The site has been sold for £56million. If the mayor approves the scheme on Thursday, Homebase will be gone by the new year and replaced by several towers - the highest of which is equivalent to 23 stories.
Fiona M, click on the PDF in Christian S's post. It tells you what is being proposed. Yes, Homebase being got rid of to build high rise flats).
It seems a lot quieter to me, with the exception of yesterday evening, about 10 loonies on high powered bikes roared through the one way system in excess of 60mph. Time for speed cameras at this end of Trinity Road, I think!.
I think its only working as its summer holidays as in the few before they started, and the roadworks had begun traffic was terrible! Backing up down Burntwood lane, Beechcroft road and all the side roads. Personally I'm hoping they finish early before ... [ more ]
Hi Kate, This looks great! You say there are things for younger children to do. My little boy is only two. Would there be something there for him or is that too young? Many thanks, Gail
Hmm two is quite young...he could get his face painted...watch the animals..but I would not want you to make a special trip. It is £1 but it really for slightly older children and you may find that it is not for him this year. If you are in the area ... [ more ]

One of the biggest issues here really is that of light. The plans and computer generated images of the proposed buildings suggest that they will be much more attractive than the Homebase building and car park, and thus enhance the appearance of that part ... [ more ]
What will happen to the trees?
Following on: I have had CD problems with several combined players. It seems to be the first thing that fails. They're generally not economically repairable, alas.
You can get a new CD player with radio for less than £30 new, half that if bought second hand on Ebay. Unless you find a technician that wants to do you a favour I don't see how they can charge you much less than that for a repair.

Michele K: Bravo!
I agree with Michele. The reasons offered are very daft. What a waste of money. This money should be used on projects that are really needed e.g. libraries, youth groups etc. I use the road virtually every day. If the road is closed then I can see ... [ more ]
Any of these boxes still available. ?
We have some of our boxes ready. Do you know how many you would need Marina? Amanda, you are more than welcome to take the ones that are left. How many would you need? Between Geraud and myself we might be able to sort out the both of you.
Happy to quote. I am a local gardener. I can provide references if required. 07780 993939.
Sounds like you need Mark the Hedgehunter. I got him from a recommendation on Streetlife and was very impressed . He managed to cut back our very tall and neglected privet hedge and took all the cuttings away for a good price. His number is 07899 778 279.
I didn't know it either. I shall make a note of the date. Address? Mary
I do not like photos. Sorry. Mary A

There is a piece in the Sunday Telegraph about Southwark Council refusing to allow the FT building to be developed into flats now that the FT has been bought by Nikkei (but the building has been retained by Pearson). This topic has moved up the agenda as ... [ more ]
The FB pages are open to local mums to join - it's primarily the SW19 Mums page that people sell on, it's really good - lots of mums selling to each other - there are loads of members. It's free to post things for sale too, it's fab!

We also had a huge moth problem and have spent quite a bit getting rid of the pesky insects! Apart from removing the carpet in our hall (where lots of them lived, in the dark alcoves under the coat racks) and replacing it with wooden floor boards, we ... [ more ]
Thanks for all the advice. Very useful. I feel I have used or am using every anti moth treatment known to man. I've never heard of anybody actually getting rid of them completely so I guess once they arrive you are stuck with them. I will look into some ... [ more ]
I'm pleased to see that Jane E is a co-signatory and can hopefully help to bring these concerns to our Mayor. I'd also like to see our council leader defend the planning decision.
Sc m thank you! I believe we have some help.....but there will be plenty to,do! The wonderful man with his animals will be there every day. Street athletics is on Wednesday. The,hire rope and climbing wall as always. Judo, booking, circus skills, ... [ more ]
Sorry re-read my post hire should be high and booking should be boxing!
I second the recommendation for floors for thought
No not floors for thought Battersea Rise. I went in there for advice and was wanting a quote . The man couldn't even be bothered to get out of his chair. He was so unprofessional it was unreal. Another company I went to was on Garratt Lane, on the ... [ more ]

Hi Joy Thank you but I need it in Southfields and more permanent and very close to tube station But thank you so much Pina
Train do you send me your number. I think you may need someone to certify copies of your passport etc which I am happy to do for any streetlifer.
But Sarah is absolutely right, if it is about filling in sales enquiries forms, your estate agent should help you.
