I've had a few items of clothing altered and re modelled by Carolyn at http://barnessewingroom.com and she's fantastic - prices are also great too and not at all as expensive as I was expecting for the location. 😀

I can also recommend TNS on corner of East Hill and Alma Road; easy to access, close bus stop or pay and display parking on Alma road, Dempster Road.

Thanks for that David. Not only informative but good points made. The only thing that is surprising, however, is that one of the three Fairfield ruling-party councillors voted against, but then it is in his back yard, so to speak.
Almuth T
This is really sickening - I'm sure the decision decision does not reflect the wishes of the local residents. Why would it? A hideous big eyesore. If it isn't about the revenue this will bring into the council's coffers what would speak for it?
