Travellers/Gypsies on Clapham Common

Walking back home from Clapham South tube this afternoon I noticed that a large camp of travellers in caravans and the like have set up on the bit of Clapham Common opposite Oliver House school.

My husband uses http://www.designandalter.com in Battersea for all his suits and there is always a bride there when we've been having their wedding dress altered. Worth a consultation!

Re: Wellington School admints gender equality issues

This is not new news.

I went to a coeducational boarding school, I left 12 years ago, and we naturally segregated based on gender at mealtimes.

Re: local celebrities

We saw Jamie Roberts eating at Bills on Northcote Road a few weeks ago, makes sense as he has just been signed by Harlequins - cracking eye candy!

Re: Valuing Jewellery

I've always taken mine to F Hinds on St John's Road, they send it off though it's not done onsite. Takes a couple of weeks.

It's all done under the Guild of Valuers and Jewellers - http://www.gvj.org.uk.

I've always been happy with them.
