Cyclists stage ''die-in''

About 1,000 cyclists took part in a so called ''die-in'' protest last night outside Transport for London's HQ in Southwark.

It's in a call for the Government to improve cycle road safety in the city.

The vigil follows the deaths of six cyclists killed in a two-week period, including 43 year old Roger William De Klerk outside East Croydon station.

Organisers want 10% of each London borough's transport budget to be spent on cycling infrastructure.

TfL maintains it is spending £1bn.

Chipping day in Croydon

Earlier this year, the Government announced that all dogs in England must be microchipped by April 2016.

To support and promote the vital initiative, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is working with housing association Amicus Horizon to offer free microchipping, name tag engraving and advice about responsible dog ownership at its Canine Care Days on Wednesday at the Queens Community Centre in Croydon.

More than 65% of all dogs arriving at Battersea are not microchipped and the charity believes being able to identify dogs will help to reduce the problem of stray dogs.

Did you know the man in the well?

Detectives have now identified a man whose body was discovered in a well in Warlingham on the 15th of November.

Officers are satisfied the deceased is Damian Chlywka, a 32 year old Polish national who came to the UK in 2008.

Police have also made two further arrests for murder.

Two men aged 41 and 33, were arrested yesterday and taken into custody at South London police stations. They have now been bailed to return on a date in mid-January, pending further investigation.

Police were called after workmen discovered his body in a well outside an address in Audley Drive.

Specialist officers, including Metropolitan Police divers, attended the scene and recovered Damian's body which had sustained injuries consistent with an assault, prior to being placed in the well.

Mr Chlywka's body was bound before being placed in the well and it is believed he had been there for around two years.

A post-mortem examination did not provide a cause of death and further tests are being conducted.

Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons, who leads the investigation, said: "Damian had lived at various addresses across London including two known to be in the Croydon area. At one point he had lived at 11A Audley Drive.''

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4961 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Surrey Charity offers Christmas advice
Relate says Christmas can be fabulous, but when you’re celebrating with others it’s sometimes difficult to make sure that everyone’s happy.

Councillors say; We all have different expectations of what makes a perfect Christmas and it’s important to make sure you think about this before the big day comes around. Try to make it clear right from the start that you might not be able to please everybody.

What you want

We’re not just talking presents here. It sounds obvious, but unless you know what would make the perfect Christmas for you, you can’t expect anyone else to guess. For some people, the perfect Christmas is quiet, snug and cosy – for others, it needs to be a full house! Take a bit of time to work it out, and don’t be afraid to assert yourself.

What others want

Asking for lists from your nearest and dearest will help with your shopping, but it goes deeper than that. Whether you’re celebrating with one other person or the whole clan, it’s a good idea to do a bit of asking around first to find out what sort of Christmas people want. The only way you can come up with something to suit everyone is to find out what people really think makes a good Christmas Day for them. If you have kids, why not get a big sheet of paper, divide it into sections and get them to draw pictures of what they most love about Christmas.

The middle ground

This is the tricky bit! If you’re very lucky, you might have found that everyone you’re celebrating with has the same idea for a perfect Christmas. If so, enjoy it! But if not, the key is to make sure everyone has a little bit of what they want.

Follow these tips for communicating about Christmas:

· Keep talking and being honest.

· Don’t overpromise – if something is impractical, or too expensive, it’s ok to explain why it can’t happen.

· Try to compromise. For example, your partner might want to spend a cosy Christmas alone together, whereas you might want to be with your family. Compromise by waking up together and having a special breakfast before joining the family for Christmas dinner.

· If someone’s wishes can’t be accommodated, explain why and see if it’s possible to do something similar at a later date.
