With the success of the last get-to-together at the Gunnersbury Pub, we plan to have another informal meeting which this time, will include a short walk before. The walk will be an opportunity to point out and give some background details on some of the buildings that the committee and members put forward to be included in the Local List.
The meeting and the walk is open to members and their friends.
The walk starts at the Queens Head Pub (12 Sutton Lane North, W4 4LD) at 7.00pm and the meeting will be at the Pilot Pub (56 Wellesley Road, W4 4BZ) at 8.00pm.
The Society’s AGM will be on Monday, 5th February at 7.30 pm.
The venue as usual is Age Concern Hall, Oxford Road North.

The consultation consists of an action plan (this a quite large report -the actual plan starts on page 48), a short online survey and a two page questionnaire. These can be viewed and completed together or separately.
The closing date to reply is the 17th December, 2017.
TfL are consulting on changes to local bus routes, including reducing the frequency of route 391 to every 15 minutes during weekday daytimes and to every 20 minutes during weekday evenings and all day on Sundays. Route 440 would be diverted to run direct via Acton Lane between Turnham Green and Chiswick Park Station and would no longer serve Chiswick Health Centre and Acton Green. Consultation closes 17th September.
A new exhibition on Chiswick by professional local artists and photographers will be in the atrium of Clayton Hotel, 626 Chiswick High Rd from 7th September – 28th October 2017.
It will feature 17 local artists and photographers including Jon Perry who has supplied us with some photographs for this website.
Photos We hope that you enjoy the range of photos now on the website. You will see that many of them are by local photographer, Jon Perry, whom we commissioned to provide a portfolio of some of the interesting features from the streets and buildings within our patch. Others are taken by members of the Society.
For example, this photo of the magnificent wild flower meadow in Gunnersbury Park was taken recently by our chairman. If you haven’t been to the park lately, it is well worth a visit to see the meadow and to view the progress being made on the regeneration. The wraps are off the large mansion and the new café is taking shape.
A new leaflet on forthcoming events in the park is available – please click here.
