It's #gassafetyweek and Tooting's @happydog_plumbing will be sharing social media updates all week to raise awareness of gas safety. They're also giving away carbon monoxide alarms to everyone they visit this week (Ts & Cs apply). More details on our blog – link in our bio.
How did Tooting Bec & Broadway and Colliers Wood stations get their names (along a host of others on the Northern Line)? We reckon a few Tootingites might already know the answer! Story via @londonist_com – link in our bio.

Thanks so much to Thambi and the team at Saravanaa Bhavan (254 Upper Tooting Rd) for a spectacular South Indian Thali! We especially enjoyed the vatha kuzhabu and will definitely be back soon for more!
Based on Mitcham Lane, Mitcham's Plaice has been serving fish & chips to residents for over 10 years! And owner Huseyin has been in the fish & chip trade for 23 years so knows how to make his customers happy – no wonder the reviews are so good!⠀ ⠀ The shop also used to serve kebabs but Huseyin felt that each deserved its own focus, so he opened the Ottoman Meze & Mangal Kebab shop next door at the start of this year, which is also going down very well with locals.⠀ ⠀ Thanks to Huseyin (second from the right) with his wife Ash, along with Sylvie and Refat from the Ottoman for the picture!
