Toss Oars!

Even Kings and Queens like to get away to the country at the weekend and their favourite way of getting there was by Shallop - an 8 oared pleasure barge with a comfy glass-sided, cabin in which to chill out. Faster than walking and much more comfortable than riding in a coach, a well crewed shallop could get from Greenwich to Hampton Court in about 4 hours. The trip would take longer if the boat stopped at Twickenham Ait for some of Mistress Mayo’s famous eel pies, a particular favourite with Henry VIII. Shallops were the riparian version of the stretched limo. Fast, comfortable and stylish.

Impact of strikes on Richmond Council services, 16 and 17 July

There have been no major disruptions in the borough following the start of the 48-hour industrial action, with just one library closed. Other front line services are operating as normal with all schools open and waste and recycling collections running as usual.

However, no day centres have closed and our most vulnerable service users continue to receive support.

We hope that any disruption to residents will continue to be minimal and that the dispute will be settled quickly.
