[SE1 Discussion] Man (or woman) and a ladder needed

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 15:19:55 +0000

I live in SE16 and need someone with a ladder (to reach up to bedroom level) this google maps link will give you more of an idea
and install a tiny aerial just above the guttering line, i have all the bits needed and to be honest should take less then an hour, i do have access to the garden under me but local tradesman won't even return my calls and texts, so if anyone could suggest someone who has the ladder needed and wheels i'll be more then happy to pay a decent for the work to be undertaken.

It would be worth you naming the good and bad companies !

I have used Assembly Angels twice now and been very happy (they do not deliver or clear rubbish, just assembly)

Building is £25 call out+20% of the cost of the goods (+£20 if you want them attached to the wall), and they were quick and neat and tidy on both occasions. Another advantage of using them is that they can build wardrobes in an upright position which meant we could get the taller Ikea PAX wardrobes in our room.

3m of tall PAX units doors and internal fittings was about £1000, and fitting therefore was £245.
That would have taken me a boring day or two to put together and I would have struggled to build them upright.

All done for £1225...Sharps or similar would have cost us £6k+

[SE1 Discussion] University Photography Project

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 11:55:18 +0000

Dear All,

I am a photography student at Ravensbourne University, and I'm doing a photography project on SE1, trying to show what the area means to me and why. I'm focusing on lots of different aspects, I will be visiting religious places, shops, some of the more famous buildings, and I was wondering if anyone on here would be interested in taking part, or would be able to recommend anyone who might be interested?

Taking part would involve a range of things, portraits of the people involved, if you are based in a shop or market stall etc I would like to include images of that. I am also interested in doing some portraiture of people who live within SE1, which could either be in your home or in an area of SE1.

All my work would only be used for university, absolutely nothing will be commercial. It would also go on blog which I run for my university work.

If anyone would be interested or if you know anyone who might please let me know, it would be a great help!

Thank you,
Defne Altinoluk

The latest small business to go is Lifestyles, the homewear shop on Horsleydown which seems to have shut in the past few days. Looks like only the dentist and Café Paradiso are staying. So much for promises of community involvement in the development.

Spring Clean London just came round to clean a huge living room rug for me - they moved all the furniture and cleaned both sides - I thought £50 was very reasonable for 2 guys and all the kit they brought along. It too about 1.5 hrs. The rug looks great - I would recommend.

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Sainsbury's E&C

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 08:04:02 +0000

Another disappointed customer here.

For a 'full-sized' Sainsbury's, the range didn't seem that much greater than a Sainsbury's Local. The yoghurt selection is dismal (no Fage Total Greek yoghurt - which, these days, is quite a basic feature of any yoghurt aisle).

Another thing this branch has in common with Sainsbury's Locals is the pitiful beer selection, which has all the hallmarks of a beer-buyer who simply can't be bothered. If you went to a Sainsbury's you'd think this decade's boom in craft beer had never happened.

All in all, not a patch on Tesco Metro in Tooley Street, which is only slightly bigger, and not much better than the neighbouring Tesco Metro in the shopping centre.

[Property] District Heating Disconnection

Has anyone, or does anybody know of someone who has disconnected their house from one of Southwark's communal heating systems?

If so, how long / complicated was the process and how much did it cost?

[SE1 Discussion] Former Design Museum

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:08:57 +0000

Does any one know what will happen to the former Design Museum since Zahah Hadid sadly passed away. She was due to take over the building and use it for her Architecture Practice and a Museum of her work.
The building is begining to look rather neglected since the Design Museum moved to Kensington High Street.

I noticed round the New Year that the Chinese have built the world's highest bridge,545 metres high, 1,341 metres long. Cost £117mn. I know labour costs are lower and probably raw materials, but the difference is staggering.

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Sainsbury's E&C

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:16:50 +0000

Went last Saturday and left disappointed too. I only bought one overcooked loaf of bread (selection was dire). They only had very few products. Tesco should not worry for the time being. The Sainsbury in Green Park where I do most of my weekly shopping is much better. Is it the demographics, they think E&C is poorer so we only get shit industrial processed products because some assume poorer people don't cook and just eat fast food crap? 20,000 new people are expected to move in all the new buildings in the area. That's a small town. And that's what we get? A small upgrade from a convenience store...

Southwark Free School (a primary school) is not the same as the Compass School (secondary) which was the one Peter Wilkinson founded.
