Metropolitan Security

Looking for a new home and worried about the current condition of the property you want to buy? Looking for a professional’s eye in the matter? Metropolitan Security Services Ltd. provides one of the best, quick, and cheapest vacant building inspection (VPI) services available, we provide reliable services on short-notice and aim to satisfy our consumers with what THEY want.

Services Ltd.) provide VPI services for as low as £10 a visit which includes various services in the package whose reports will be forwarded electronically within 24 hours or less, providing our esteemed consumers with agile and reliable service. Following is the detailed information about our services in the VPI sector: External Inspection:

Many properties in London are prone to attract damaging elements to themselves such as deterioration, pipeline hazards from prolonged abandonment, oil and gas leakages, security issues such as deteriorated or improper fencing caused by non-existent maintenance and threats of invasion or breakins due to broken windows and unwanted entrances. Vacant Building Inspection is a process where we will check every single entity and element of the abandoned property you are willing to buy or even if it’s a regular-checkup, VPI service ensures that your properties are safe and secure before you decide to do anything with them or move-in with your family. Many reports have suggested that in the past, many home-owners reported severe damage to domestic services like gas and electricity connections and some had oil and gas hazards which can prove to be extremely dangerous for the tenants and the surroundings, we (Metropolitan Security


External inspections include all the elements that relate to the outside environment of the property. Threats/attempts of breach: Many properties are often prone to breaches by burglars and people with evil intentions to scavenge the abandoned property, we check the premises all around the house to ensure that there have been no attempts to breach the property by burglars or other entities. If any such case is identified, our professionals are required to report it immediately. This checkup also includes the threat of aggressive animals taking shelter in the abandoned property who may have gotten access via a broken window or an opening somewhere in the house, this is also checked and reported in the check-list provided to our consumers.


Rooms and Quarters:

Many properties are prone to vandalism in the form of graffiti art on private property, these are also marked and reported back to the owners of the property in a structured form.

Rooms and quarters in a property are individually inspected to mark out various elements that may depict signs of deterioration and/or non-existent maintenance, these include check-up of several elements such as intact walls, conditions of doors and windows, heating and air conditioning units, seepage from walls/roof and other general elements that may have an impact on the property.

Fencing/External doors and gates: Fencing is also observed to determine its state and the level of deterioration and if it may require maintenance or overall replacement, this is done because fencing serves as an essential part of the external surroundings of a certain property. Similarly, external gates are also checked to determine their condition similar to fencing and whether they require replacement or maintenance. Roof tiles/gutters and such openings:

Cellars/Basements: Cellars or basements alike are checked for water leakages and whether they are dry or not, either of the conditions are reported in the check list is then finalized and sent off electronically to the consumer of our service.

This area of inspection is inclined towards checking the roof tiles which can pose a risk of falling/sliding if not maintained over a long period of time, this is checked thoroughly throughout the roof. External gutters and drainage pipes leading from the roof downwards are inspected and examined for any sort of blockage that may be temporary or require professional cleansing.

Utility Services:

Meter Readings: All the concurrent meters of water, electricity and gas are observed and readings are jotted and delivered to the home-owners in the final report.

All the above services stated are performed by experienced professionals excelling in their field of work. We, Metropolitan Security Services Ltd. Ensure a bond of trust with our client based upon the quality of services we provide for as low as £10 per visit

Making sure the utility services are off can save the owner of the property a ton of trouble, utility services like electricity, water, and gas are checked to identify whether they are off or not. Either of the cases are mentioned in the report and will be delivered to our esteemed consumer within 24 hours.

Chemical Hazards: Chemical hazards such as oil and gas leakages that may prove to be dangerous and/or fatal to the human life are thoroughly inspected around the house with stateof-the-art equipment and if found, they are marked accordingly in the house and reported as a higher-priority in the final electronic report. Chemical hazards include all sort of hazardous materials and are not limited to just oil and gas.


Prepping for big school Starting school is a crucial stage in any child’s development. At the best of times, it can be a daunting prospect for our little ones, but given the last 18 months has been a completely unprecedented and unsettling time for everyone, this year could be particularly tricky! I know as a parent myself that I’m starting to feel the anxiety creeping in too. I’m currently experiencing this with my own daughter, who will be starting reception this September. Normally a confident and outgoing little thing, she is in complete denial that she will be leaving the safety of her beloved nursery class and making that huge leap into reception.

I thought it would be helpful to share some additional tips of the things I’m doing with my own daughter, alongside reading her the book, to make sure starting school is the exciting adventure it should be!

