I am confused as to how the AFC can say that they should get their planning permission based on the fact that they still have many fans in Merton , even though they DO NOT go to watch the games and that they also have many followers who have NEVER seen them play. How loyal and interested are these "fans". Where is the guarantee that those followers and fans will want to pay for seats to watch them play. The AFC are not the DONS and I wonder if a lot of people realise that. Let them stay where ever it is they are, we don't need them. It is not an essential for boroughs to have their own teams and I am sure we do not want to deprive the borough they are in - do we?

Dear fellow residentThe "local" developer who replaced the wonderful King of Denmark Pub on the Rigdway with the eyesore that is the Denmark Lofts is at it again, but on residential streets in the village conservation area -- on Clifton Road no less. Notwithstanding the fact that Merton's own Tall Building strategy regards developments of the scale being proposed the developer is seeking to exceed all reasonable limits and the council's stated objective to conserve and enhance the historic environment. Replacing a wonderful 1940s family home (which was looked after by an old chap who recently passed away) with 4+ storey monstrosity with a huge basement car park, removing much of the planted gardens -- huge demolition, sheet piling, huge dumper trucks and deliveries for what could be 2 years in the making. All next to the older folk who live in Rutland Lodge and Lyston House and causing huge potential risk to the young kids and parents of Kings Junior School, to name a few.BUT -- this is only the first concern because letting one in lets the next one and next one and so on. Please visit the Denmark lofts on the Ridgeway (9 units and empty restaurant, studio/office and planting that is dying or go to Kemble Hall, 24 Keswick Road, Putney – 22 flats -- on another family house plot in a similar style to what is proposed -- but at least this had the top floor flats in the roof -- that's not the plan for Clifton Road -- the roof is on top -- making this a very high building.Have no doubt that the developer wishes to break the restrictive covenant in the title deed established by Dame Julia Vertue Mansel in 1920 to keep the home at 3 Clifton Road a single dwelling; remove the existing shrubs and hedges; build apartments that will need to sell for more than 1.5-2.0m each (if there are only 4) -- this is not for the likes of most of us. BUT what is more likely -- he gets permission, then works out the selling price is too low, and seeks to convert the permission into even more units -- but "all in the envelope of the existing permission". We have all seen this before. so we end up with Denmark Lofts again or Kemble Hall -- 9 or is it 22 units rammed on top of one another.

I hope the idea of a new High school in Whatley avenue is totally quashed, I live in Whatley Avenue and believe me we are already squashed between Joseph Hood School and Rutlish High School. From the High School we have constant take away food litter thrown scuffles and fights everywhere,from Joseph Hood we have the parents who have to drive to drop off/pick up their children, double parking and taking up the whole of the parking places . Having said that there is and always has been a place for Joseph Hood school, especially as Merton has spent so much effort to ensure sufficient Junior School placesthat must have included the places at Joseph Hood. But we in Whatley Avenue truly would crush under the pressure of another High school, it just would not be fair on the residence. Nor on the children of Joseph Hood.

I had heard this restaurant was very good and picked up a menu with a view to booking it for dinner on our wedding anniversary. However we have decided to boycott it as there are frogs legs on the menu. Frogs are facing an extinction crisis worldwide, and the last thing they need is for their populations to be decimated in Asian countries to export their legs to the UK to eat. I read that India has already banned this export trade, and hopefully other Asian countries will follow. See:http://savethefrogs.com/threats/frog-legs/index.html

Dear SW19I have already sorted out this issue. Merton allowed the developer to fell the trees, which I asked the Council to value to which they responded £20,000. I then worked with Merton Tree Wardens and the Council to agree how the money would be spent on new trees. There will be 42 new trees from the development going East along Bushey Road until it meets Grand Drive. These include large plane trees and many others. Planting will take place next Winter.Councillor David DeanConservativesDundonald Ward

Hey Parents/Guardians,I'm currently working on the design for a wearable device to keep children aged 11 years or younger safe on our streets. Therefore I'm conducting some research surrounding child safety and was wondering if you could help me by completing this short anonymous questionnaire: goo.gl/forms/y388pdEeOg - (copy and paste the link into your web browser)It will only take 1 minute to answer and you'll be contributing to the development of a device to keep children safer. It would be great if you could send on to friends with children as well if you can! The reserach is part of my final year University project!Many ThanksJohn

