I'm looking for a local seamstress or tailor to do a little invisible mending and replace a zip on a dress.
If anyone could recommend one I'd be very grateful.
Please post here or let me know on
60 yards from Tower Bridge station there is a place where you can Draw, Draw and draw for about £5 a head for 3 hours. As long as I bring a few friends sometime and nothing else because we share the cost. Yesterday the model was a formidable Brazilian curvy and flexible model, the music was so relaxing, tony was so attentive and helpful, people so friendly, poses amazing and beer on the tap, I simply wonder if It wasn't a dream. Today I went to meetup.com/lifedrawingsociety and it wasn't they do it everywhere in London in absolutely perfect locations.
I had to let you know, let's bring our pencils and change the world to a better one.

Borough is great, i'm a female and have never felt threatened. I live in Lant Street (since March 07) and previously near the tate modern for 5 years, I have never had a problem.
caryn (Except that our bikes have been knicked twice now!)
A rip off price wise, not very authentic, definitely been to far better japanese restaurants in London and of course Japan!
Riots by sad case Milwall supporters, theft is quite prominent too, but other than that, we love it.

is a great place. It's extremley central and is so close to everything. I dont live there but i work in Eelphant and Castle ( live near Angel) but i socilise after work and have friends that live nearby.
If would have no hesitation about buying or renting near Borogh. The loal authorty, LB Sothwark is spending millions on regenerating the E&C including parts of Borough. But like any part of London you just need to have your wits about you and be careful.
I moved to a flat on Long Lane 2 months ago and feel just as safe as i did in a leafy bit of north london. more police walking around and people walking to/from work until late in the evening so you're never on your own. Enjoy living there - i'm loving it so far.
We are a not-for-profit environmental, nature and lifestyle (not activist, illegal or anything like that!!!) and looking for a meeting room (once or twice a month) for 5-15 people anywhere in Central London.

Borough is one of the few place that I see young female walking around on thier own on a night time. I live near the tube station. I hope you will be safe. If you are looking to boarden your socail life plaese contact me.
Hi I am thinking of moving to Borough soon close to the tube station. Is it safe to walk around this area at night? Any other pointers good or bad about living in this area? (Lant street in particular). Cheers.
Looking 4 a Wu Shu Kwan class week time preferably
anyone know of any if u could email me please!!
does anyone know of a place i can get my eyebrows waxed in west croydon. thanks
But they have a very small catchment area. However,they will be able to give you a list of doctors if they will not be able to accept you.
Hi does, anyone know of a decent gym that's not too expensive in the Hackey area.....???
Hi - Anyone know of a gym that allows circuit training in Bermondsey and is not too dodge or expensive?
the borough is great i was born in guy's and lived in that area for most of my life it is an area that is so full of life. it has history, nite life, great food, great people what more could you ask for. i come back most weekends as all my family still live there. one of the only areas left in london that still knows what community means.
....but have to agree with Peter. So far I have discovered Borough Market, the dried fruit and choccy things in London Bridge Station, walked a million hot miles from bridge to bridge, but have still to find new friends. I love this London Forum, but, does anyone answer anyone? Remember, nation shall speak unto nation! Jacqui.
I am aslo looking for a team in southwark/borough...i am looking 5 a side...nothing too serious.... email me if you hear anything.....
Great for students, near good night life & night buses, good transport (Borough & London Bridge), close to supermarkets (Old Kent Road & Elephant and Castle). Near King's College, LSE & Southbank unis.
is there any borough gym near South Kensington tube station?
Borough train st is packed during the weekday stay away if you can dont forget its the next stop to elephant and castle and london bridge
yes - if you are able to register (ie in the right postcode) the Princess St Group Practice on Princess st at the Elephant is second to none. They have a lot of services offered and the staff are v.helpful
Group Practice in Princes Street near to Elephant and Castle - < 10 min walk from Borough tube - friendly staff, I have always been seen immediately by a doctor the 5 or so times i have been.
Hi - does anyone know a good doctor around SE1? Thanks
Does anyone know where I can get threading (not waxing!) done at a decent price?
Very good indeed.
Excellent Modern Banglashi restaurant directly under Borough Market. Small & well cooked menu - much better than a bog standard Indian restaurant
which is very close to borough tube.
average selection of dvds and video tapes available.
alternatively if you do have dvd player and rent over 6 movies per month try the new webbased service called lovefilm.com
Is there a good gym near to Borough Tube? I know of Fitness First and Fitness Exchange up nr London Bridge but am looking for something closer to the tube station - pref near Gt Dover St. Tks!
Can anyone tell me where the closest video store is to Borough High Street?
Incredibally close and conveniant to the city and central London but still very local feeling. Greatest place in the world IMHO.
Weird opening times and as are most NHS practices in London full of completely batty, incredibally rude and down right scary receptionists. But v. v. good doctors and nice converted wigwam hut feel.
Is just up the street to the station. Or if you've got a bit more to spend, a 5 min walk will talk you to City Cannons just across Blackfriars Bridge. £80 a month will get three pools, sauna, steam room, free towels, and a very attractive converted warehouse interior to sweat away in. Watch your valuables though the staff have been know to have itchy fingers. (So keep those iPods in visible distance, and always lock your locker).
Use to be a problem this until end of 2003 when the good old Orange's converted an office block into a very well stocked supermarket. More humous than scrambeled egg, and far more tagiatelli than bubble and squeak, but hey. I noticed people tend to go here particularly during heat waves because they've got the best publically accessible air conditioning on the street (Borough High Street that is just after the Blue Maid).
Hope on the Jubilee line and get out at Bermondsey. 5 min walk down MD Dental. V. good dentist. Extremmly well equipped.
… on Stoney St. Full of yocal farmers from the market!
Not too posh like some places up North, not too scummy like some places down South. Not too artsy like Hoxton, but plenty of culture. Specifics include: Menier Theatre, The Wheatsheaf, The George, The Globe, The Market Porter, Neal's Yard, Monmouth Coffee and a fantastic new French place near Southwark Cathedral… anyone prompt me on the name? (And of course the Borough Market… heaving on Saturdays but paradise on Fridays)
Fish so fresh you could slap em! (And they're not paying me to say it)
It depends which direction you are traveling in. Northbound - quite busy, can be packed. Southbound - generally quiet. Can get a seat most of the time.
I use them every day sometimes twice a day and they are always on time and courteous. 0207 394 0000
