests the child was screaming in the garden all day. So, yes, I would expect the parents to take the kid inside.

Re: Screaming child in back garden

Hi Sheds

Wasn't really singling out any one response, rather the whole overall tone that smacked of the poster being unreasonable for not wanting her peace disturbed day in, day out.

Re: Screaming child in back garden

I'm surprised at some of the replies on here and the suggestion that the original poster just has to suck it up. Yes, of course, all reasonable people know that babies cry and that children can be noisy and that's life. But, from what the poster has said, it does sound as if this crosses the line of...

Re: Ikea furniture assembly

Any of the handyman services will do this for you.

I have used Silver Saints a lot and have always found them very good - they def do flat pack/furniture assembly.

Re: Donations for the Grenfell Tower Fire

Donations of clothes/shoes/toys are now being turned away from centres as they have nowhere to store them.

So if anybody wants to help then a cash donation is the best option

Re: Donations for the Grenfell Tower Fire

It's lovely that people want to help but I think it's very unlikely that they need further clothing donations. There's mountains of stuff at various collection centres now