- What? • It's not as tough as you might think. You don't have to pedal non-stop for 24hours, just be part of a team that keeps going around the clock (6pm- 6pm). You can get your own team together or join an existing one.• Qualified instructors will lead hour long classes back to back and pumping tunes will encourage you throughout. You have control of the resistance on your bike so you dictate how much you push yourself!• There will be plenty of food and drink to keep your energy levels up and there will be a chill out zone where you can rest and support other team mates.• Teams can be any number up to 10 cyclists. The more team mates, the less pedaling you will have to do!• The team members will decide among themselves how long each person will spin for and at what time, ensuring someone will always be on the team's bike. All teams will be asked to submit a schedule prior to the event.• The fundraising target is £500 per team. The Pedal Studio kindly sponsor the event by donating the venue and the fantastic spin instructors. This means all of your sponsorship goes straight to helping Starfish to provide shelter, education and healthcare to children orphaned or made vulnerable by AIDS in South Africa. We will help you be a star by providing lots of great fundraising tips. - When?Fri 27th - Sat 28th Feb 2015 (6pm - 6pm)- Where?Putney Pedal Studio, London- ContactEmail Katie at email@example.com, or register online at : http//www.starfishcharity.org/get-involved-uk/run,-cycle,-jump/24hour-spinning%C2%AE-marathon-27-28022015.aspxWe look forward to seeing you all there!

The residents of Raynesfield have fought a successful campaign and should be very proud that they have forced MOPAC to change its strategy.You quote Mr Greenhalgh as saying, "I was not happy about how they (the residents) had been treated and I was not prepared to see key workers (...) forced to move out of their homes". But it was his policy to sell off these residential properties so he, and MOPAC, are therefore responsible for how the residents have been treated. Also, the picture of Deputy Mayor Stephen Greenhalgh with Conservative Councillors Lewis-Lavender, which accompanies the article, smacks of blatant political opportunism. Cllr Gilli Lewis-Lavender spoke of the necessity of selling off Raynesfield at the Council Meeting on the 19th November. I am glad that the motion, calling on Boris Johnson and MOPAC to halt the evictions, was carried, although not one Conservative councillor supported it. So why is she in this picture? And what help has MP Stephen Hammond given? I have not found one tenant who says they were helped by him.There are still several issues that MOPAC needs to clarify:Firstly, MOPAC must allow those who were forced to move out of their flats to return to their homes. Secondly, the tenants need to be given long term security, with assured tenancies.Finally, MOPAC needs to compensate residents for van hire, storage costs, utility reconnection fees and so on. On the day before evictions were due to begin, some residents took their furniture to the tip or to charity shops; some now lack the basics, like beds and fridges. Lib Dem Assembly members, Caroline Pidgeon and Stephen Knight, will continue to put pressure on the Mayor of London and MOPAC until these points have been answered. Raynesfield residents know that I will carry on supporting them as I have done in over the last few stressful months.

I'd just like to say well done to Merton Local Authority for turning Wimbledon Broadway into Ibiza over the last 10 years.I have just witnessed yet another violent assault in the Broadway at 11.52 this evening, presently the Broadway is occupied by hundreds of drunk revellers shouting and screaming.Walking down the Broadway at night on a Friday or Saturday is like being in Ibiza. My front garden is a toilet and I have to listen to the endless booming of bass music until 3am almost every night.All my complaints get ignored, because there is no chance they are going to do anything about it.The Broadway is now just an entire rabble of drunken louts which gets worse year on year.

Posted by: Neil MilkinsDate/Time: 08/07/14 17:50:00Since May 2014 there have been nearly 22,000 hits on youtube of the Sky TV documentary Harold Jones - The Welsh Serial Killer. I am convinced that former Fulham, Puntney and Hammersmith resident Harold Jones was responsible for 8 unsolved murders in the Hammersmith district between 1959 and 1965, which includes 3 at Chiswick. The 45 minute documentary can be accessed via the Internet by googling Harold Jones - killer. Pass the word darlings! If anyone remembers Jones who also used the name Harry Stevens please contact me via the forum or at email@example.com Regards. Neil Milkins.

Used them two times, fine. Third time we had some very important papers to go to a Harley Street doctor - pick up was fine, but a couple of days later she was complaining nothing had shown up. On the trace log the papers had been taken to the main depot and left there. We entered an on line chat to India, who told us it could be the following week before they were delivered, wished us a nice day and ended the call. We tried them once more this week to deliver a parcel to a kiddie. You pay up front, someone was here all day Tuesday waiting for the pick up, and again all day Wednesday, nobody showed, little boy is already upset. Another on line chat to India - told us they'd have to open an investigation. What good is that to us? I asked who was going to apologise to the little lad. I was wished a nice day again, that was at about 7.00 pm last night. Not worth the hassle. Dreadful service, they've obviously got too busy to be able to cope, and they don't give a toss when you complain. Never again.