This has been where the inspiration for my new book, ‘Mystic Bunny Boy Steps Out Of Time’ came from. The story is about ‘first day of school nerves’ and includes a simple calming technique that children can easily learn and apply to any situation that makes them feel anxious. I’ve been practising this with my little one, subtly giving her the tools to help calm her and prepare her in the best way I know how.

Visualising with your child what school will actually be like is a great place to start. Lots of schools offer a settling in sessions, so it’s a good idea to take your child then talk afterwards about the experience - it will give them a good sense of what might happen on their first day. I know this may not be possible at the moment due to social distancing, but if you can it’s really important to attend these so your child can meet the teachers, make friends and get a feel for the place. Talk about the journey to school and what they will need to remember to pack in their school bag. The more a child talks about the whole experience of being at school the more they will have practised it in their minds, and the more confident they will feel.

1. Get talking

2. Make friends Making new friends can often be a huge challenge. It’s good to remind your


child that others may also be feeling a bit unsure and so saying hello, smiling and asking another child if they want to play is a good place to start. Over the summer holidays, why not try to create opportunities to practice this in the park, or when going to summer social activities. It is also a great idea to connect with local community groups and find other families in the same situation that you meet up with to make sure your little one has a friendly face on their first few days.

3. Establish good routines

Remember, labelling clothing and equipment will also help children feel Creating good habits during the holidays that they know what belongs to them, will really help. It’s also a nice idea to and will help them feel organised. have a calendar that gives your child a visual reminder of how many weeks/ 5. Walk the walk days are left before they start school. A good night time routine is a great Get your child familiar with the morning example: bedtime routines that include routine and journey. Get up and ready, a chat about the day will help your child and ‘practise’ going to school, talking develop a way of reflecting on the day – to them about what they can see along which will be an important tool for both the way. You can turn this into a game, of you once they start school. perhaps making a map and getting your child to draw/find certain landmarks along the way. All of this preparation will help your child feel confident in the run up to their first day, and will help them feel that this new experience is one that they can manage and enjoy. I hope you and your child find these tips useful. And if you’d like a copy of the book as an additional settling in aid for your child, it can be purchased via

4. Get things ready Help your child to make a list of the things they will need for school – you can even make a game of finding some of them around the house. Then, plan a shopping trip to buy everything.

Wishing us all a smooth, calm and exciting transition.

The importance of building your community Jodie Webber - Bob Marketing for The Businesses Community

Running your own business can be tough, it can be lonely, it can be exciting, it can be challenging, it can be rewarding... it can be soooo many things! Chuck into the mix the fact that you are also juggling the responsibility of bringing up a well-rounded little person (or little people) and there’s one hell of a lot of pressure, plate spinning (sometimes smashing!), juggling, prioritising, feeling amazing, feeling inadequate, feeling…. Well, the whole spectrum! In this day and age where we are told by the media we can ‘have it all’, it’s no wonder that many parents are rejecting the return to work and being bold… stepping out into the world of business for themselves. And if that is you – big


congratulations and well done! The problem (in my opinion) is, our media only seems to report the success stories, and it’s only once you decide to embark on your new journey into the world of running your own business, that you realise it’s not enough to have a fantastic idea and see the gap in the market. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to scare you! Having your own business is utterly fantastic (one of the best feelings in the world!). But in the same way as being a parent, it can also be daunting, exhausting, frustrating, over-whelming, throw you curve balls, and at times you might question what you are doing! There’s an African proverb that says ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ meaning that a community of people must interact with children for them to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment… And the same can be said of starting your business! As parents, we rely on a whole support network of people when we start out (and as we grow)… from family members, midwives, friends, neighbours, nursery teachers, baby groups – the list goes on! Why then, when you start your own business

do you think that you should be able to take everything on yourself? Networking, building business relationships, and being part of a ‘business community’ is such invaluable support when you are in the early days of business. It’s great to have a community to share, support, advise and celebrate with! And once you have a connection with other local businesses, you will find that you not only have a ‘village’ you can turn to for advice, help and support, but also a minimarketing team, that will shout your praises, offer you referrals, and promote you to others. There are so many networking groups and business forums out there, you will find one that suits

you as a person, and your business… you just need to find it! If you are thinking about starting out in business or are a relatively young business, I highly recommend looking for a group (or groups) to connect with. Much the same as parenting, we were all new to it once, and needed the help and guidance that the ‘village’ can offer – people are more than happy to share their experiences and expertise – you just need to ask!

10 Things About Dance That Make Us Smile! 1. Number 1 has to be the music when Wham’s Wake Me Up Before You Go Go comes on – you’ve just gotta dance to it 2. The fact that dance will never date, be boring or run out of moves! 3.

The fact that everyone can dance! Even if they say they have two left feet – everyone has their own way of dancing.

