I don't think the general public will understand the need, then there'll be more time needed to EXPLAIN to the publ...

Re: Wellbeing health shop ...

I also get my hippy-veggie friend's Christmas Hamper from there each year - I just by lots of fancy organic jams and chocolate and stuff and put them in a box. She'll be coming next weekend to receive it as she's bee at an Ashram in India (I've cha...

Re: Squatters have just moved in

...they're there now, lights ablazing. Do they have to pay for electricty? I doubt it. They've probably put the heating on aswell. The council should have cut off the amenities when it became empty.

Squatters have just moved in

... to the building on Westwood Hill next door to the old peoples home. I looked up and there they were, five males, one child and one bull terrier, white van, furniture being moved in as we speak. I rang the police and watched them turn up, look at the gate and drive away. Apparently the squatters ...

Re: Leisure centre/gym reviews wanted please

Hello BBB, Good for you for wanting to get fitter and healthier. Can I just add something that may encourage you further regarding gym membership? I joined Gymphobics a couple of years ago - it was the first gym I ever joined; in my late forties! I was the most unlikely candidate and was not actuall...

Re: Weather and travel

I think it would take a bit more than this to get the day off. A good downfall tonight, that's what we need. When it happened a couple of years ago we went to the Dartmouth and the atmosphere was great, lots of people decided to go to the pub for lunch, everyone was in a good mood.

Re: Weather and travel

.... thanks, that's good to know. What we need up here though is news from people in Syd to tell us what its like there, and when its time to come home, if indeed we need to leave early. Its stopped here, not laid either.

Re: GOOD NEWS

I'm going to play the loyalty card here: The "buy Xmas gifts in Sydenham shops" idea is excellent and is most certainly feasible for many gifts, but it is singularly depressing that it is seen as an experiment and potentially implies that custom to shops after Xmas will revert to elsewhere for the ...
