Re: Parliamentary Election Hustings

Re: Parliamentary Election Hustings - 24th April

Does anybody know if we need tickets to attend today's 38 Degrees' Hustings in Honor Oak? I don't want to miss it but I have the feeling the place will be mobbed so I wonder if I will be wasting my time as will be travelling on public transport?

Re: NEW CAKE SHOP IN SYDENHAM opening soon

As a customer and an ex business owner I do know that its internal "warmth" is indeed crucial but that people will only experience it if they are motivated to come through the door in the first place: by the good design, or humour, or originality of the frontage and window displays. Surely business ...

Absolutely agree with that Rachael has written re getting a general builder: that's exactly what we did when we moved here but there again we already knew one I trusted implicitly.

And so easy to do... Fi...

Re: Where the chuff does one start with a new kitchen?

According to "Results based on a survey of 3,346 Which? Connect members carried out in January 2013" Ikea kitchens have come out as the best value of them all, just above John Lewis and vastly superior to Howdens, B&Q, Homebase etc. And some of them are just beautiful.
