I hope Rupa gets "un" suspended soon. I once wrote to her about an issue I was having and she responded really quickly and was very helpful. It was an unfortunate remark. I'm sure she will learn to keep her thoughts - even if true - to herself. In my dealings with people I have often said that someone does not sound "Irish" or "Scottish" or "Northern" (or whatever) and it was never said as a slur it was simply a fact. Politics is a dirty business and I hope Rupa recovers from this overblown off the cuff conversation.

Yesterday our street got notice (on those yellow A4 sheets beloved of the council) of a huge development opposite Morrisons, where there will be two high rise blocks and a third smaller building, plus an underground car park. This will be among the present blocks, Moreton tower etc. Am I the only one who thinks that this is too much? How many new flats does Acton need?

Can anyone recommend a Dermatologist. The waiting time on the NHS is making me think about going down the private route

If anyone due a booster has been resisting the idea of having to travel to Ealing, or further afield (yet again), I've just picked up mine at the mobile unit on the Mount. They are still there now (1745) and will be back on Sunday and Monday 1200-1800.They don't appear on the NHS website walk-in options and would be happy for the custom...

A neighbour has three large bags of tinned and dry food that she would like to give to a good bank. They would need to be collected from her. Any suggestions as to who could help ?

A few weeks ago a large commercial rubbish bin was positioned outside The Oaks Shopping Centre on Churchfield Road. Every week the bin has been left overflowing with rubbish collecting on the floor around it. It is an eyesore and the smell is appalling. I have written to the management of The Oaks as no common sense has been used in positioning this bin on a public road. I would like to make the council environmental services aware but cannot find a contact email/number anywhere on the website. Can anyone help? Thank you so much, Tom

I realise that this doesn't really chime with this forum's demographic but I thought it worth flagging up. If you know a woman of child-bearing age who is struggling to afford towels or tampons, then both Morrison's and Tesco are offering free products to them.In both cases you go to the Kiosk, where they sell fags etc. At Morrison's you ask for a package left for you by Sandy; at Tesco the package has been left by Beth. Discreet service and packaging for women who are embarrassed by needing them.

Has anyone local to Churchfield Road got a kitten or cat that likes the above? I bought some to tempt my elderly cat who is not eating much but she didn't like this particular variety.I have 9 pouches left.

Has anyone had the misfortune to have to speak with EC about non collection of wheelie rubbish bins. I have. My bin was not collected on the due date even though the collectors were collecting in our street. When I called I was told I would have to call the following day to report it. When I called today I was told that I should have called before 1.00pm. Now I will have to wait another week for the bin to be collected and if any sacks are not pushed into the bin then it will not be collected. I have know EC were useless and I should not have expected more from them. The woman I spoke to sounded half asleep - usual incompetent service from EC. They are truly the pits. No wonder we are over run with foxes and rodents.

Yesterday I saw someone leave a baby outside a shop in Larden Road. The baby was in a pram which would have fit in with ease. I share this from a place of care. Please do not leave your baby or young children unattended. It takes seconds for someone to take them

Hello! I'm looking for a part time housekeeper, 2 hours a day (mid morning Mon to Fri). I need help with cleaning, cooking, ironing, laundry, a bit of garden maintenance (nothing heavy) and light shopping. The person doesn't have to be a professional housekeeper, just someone who likes housework and is good at maintaining a home. Driving would help but not essential. If anyone is interested, please email me. Thanks very much. Start date 12th September.
