Re: Where do people dispose of their lightbulbs?

RecoLight have low energy light bulb recycling points but round our neck of the woods they're only at the main council recycling centres, which is absolutely no use at all for those of us who don't drive. Shops are more than happy to sell us this stuff but not to do their bit and collect it. No wond...

Entertainers wanted

Hi all Our residents' association in Sydenham holds a summer party in June and we're always on the lookout for musicians, jugglers, magicians and so on to provide entertainment during the course of the afternoon.

Re: Changing the speed limit

As a pedestrian in London, I'd appreciate a 10mph limit and speed cameras on every junction.

Re: Central Heating Recommendation

I'd recommend LMS Gas Services. Just finished with us and were brilliant.

Our neighbours went with Boilers R Us and are thoroughly regretting it...
