This month our users have been chatting about moving to the Lavender Fields area of Mitcham, recommendations about a local art tutor for a 10 year old during the summer hols, the local boys prep schools and don't forget our fabulous 9NINE Goodies Box competition (but hurry to enter as it closes on Friday, 21 July!).

#Schoolsoutforsummer is just days away and we've got lots of local activities listed for indoor and outdoor family fun, to suit all ages and budgets, regardless of the yoyoing weather conditions to be expected in the week ahead! Top picks for the next fortnight include:

The Great British Tennis Weekend 2017, 22-23 July (Raynes Park);
The Big Campfire-, 22 July (Morden Hall Park);
Bourbons Coffee Shop Children's Creative Summer Workshop, 25 July, (Morden/Sutton Borders);
The Jungle Book FREE Performance for Families with Children with SEN/ASD, 31 July (Merton Abbey Mills);
Eddie Catz Evening Laser Tag Shoot Out!, 3 August (Colliers Wood);

Have a great month, although guaranteed to be a busy one for those of you with school-age children, with the impending break up from school, holidays just around the corner and getting ready for the new academic year (already?), with possibly a transition to a new school on the cards. It never ends but hopefully there will be some down time and some very happy memories!

Happy holidays!
