Post early…for tomorrow
The Post Office have announced that the last post from our local post box (on the corner of St Margaret’s Drive) is to be 9am Monday to Friday and 7am on Saturday. This does seem a little early for the last post, and if you are minded to complain about this why not complete a complaints form from this link.

If you are reading this on a phone, carry on down past the next item as there is another column

River Crane Footbridge update.

By way of an update, we have been asked to publicise the following message from our local Neighbourhood Policing Team;

“I would like to inform you that the Rapid Deployment Camera is now in place and operational.
Please encourage residents to note all antisocial behaviour and mopeds activity around the venue and inform St Margaret’s Local Police for CCTV follow up.
Emergency – 999
Non-Emergency – 101
St Margaret’s Local Police – 
stmargarets.northtwickenham.snt@met.police.uk


 Thank you,

Eugenia Venour PCSO 7159TW
Police Community Officer | St Margaret’s & North Twickenham SNT
Telephone 0208 247 7142″



It is important to note that the CCTV camera is not monitored and is there to provide evidence.  So it is vital that any incident is reported.






Not everyone’s cup of tea this, but it is worth looking at Nextdoor, which is rather like a local noticeboard.

Residents’ Meeting
The next open meeting is on 23 January at 7.45pm at 155 Haliburton Road.  As always, all are welcome to come and talk about local issues and ideas for improving our community.  On the agenda will be planning the AGM and setting dates for activities.

Parking Zone
This has now been in place for a couple of months, but it is still an experimental zone, and the Council is obliged to consider any representations about it for 6 months from the date of implementation.  If you would like to have your say, then this is the link to the officer’s email.


Old Deer Park
Although the Old Deer Park is outwith the NSMRA Area, it is a resource much beloved of residents.  The Council is currently consulting on Planning Guidance for the area of and surrounding the park and the link to this is here. The deadline for comments is 22 January, and even if you have nothing to add, the documents are worth reading.

River Crane Footbridge.

There has been some local concern about the footbridge over the River Crane on Northcote Road and how its presence might be encouraging thieves, vandals, and anti-social elements into our neighbourhood.

 This suspicion developed after reports that the bridge was being used as a rat run by moped riders fleeing from the police in the knowledge that the police cars would not be able to follow them. 

After a preliminary meeting before Christmas a well-attended ‘report-back’ meeting was held by the police in All Souls Church Hall on Tuesday 9 January. Chairing the meeting was Community Ward Sergeant John McLoughlin along with Sergeant Les Jackson our local Crime Prevention Officer and Community Support Officer Eugenia Venour. The council was represented by Colin Lucas, the Community Safety Officer.

Having heard from our community at the pre-Christmas meeting the police and local council were now able to put forward a number of proposals to tackle the problem.

1. To install ‘Staggered Barriers’ to slow down bikes and mopeds.
2. To prune the overhanging willow tree and install better lighting.
3. To task the council’s ‘street cleaning team’ to tidy up the area and paint the bridge to improve the appearance of the area.
4. To investigate the possibility of installing a closed-circuit camera. 


In relation to the last point, although the police are aware that mopeds involved in crime often have their number plates removed or changed and the riders difficult to identify if they are wearing crash helmets, any video material gathered is useful for building up a general data base on moped crime.

The police have said that it will take about 12 weeks for any of these proposals, supported by their colleagues in Hounslow, to come into effect and have suggested another public meeting early in the Spring to discuss the outcome.

The meeting did acknowledge that the footbridge, originally proposed and financed by All Souls church to allow parishioners from the Ivy Bridge and Worple Avenue estates to attend church, was an important and busy thoroughfare used by communities on both sides of the Crane. Any restrictions or controls should be mindful of the many hundreds of law abiding citizens using the access each week.
