Does anybody need any furniture? I was in the process of dismantling it all before taking it to the dump where it will unfortunately go to landfill. The local house clearance companies advised me that second hand furniture merchants don't want the ... [ more ]
Hi Ania, just wondering if you still have any of the items please. Will be interested in the ones that are yet to be taken. Please advise, thanks.

I saw about 10-15 green parakeets roosting in a big tree on Trinity Road, yesterday evening. Have they moved into the area?
I guess they have to be awake for this? “The owls appear to have adopted a simple but effective method of hunting parakeets. Perched in the top of a tall tree, waiting for potential prey to arrive in a neighbouring tree at a lower level, the owl ... [ more ]
Citizen that said, some birds are safe from Owls. Like the Grandicrocavis viasesamensis

Having newly installed bus stops facing different directions is daft. So many are sited in the middle of the pavement and facing away from traffic, contrary to common sense. I have managed to get one of my local bus stops changed but TfL are ... [ more ]
And all without electronic indicators. Seems they're replacing some perfectly good ones - and well you may ask - why? Letters to new Mayor please!
The former Tooting MP and London Mayor, understand this issue well, as his dad was a Bus Driver. Good idea to write to him or have a petition for TFL consistency in bus stops/ shelters.
