You may have seen the Crossrail 2 roadshow vans out and about. Local residents have had their chance to ask questions and express their views. No doubt, Fleur and I were out to hear what people had to say. Tooting Broadway or Balham?.. That is the question.
Regardless of where is ultimately chosen, this stands to affect most local residents.
Where would you like it to be? For further information and to have your say, follow the link below;
Tis the season to be jolly and we have been enjoying attending the local primary school Christmas fairs. This past weekend saw us visit Rutherford House and Ravenstone schools. Lots of organisation went in to putting on fun stalls and even Santa’s grotto! They were a pleasure to visit!
Save our Creche!!
Balham Lesuire Centre during ‘refurbishment’ which didn’t replace the creche
Balham Lesuire Centre crèche used to be a ‘life saver’ for lots of local mums but has been allowed to decline, pushed out of its room into an unsuitable room and has been closed this week and ‘until further notice’ because the room is too cold.
Please show your support for Balham Lesuire Centre Creche and sign the petition to Wandsworth Council and People and Places:
Save our creche
We demand that Balham Lesuire Centre creche is saved, provided with high quality premises and well advertised to local parents.
- The creche enables parents of young children to exercise and is essential for physical and mental health
- Without the creche, our local Lesuire Centre is out of bounds whilst our children are small
- The creche has been moved from a prominent room at the front to an unsuitable squash court at the back
- The creche has not been advertised and so has declined in use – although there is large local demand for this
We call on Wandsworth Council and People and Places to save the creche and make it a great facility for babies and a lifeline for carers.
