NSMRA – RESIDENTS’ MEETING AND CAROL SINGING

Newsletter  14 November 2018   –  nsmra.org/

Residents’ Meeting.

20 November at 155 Haliburton Road, at 7.30pm.  Come along and raise anything you think important.  Also settling details of carol singing,

The Big Silence

The event went very well and had around 200 in the audience. Over £300 was raised for a local charity.  The cost of the event was mostly covered by a Civic Pride Grant from the Council, for which we are grateful.  The event brought to a provisional conclusion the last 10 years of investigating the names on the war memorial and remembering the men who died, who were our neighbours, separated from us by the illusion of time.

Local actors, singers and musicians took part.  In due course a video is expected to be posted to YouTube for those who missed it.  The singing involved was useful practice for the Carol Singing (see below)!

Changes to buses….

No apology for repeating this as it is hard to see any upside for our area. TfL is consulting on quite serious changes to local bus routes which affect us.

  1. They are proposing to reduce the frequency of the H37 during non-peak hours.
  2. They are proposing completely to reroute the 110, taking it away from the underserved road segment from Twickenham station to West Middlesex Hospital and instead running it down the A316 from Whitton Road and then following the current H37 route to Richmond.  There are proposals to ramp up the 267 service, but that route has always suffered from bunching because it is too long and gets held up at Hammersmith and Brentford,.

This will mean that the service along Twickenham Road to the hospital and station may revert to what it was a couple of years ago, and unlike the 110, the 267 stops outside the hospital rather than taking patients right up to the entrance. 

Why not take a few minutes to make some comments.

Carol Singing reminder

Will there be a “bleak mid-winter” this year? Or will we be saying: “The sun is shining, the grass is green, the orange and palm trees sway”?   Who knows, but the Craneside Carollers seems like a good name for anyone wanting to sing carols and raise money for a local charity. 

You, too, can take part.  If not by singing, by preparing an extra large bounty for those knocking on your door.

This year it will be on 19 December 2019 from about 6pm.  Carollers get mince pies and mulled wine.  Put it in your diaries…

A few other things…..

  1. There have been fraudsters knocking on doors claiming that some sort of emergency has happened and asking for  money for buses, taxis, etc.  Don’t pander to them and do call the police, having closed your door.  
  2. If you have a new neighbour, why not lean over their fence and tell them about NSMRA and this newsletter,

NSMRA – REMEMBRANCE DAY EVENT AND BUS CONSULTATION

Newsletter  2 November 2018   –  nsmra.org/

 

Four years ago, NSMRA and All Souls collaborated in an event which marked the start of the Great War in 1914, a war which still resonates today: a tragedy in every sense for those of us who share this delicate planet. 

Now we are back with an event to mark the end of that war, to celebrate the fragile peace, and to tell the story of the social changes which were going on at the time through the media of words and music.

Local professional actors and musicians, working with others from the community, will present the story of the Great Silence on the day one hundred years from the Armistice, on 11 November 2018, at 4pm.  During the event, the historic war memorial in the church will be rededicated to mark not just those local people who fell, but all victims of aggression and war.

There will be a retiring collection and any surplus funds will be donated to charity.  This will be, in every way, a unique event on a unique day.

Changes to buses….

TfL is consulting on quite serious changes to local bus routes which affect us.

  1. They are proposing to reduce the frequency of the H37 during non-peak hours.
  2.

NSMRA – GRANT ANNUAL STREET SALE REMINDER

Newsletter  9 September 2018   –  nsmra.org/

 

GRAND ANNUAL STREET SALE REMINDER

The posters have been up for a month, and if you have not seen them, don’t panic, one is reproduced here.

The Street Sale is not just a chance to get rid of those things that have been occupying space in your house for the last ten years and you can’t remember why. 

You can also sell crafts, surplus produce and other stuff.   You decide.  Most of the stalls will be near to the church, and if you live in the adjacent roads, you can set up in front of your house.  

In addition, there will be tables available near the church if you would prefer to set up there.  NSMRA asks for a small donation of £2 per stall (£5 for stalls which cannot be regarded as local). 

