Used car dealer

Can anyone recommend a good used car dealer in or nearish Sydenham? LSDM cars near Bell Green seems a bit overpriced for what are essentially old bangers.

Independent financial adviser help

Hello.

Does anyone know a competent (local?) financial adviser who can help me sort out my finances? Preferably not with an exorbitant hourly rate, and independent.

Many thanks.

Air vent for a bathroom window

Hello.

We need to fit an air vent into a double-glazed UPVC window. Does anyone know any reputable companies that could do the job (cheaply and with no hard sell)?

Thanks

Re: Anyone recommend a plumber?

I'd also like to recommend Gavin Gregg (and Tony) of All Hours Plumbers (07949 085466). We used his firm to update our bathroom and, most recently, our kitchen. We're very happy with the results. (Send me a direct message if you need any further info, pics.)

Re: Which are the best primary schools in the Sydenham area?

We're thinking about applying to St Bart's for our daughter. We live on Silverdale but are not churchgoers. Not sure what our chances are of getting her in.

Need to get a fire certificate: help!

Hello. Long shot here, but does anyone know how I can get a fire certificate for a front door? I live in an ex-local authority block and the council now want me to prove that my (UPVC) door is fire-proof (can withstand fire for 10-20 minutes). We didn't get the door installed and can't find any prev...

An "unkindness" on Silverdale

Happened upon a rather unusual/disturbing sight last night (Wednesday) at 7.45pm: a group, or an unkindness, of ravens mobbing a single heron. The birds were flying very low and were making a terrible racket. Well, the ravens were anyway — the heron looked terrified (serves it right for trying to ea...

Re: Can you recommend an Estate Agent?!

Property World? Fine if you're a seller; awful if your a buyer (in my experience). I found them aggressive and a bit economical with the truth. Don't be sucked in by the patter; they are just as ruthless as the rest of them. PS: I don't hold a grudge with them. Just found them horrible to difficult ...

Primary schools/pre-schools in Sydenham

Hello. Just about to start researching primary schools/pre-schools for our daughter (2 and a bit) *gulp*. We live in Silvderdale, so I'm not sure what catchment area we're in. Can anyone recommend any schools, within walking distance? I really haven't a clue where to start. (Obviously I start trawli...

Soldering/welding help needed

Hello. Does anyone know of any local restorers who can do a spot of welding? It's a tiny, tiny job (a few minutes work, I think), but the nearest person I can find is in Thornton Heath. Is there anyone closer? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Horse manure...

Does it deter or attract foxes? Or are they not bothered? Just thinking about getting some for the garden.

Car heads: technical advice needed

Hello. My car was broken into recently (in Peckham not Sydenham) and the key for the wheel locking nuts went walkabout. Don't ask me why. My question is, can I buy it off the shelf? Or do I need to go back to the manufacturer? Apologies if this is a stupid question. Ta. (PS: Honda Civic R reg. 1.4-l...