Hi, I wanted to recommend Alyson and her team at Tristram Design & Build. They did a great job with our kitchen extention and redecoration of the whole house after. Alyson managed the project from quote to completion and was great as the main point of contact. Their team of decorators were great to deal with and Alyson was a stickler for making sure they always cleaned up and that there was a minimum amount of mess and dust affecting the rest of the house. Very happy! Here are her contact details: Alyson at Tristram Design: 0207 350 1234 or 07776 224334 http://www.tristramdesign.com/property-refurbishments/Thank you,Martin

I'm starting up women's beginner running groups on Wimbledon Common, commencing in late June. If you've ever wanted to start running but weren't sure where to start, my groups offer a relaxed, supportive environment for beginner runners in the local area.We’ll build up slowly, with lots of run-walking initially, on the flat, scenic trails of the common, and by the end of the ten week course you’ll be able to run 5k without stopping.Whether you want to improve your general fitness, or have your sights set on running a 5k, a 10k (or maybe even a marathon one day), my groups will help you get a step closer to your goal. I’ll also be offering 5-10k groups further down the line and one-on-one coached outdoor fitness sessions, offering something a bit different to working out in a gym environment.We’ll meet at the Windmill car park on Wimbledon Common, which can be reached easily by car, on foot or by local public transport routes, and we’ll run on the beautiful trails in the surrounding area. Groups will be led by me, Cat. I’m a UK Athletics qualified run leader and a personal trainer, so can offer advice about wider issues relating to running, such as hydration and nutrition, strength and conditioning, and injury prevention.I’ll initially be holding two sessions solely for women; one on a Monday morning and one in the evening. To register an interest for these, or to find out a bit more information, please drop me an email to CatSimpsonRunning@gmail.com, stating your name and whether you’d be interested in attending the morning or evening session.When: Monday morning or evening, starting in late JuneWhere: Wimbledon Common Windmill car parkPrice: £50 for 10 weeks (one session per week)Many thanks

Il Malcazone – over the road from the cinema, Putney High Street. We’ve been here many a time over the years, avoiding the back with the TV screen and the very rowdy times, and had pleasant enough (and far too large) meals. Things have been going downhill over the last couple of years, pasta getting drier, inedible, old meatballs which the staff just shrugged their shoulders about when I complained, service getting slower, but we’ve stuck with it because we only visit occasionally. Should have read the most recent Google comments about the staff and especially the manager before we went yesterday for lunch – they are not flattering. We asked for chips as a starter to munch between us, and stressed NO salt. Carbonara and Hawaiian pizza ordered. Asked for extra sauce on carbonara as last one had been very, very dry. Chips arrived same time as mains, covered in salt which brought on a huge coughing fit had to call the waiter. Told him we’d ordered no salt, he straightaway picked up a cellar and tried to pour more on, another waiter had to intervene and take them away. Hawaiian good, pizzas generally are. I had the carbonara, a huge mound of almost dry spaghetti, even the fork wouldn't lie down in it. I couldn’t get down more than a small amount, too dry to swallow. Too disappointed and annoyed to complain on this occasion, just left it, and it sat on the table for 20 minutes while other half continued his pizza. When he’d left the table to go to the bathroom, the manager approached and asked, "What's the problem with the carbonara?" in a pretty aggressive tone. I explained it was dry despite my request for more sauce, and inedible. He didn't speak, just removed it. Two minutes later an embarrassed waiter brought the cold, congealed mess back to us in a takeaway box, saying the manager had told him to. We couldn’t believe it. Other half refused to pay, and demanded it be removed from the bill. We paid for the rest and were walking out when I noticed the manager. I politely challenged him about the takeaway but suddenly, after speaking perfect English for decades, he couldn't speak more than odd words. He said the takeaway was Steven’s dinner (pizza, which he’d consumed). Then he said we’d asked for it (of course we hadn’t). Then he said he’d thrown my old dinner in the bin. Then he said yes, it was the mess I’d sent back, returned to me to take home. We both told him he should be thoroughly ashamed of himself for his disrespect towards paying customers. We will never, ever go back there again. I’ve added my disgust to the Google comments about that restaurant (can’t confirm how filthy the kitchens are, as others have commented on, I haven’t seen those), but this contempt on his part was completely unforgiveable.

