No-one can fail to have noticed that we are about to be blessed with yet another coffee shop, this time one 49% owned by Tesco.
I can't help but feel that this will tip the balance in St Margarets and take enough clients away from other coffee shops and restaurants as to make them unviable.
A shop like H+H is great on a high street where it is competing against Costa or Starbucks, but not against smaller outlets.
That said, at least one person I have spoken to has said that while they support this in principle, the H+H coffee is exceptionally good, and that local cafes should strive to up their game, so it may come down to a straight commercial fight (or a blind tasting competition!)
On balance, I would rather persuade them not to open here (a campaign in Whitstable has done just that), and devote their energies to a big high street that can support them. Then the Superdrug site could be used for a shop or shops that we don't have.
If you agree, please write direct to the H+H Chief Exec at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them @HarrisandHoole - Please use the hashtag #HHGoHome

Wednesday 19th June
7pm, public meeting about the deer cull in the Royal Parks.
Richard Mayo Centre, Eden Street Kingston upon Thames KT1 1HZ
Please can any more of the locals help with this event? I have one of my local councillors coming, have invited local MPs and Royal Parks (who have declined) and am aiming to invite in the public.
I would have been happy to debate the Royal Parks about ending the cull, but they bravely ran away..
The main help I need is a few more ppl to do the leg work around the Kingston area (and any other suburbs around the parks) delivering hundreds of door to door leaflets to help get the word out about this meeting.
email@example.com or 020 8941 8075 or 07931 156006
This is real long shot.... I used to live at 15 Hartington Rd back in the 70's. I had wonderful childhood playing with all the other kids in the street. Great times!
I distinctly remember a street party for the Silver Jubilee. I was wondering if anyone out there has any photos of the event?
I am a student at Royal Holloway, University of London studying an MA in Public History.
For my dissertation I would like to do an Oral History project about those who experienced WW2 within the Richmond Borough. Whether you served in the conflict, were an evacuee or know someone who has memories of the period please contact me at,
I embroider and knit a bit but recently, feeling in need of a change, I decided to try my hand at patchwork and quilting. It has proved to be a very interesting and rewarding hobby. It is also obvious that when it comes to quilting, it is a pastime which is very much suited to being a group activity. (Many hands make light work etc).
You do not have to make bed quilts you can make small objects too - with lots of learn. Some people still like geometric patterns while modern quilts are often "fabric art" and used more as wall hangings. There is a lot of scope.
So I was wondering if anyone was interested in forming a St Margarets quilting bee locally? The idea would be to get together at regular intervals to work on our projects. I am not an experienced quilter so if there is someone out there who is who could advise us, so much the better. (We are well placed locally as there are shops in Kew and East Molesey where you can buy quilting supplies or of course online.)
All ages and both sexes welcome. Hand or machine stitchers. If you are interested please respond and I will see about getting something up and running.
Sorry should have added my email contact for those interested. (Can't get edit function to work to add it to original post). So for those interested in finding out more, please contact me at t firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put Quilting Bee in the subject line.