I just love to dance – even though I am not a “dancer” – I feel like I am!



The fact I’ve made so many new friends through dance – it’s a very sociable experience.

5 Questions We Asked An Enfield Business We caught up with Gavin Wybrow of The Brandit to find out why he started his own business and what “floats his boat” in the world of graphic design Gav, we hear you’ve been a graphic designer for over 36 years? Yep, wow that sounds insane when you say that! Yep, I’ve loved graphics since I studied at Watford College. I come from a very creative family - my Dad is a retired graphic artist and worked with the likes of the Hilton Hotel, Lentheric and Pears Soap. My brothers are both in the printing industry, my niece is a graphic designer too and my cousin teaches art - so I guess it’s in the blood. What do you love most about your “job”? I have to confess that I love creating logos, branding and creative concepts - working with clients to understand what they want to achieve, and helping them to do just that through simple, yet effective, visual


communications. I also love the fact that I work with a diverse range of clients - so it never gets monotonous. What made you start The Brandit? Having worked with my wife, Sue Wybrow, on the creation of Enfield Businesses branding, which became The Businesses Community Enfield, Popdance and Dance News Worldwide, I knew that many start up businesses could not afford a lot of marketing agency’s fees.

THE I wanted to give all sizes of businesses the opportunity to present themselves in a professional way and to create the look and feel that interpreted what they offered and the solutions they gave to their clients. The Brandit works with lots of different sized businesses - from start ups to large corporates - and the journey is the same in terms of working together to create the perfect logo or communications for that company.

So what do you like to do when you are not designing? Ooh I’m partial to a local public house, We are very lucky to have so many to choose from in Enfield. I also love my 1958 Vespa Scooter - it’s great to get the wind in my hair every now and then (which is very difficult as I have no hair and wear a scooter helmet)!

And I love spending time with So, being a graphic designer, my gorgeous family (Sue told me what famous brands do you like to write that) that are out there? I really like Levi - the red tag, the simplicity of it, the fact that it’s grown to be a huge brand internationally. I like to keep things simple.

IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre is turning 19 and to celebrate our birthday, we’re holding a Birthday Weekend Walk! Over the weekend of the 20th – 22nd August we’re asking people to go on a walk and show their support for those affected by cancer. We’d love for you to take part and help us help all those that live with cancer and the devastating impact it can have on their lives.

WHERE? The short answer is; anywhere! You can walk wherever you’d like. In your favourite park, along your high street or even in your garden.

HOW FAR SHOULD I WALK? We’re suggesting a 10k walk, but if you would like to walk a shorter or longer distance, we don’t mind, as long as you’re comfortable and having fun.


Did you know that walking 10,000 steps per day means you walk roughly 8k?! We bet you didn’t think it would be that easy to walk that far. So if you don’t want to go for one solid walk, you could chose to dedicate your 10,000 steps over 20th-22nd August to The Nightingale. We even have some suggested walking routes around different parts of Enfield. You can find them here

WHY SHOULD I WALK? In the UK statistics currently indicate that one in two people will be diagnoses with cancer at some point in their lives, suggesting that most people will be affected by cancer in some way. We want to be here to help as many of them as possible come to terms with and deal with their changed lives. Through registrations, sponsorships

HOW DO I TAKE PART? You can take your first step today and sign up to our Birthday Weekend Walk, get a sponsorship form or donate to The Nightingale by visiting birthdaywalk/.

Calling 020 8366 9674 Emailing: fundraising@ Once you register we’ll be with you every step of the way. We’ll send you suggested walking routes, playlists to get you in the walking mood and a few surprises in the lead up to the big birthday!

and donations we’re hoping to raise £9,000 which could pay for two complementary therapists to come to the centre for a whole year, delivering nearly 600 massage and reflexology sessions to clients!


Our Birthday Weekend Walk is one of the most important events we will hold this year. The Nightingale relies solely on external fundraising and doesn’t receive any government funding, so it’s events like this that mean we can continue to provide all of our services free of charge. After a difficult year of no events or fundraising, we’re looking forward to our supporters and community helping us out in a big way!


Tell us your story! We want to know about what you enjoy about Enfield • What you like doing in Enfield? • Your favourite places in Enfield? • Your business in Enfield • Your entrepreneurs who have perhaps just started a business • And charities in Enfield (did you know that charities get free membership with TBC!)

5 Questions We Asked An Enfield Business We caught up with Bridgette Mansfield, a hypnotherapist in Grange Park, to ask her our 5 “famous” questions: Hi Bridgette, so, what got you interested in hypnotherapy in the first place?

Also, during this past year, we know that people have struggled with their mental health and increased anxiety, do you have any simple tips they could implement to help with that?