We expect yourselves - as news "reporters" - to be less obvious in your (anti-Council/Labour) bias and also not unduly sensationalise headlines to boost your circulation at the cost of community harmony! Standard reporting practice of statistics is over a year and not three years. Imagine the tabloids reporting that house prices have shot up by (perhaps) 300% over the past 30 years? Secondly, what the Merton Council Cabinet Member, Cllr Saunders, says seems justified anyway : I regularly drive in exactly that range of the road (opposite Centre Court) and I'd prefer even more rigorous traffic law enforcement on the rogue drivers in order to be fair to us, the law abiding residents. I wonder whether Merton Council should seriously consider introducing Local Congestion Charge on non-Merton cars. I'd like to hear opinions of your readers on this last point too. Thank you.

Discovered a new small lose tea boutique stall in Wimbledon Centre Court ground floor, which has a very large selection of natural lose teas from around the world. Over 50 different types and flavours I believe. The service is excellent, and the tea flavours are simply the best. Since the shop is new, clearly requires support and I see myself restocking my tea there for the foreseeable future, I decided to do my bit to make sure they survive first few months! P.S. The girl that works there is very pleasant.

Hello. I am a female experienced babysitting with lots of references. My availability is evenings and weekends (days too). Some afternoons but I usually don't know about those until a week in advance. I am happy to work on an adhoc basis although I would be delighted to have a regular slot to make sure I am always available - e.g. for your gym night, date night or weekend/evening classes etc. During the week I split my time between studying and the wards, as a 3rd year (mature - late 20s) medical student. By default this makes me pretty good at tutoring too. Especially science! It's probably worth mentioning I spent the last three summers dog-sitting which in another thing I love to do. If you need help with one or a combination of these, do drop me a line and we can see what we can work out. Areas preferred: Wimbledon, Tooting, Streatham, Clapham, Wandworth, Dulwich, Herne Hill

The recent conference on the future of Wimbledon was clearly only organised for the benefit of people hoping to make money/votes out of the town, and not for local residents. I was very disappointed that it wasn't open to local people to hear the ideas from people like Richard Rogers, and offer their own views. Poor Wimbledon seems to be exploited for the making of money and not for the benefit of the people who live here. We have already seen the Village become a retail outlet for expensive clothes and eateries, and lose it's village atmosphere. The Town centre has no independent shops left, and now more plans are being discussed without any input from residents. In the '80s there was a local people's Plan for the development of Wimbledon, which was very popular, but ignored in favour of office and shop building. Will we be ignored again?

Having just read the article on the possible pedestrianisation of Wimbledon Town Centre, I was caught between two reactions. The first was 'great - how lovely'. But then I wondered what would happen to the traffic? Not all of it is through traffic - as a local resident I need to travel by car and need to pass through or around the town centre. Like many others, I've found a route avoiding the very centre, but closing it off would force even more vehicles down already crowded residential roads. The project might benefit some residents, but at the expense of others. Also, if every local town decided to ban traffic, everything would grind to a halt. Such proposals need to be considered carefully as part of a wider plan. Ideally, more people will use public transport, but there will remain a certain number of people for whom the schedules or connection make travelling to work or other regular appointments by car a necessity.I worry that this is an overly idealistic dream, and without a proper evaluation of the wider impact it could be very destructive to the lives of the very residents its proposing to better.

