What has happened to all the benches on Wandsworth Common?  So many have disappeared since 1978, when they were plentiful, which was when I first moved here. Please bring back the benches!

Party Wall Surveyor in Wimbledon

Alex R in Wimbledon
Has anyone got any recommendations for a Party Wall Surveyor in Wimbledon area. Our neighbours have suggested using theirs but I think it would be better if we instructed someone who is independent.
