Electric Piano Sought

Hi, I am trying to learn the piano this year, and have just signed up to and started an online course. However, I am currently doing the exercises on my touchscreen keyboard, which is proving quite tricky!! Not knowing a huge amount about electronic ... [ more ]

I started learning this year and rented a brand new Yamaha keyboard with properly weighted keys to get an experience as close to a piano as possible without buying one. This allows you to think about the kind of instrument you want and what your ... [ more ]

Wondering if anyone could recommend a knowledgeable individual or merchant that I could call to get a genuine valuation of these items many thanks John 07956103192

Christopher E in South Kensington
Hi, my wife needs shoe repair on a nice pair of high heels - need a recommendation. Anyone have a good experience in the area?

I have to admit that the said pink shoe repair shop has always done an amazing job for me - from Jimmy Choos to Louboutins, they always took great care. Sorry to head about your bad experience, but I've been a very happy client there for many years.

Part time work required

Stephanie G

Hello fellow streetlifers, I am looking for some part time work (preferably paid!), say 2/3 days per week. I left my full time job in the City 5 years ago, and my forte is property/finance/sales. Would love, for example, to help someone with their ... [ more ]

We have a solid wood white wardrobe that we are happy to give away due to a house move. It's a standard size wardrobe about a metre wide. It's in a good state but to be honest not premium quality (bought two years ago for £200). It has no scratches or ... [ more ]

Hi, I know there have been several posts in past regarding this so apologies for starting afresh. I am a VERY nervous dental patient. Sweating, shaking, general irrational fear!! A few months ago I went to a private dentist in Wandsworth Town but ... [ more ]
Natalia E
My dentist is specialised in nervous patients (I'm one of them) and she's amazing - she's extremely patient, takes things very slowly, explaining each step in advance, and even show in the mirror what she's going to do before she does it. She stops ... [ more ]

Putney River Boat Service

Molly B
in Fulham
I wonder if we had enough interest we could get a proper river boat service from Putney Bridge to the City. Any others out there that would use it?
Natalia E
That would be great indeed, adn I know lots of people who would use it. There is a river taxi service that goes from Putney bridge to Blackfriars that I use sometimes but it takes much longer than the tube because they stop a lot in between, but if ... [ more ]