High Court agrees to grant Judicial ReviewThe Friends of Putney Common (FofPC) learnt on Friday (12th July 2013) that its application for a Judicial Review challenging the legality of "easement agreements", allowing the building of a private road on Putney Common, has been granted by the High Court. The agreements were signed in secret by the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators (WPCC) and Wandsworth Borough Council (WBC) in February 2012. John Howell QC, sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge, said that the WPCC's assertions that it is legally entitled to provide easements over Putney Common are “arguable”. A date for the Judicial Review has not yet been fixed.The proposed private road would be for the sole use of luxury flats and a two-form entry primary academy for 420 pupils to be built on the site of the former Putney Hospital, which is entirely surrounded by common land. The planning application for the development attracted a substantial number of objections from local Putney residents, including over 500 specific complaints about building roads on the Common. The planning application was by Wandsworth Council’s Children’s Services Department to Wandsworth Council acting as Planning Authority, and was granted in October 2012 but subsequently quashed by a High Court order in March 2013. Today, the site has no planning applications pending or valid consents. The decision by the High Court to allow the case to proceed to a Judicial Review is a major step forward for FofPC who have long argued that the WPCC is acting outside its powers laid down in the 1871 Wimbledon and Putney Commons Act. This Act of Parliament was specifically set up to create and protect the Common and stop encroachment on to it. In submissions to the court, the WPCC (and WBC, as an "interested party") argued that it had the authority to make such easement agreements. The parties also said that the Judicial Review application should be refused because it was “out of time” and “devoid of merit”.Despite these submissions, the High Court have granted the FofPC a Judicial Review including a Protective Costs Order and recognized the claim under the Aarhus Convention. FofPC spokesman Nicholas Evans, in whose name the Judicial Review application was made, said today:"We are delighted that the High Court has granted a Judicial Review. It is a step forward in our campaign to protect Putney Common from what we believe is unlawful encroachment by the Council. We have an excellent and very experienced legal team and we are looking forward to arguing our case in more detail before the Judge. After 18 months of acrimonious debate with the WPCC and WBC we welcome this opportunity to establish once and for all whether the Conservators can effectively sell rights to parts of the Common and allow the council to build private roads on it. We are grateful to the many local residents who have supported and helped us to reach this stage.” Notes for Editors1) Friends of Putney Common is a local community group formed by Putney residents to protect Putney Common and the site of Putney Hospital from inappropriate development.2) A planning application was made by Wandsworth Borough Council in February 2012 to build a 2FE Primary Academy School with a restricted roof-top playground and 24 luxury flats on the site of Putney Hospital. The hospital had been closed since 1998. The Council bought the site from the Wandsworth Primary Care Trust for £4.4m. The first application by the Council was declared invalid in May 2012. A further application was submitted in July 2012, which the Planning Application Committee granted permission in October 2012, despite receiving over 800 objections. This permission was quashed in the High Court in March 2013 following a legal challenge by FofPC, as it was unlawful. (See previous FofPC press releases).3) The Planning Application Number reference is 2012/0758. There is no current planning application or permission relating to the site. 4) FofPC has challenged the need for a new school at the Putney Hospital site following analysis of the background data to school projections. See Press Release ref FofPC PR 10-7-13.5) All legal exchanges between the parties have been posted on the Friends of Putney Common website, as has the notification by John Howell QC, (sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge) granting FofPC permission for the Judicial Review.

Hi! My name is Aimara Magana, and I am an oboist and music teacher based in the South London and Surrey area. I am teaching both through London music services and privately. I am very passionate about enabling young children to develop a passion for music. Pupils of all levels, from beginners to the more advanced, are welcome. I have been teaching a few students in the East Dulwich area for a while now, and references from their parents are available on request.I do not only give oboe lessons but also teach the rest of the woodwind instruments, including the recorder. I am qualified to teach music theory and analysis, and offer private piano tuition. One hour and 30 minutes lessons available. I have quite an unusual method of teaching, my students learn not only to play an instrument, but also music theory. I believe that to integrate the theory and the practice aspects makes for better understanding, therefore it makes better musicians. I am happy to go to your house, as I live locally.

Wonderful food (though some of it's a bit hot for me), attentive staff, you pay a bit over the odds but it's been worth it. Sunday buffet, excellent idea to get bodies in, everything cooked fresh, gorgeous. Until two weeks ago. Restaurant completely empty bar the two of us. Had lovely starters, then a salad and wanted to think about the rest. Asked to order ... again ... and again ... and again ... and again. They fussed around our sole occupied table pushing menus in front of us, moving things around, until we were very angry and they were also annoyed with us, although we couldn't understand why. Spoilt the entire day. We complained and were told the policy had altered from what it says on the menu, "Take your time the way the Thais do", to, order your food within 90 minutes because then you can't unless you want desert, nothing else. What a shame. It used to be worth spending time and money and money in, but to be harassed and rushed like that, frankly, it's no longer worth it to us. Food no doubt still splendid, but be warned, on a Sunday it is no longer true that you will be able to take your time because if you do, even in an empty restaurant, you'll be sorry.

Hi there,This is a WARNING to anyone thinking of buying a leasehold property from BARRATT HOMES. I bought a flat from them in Brentford last summer, and the price they quoted as a service charge estimate in their marketing material was only HALF of what they actually charged! THEY CAN’T GET AWAY WITH THAT!!!! I hear you all shout.Correct.I took my case to the Consumer Code for Homebuilders and was awarded compensation.I have uploaded the adjudication I received – please visit the below links (I would be very interested to hear your comments or if you want help with a similar issue then please do get in touch):http://honeybadgerblog.co.ukbit.ly/16AKShuFIGHT THE POWER!

