Picnic For The Queen's 90th Birthday

IMG 1357

On Sunday 12th June Stamford Brook held a wonderful community picnic to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday. As the whole country celebrated the event Birthday with street parties, lunches and picnics, we held our own picnic in celebration with local families and friends.

The gathering was an informal affair with games and fun for local families at the heart of the activities.  We held sack,egg and spoon and three-legged races. But the highlight of the afternoon was the highly competitive 'Throw The Welly' competition, which went on late into the rain.

 

The rain just about held off to the later stages but the hardy types of Stamford Brook sat through them all with brollies at the ready. By the time the rain arrived, the afternoon was finished off with a rousing sing song under the trees!

Three hundred Chiswick and West London residents gathered in St Michael and All Angel’s Church at Turnham Green for our 'No3rdRunway' Meeting.  Organised in co-operation with Chiswick Against the Third Runway (CHATR) the meeting was Chaired by ex BBC journalist and Bedford Park Resident, Torin Douglas.  Local MPs, Ruth Cadbury and Rupa Huq joined the packed meeting on the eve of the Backbench debate today on the final report of the Airports Commission.

John Stewart, the key note speaker, warned that “the impact on the local area will be devastating. Chiswick will be right under the new flight path. Around 725,000 people will be directly affected.” He explained the worrying implications for more noise and pollution in the area and explained that it is not too late to take action. Now “is not the end of our fight but the start,” he said.

Weekly Bin Collection Review

The Local Council, London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, has suggested ending weekly bin collections to save money, moving to a bi-weekly or other arrangement.  They have launched a consultation (on their website here) into reducing refuse collections and street cleaning across the borough. We would recommend all Residents look at the site to see what the Council are proposing.

Early informal responses from Residents indicate that Residents believe that weekly collections are a basic council service and they should look for savings elsewhere.  To support them, Cllr Charlie Dewhirst and Gred Smith are leading the resistance to the change with information online here.  They have created an online petition here which we would encourage you and your neighbours to sign before the end of the consultation stage on 12 November.

Ruth Cadbury has stated her opposition to the scheme.
