reliable cleaner in Sydenham

Hello,

Is anyone able to recommend a cleaner in the local area? We are looking for someone who is able to come in for a couple of hours every 2 weeks or so.

Many thanks

Zumba classes?

Hello!

I'd really like to find a zumba class, does anyone know of one locally? I have looked at the Bridge, LA Fitness and Crystal Palace sports centre but no luck. or any other suggestions of 'fun' evening fitness classes?

Thank-you!

Re: WHAT IF no 13: BILLINGS Fishmongers & butchers

SO PLEASED to have our own fishmongers, we always walk into Beckenham for our fresh fish but they have funny opening hours! I grew up nr. Brixham in Devon so had always had lovely fresh fish and have really missed it since moving to London. I think the shop looks fab- such a bonus for Sydenham, load...

oh no, such a shame that they have gone! the meat was excellent quality and great value- I was going to go this weekend to see if they had any venison in. Such a shame, i can't bear Sainsburys and don't want to be ripped off at William Rose. Will have to try the one in Penge.

Avoid Kwik Fit- we had our wheels balanced there, and were on the motorway when we started experiencing vibration through the wheel again- had to take it to another garage at our destination and they pointed out what a shoddy job kwik fit had done. Would never go back there, and it certainly wasn't ...

The AA man said that a belt had snapped, and may well have irreparably damaged the engine (although he couldn't tell just from a quick diagnosis). Certainly not meaning to slight local garages by taking the car to Farnham, it would just mean that a family member could ensure that we were given the b...

Thanks for your comments- jsut to elaborate- the reason we need to get it to Farnham is that my partner's Uncle there is a mechanic, so will let us know what the damage is (AA man told us it would need a new engine), then if it's too expensive to fix he will sell it for us. The AA will only tow once...
