Re: Anyone know what's going on with Everyone Bikes?

Windows now painted over, so looks like they're gone for good. What a pity -- very surprising too, as less than a month ago they were advertising for a new bike mechanic to join them.

Re: Bullying at local school

Haven’t experienced any bullying at Honeywell (Infants), although my children are relatively young.

Which year is this happening in? What kind of bullying is it, physical or verbal?

And yes, the school will take it very seriously, so address it ASAP. Good luck!

Re: Anyone know what's going on with Everyone Bikes?

There is a proposal at Companies House for them to be struck off: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07985628

I hope they re-open, as it was such a friendly and welcoming place, and very conveniently located.

Tickets are only available for parents at the consortium of private schools

And Honeywell school too, this year, for the first time.

Battersea Park fireworks are significantly cheaper though (£10 for adults and free for kids, vs. £15 for both adults and kids).

Re: What DO we want on Northcote Road???

Starbucks has closed (permanently), apparently in 20 years they only managed to make a profit once.

Re: What DO we want on Northcote Road???

Finally went to Manifesto tonight.

The pizza was amazing, really miles ahead of anywhere else.

Unfortunately the place was virtually deserted, its decor is stark anyway, but with nobody there it really didn’t feel very welcoming.

Has anybody been to Manifesto, the new pizzeria where Park Road Kitchen used to be? Any good?

Proper as in Greggs? Or proper as in not Gails over priced (but lovely) stuff?

Not sure Greggs counts as a “proper” bakery in my books...

It’s a branch of a Cornwall bakers, so they do lovely pasties as well as bread, pastries, cakes, quiches etc.

Friendly service and fair prices too.

There’s now a proper bakery on Northcote Road!

Warren’s Bakery at 91 Northcote Road has opened over the Summer, and it looks like a nice addition to the area.

I'm afraid the football will not be shown on the big screen.
What a strange decision. I asked the organisers why, and didn’t get any explanation. Licensing cost maybe?

Seems like a wasted opportunity to me.

Re: How did you manage to enroll your child for swimming lessons at Latchmere or Clapahm Leisure Center?

With Latchmere you now apparently have to attend an assessment, which is held on Saturdays -- reception should have a list of available slots. You will then be offered a space in a suitable class. Alternatively/additionally, you can email the swim coordinator, Kimberley, on KimberleyMiller@pfpleisur...

Re: Bunk beds

For younger kids IKEA's Tuffing bunk bed is great -- the top bunk is lower than usual, making climbing in and out safer.

It's not particularly stylish, but sturdy and cheap.
