Hi everyoneI went to a friend's wedding this weekend and wanted to share for any bride and grooms to be who might have been out-priced of London. It has to be one of the most gorgeous wedding venues in kent. Wish I'd known about it for my own wedding! http://theorangerymaidstone.com/weddings/

I was shocked to see tonight's B.B.C. 6.00 p.m news. Mr Nichols was asked by reporter Martin Bashir regarding the E.U. crisis, "What is the Christian and Biblical response to this crisis."Mr Nichols replied, "It goes back to the very fundamental question posed by God [to Cain after he had murdered his brother Abel] "Are you not your brothers keeper."Genesis 4v9 actually reports that after God had asked Cain, "What have you done with your brother" it was Cain who stated, "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper." According to the news report Mr Nichols credits God for uttering words that were uttered by the murderous Cain.

The often declared intention to operate openly and transparently has fallen on deaf ears as far as Prue Whyte, Charman of Wimbledon and Putney Common Conservators is concerned. Does this matter? Is this just me having another so-called "rant"? No, this time the standard of governance has fallen to such a low level that all 60,000+ Council Tax payers need to be very worried indeed.A year ago the Charity Commission imposed a formal action plan. The most important element of that plan was to establish whether a loss had occurred through a 'Qualified Surveyors Report' (QSR) when they sold the access rights at Putney Hospital. A subject that has been discussed here for over three years.So what has changed? This time the board of Trustees have decided to spend over £60,000 on a second unnecessary QSR, without discussing the existing one they commissioned from Montagu Evans LLP. The one that ME offered to review in the light of any additional information the Conservators might provide. The one that their own lawyers said could be considered. Ignored? Completely. This means that the loss-making WPCC Trustees are quite happy to waste yet more money to avoid facing up to their earlier mistakes. Mistakes we as so-called "Levy-payers" have to accept.So, no explanation of why they are acting like this. No reaction to the 150+ people who have signed the FofPC petition, just pretence that everything is alright. Just refer everything to their lawyers. Call no 'Open Meetings' as they promised. Keep the governance of the charity under wraps. People will just get bored and drop the subject, after all what's another £60,000 for the lawyers and the advisers. The much-vaunted new governance processes have been suspended, and how the tax-funded charity is run goes from bad to worse. If they can make such a hash of this, what else is being hidden? Their procedures are now so bizarre that they issue a press statement about their special board meeting before the Trustees have seen the minutes.They lost over £1.5m. It's a year since they were told what action should be taken. The Charity Commission must appoint an interim manager now to sort this mess out. For all our sakes.Nick

Hello, Have you ever considered selling your property off-market? If so, good. Selling off-market eliminates the absurd commission rates many estate agents charge, along with the considerable amount of stress they bring upon you - and you may already have a potential buyer! Ideally, I am looking for an investment opportunity, with a budget of between £1m and £1.2m. If you feel that your property meets these specifications, please do get in touch. Christian

Dear AllWe currently live in town but plan to move to somewhere green, quiet and leafy within London to retire. I am very disappointed that Putney now seems to be off the list as my partner is very sensitive to aircraft noise. Thanks to the helpful advice on the Putney forum, I am now approaching Wimbledon residents. I like Wimbledon Village and the surrounding area and had a look around Edge Hill, for example. Looks very nice. How is the aircraft noise, if any, in the Wimbledon area? Are you able to advise on areas to look at with no aircraft noise?Many ThanksDerek

My wife had her purse, house keys and mobile lifted from her shopping trolley two days ago while in the TRAID charity shop on Shepherds Bush Green. While the CCTV clearly shows the culprits we don't hold out much hope of them ever handing over their ill gotten gains. Most likely the stuff has been dumped somewhere so if anyone finds a set of keys for example please PM me so I can check if they belong to her. The wallet/purse had various membership cards all showing her Polish surname which begins Na........ Fingers crossed someone can help.

