  1. 10th Dec at 6.30pm Christmas Carol Service It’s that time of year again! Our annual Christmas Carol Concert will take place at St Mary’s Church opposite our Church St Offices.

    The evening starts with the sound of a quarter peal rung on St Mary’s bells from 5.30pm which definitely adds to the festive atmosphere.

    The concert itself is varied with dance and musical performances by young people‎ as well as an opportunity for everyone to join in with some traditional carols supported by the Off the Record Singers.

    After the concert we will be serving festive refreshments and a complimentary glass of wine (provided by Doran Family Vintners). There will also be a raffle with some amazing prizes.

  3. Here is some *real* news, for those who don’t read posters at the station…
    The NEW Twickenham Station entrance should be OPEN by the end of the year!!

    Vague enough, but lets hope for Xmas opening….. 😛

    1. uncleosborne;
      sarcasm noted, but I am sure the worst critic who has ACTUALLY LOOKED will only say months… ;/

    2. Well I did say vague… :/
      BUT! there is a difference between ‘station’ and ‘station entrance’…

      in this case ‘station’ refers to the *whole* build – They HAVE to remove the ‘temporary entrance’, to build the housing adjacent to the river crane..

      this means the ‘main entrance’ will be opened, albeit with only stairs and temporary ticket facilities…

    3. Frankly, until access to all platforms by those who can’t use stairs – or are disadvantaged in trying – then we do not have a station entrance that is fit for purpose.
      Also, a station pedestrain approach that has new apartment balconies directly overhanging the pavement create a potentially fatal risk to those walking below. Or are Solum guaranteeing that nothing will ever fall or be dropped from the balconies?

    4. Illiad – actually, no – but what an odd question. It’s now 2019 and, unlike snow, the balconies are a man-made danger above a main pedestrain pavement. For what it’s worth I didn’t see the balconies overhanging the London Road pavement shown in Solum’s own public ‘masterplan’ when I looked (a while ago, but still online):
      http://www.twickenhamforward.com/the-plans.html
      So do you think they represent no risk, a tolerable risk or a risk that should be dealt with?

    1. A remarkable homage to the art of Van Gogh – a labour of love surely for the army of artists who painted each frame.
