I’m looking to remove a couple of bulky items from my home, sofa etc and was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations? I’ve looked into using the council collection services but the wait time is too long and it doesn’t look like they have a fully service running at the minute so I would appreciate any other suggestions anyone has. Thank you!

Please can someone help settle an argument between two friends of mine who grew up within walking distance of Greyhound Road and yet have completely differing opinions as to whether it is Hammersmith or Fulham.

Misleading information provided by energy switching company Look After My Bills to the public has been addressed by the Advertising Standards Authority. Below is a post shared by Nick Blagg, a member of: "Look After My Bills Problem Reporting Page." Nick Blagg shared a link.The complaint made to the advertising standards agency against LAMB has been upheld !! It feels like a partial victory to me based on what the ruling is (see below) but it’s still a win and the more of us that continue to complain the more pressure is applied. Keep it up guys. 👍🏻Dear Mr Blagg,Thank you for your continued patience. Further to the below, we received another complaint which raised issues similar to those highlighted in your complaint. Based on the information you and the other complainant provided, we considered that advertising content from Look After My Bills was likely to break the advertising rules we apply. Therefore, we contacted the advertiser to ask for their assurance that future ads do not misleadingly imply that users of the service will have access to every single energy company and every single energy deal on the market. They have provided this assurance.This now resolves your complaint, and the case will be closed. Basic information including the advertiser’s name and where the ad appeared will be published on www.asa.org.ukThank you for bringing this matter to our attention.Kind regards,JamesJames JonesComplaints ExecutiveDirect Line 020 7492 2214Please note, I do not work on FridaysAdvertising Standards AuthorityCastle House, 37-45 Paul StreetLondon EC2A 4LSTelephone 020 7492 2222

You tell us that redevelopment is not due to start until 2021. In the meantime Ikea have done a pretty good job of killing off Hammersmith as a shopping destination with accelerating shop closures in the Mall. Let us hope it can only get better. There is no information for residents as to their plans, so difficult to feel positive about their takeover and the proposed rebranding of Kings Mall with a tortured made-up name.

FINAL WARNING. If anyone is thinking of joining energy switching company Look After My Bills or energy supply company, Utility Point, please look at their reviews on Look After My Bills Problem Reporting Page and Utility Point Owes Me a Refund on Facebook Groups page. There are thousands of people nationwide that have had nightmare experiences with these companies. Both companies will sign you up within seconds on dedicated signing up landlines but when problems arise it is virtually impossible to contact them. Telephone calls are not connected and emails to them don't get answered. There are many warnings on Trustpilot about these two companies as well. Shockingly Utility Point are under investigation by Trustpilot for offering incentives to people to post positive reviews. Look After My Bills are now also under investigation for doing the same.

Serco, the sub-contractor for the Council, do not dispute that:"...many refuse collectors have worked for months on end without taking annual leave, including to make up numbers when their colleagues have fallen sick or had to self-isolate."They deserve their holiday allowance! They had tons of extra stuff to collect over the summer when all the pubs were closed and the municipal waste baskets in parks and everywhere outside were overflowing! And they work tirelessly week in, week out. If they got this holiday allowance before Covid, they should still get it now.There is one condition: Please holiday in the UK. No foreign holidays.

I support the Covid marshals. So many joggers take absolutely no notice of pedestrians and charge past them spluttering and forcing them to retreat in fear. That is why the marshals are needed. Thank you to them!