Wall to Wall Television, the makers of hit series ‘Back In Time For Dinner’ and ‘Back In Time for the Weekend’ are looking for a fun, food-loving family to go on an adventure further back in time.Guided by the experiences of real families in the early 20th century, one family will be fast-forwarded through 50 years of incredible history to explore how we lived and what we ate.Wall to Wall are currently casting in the London area for a family to immerse themselves in history for their series. This time the family will go further back in time to the early 20th century and then on through five decades of dramatic history, experiencing for themselves how British families lived and ate in the years before modern technology and conveniences.Previous living history series Back in Time for Dinner and Back in Time for the Weekend for BBC2 were both extremely well received and were among BBC2’s top rating factual shows last year, averaging 3 million viewers a week. Both series followed a modern family as they lived through each decade from the 50s to the 90s with their home, clothes and diet all transformed accordingly. Everything they did was underpinned by historical data that detailed real spending and eating habits of each period.This is a fantastic and exciting opportunity for a family to share in the amazing experience of being filmed over the summer, taking part in a truly immersive journey back in time.Wall to Wall are currently looking to hear from families with a minimum of two children aged 8+ who are available to film over the summer holidays this year. Anyone interested can simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.Below are links to interviews with previous contributors, who came away from the series with a rewarding and truly unforgettable family experience.

So they are closing giving no reason for the closure and giving Colliers Wood as an alternative. Totally useless for me and out of the way. If Smithscarries on with closures they will totally disappear. We already have three banks in Wimbledon why another, we need useful shops or we will turn into another Morden which has charity shops galore and precious little else of any use.

I am confused as to how the AFC can say that they should get their planning permission based on the fact that they still have many fans in Merton , even though they DO NOT go to watch the games and that they also have many followers who have NEVER seen them play. How loyal and interested are these "fans". Where is the guarantee that those followers and fans will want to pay for seats to watch them play. The AFC are not the DONS and I wonder if a lot of people realise that. Let them stay where ever it is they are, we don't need them. It is not an essential for boroughs to have their own teams and I am sure we do not want to deprive the borough they are in - do we?

Dear fellow residentThe "local" developer who replaced the wonderful King of Denmark Pub on the Rigdway with the eyesore that is the Denmark Lofts is at it again, but on residential streets in the village conservation area -- on Clifton Road no less. Notwithstanding the fact that Merton's own Tall Building strategy regards developments of the scale being proposed the developer is seeking to exceed all reasonable limits and the council's stated objective to conserve and enhance the historic environment. Replacing a wonderful 1940s family home (which was looked after by an old chap who recently passed away) with 4+ storey monstrosity with a huge basement car park, removing much of the planted gardens -- huge demolition, sheet piling, huge dumper trucks and deliveries for what could be 2 years in the making. All next to the older folk who live in Rutland Lodge and Lyston House and causing huge potential risk to the young kids and parents of Kings Junior School, to name a few.BUT -- this is only the first concern because letting one in lets the next one and next one and so on. Please visit the Denmark lofts on the Ridgeway (9 units and empty restaurant, studio/office and planting that is dying or go to Kemble Hall, 24 Keswick Road, Putney – 22 flats -- on another family house plot in a similar style to what is proposed -- but at least this had the top floor flats in the roof -- that's not the plan for Clifton Road -- the roof is on top -- making this a very high building.Have no doubt that the developer wishes to break the restrictive covenant in the title deed established by Dame Julia Vertue Mansel in 1920 to keep the home at 3 Clifton Road a single dwelling; remove the existing shrubs and hedges; build apartments that will need to sell for more than 1.5-2.0m each (if there are only 4) -- this is not for the likes of most of us. BUT what is more likely -- he gets permission, then works out the selling price is too low, and seeks to convert the permission into even more units -- but "all in the envelope of the existing permission". We have all seen this before. so we end up with Denmark Lofts again or Kemble Hall -- 9 or is it 22 units rammed on top of one another. Welcome to high rise living and the complete lost Wimbledon's historic character Please do have a look at the application and submit your comments/objections to: email@example.comWith the following information1 Application reference number : 15/P27252 Your name 3 Your address 4 Planning application description DEMOLITION OF EXISTING HOUSE TO BE REPLACED WITH A FOUR STOREY BLOCK OF FLATS (4 X 2 BEDROOMS) WITH UNDERGROUND PARKING.5 Your commentsHere's the link: (http://planning.merton.gov.uk/Northgate/PlanningExplorerAA/Generic/StdDetails.aspx?PT=Planning%20Applications%20On-Line&TYPE=PL/PlanningPK.xml&PARAM0=1000089928&XSLT=/Northgate/PlanningExplorerAA/SiteFiles/Skins/Merton/xslt/PL/PLDetails.xslt&FT=Planning%20Application%20Details&PUBLIC=Y&XMLSIDE=/Northgate/PlanningExplorerAA/SiteFiles/Skins/Merton/Menus/PL.xml&DAURI=PLANNING)

