Spring was briefly spotted today in south west London. Reports that spring might be in the Twickenham area have been circulating for some weeks but until this morning had remained unsubstantiated. The sudden appearance of a warm yellow disc in the sky was appreciated by the residents. The “save the riverside” campaign were out, presumably to ensure the Tories don’t forget their pre-election promise. And the good news appeared to be that Captain Birdseye (retired) had turned up to add some celebrity endorsement.
