Re: Kidz Smile Bouncy Castle - DO NOT USE!!!

Probably should have done the research *before* you took over the management of the business.

Re: Part time annual leave calculation-HELP

If you didn't want to take the Bank Holiday (Monday) out of your overall holiday allowance on a particular occasion you could ask your employer if you could work an alternative (additional) day on that week. That way you could save the allowance for a time that is more convenient for you. Of course,...

Re: Balham school must change admissions policy after parent's complaint

For those of you having an opinion on this issue (discriminatory admissions policies) I suggest you contact your local MP, as that's really the only way that change will occur.

Re: Balham school must change admissions policy after parent's complaint

I don’t think it will be long until there will be a legal challenge/judicial review to stop state schools being allowed to select on religious grounds on the basis that it’s discriminatory and unfair to the very many who are not religious or of a different religion. While I think you are correct on...

Re: Balham school must change admissions policy after parent's complaint

FGM has only recently moved out of the " let's not interfere with cultural practices" bracket only thanks t lobbying from females who have suffered and some politicians who have common sense to recognise it as abuse. So it's a fair comment by the other poster in my opinion. FGM has been illegal in ...

Re: Estate agent fees - selling

We paid 1% a couple of years ago with a Bellevue Road estate agent - remember to add vat to all these figures, not sure why they don’t include vat in the % as we all have to pay it :roll: It is probably illegal to advertise services to consumers, and then add VAT on top of what you are quoting. You...

Re: Balham school must change admissions policy after parent's complaint

I do wonder if the authorities would challenge them if it was a muslim school though Why do you think it would be any different? There was a recently reported case of Ofsted taking action against an Islamic school for teaching boys and girls separately. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingh...

Re: Queenstown rd reduction in trains - consultation

Not to divert the thread, but more to the point is the lack of trains from Battersea Park in the direction of Wandsworth Road. And no through trains to/from Victoria from Wandsworth Road. It used to be that you could get trains into South East London from Battersea Park, a few went round to London B...

Re: Balham school must change admissions policy after parent's complaint

I don’t understand why it can’t have its own admissions policy, If they are successful then let the school continue with its successful policies. this is a question not a statement! I do wonder if the authorities would challenge them if it was a muslin school though Because it is a service funded b...

Re: Did you vote tactically for labour in Battersea, as best chance to avert Brexit? Fancy meeting to pressure our MP?

Anyway, Brexit is never really going to happen. As they go along they are watering it down more and more. The latest wheeze being that we can just be members of EFTA, and not be subject to the rulings of the ECJ, but we will be subject to the rules of the EFTA court, that follows all the decisions o...

Re: Did you vote tactically for labour in Battersea, as best chance to avert Brexit? Fancy meeting to pressure our MP?

GuyD73: my first point was simply that there were so many other issues which were also important in the election. If people voted merely on the one issue this could lead us into all sorts of problems - in fact we are seeing that. We have a mess with Brexit but we are also seeing increasing mess in ...

Re: Leander swimming club trials

You mean the video? I took that to mean the standard they were working towards. The age range they are looking at points to their squads, or presquad though.

Leander swimming club trials

Leander swimming club are holding trials for 8-9 year olds to enter the club. It's not really clear to me whether they are looking to recruit swimmers for their squads, or for the academy - but they are trying to expand the club to be able to compete with some of the biggest clubs in the region.
