5 Local Newcomers

We welcome in five newcomers to our local area this month, from a taxi service for your kids to a workshop helping you increase your happiness levels...


If you’ve ever wondered how to be in more than two places at once to meet the demands of your children’s busy lives, the new Kids Minicab Service may be a godsend. Kids Minicab Service is the brainchild of Streatham-based single mother Lyndsey Fyffe, who understands the dilemma of juggling family, work and studying. The service can provide childcare from qualified practitioners in addition to ferrying your little ones to parties, school, clubs and activities.


Serving up modern European dishes from brunch through to dinner, Minnow’s menu is influenced by creativity and seasonality. For a unique and local touch, the cocktails are each named after a Clapham residency, but the décor is somewhat Parisian, with a pastel green frontage, dainty tables and a rose-hung archway. Try salmon marinated in citrus with sapphire or crispy chicken skin served with aioli and a bowl of whelks in garlic butter.

Macellaio RC has opened its fourth branch on Northcote Road in Battersea, where it continues to combine both restaurant and butcher, serving its renowned Fassona beef – butchered and dry-aged on site.

A touch of glamour has come to town in the shape of Henry’s Café Bar, which has recently opened at Charter Quay on Kingston’s riverside on the site of what was the Slug and Lettuce. The bar has a stylish contemporary look with brass servery pendants, reflective wall coverings and Gatsby-style art, and offers everything from classic British craft beer to exotic cocktails. The food menu includes tapas, such as tequila prawns, or classic à la carte dishes such as fish and chips and Gloucester Old Spot sausage.


A new by donation happiness workshop has launched in Wimbledon. The Happiness Workshop, lead by Wimbledon resident Emma Rose, aims to help attendees enhance their well-being and discover their happiest self. “Happiness is the most important part to life and, if we strive for happiness, everything else will fall into place. The workshops will be fun, friendly and interesting and will support you in answering the question; how can I be happiest in life?”
Workshops will take place three times a week in the training rooms at The Prince of Wales, opposite Wimbledon Station – Mondays at 2pm, Tuesdays at 7.30pm and Fridays at 7.30pm.
