Hi, Does anybody have any experience of tenants taking over management of a residential building under the Right to Manage optiona? We have a flat in South London where the managing agent has been appalling. (This is the second agent we have used) As residents, we are all considering taking over the right to manage. Would be grateful for any comments from someone with expeience/knowledge of this? Thanks

Hi, We are looking to get our front garden renovated. Does anyone have any recommendations please? The plan is to have a black and white tiled path with larger grey tiles on rest of the garden, we also need to get the wall rebuilt and new railings and a gate. Thanks in advance

Never mind the ambulance crews and the nurses, how will we manage without these dedicated public servants? I shall always treasure the memory of getting a ticket outside my own home because resident parking had been craftily suspended the day before and I hadn't noticed. Or the time I got a ticket while I was looking for a machine that worked, in the days when they took change.

A friend of mine has finally decided to sell his house in Central Chiswick after renting it out for years. Any recommendations on a suitable sales agent based on personal experience? Sensible realistic pricing, professional approach. No approaches from actual agents please. And it really is for a friend, not me! I’m not going anywhere… seems the market is a bit slow.

I was surprised to see these appear on the High Road by the end of TGT this morning - I had no idea they were being planned.In principle I think they are a great idea and am very much on board with their message but I couldn't help notice that, after just a few hours, they were starting to get a bit scuffed up. Take the chance to see them as soon as possible while they are relatively pristine because they might look a bit scruffy quite quickly.

Can't see this posted to you good folks from W4 but in case anyone has been to Ealing hospital and still has some of their kit - Physiotherapists appealing to people to return unused walking aids to Ealing Hospital.Thousands of aids are given to patients every year, but many aren’t returned when patients no longer need them.Victoria Manson, Principal Lead Musculoskeletal and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, at Northwick Park Hospital, said, “We do have a shortage of crutches, frames and walking sticks.“This means it can be a struggle to provide patients with the support they need, which in some cases can lead to discharge being held up. It costs tens of thousands of pounds a year to replace walking aids.“We’d really appreciate it if people can have a check at home and return any aids they have. That will allow us to clean them up and re-use/recycle them for other people to use.”If you have a metal Zimmer frame, crutches, or walking sticks, return it to Ealing Hospital - Level 1 Orange Wing, Physiotherapy department.Wooden walking sticks and commodes will not be accepted.

Would be grateful for recommendations- someone to supply and fit a stone/marble/granite worktop, with cut-out for basin.

Looks like the government has put an end to Wandsworth Council attempt to start fining people breaking the speed limit in 20mph zones.http://www.putneysw15.com/default.asp?section=community&link=http://neighbournet.com/server/common/ldrswandroad009.htmI'm a big fan of the 20mph speed limit in urban areas - it makes the whole envirnoment much less stressful. However, I'm pleased with this decision. It can be very difficult to stay under 20mph and I think lots of drivers genuinely intending to adhere to the limit drift over. There danger was that giving council's the power to do this would have resulted in another money spinner and lots of people struggling financially getting hit with fines with no real net benefit to road safety.

Really happy and relieved to say that I found Bear shortly after midnight. She was cold and ravenous but thanks to some wonderfully kind people who let me know about sightings I was able to find her.

I know people on this site are amazing at finding missing cats so I hope you can help me track down my chocolate/cream sortie who went missing early on Sunday morning. She goes out but always pops in and out of the house all day and sleeps at home at night. Do please check sheds as it was a lovely day on Sunday and she may have decided to curl up in one while you were gardening. Full details of how to get in touch are here https://www.identibase.co.uk/lost-and-found/missing-pet/61230
