Wombles, Wimbledon Common, Cheese & Wine Tasting, Wine School

Fellow Wine Lovers,

A quick scan of this week’s news reveals politicians engaged in more yah, boo, sucks behaviour with particular “told you so” directed at Michael Gove, a dysfunctional NHS due to continual meddling and a targets culture, and another drugs cheat scandal, this time in Australia. Oh and we’re descended from rodents…

In more local news, it is with a huge gladness in our hearts that we wish the Wombles a happy 40th birthday this week. They have been providing service to the good folk of the area keeping Wimbledon Common ship shape and litter free since 1973. Thank you, and Happy Birthday.

Talking of local news…
