Earlsfield Ward Election

Paul W in Earlsfield
Thank you for all those who showed so much faith in local Earlsfield Labour Party candidate Rachael Stokes, to elect her to Wandsworth Borough council in Thurday's local Government election. She added 1,000 votes (120% increase) on the last comparable ... [ more ]
Really?  From what I heard, nobody ever saw Rachel Stokes, just the Vicar and the other one. It seems to me that Ms Stokes benefited from the fact that the third Conservative is Indian and consequently got significantly fewer votes than the other ... [ more ]

Alan P in Upper Tooting

Clapham Common Rock Gigs

Bonnie H in Balham
Something that is bothering me a lot - that summer gigs on Clapham Common are a done deal now...  The common is in bad enough shape after the Snowboarding dome but that's nothing to what it will be like when Live Nation takes it over for rock gigs. It ... [ more ]
Bonnie - it's in the name!  Common: for common usage.  It's not a park where you stroll, look at the plants, feed the ducks etc. Stop whinging.  If you don't like it, move away from the Common.

Rubbish collection missed week

Jane G in Battersea
Does anyone know why the rubbish was not collected last Wednesday 6 th Nov? Just off Battersea Rise area.
......because you put your rubbish out too late?  I only say that because no-one else has complained in the last six days!

Freeze that bill!

Rachael S in Earlsfield
Are you angry that your energy bills are continuing to rise while energy costs are falling? Ed Milliband is calling on the government to place a cap on bills so that people can afford to heat their homes this winter. If you would like to support the ... [ more ]
Oh, come on Rachael S.  You, and the Labour Party are having a laugh! This is the same Ed Millliliband who was Energy  (and Climate Change) Secretary for at least three years before he became the Leader of the Labour Party. He was the Energy Secretary ... [ more ]

Junk Mail

Sue S in Balham
I have a  'No Junk Mail' sticker on my letterbox, and a couple of times recently I have opened my front door to find some junk mail  casually dropped onto my DOORMAT. I have solved the problem of junk mail delivered by Royal Mail.   I didn't ask them to ... [ more ]
Do what I do with the Pizza leaflets etc.  Find out their address and post the leaflet back with a little note saying "No junk mail" stickers on the door really do mean "NO JUNK MAIL HERE" and add your postcode. Then pop the offending leaflet and note ... [ more ]

Protest Against Wandsworth One O'Clock Club Closures

to , (ended)
Wandsworth Town Hall
Alex S in Battersea
Wandsworth Council is going to close the Bolingbroke, Windmill, Coronation Gardens, King George's Park, Fontley Way and Battersea Park One O'Clock Clubs this September. These clubs are a lifeline for many local parents and young children.  There is ... [ more ]
From what I've heard, you're all wrong.  Not One O’clock centre is closing but how they all operate is going to change so as to make better use of the facilities.  Surely that's a win-win?

Parking metres

Ann-Marie D in Balham
Last week weds I was awoken by drilling. Looking out out the window I saw a man drilling into the side of the parking metre and using a tube to remove the money then putting a sticker over the top. I got a very good look at him. Since then every day I've ... [ more ]
Unbelievable! You're telling us that you witnessed a crime and never rang the Police?  That is just what 999 is for - to catch criminals in the act. Do you really think that posting on Streetlife is going to help the Council keep hold of the stolen ... [ more ]

Wandsworth Enforcement - Just how bad does it have to get before you act?

Simon F in Colliers Wood
This is a photo taken this morning at 9.15.   Rather than let Fountains collect it and destroy evidence send someone down to investigate now and DO something! What was the result of last weeks 'investigation'?
Am I missing something here?   Wandsworth Council "offers" a reactive service in that it will collect the mess left by thoughtless, selfish people - surely it is these people who should be the target of your anger, not the so-and-sos doing the ... [ more ]
Sorry, that should have read "...your anger, not Wandsworth Council who are trying to keep the streets and open spaces clean and clear."

Fabulous news, at last!

A-Kay in Earlsfield
Walking past the old Grid Inn in Southfields the other day, I noticed the Tesco shopfitters working hard to convert the premises into a shiny new supermarket to cater to all the hard-pressed mothers in Southfields.   Can't wait for it to open - see you ... [ more ]

leader's visit to Roehampton

Anne K in Kingston Vale
I was sorry to learn from the talk on Ist March 2012 that the leader had been allegedly twice to Roehampton.  I did not see this advertised and wondered if anyone else did.  If so, where? I dont believe he came to Roehampton at all

25% to 100%+ rise in Wandsworth resident parking charges - disgraceful!

Tracey R in Balham
I've just received a letter from the council as my parking permit is getting close to its renewal date. I am absolutely horrified at the huge jump in the cost! How can the council justify such increases in tough economic times? [Motorists are being hit ... [ more ]
What a pity Leonie C. forgot to tell everyone that SHE is a Councillor, too - she represents Labour. What's the phrase.....? Economical with the truth?

Wandsworth Council to evict tenants unemployed for more than two years

Colin D in Wandsworth
I would be interested to know peoples views on the council taking part in this scheme to evict tenants who have been unemployed for two years or more. Is this the tip of the iceberg of social cleansing? Or justifiable stance to make people less dependent ... [ more ]
That they are unemployed is bad enough.  But for the rest of us, we are paying them to be idle/look for work.  And then we have to pay the subsidised rent on their homes as well, for two years or more....? Give us a break,  The Council is doing the right ... [ more ]

Tescos has bought The Grid Inn, Southfields!!

Geri in Summerstown
Whoa!  Hang on a minute.  I am a firm believer in the old adage "Use it, or lose it!".  It is all very well bemoaning the fact that a national chain has moved in somewhere in Southfields, or bemoaning that a pub no-one wanted to use has closed down - it ... [ more ]

Found Oystercard

Davide in Wandsworth
Found last night @ 1am an Oystercard on Wandsworth Common West Side, very close to the trafficlight Trinity Road / Huguenot Place. If you think it might be yours please get in touch with some details about it so to prove you're the owner. Cheers. ... [ more ]
Rather than just "hope" that somone reads this particular website, why don't you do what is says on the back of the Oyster card: "If found, please take this card to the nearest tube staion booking office or post to London Transport at 55 Broadway, SW1" ... [ more ]
"I'll keep the one I found for a while and eventually I'll destroy it" If you post it to Oyster card Services at 55 Broadway, SW1H 0BD (as it says on the back of the Oyster Card) it'll get back to the owner - that way you won't have to wait to destroy ... [ more ]