Thank god for people like Stephan Morris.Wimbledon needs more people like him who are brave enough to take action and support our local community and police endeavours to keep our neighbour hood safe and crime numbers down.His quick action to report a burglary and an arson attack should inspire more of us to get behind our local Police force and local hero's like Stephan.Thank you Stephan.Madeleine Preston

Many of the 45,000 households who pay the WPCC levy for the upkeep and conservation of the Commons live in Wimbledon. Quite a few of them do not - they are nearer to Putney Common or are in Putney Parish.But I'm sure we can all agree wherever we live that the body of Trustees set up originally by an Act of Parliament in 1871 have done a pretty good job of looking after this important open space. So why have I, and a local community group called 'Friends of Putney Common' (www.friendsofputneycommon.org) resorted to applying to the High Court for a judicial review of the Conservators recent actions to sell rights to Wandsworth Borough Council allowing them to build roads and paths on Putney Common? Because we believe this is in direct contravention to the 1871 Act and is clearly unlawful.Some key questions which might prompt you to look further into this unfortunate situation are given below. Full details can be seen on the website I mentioned above.1) The Conservators knew when they signed an agreement in July 2010 to build roads on Putney Common to facilitate a new health clinic on the old Putney Hospital site, that the plans for the clinic had already been cancelled by the WPHT board in September 2009. Why did they go ahead anyway? Were they in cahoots with the Council?2) They may claim that they would be "reclaiming" land from the Hospital for the Common. But this was land already designated in the 1871 Act as Common. They didn't need to take this action to reclaim it. Was it just the £250,000 "access fee" that tempted them?3) When the Council announced that it would buy the site and build flats and a huge primary school for 420 pupils, did they ask local residents for their views? They did not. They went ahead and signed another agreement, this time with an "access fee" of £350,000. All done in secret.4) When they were sent two legal opinions by Barristers briefed by Friends of Putney Common showing that their actions were "ultra vires" (beyond their statutory powers) why did they still push ahead?5) Why are they fighting to hold on to their promised money and not protecting our common?6) Why does this also matter to residents of Wimbledon who do not live near Putney Common? Because the Conservators claim that they can grant "easements" to build roads not necessary to protect the common, to facilitate development. In clear contravention of the 1871 Act. Next time they act in this high-handed and secret manner, it may well be a chunk of Wimbledon Common in their sights, and not just Putney Common.NickWebsite: www.friendsofputneycommon.orgTwitter @FofPCEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear Editor,In its comments onthe CDZ the St Helier Pub Group seems unable to accept that Merton, just like other councils, has absolutely no power to stop pubs closing, or to prevent their being converted into shops or eating establishments. Even on the one occasion when we refused a pub’s replacement by housing, on the grounds of loss of a community facility, the owners didn’t bother to appeal but turned it into a restaurant instead. The policy in our 2003 Unitary Development Plan designed to offer protection to pubs used for community purposes has been rendered worthless by later changes in national planning rules.Yours,Philip Jones (Councillor)Chair, Planning Applications Committee.

Thumbs down to TIMPSON of Wimbledon ! Do not bother spending money on a lifetime battery guarantee in here. I did, on 23.10.2009 at 13.12 hrs for a watch I treasure, I paid the extra and was promised I would never have to pay for another watch battery at that shop. I was given a printed receipt stating, “Lifetime battery”. Made tatty and fragile over the years, I have nonetheless retained my receipt. Yesterday was the first day I needed to avail myself of my “lifetime battery”. The young lad in the shop told me that I should have been given a card, the receipt I had been supplied with wasn’t enough. I explained that was all I was given. He told me twice that I couldn’t have purchased the original battery at that shop. He was reassured by myself and my partner who was with me on the day of purchase, that I had. He insisted that I had not, and told me that the till receipts they issued looked different than that I was showing him. I told him yes, perhaps they’d changed them over the years. He waved his badge at me and told me he’d been there since 2006 and it was not from them (which it was), and that I would have to pay another £17+ for another “lifetime battery”. After many years of being loyal to that particular Timpson, neither of us will ever enter it again. I do not wish to have it implied by a youngster that I am lying about where I purchased a battery, nor do I wish to hand that same shop yet more money for the same service that I had purchased and which had been guaranteed years earlier. So, thumbs down Timpson. Customer care today, dreadful, it's put us off for good ! Be warned, all.