To save people the agony of having to deal with a future nightmare with Look After My Bills and Utility Point please read their horrendous reviews on Trustpilot. This is an email I received from Trustpilot this week. People are reading your review!Hi Neil Milkins,You recently wrote a review on Trustpilot and it looks like people find it helpful.117 people have already read your review. LOOK AFTER MY BILLS SHAMBLES.It is now 12 weeks since Look After My Bills without my knowledge or permission changed my energy provider from S.S.E. to Utility Point. Jacqueline Loughman promised me 9 weeks ago that they would resolve the matter within 14 days. A week ago their senior complaints manager Daniel promised me he would phone me on (29-12-20) and have the matter resolved. No phone call and no answer to my emails to him. In the meantime I am going to have a sky high electric and gas bill when this matter is resolved. It is near impossible to get a reply from them once you have emailed and phoned them and it is totally impossible to phone Utility Point as ALL their phone lines have been cut off. I have been on the phone and emailing 19 hours in total trying to sort this mess out. Anyone thinking of going with Look After My Bills or Utility Point please check their horrendous reviews on Trustpilot.

What is the power consumption of the "City Tree" and is it using only renewable electricity? Unless it is powered using electricity only from renewable or nuclear sources this machine (it has a pump, it is a machine) is creating carbon dioxide and particulate matter elsewhere.

This project is bogged down by money disputes. The Gov refuses to recognise as part of a "contribution" the large sums which H&C has already spent on engineers investigating the full extent of the problems, emergency maintainance works to stop the cracks spreading and paying the PLA for boats to stand guard on either side in the river to stop boats trying to go under the bridge. Richmond Council has spent some money putting lighting on the towpath on the Surrey side and other works.Then Baroness Vere said that the councils had to make further "contributions" before the Gov would step up with most of the money for the full permanent repairs. I'm sorry but the Gov is being unreasonable. Neither Council has been reimbursed for Covid expenditure (which they were promised).The ball is in the Gov's court. They have to cough up the £140-odd millions.

In the light of current global events what I am about to mention is trivial but it impressed me!I was in Flanchford Road today. I don't know much about the species of trees but they looked like lime trees to me.The trees lining both sides of the road had obviously been pruned sometime this year. What I found remarkable was that they are all bright green with two foot of new growth, something you would only expect in springtime.Given the the Weather Office only counts December as the start of winter. Has it really been that mild?

How much longer must pedestrians suffer pantechnicons serving Riverside Studios completely blocking the pavement in Crisp Road. The Studios were purpose built at vast expense , and have two very large and very ugly doors that could accomodate the Titanic , yet the management still allow such vehicles to park completely across the pavement forcing pedestrians onto the street.Crisp Road is not their own private service road and it is time that this practise was stopped.

This is a day with no news!City Hall is waging war on the internal combustion engine. The legal limit for nitrogen dioxide and other nitrogen oxides keeps being reduced to justify the eventual aim of forcing drivers of petrol and diesel engine cars off the road.I am not saying that we should keep IC engines for cars for ever - yes, some privately owned electric cars will be needed - but let's be honest about why this story is being written. There is of course LESS pollution than ever before in London: fewer small particulates from diesel, better combustion of hydrocarbons due to electronic ignition and catalytic converters on exhausts. All this technology will be consigned to the museum when we are forced to drive electric cars. People will forget, just as they forget how beautiful and revolutionary Concorde and supersonic air travel was (ended in 2003).

"Hello, I just came from Hong Kong with my wife and little child since the current situation of Hong Kong is getting worse. We are very worried about the future of our child. We would like to get used to the life in UK as early as possible. It would be much thankful if you could share with us the information on the rent or sale of a apartment/house. We are looking for a reasonable price for my family as we do not have much money and only want a simple life here. We are not a second landlord nor property agency.Kindly email me if you had one available or any information. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much. Regards, Timonthy

If you Google Napier Aero Engines Roll of Honour, you will find an A-Z of former employees of the company. Do you have a relative living or now deceased that worked for Napier? Does anyone know if a company based next door to Napier's by the name of Shaw and Kilburn (engineers and coachbuilders) also have a Roll of Honour of former employees? There is no such list on the Internet. I can be contacted via this forum or at firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been informed tonight by one of the actors in Dark Son-The Hunt For A Serial Killer that the 90 minute documentary about Abertillery-born killer Harold Jones and suspected killer of 8 women in the Hammersmith district of London between 1959 and 1965 is again available to watch on I.Player.
