The Creatures of an Hour

school holidays

Our song is done, we must be gone,
No longer can we stay.
God bless you all, both great and small,
And we wish you a happy day.

On the 1 and 3 August 2014, a team lead by the Thames Landscape Strategy and SWLEN will be cutting back some of the plants that have encroached on the path and reducing the view of the river. Conserving the biodiversity is of high concern though, so don’t worry about losing important beasties and flora!

Event Reminder: St Margarets Fair - 12 July 2014

St Margarets Fair coming soon 2014

Don’t miss the highlight of the summer.

  • a full programme of entertainment throughout the day,
  • starting with a popular children’s ‘5-a-side’ football tournament in the morning on Moormead.
  • During the afternoon there is a dog show on little Moormead across Hillview Road.
  • The musical entertainment runs all afternoon on the stage, and we moved the stage further away from the tea tent to help separate the ‘rock’ from the rolls.
  • There are announcements, interviews and music throughout the day from Radio West Middlesex.

Borough Camp July - 5 to 6 July 2014

Scouts 2012
If you wondered why the streets seemed less crowded than usual last weekend or the parks and football pitches less busy it was because nearly 1000 young people from around these parts – boys and girls – were away camping with the Scouts. For over 30 years one weekend early in July has been designated “Borough Camp” for the young members of the Richmond scout district, and it is usually run at Walton Firs Scout Activity Centre near Cobham. With a slew of exciting and sometimes demanding challenges like caving, climbing, football, archery, rounders and the weirdly named ‘crate stacking’ it attracts young people from as far east as Barnes and as far west as Teddington and Hampton.