We’re expecting some stallholders to be selling food and snacks, so come well starved.  

The event is preceded by the
Beating of the Bounds

This is a crazy children’s procession open to any child of any age really.  Meet at 11am (in fancy dress if desired) at the Northcote Bridge!  It’s great fun.

 

1918-2018

Four years ago, the Association marked the centenary of the start of the First World War with a series of events which were centred around the names of local people who died during that terrible conflict.

It is proposed to commemorate the end of that War with a performance of poetry, prose and song on 11 November 2018, which is a Sunday.  It will be a community event, as it was before, and if you would like to participate in it, please get in touch, particularly if you would like to sing, or get involved in stage or sound management.

We are also raising money to pay for sound equipment, and if you know of a local sponsor, please get in touch.  Or if you would like to sponsor the event, even better!

In any event, please put the date in your diaries.

NSMRA – RIVER CELEBRATION DAY

Newsletter  14 June 2018   –  nsmra.org/

 

Big Lunch

A good turnout, lovely weather, loads of food, cheery conversations, children playing, live music.  A lovely day.  And thanks to very kind donors, some lovely raffle prizes drawn by an expert band of young people.  

Thanks in particular to Jake who pulled out the winning ticket for a night’s splendid accommodation and breakfast at the Rubens Hotel, and to the hotel’s kind donation of both this an a meal in their Curry Room.   Local restaurants Valentinos and Hei Hing donated meals, as did our local pub the Ailsa.  Thanks are also due to Surya who will be giving a Yoga and a Music Lesson to two lucky winners.  What with a Denbies Estate voucher and a session at the St Margaret’s Foot Clinic, this was a cornucopia of delight, and a sign of the vibrancy of our local community and local church working together.

Lost property!  A wooden bowl!  Email if it’s yours!

We are hoping to have some music, and if you, or your children, want to do a bit of entertaining, this will be welcomed.

Kilmorey Mausoleum open day – 29 April 2018


On Sunday, 29th April 2018 Kilmorey Mausoleum and its wildlife garden will be open to the public from 9.00am to 3.00pm. The address is 275 St Margarets Road, TW1 1PN, Twickenham (opposite the Ailsa Tavern).

Jack Kilmorey and his girlfriend Priscilla are not perhaps the most entertaining of hosts. You certainly wouldn’t go to their place for an evening of Trivial Pursuits and exotic cocktails – but they are consistent when it comes to hospitality. Their solid bronze front door is often open to the public and although the resulting welcome might not be as warm as hoped it is definitely reliable. Their home is worth a visit too – designed and built in ‘pharaonic’ style by an Egyptologist and reputed to be a genuine Victorian Time Machine! It sits in a large bee friendly, walled wildlife garden lovingly tended by Jack and Priscilla’s friends.

Drop by for a visit and you’ll hear stories of scandal, hidden tunnels and travels through time and space but you’ll never hear any bitchy comments from Jack and Priscilla about the neighbours, parking permits or endless descriptions of their holiday home in Tuscany, but that’s not surprising because they have both been dead for over 100 years. Now some couples might see this as a bit of a handicap but time travelling Jack and Priscilla are still very much in touch with our world. Like most of us they are alarmed by reports that over the last 50 years over half of UK plant species have declined. Now they have decided to do something about it.


On Sunday 29th April they are running their first Plant Sale for Wildlife in their Kilmorey Mausoleum Garden. There will be a wide range of plants on sale to encourage and sustain local wildlife including annuals, biennials, perennial, herbs and many more. Whether you have a huge garden or tiny outside space, there will be plenty of bargain plants to get your gardens growing. Local beekeepers will also be providing an opportunity for you to meet their busy buddies. There will be something for all the family to enjoy!

The plant sale will be combined with the mausoleum’s Open Day so as well as buying some plants you can also explore the wildlife garden and have a look inside the mausoleum to meet Jack and Priscilla in their leather covered designer coffins and hear of a love story that transcended time, space and Victorian morals as well.
