    I've just had a call purporting to be from the London Mayor's office (I think!) asking if I would like to comment on crime in London. It's the second call I've had about it and both times I've just hung up. The caller this time had such a strong (probably) Indian accent that I couldn't understand most of what she was saying. Has anyone else had one?

    I've a small patch of ground at top of garden which I want to make into a small nature garden for my grandchildren. It's only about 6ft x 4ft but big enough to get them interested. I'm going to put in some plants that will attract bees/butterflies and I've bought a bug hotel which my grand-daughter can decorate. Planning to fill a shallow stone bowl with stones to make somewhere for bees to get a drink. Any ideas what else I could add to make it interesting?

    Sadiq Khan is considering charging motorists to enter Greater London. Not really fair on those who live outside the London area but work inside it. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/dec/11/khan-considering-350-daily-charge-for-drivers-entering-london. Any thoughts?

    I was told recently that you can now make your own Will online and submit it to a Solicitor for checking. I think it would be ok if you just wanted to leave everything to a partner and don't have children etc but any more complicated than that and I'd rather get it done professionally. I made my years ago with a local solicitor. Thoughts everyone?

    I'm in a support bubble with my sister who is unable to go out without assistance. I go and see her every week at least once but, apart from a few Sundays last summer, she hasn't left her flat since March. Am I allowed at this time to bring her to my house for lunch or am I only permitted to go to her?

    No I haven't got a new cat but I've spotted one in the garden which I've not seen before, not in the garden or anywhere else. It's a very pale gold colour all over and quite short hair. I've looked at cat breeds on line but can't see anything quite like it. Any ideas what it might be?

    I can't seem to see much information re what you should do if you feel you might not be able to have the Pfizer vaccine. I'm a bit concerned about one of my sons having it because when he was younger he had some very bad reactions to different foods and had to go an on a strict exclusion diet. These days he avoids certain foods in case he has a reaction and, even then, still regularly needs piriton because he comes out in spots/hives. I'm thinking he should really be contacting the Drs and seeing what they advise. Has anyone read anything more specific?

  • Had this text forwarded to me ........ As we all know the past year has been an extremely difficult one and we have all been impacted by this pandemic in a number of different ways. As a school we are even more aware of these impacts as we have students who come from a diverse range of backgrounds and we want to make sure that everybody feels supported during this incredibly challenging time. We are very pleased to announce that due to the very hard work of the staff here at The Ravensbourne School, we are now in a position to launch our very own food bank. We know that many of you will be anxious to donate to our food bank. However, we ask that you only make a donation whilst passing the school as part of an essential journey and not make specific trips to donate. If you do wish to donate there will be storage units inside the main doors of the main reception but outside of the glass doors, this is to ensure that contact is minimalised within school. Food storage bins will be placed into isolation for a set period before being placed into general food bank storage. For those wanting to make a donation, they will be accepted Monday to Friday 8am-12pm. All items must be non-perishable. The list that follows is only suggestions and not extensive: cereal, tins of beans/spaghetti/tomatoes, pasta, rice or noodles, cooking sauce, tinned fruit and vegetables, spreads like jam, honey etc., bread sticks/ crackers, UHT milk, juices, tea and coffee. We also suggest items such as: deodorants, shower gels, shampoos etc and essential baby items too like formula, nappies and wipes. All items that are donated will be stored at room temperature in specific areas in a set room. Due to this any item requiring temperature control unfortunately cannot be accepted. There will be a clear separation between new donations and stock that is ready to be issued. Regular stock takes will occur to ensure that all items have at least a 7 day use by date, this will also be adhered to by staff when accepting donations. It is also important to mention that when handling donations all staff will follow the appropriate government guidelines. We would like to thank Tesco and Sainsburys Bromley for their very kind donations which have been extremely valuable in establishing the stock we currently have. In addition, a massive thank you has to be said to the players and staff of Bromley FC who themselves donated in great volume and we are very grateful to everyone for their ongoing support with our project as we endeavour to give back to our school community. Yours faithfully Lewis Knox, Head Boy & The Student Leadership Team

    I've just seen a post on FB from a clinic offering free spine checks this Saturday. They are asking people to book up and go to the clinic. We are only supposed to be going out if absolutely necessary. Unless you're in dreadful pain and can't get any help I can't see it's necessary right at this moment.

    Judging by the traffic and people out and about, very few people are bothered that we're supposed to be in Tier 4. Cars are going through our road more often than jets land at Heathrow (normally!).

    When I bought my pc I understood they were no longer made with wifi cards and I would need to use a powerline which I've been doing. Just recently our internet has been quite unpredictable at times and it keeps dropping out. I've had to turn the powerline on and off multiple times and now it's just not working. The weird thing is I still have the internet and the bar is showing that I'm connected through wifi. I've looked at device manager, checked the connection to the internet and looked at hardware but cannot figure out how I'm still connected to the internet as none of it shows any type of card. It's not exactly a problem as it's working really well but I'd like to figure out what's happening.

    Dear Resident, Good News - but don’t drop your guard! I write at the end of the week where we have emerged from ‘Lockdown’ and have since received confirmation that a long-awaited vaccine has passed its tests and is now ready to go. Both represent absolutely fantastic news and offer cause for celebration that we are now fast approaching the end of the most depressing period most of us have ever had to endure, even if being placed into ‘Tier 2’ wasn’t perhaps what many of us were hoping for or might have preferred. As we enter the weekend and run up to Christmas buoyed by both, there will be an understandable natural temptation to relax in the belief the worst has passed. Please, whatever you do, do not fall into that trap because it very sadly hasn't necessarily done so. I regret to have to inform you that the situation locally is still looking far less rosy than any of us would prefer, as well, that in recent days, our infection numbers have returned to and remain stubbornly stuck at their highest levels yet. This is not all bad news, nor cause for panic, given that we are testing more people, as well that our comparative infection rate per 100,000 continues to compare reasonably well to other Boroughs (although there has been some slippage of late) but the message is extremely clear. Covid isn’t beaten yet, not by a very long stretch, and every single one of us remains a key player with personal responsibility to prevent its spread, in a very deadly race against time until the vaccine has been supplied to those most at risk and are protected from its ravages. I have been asked by Bromley’s Director of Public Health to briefly mention two groups of people causing them a degree of concern at present, as they appear to be contributing to the ongoing number of cases being recorded. Firstly, parents at the school gate. I’m sure that most of you do already, but if you could think more about ‘Social Distancing’ at all times, it would really be helpful please. Secondly, to those self-isolating, as tough and unpleasant an experience as it may be, it means, with every due respect, self-isolate. Nipping round the corner to do a bit of shopping for example, is not self-isolating and defeats the whole object of the exercise. Please also use the Council’s website or call our Assistance Team on: 020 8313 4484 and we will be able to assist you, without you needing to leave your home and by so doing putting others at risk. Bromley residents, we’ve come a very long way together as a Borough these past nine months at considerable cost and sacrifice. Lost lives, lost jobs, lost businesses, lives changed forever through no fault of anyone and we are now finally in sight of the finishing line. Please, let’s stick at this resolutely together until the very bitter end and do the right thing by those who need us most. If we continue to follow basic hygiene rules, wear a mask where requested to, keep a safe distance from others outside of our ‘bubble’ in a few months’ time the current hardship and cycle of restrictions will be over and our recovery to whatever passes as the new normal underway. Thank you for everything you’ve done so far, thank you in anticipation for staying the course. One more shove and we’re there. With my kindest regards and very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Councillor Colin P. Smith, Leader of the Council London Borough of Bromley
