As proud lead sponsor of the TRFC Minis in Teddington we were delighted to see this CGI image of how their stunning new clubhouse will look.
Work has just commenced following the recent spell of wet weather, and the build will be the result of many hours of tireless fundraising by club members; the clubhouse will provide a fantastic new hub for the players to congregate in over the years and we look forward to watching works progress. Go the Minis!

The first Brooklands Half Marathon takes place in and around Weybridge on Sunday 30th March. Oatlands PTA is entering a team of some 20 intrepid runners all aiming to complete the course, whilst raising funds for 2 incredibly worthy causes. Firstly, some expansion works that are required to alleviate the current pressure on space at Oatlands School in Weybridge. Secondly, the Little Oaks Ward at St Peter’s Hospital, which is the Oncology Unit for children aged 0-18. This is being done in honour of Harvey Broekhuizen, a former pupil of Oatlands School, who was diagnosed with Leukaemia at the age of 6 whilst on holiday. On return to the UK Harvey had to have 6 months of intense chemotherapy which sadly caused him to lose his sight, which has only partially returned. Harvey is in remission but has to visit St Peter’s hospital monthly for chemotherapy, as well as having daily oral chemotherapy, monthly steroids and three monthly chemotherapy into his spine.
The Little Oaks ward has a play area but they need more toys/entertainment facilities. Furthermore many oncology children are so poorly they aren’t allowed to leave their rooms due to the risk of infection. For these children the runners would like to raise funds to purchase additional/more modern in-room entertainment to try to make their visits a more enjoyable experience.
Funds will also go towards what are called “distraction toys” for when the children are having treatment to distract them from the discomfort.
The marathon is taking place on 30th March 2014, starting at 09:00hrs and we wish all the runners the very best of luck with their training before the big day! Please give what you can by clicking on the link below to donate:

Members of staff from our Chelsea office were delighted to continue their support of the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund and attended this year’s annual Carol Service that was held in aid of the charity.

Richmond locals are used to seeing many well-known faces in the town, due to its enduring popularity with a great many famous residents; however, there was clear delight amongst locals as they watched Henry Winkler, aka ‘The Fonz’ from Happy Days, light up the town at the Lighting Ceremony on Saturday at 6pm.

If you missed the ceremony, there’s still a chance to catch Henry in panto, when he’ll be taking on the slightly less popular role of Peter Pan’s Captain Hook at Richmond Theatre Pantomime
Richmond certainly is in the Christmas Spirit …

It’s that time of year again; the annual John Lewis ad has won our hearts, Oxford Street is pumping out the fake snow…and we are eagerly awaiting the first airing of the Coca Cola Christmas advert.
Nicholas Austin, who looks after the Sales Department in our Mayfair Office, can help solve at least one Christmas dilemma facing every hostess throughout the land, that being the quandary of where to fit the extended family when they descend on Christmas Eve. The answer is, of course, The Manor on Davies Street, Mayfair, which boasts 4000sqft of living space.
Not only is the property located a short distance from Oxford Street and Bond Street, it is also less than 100 yards from Claridge’s Hotel (just in case you require yet more accommodation during the festive season).
Please contact Nick Austin on 020 7664 6644 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further details about this or any other of our Mayfair sales instructions.
A perfect place to entertain.

Nicholas Austin, who heads up our sales department in the Mayfair office, writes:

To find out more information, please contact Nicholas Austin on 020 7664 6644 or email email@example.com.

Mark Birch from our Teddington office discusses Christmas postage dates and a point – or should that be ‘post’ – of interest in the local area:
It’s worth noting that Christmas cards to friends and family in Asia, the Far East and New Zealand need to be posted no later than 4th December to arrive in time.
The universal postal system is something we take for granted in the UK, as are our post boxes, things that we walk past every day and generally take for granted.
Teddington is fairly unique and philatelists out there may be interested to know that there are over 30 post boxes in TW11, two of which are painted gold in celebration of Mo Farah’s Olympic success; others are based on designs from the Victorian period through to the present.
Jackson-Stops & Staff is proud to be marketing a beautiful Victorian family house in Bolton Gardens, adjacent to one of these post boxes; the property is picture postcard perfect for those looking for a perfect home in time for Christmas. click here for further details.
If you would like to discuss this or any other property further, please contact Mark Birch on 020 8943 9955, or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Mark Birch from our Teddington office writes:
With Christmas just around the corner, many local Churches are advertising local fetes; Hampton Court has announced the opening of its Ice Rink on 30th November and ‘Pines and Needles’ have started advertising the sale of Christmas trees in Bushy Park. Teddington is a particularly great town at this time of year, with its pretty high street decorations and fabulous sense of community.

The debate continues as to where to position the new pedestrian bridge from Nine Elms, south of the River Thames, to Pimlico, as Georgina Clarke from our Pimlico office writes:
Many of the local residents represented by FREDA (Federation of Pimlico Residents’ Association) are against the plans as they fear the additional pedestrian footfall and increased level of cyclists.
A drawing of the Nine Elms development scheme proposal.
A short while ago I was asked to complete a destination whilst crossing Vauxhall Bridge and my colleague, Ed Lovatt, a cyclist was asked to complete the same survey on his daily crossing of Chelsea Bridge. The results are being used to determine who would use the new pedestrian bridge and where it would be best positioned. So here’s what the residents think ….

Writes Mark Birch, Lettings Manager of our Teddington office:
With the recent fall in temperature it’s clear that Autumn is just around the corner – and with it comes the welcome return of the ever popular BBC programme, Autumn Watch, which hits our screens again on 29th October.
Urban Londoners can sometimes feel set apart from nature when watching images of a deer in Dartmoor, or a White Tailed eagle flying over the Outer Hebrides.
However, beautiful Royal Bushy Park provides countless opportunities to make the most of the outdoors, from seeing the Autumnal leaves falling from the trees to witnessing a deer wandering in such a fantastic habitat.
Don’t miss the chance to move closer to nature…we are marketing two fantastic parkside rental properties in Makepeace and Mount Stewart Court with views over Bushy Park, ideal for people wanting to bring some serenity into their lives.
Click here to see further details of the Makepeace and Mount Stewart Court properties, call Mark Birch on 020 8943 9955 or pop in to see some of the recent photos he’s been taking of the deer in Bushy Park.