I hope the idea of a new High school in Whatley avenue is totally quashed, I live in Whatley Avenue and believe me we are already squashed between Joseph Hood School and Rutlish High School. From the High School we have constant take away food litter thrown scuffles and fights everywhere,from Joseph Hood we have the parents who have to drive to drop off/pick up their children, double parking and taking up the whole of the parking places . Having said that there is and always has been a place for Joseph Hood school, especially as Merton has spent so much effort to ensure sufficient Junior School placesthat must have included the places at Joseph Hood. But we in Whatley Avenue truly would crush under the pressure of another High school, it just would not be fair on the residence. Nor on the children of Joseph Hood.

I had heard this restaurant was very good and picked up a menu with a view to booking it for dinner on our wedding anniversary. However we have decided to boycott it as there are frogs legs on the menu. Frogs are facing an extinction crisis worldwide, and the last thing they need is for their populations to be decimated in Asian countries to export their legs to the UK to eat. I read that India has already banned this export trade, and hopefully other Asian countries will follow. See:http://savethefrogs.com/threats/frog-legs/index.html

Dear SW19I have already sorted out this issue. Merton allowed the developer to fell the trees, which I asked the Council to value to which they responded £20,000. I then worked with Merton Tree Wardens and the Council to agree how the money would be spent on new trees. There will be 42 new trees from the development going East along Bushey Road until it meets Grand Drive. These include large plane trees and many others. Planting will take place next Winter.Councillor David DeanConservativesDundonald Ward

Hi can you help with the Big Advice Survey? I work at a Citizens Advice Bureaux and we are trying to understand how we deal with problems in our daily lives and where advice fits in. We're doing this through the "Big Advice Survey"It's straightforward and takes about 5 mins - basically, it's just multiple choice unless you want to add further info. We want to use the results to make decisions on how the local advice sector can improve the services we offer to the general publicIf you can help by taking the survey that would be really appreciated. You can take the survey directly from this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BigAdviceSurveyThere's a dedicated site with lots more info, here:http://bigadvicesurvey.org.ukAnd a one-minute video explaining what we're trying to do: http://youtu.be/WvjFyMvUnOMOnce again, I hope I've not broken any rules by posting this and if you can spare a few minutes to take the survey it would be really appreciated!Many thanksPatrick

- What? • It's not as tough as you might think. You don't have to pedal non-stop for 24hours, just be part of a team that keeps going around the clock (6pm- 6pm). You can get your own team together or join an existing one.• Qualified instructors will lead hour long classes back to back and pumping tunes will encourage you throughout. You have control of the resistance on your bike so you dictate how much you push yourself!• There will be plenty of food and drink to keep your energy levels up and there will be a chill out zone where you can rest and support other team mates.• Teams can be any number up to 10 cyclists. The more team mates, the less pedaling you will have to do!• The team members will decide among themselves how long each person will spin for and at what time, ensuring someone will always be on the team's bike. All teams will be asked to submit a schedule prior to the event.• The fundraising target is £500 per team. The Pedal Studio kindly sponsor the event by donating the venue and the fantastic spin instructors. This means all of your sponsorship goes straight to helping Starfish to provide shelter, education and healthcare to children orphaned or made vulnerable by AIDS in South Africa. We will help you be a star by providing lots of great fundraising tips. - When?Fri 27th - Sat 28th Feb 2015 (6pm - 6pm)- Where?Putney Pedal Studio, London- ContactEmail Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org, or register online at : http//www.starfishcharity.org/get-involved-uk/run,-cycle,-jump/24hour-spinning%C2%AE-marathon-27-28022015.aspxWe look forward to seeing you all there!

