The watercooler

OK, THIS is the place for general chit-chat.

PLEASE leave 'New subjects' JUST for suggestions of new topics that may, or may not, get posted (and don't run a debate there); it gets difficult for me to manage otherwise. If it gets too much of a pain, I'll just have to close the site down or something.


New subject

If you want to raise a new topic, post your comment here — just click first on Comments below, then type in 'Post a comment' (top right of the next window). Can you choose a title for your post, please? Sometimes it's hard to work out what a comment is about and what the subject is. A new heading will soon be set up, allowing others to see and add their own comments.We try to keep posts civilized. And any posts that become too provocative, insulting, threatening or    otherwise unpleasant will be deleted. 

Please note that the moderator may exercise editorial control, to limit posts to subjects likely to be of interest to the majority of people, so not every topic will be posted (there's always the 'Watercooler' topic for miscellaneous issues/observations/chit-chat), and please use an existing thread to debate issues.

Swanage School (places)

I understand that a number of parents have tried to apply for The Swanage School using the Dorset County Council form - but am told that this form won't reach them, and they won’t be able to guarantee you a place at the school unless you have completed the application form provided by the school.

You can apply via the website at or contact their Admissions Team for a paper application form on 07757 319605 or by emailing
