Pictures for Frances?

About a year ago, we received a letter from the daughter of a former St Margarets’ resident who has longed to return to the UK since 1946. At the time she was looking for help on getting a flight arranged for her mother to visit, but now writes asking for photos and news. If any reader knows Frances and can relate some stories, or a photographers with a good set of photos of the area, please email us at and we will arrange to email off the information.

Teddington CPZ: An Unrepresentative Minority wants a CPZ

“I thought you might be interested in my analysis of the Council’s survey in Teddington. The issues are very similar – the worst parking problem occurs in the evening – and yet the Council wishes to force through a CPZ on a small positive vote (completely ignoring those who didn’t vote for whatever reason) of a relatively small section of the area (they asked half the households in Teddington for their views).

Parking in St Margarets is a pain and will remain a pain regardless of whether a CPZ is implemented. A CPZ will cost everyone money, will bring traffic wardens into the area on a regular basis (perhaps their contract could extend to something socially useful, like litter picking) and will reduce the amount of parking since parking at junctions will be controlled. Only those who haven’t thought about the big picture could possibly favour any CPZ scheme.”

Orange Tree Theatre Arts Council Grant Reinstated

The Orange Tree Theatre is delighted to announce that its Arts Council grant has been reinstated, having been under the threat of a 17 % cut. This decision is a reflection of the Arts Council’s belief in the quality and importance of the Orange Tree’s work and recognition of its significant London-wide reputation. The Orange Tree is London’s only theatre permanent theatre in the round and its commitment to unearthing forgotten classics gives it a national significance. Without full funding the Orange Tree would be unable to continue with its unique programme of work as well as its many education and outreach projects, and so it is with relief that we learn that the Arts Councils’ full support will continue.