The residents of Raynesfield have fought a successful campaign and should be very proud that they have forced MOPAC to change its strategy.You quote Mr Greenhalgh as saying, "I was not happy about how they (the residents) had been treated and I was not prepared to see key workers (...) forced to move out of their homes". But it was his policy to sell off these residential properties so he, and MOPAC, are therefore responsible for how the residents have been treated. Also, the picture of Deputy Mayor Stephen Greenhalgh with Conservative Councillors Lewis-Lavender, which accompanies the article, smacks of blatant political opportunism. Cllr Gilli Lewis-Lavender spoke of the necessity of selling off Raynesfield at the Council Meeting on the 19th November. I am glad that the motion, calling on Boris Johnson and MOPAC to halt the evictions, was carried, although not one Conservative councillor supported it. So why is she in this picture? And what help has MP Stephen Hammond given? I have not found one tenant who says they were helped by him.There are still several issues that MOPAC needs to clarify:Firstly, MOPAC must allow those who were forced to move out of their flats to return to their homes. Secondly, the tenants need to be given long term security, with assured tenancies.Finally, MOPAC needs to compensate residents for van hire, storage costs, utility reconnection fees and so on. On the day before evictions were due to begin, some residents took their furniture to the tip or to charity shops; some now lack the basics, like beds and fridges. Lib Dem Assembly members, Caroline Pidgeon and Stephen Knight, will continue to put pressure on the Mayor of London and MOPAC until these points have been answered. Raynesfield residents know that I will carry on supporting them as I have done in over the last few stressful months.

I'd just like to say well done to Merton Local Authority for turning Wimbledon Broadway into Ibiza over the last 10 years.I have just witnessed yet another violent assault in the Broadway at 11.52 this evening, presently the Broadway is occupied by hundreds of drunk revellers shouting and screaming.Walking down the Broadway at night on a Friday or Saturday is like being in Ibiza. My front garden is a toilet and I have to listen to the endless booming of bass music until 3am almost every night.All my complaints get ignored, because there is no chance they are going to do anything about it.The Broadway is now just an entire rabble of drunken louts which gets worse year on year.

Posted by: Neil MilkinsDate/Time: 08/07/14 17:50:00Since May 2014 there have been nearly 22,000 hits on youtube of the Sky TV documentary Harold Jones - The Welsh Serial Killer. I am convinced that former Fulham, Puntney and Hammersmith resident Harold Jones was responsible for 8 unsolved murders in the Hammersmith district between 1959 and 1965, which includes 3 at Chiswick. The 45 minute documentary can be accessed via the Internet by googling Harold Jones - killer. Pass the word darlings! If anyone remembers Jones who also used the name Harry Stevens please contact me via the forum or at firstname.lastname@example.org Regards. Neil Milkins.

Used them two times, fine. Third time we had some very important papers to go to a Harley Street doctor - pick up was fine, but a couple of days later she was complaining nothing had shown up. On the trace log the papers had been taken to the main depot and left there. We entered an on line chat to India, who told us it could be the following week before they were delivered, wished us a nice day and ended the call. We tried them once more this week to deliver a parcel to a kiddie. You pay up front, someone was here all day Tuesday waiting for the pick up, and again all day Wednesday, nobody showed, little boy is already upset. Another on line chat to India - told us they'd have to open an investigation. What good is that to us? I asked who was going to apologise to the little lad. I was wished a nice day again, that was at about 7.00 pm last night. Not worth the hassle. Dreadful service, they've obviously got too busy to be able to cope, and they don't give a toss when you complain. Never again.

