This month our users have been chatting about the merits of moving to Morden and Mitcham, the coming-soon Harris Academy Wimbledon (due to open to Year 7 students from September 2018) and a proposed cement plant close to residential areas and schools on the Plough Lane side of the borough.

With yet another half-term and the 'Whit' bank holiday weekend ahead of us, we've got lots of listings for indoor and outdoor family fun to suit all ages and budgets! Top picks for activities to book for your children include:

Clowning & Circus Skills Workshop (for 7-11 year olds), Wed. 31 May (a.m.) with Creative Learning at the New Wimbledon Theatre;
