Re: Primary Schools?

We used to live on Cator Road and didn't Alexandra Infants so moved house instead.... though friend just got in from the waiting list for next year. I did like the infant school though, less keen on the juniors.

Re: Parent/ baby groups

another thought... ask your HV if your doctor surgery arranges a new mums group as they used to do something down at Sydenham Green and maybe Wells Park Drs too.

Re: Parent/ baby groups

Hi Mysti77, I have sent you a private message... if you want to come along to a new mums tea locally then do let me know as I am arranging these for the NCT at the moment. Also, one of my friends has written a great article for new mums called "Sydenham on a shoestring" with covers most of the group...

worth trying http://www.architect-yourhome.com/services.asp

they do a menu based approach to using an architect so you only pay for the bits you need.....

Re: Water rates - quick question

I just got a bill for £80 a month having paid £20 a month for ages on a meter (2 adults, 2 small). I rang up to complain and they said there might be a faulty meter and they would check out. I am now back to paying £20 a month. However based on an earlier post I am going to call them again on Monday...

I have friends who use Cornerstone (Jews Walk and Trewsbury Road), Crystals Day Nursery (Venner Road) and we use Kidsunlimited which is next to New Beckenham Train Station. With regard to costs I know Kidsunlimited is at the top end as their hours are 7:30am to 6pm plus the prices have just gone up ...

So disheartening to see that only one party is representing the Sydenham area. Not exactly going to represent the range of views of the broad cross section of the local community. It's not like we've seen much progress in terms of commercial development on the high street over the past 4 years (I kn...

Don't lose hope as there is always a chance of getting another school before end of term (I know of someone this happened to last year). Also if you want to help make schools in the area better get involved and become a governor. A friend of mine is already one at this school and I know last year th...

thanks multisync for the warning.... have you reported them to environmental health yet... sounds like they need to be.

And hopefully they get shut down and we have one less disgusting fried chicken place.

Stolen Window Box

Yesterday afternoon some strange individual took great pleasure in stealing one of our window boxes (from the front drive in broad daylight!). It was an old Bollinger box (Jeroboam size) and has huge sentimental value as C bought it for me on our wedding day. It left the scene full of earth and love...
