I received an email on Sunday from the Parkerilla to say that he'd been in Motspur Park and that the neigbourhood had been without water because of a problem in Wimbledon on one of the hottest days of the year. Lo and behold the BBC News site explains that there was a burst water main in Merton High Street which affected 15,000 people in Wimbledon, Merton, Kingston and as far out as Surbiton. It's not like Worcester Park to miss out on the chance of a good old-fashioned utility failure given the electrical and water issues of the semi-distant past but we do seem to have dodged that one. Thank goodness for Sutton Water.........

In Worcester Park I'm pleased to see that the remaining unit of the old Choices video shop, next to the new Papa Johns, has got the fitters in so I'm keen to see what's going in though, this being Worcester Park, I am restraining my enthusiasm in case it turns out to be yet another charity shop.
Lastly if you want to get a whiff of my latest family-based article for the Worcester Park Life before the printed version comes out in a weeks time then you can read about some of things we do with the Brinkster Clan in and around Worcester Park that don't cost the earth .
