Change to Streetlife

Joanna M
in Wimbledon
Has anyone else had a message to say that Streetlife is merging with Nextdoor which is a simular site. They are requesting to click a link to merge the account profile and add a new password. Not sure if it is a scam or real.
I could not verify by phone either.  I hope all the previous conversations and recommendations etc. will be transferred over.

Please stay in contact with me, if you want -when Streetlife is no longer...

in Upper Tooting
I will try to save my inbox of PM's as these do not transfer to NextDoor but  often I don't have your own email address. So just asking that you send me a brief PM with your email contact.  We may no longer be 'neighbours' on the new forum.

Car body repairs recommendations

Julie K

Last week someone clipped the front of my car while it was parked in a quiet street. I didn't see them and there's no cctv available. Some of the paintwork is almost down to metal and there is a bit of creasing as it's on a join. I don't want to ... [ more ]

Hi All I was wondering if there are any local walking groups that meet regularly on the weekends?  My walking friend is leaving this summer so now I want to get my partner motivated to do them too! Thanks Liz

A professional curtain maker recommended Web Blinds to me and I am very happy with the 2 Roman blinds I have ordered from them.  ( both with black-out lining) and not much more than a standard roller blind from John Lewis  ( approx. £90 each  )
