Does anyone know what happened outside Chestnut Grove School in Balham on Wednesday? The shop keeper said there was a young man being treated by the paramedics.

If the conditions are more *difficult* in Tooting, they could still go ahead as the increased cost would be covered by not having to dig on wandsworth common, and they persevered with the same conditions at Farringdon so why not here to stick with the ... [ more ]
wherever they do decide to dig, it's going to be a traffic nightmare for years to come..... and i can't imagine the log-jam when all the people using Crossrail 2 decide to get on the tube at either Tooting Broadway or Balham.....

Hello, can anyone give me a few tips on removing fine scratches from stainless steel mosaic kitchen tiles? I stupidly cleaned them with an abrasive sponge which has left scores on the tiles!
Hi you could try and use bicarbonate of soda with a little water on a soft cloth. Rinse it off dry and buff it up with a bit of flour. Odd I know but it works try it on your draining board or so k to see the result.magic

Give it to a charity shop if nobody comes forward

Looking for someone reliable, Gas registered, not a rip off, who can fix an old but good gas boiler in the Earlsfield area. Any recommendations?
Thanks folks, I think we're sorted now!
Have just had Evans and Graham from Sutton to fix my 14 year old boiler and now it is going like the clappers. He must have worked some kind of magic on it as it has not worked so well in ages. They work up here all the time and it is no fix, no fee.
