Potential changes to Hounslow boundaries

In July 2018, the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) announced it would be undertaking an electoral review of the London Borough of Hounslow.

Residents are invited to listen first-hand to the Boundary Commission’s presentation and ask any questions on the process of Hounslow’s review at its Public Meeting on Wednesday 14 November, from 6pm in the Blue zone at the Civic Centre, Lampton Road, Hounslow, TW3 4DN.

Reading Volunteers wanted

At Strand on the Green Infants and Nursery we provide children with reading experiences which aim to inspire and ignite an enquiring mind.

We have a number of volunteers from the local community who come in and help us achieve this. We’d love to have more because they do a fantastic job and make a big difference to our children’s lives and experience at school. If you are able to spare a little time weekly or fortnightly to read with our children we’d be delighted to welcome you. We do not expect a long term commitment and are flexible around the time you can give.

If you are interested please call (0208 994 7921) or email the school office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your details.

Thank you for helping to kill off this unwanted and intrusive scheme.

The Curve - update

The chiswickw4.com website has reported as follows:

curveThe importance of the views and the character of the listed buildings along Strand on the Green, which was perhaps the most important panoramic view from the south side of the river Thames was stressed at the Public Inquiry into the 32-storey Chiswick Curve this Tuesday (19 June).

Richard Griffith, chairman of Strand on the Green Residents [sic] Association (SoGA) said that poor quality developments could harm the integrity of the Conservation Area. He told the Inquiry, in its second week, at Brentford Free Church, that there were currently ambitious plans for schemes which included tall buildings and these would have an impact on the wider character of Chiswick and their effect on the Conservation Area should be considered.

The skyline of Strand on the Green was currently broken in on by the BSI Tower at Gunnersbury.

SoGA Launches 'House History' Project

Family-History-banner

After the success of the BBC's 'A House Through Time' TV programme, we are excited to announce the launch of the Strand on the Green 'House History Initiative'. This is intended as the first of a number of projects aimed at connecting the families who live in Strand on the Green today with the people who lived in their homes in times past.

What's in a name?

As you may have read in the latest edition of Signals, over the years, we have lost some alleys that historically connected Back Lane (know now as Thames Road) to the Strand towpath. Today we have Post Office Alley and Ship Alley but have you ever wondered about the name of other two remaining alleys – the one at the side of the Bell & Crown and the other at the side of the Hopkin Morris Homes of Rest?