Alyson managed the project from quote to completion and was great as the main point of contact. Their team of decorators were great to deal with and Alyson was a stickler for making sure they always cleaned up and that there was a minimum amount of mess and dust affecting the rest of the house.

I'm starting up women's beginner running groups on Wimbledon Common, commencing in late June. If you've ever wanted to start running but weren't sure where to start, my groups offer a relaxed, supportive environment for beginner runners in the local area.We’ll build up slowly, with lots of run-walking initially, on the flat, scenic trails of the common, and by the end of the ten week course you’ll be able to run 5k without stopping.Whether you want to improve your general fitness, or have your sights set on running a 5k, a 10k (or maybe even a marathon one day), my groups will help you get a step closer to your goal. I’ll also be offering 5-10k groups further down the line and one-on-one coached outdoor fitness sessions, offering something a bit different to working out in a gym environment.We’ll meet at the Windmill car park on Wimbledon Common, which can be reached easily by car, on foot or by local public transport routes, and we’ll run on the beautiful trails in the surrounding area. Groups will be led by me, Cat. I’m a UK Athletics qualified run leader and a personal trainer, so can offer advice about wider issues relating to running, such as hydration and nutrition, strength and conditioning, and injury prevention.I’ll initially be holding two sessions solely for women; one on a Monday morning and one in the evening. To register an interest for these, or to find out a bit more information, please drop me an email to CatSimpsonRunning@gmail.com, stating your name and whether you’d be interested in attending the morning or evening session.When: Monday morning or evening, starting in late JuneWhere: Wimbledon Common Windmill car parkPrice: £50 for 10 weeks (one session per week)Many thanks

Il Malcazone – over the road from the cinema, Putney High Street. We’ve been here many a time over the years, avoiding the back with the TV screen and the very rowdy times, and had pleasant enough (and far too large) meals. Things have been going downhill over the last couple of years, pasta getting drier, inedible, old meatballs which the staff just shrugged their shoulders about when I complained, service getting slower, but we’ve stuck with it because we only visit occasionally. Should have read the most recent Google comments about the staff and especially the manager before we went yesterday for lunch – they are not flattering. We asked for chips as a starter to munch between us, and stressed NO salt. Carbonara and Hawaiian pizza ordered. Asked for extra sauce on carbonara as last one had been very, very dry. Chips arrived same time as mains, covered in salt which brought on a huge coughing fit had to call the waiter. Told him we’d ordered no salt, he straightaway picked up a cellar and tried to pour more on, another waiter had to intervene and take them away. Hawaiian good, pizzas generally are. I had the carbonara, a huge mound of almost dry spaghetti, even the fork wouldn't lie down in it. I couldn’t get down more than a small amount, too dry to swallow. Too disappointed and annoyed to complain on this occasion, just left it, and it sat on the table for 20 minutes while other half continued his pizza. When he’d left the table to go to the bathroom, the manager approached and asked, "What's the problem with the carbonara?" in a pretty aggressive tone. I explained it was dry despite my request for more sauce, and inedible. He didn't speak, just removed it. Two minutes later an embarrassed waiter brought the cold, congealed mess back to us in a takeaway box, saying the manager had told him to. We couldn’t believe it. Other half refused to pay, and demanded it be removed from the bill. We paid for the rest and were walking out when I noticed the manager. I politely challenged him about the takeaway but suddenly, after speaking perfect English for decades, he couldn't speak more than odd words. He said the takeaway was Steven’s dinner (pizza, which he’d consumed). Then he said we’d asked for it (of course we hadn’t). Then he said he’d thrown my old dinner in the bin. Then he said yes, it was the mess I’d sent back, returned to me to take home. We both told him he should be thoroughly ashamed of himself for his disrespect towards paying customers. We will never, ever go back there again. I’ve added my disgust to the Google comments about that restaurant (can’t confirm how filthy the kitchens are, as others have commented on, I haven’t seen those), but this contempt on his part was completely unforgiveable.
