In brilliant weather and under the expert advice of local artist Jill Storey, more than 30 budding artists, ranging from professional hobbyist to outright amateur, families and youngsters, turned up at the Environment Trust for Richmond’s Art Picnic in Richmond Terrace Gardens last Sunday, 24 September.

Review : Brook's Blues Bar

Last night we decided to try the new Thursday evening fixture at the Turk’s Head Pub, Brook’s Blues Bar On stage were Fran McGillvray and Mike Burke who played two great sets of classic acoustic blues well into the night. The atmosphere of Winchester Hall was lovely with candle lit tables, a not to loud sound system, light food and a bar. Its has more of a club feel than a concert, so great to bring your friends.

For £7 its a good value and a fun night out – highly recommended.

Parked Cars Hinder Fire Engine in Winchester Road Fire

On Monday 11th September there was quite a serious fire in a van in the car park next to the business centre at the end of Winchester Road. A tree also caught alight and it seemed likely at one point that sparks from the fire would reach some of the houses. The most serious aspect of this incident was that the fire engine was unable to reach the fire because of cars dangerously parked across the corners of Broadway Avenue and Winchester Road and at the end of Winchester Road. In the end the fire fighters had to park the fire engine some distance away and pull the hoses over the hedge to reach the van.
