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 email@example.com 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:
Although it does not fall within the price range of the newly introduced Help to Buy scheme, our Mayfair office does have more affordable properties for sale. We have recently been instructed on this lovely one bedroom flat located moments from Oxford Street…the best news is that on a typical Mayfair budget you will have plenty of change left over to hit the shops on Oxford Street, as this flat is currently on the market for £750,000. To find out more information, please contact Nicholas Austin on 020 7664 6644 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A delightful new instruction on Upper Berkeley Street, Mayfair.

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 email@example.com .
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.

Our Richmond team is very excited to discover that fashionable Whole Foods Market is landing in Richmond!
On Tuesday 8 October 2013 at 10am the popular health food shop will be opening their doors for the first time in historic Richmond town centre. This small and mighty store is a short walk from the railway station, and close to Royal parks, the River Thames, historic houses and of course our office on Lichfield Terrace…Richmond really is the place to be!
Our Jackson-Stops & Staff London team was delighted to participate in the annual CLEA charity shoot at Bisley on Friday 27th September.
Fuelled by a delicious BBQ lunch, the JSS London team managed a very respectable 9th place out of a total of 42 teams competing.
The day was a great opportunity to mingle with other London agents in a relaxed outdoor setting, away from the hustle and bustle of our usual London patches. Most importantly, a good amount of money was raised for this year’s charity, Help for Heroes.

Writes Helana Buchanan from Central London estate agents:
“According to a recent newspaper article, the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames has the highest healthy life expectancy (HLE) in England, according to the Office of National Statistics.
“While life expectancy is an estimate of how many years a person might be expected to live, healthy life expectancy is an estimate of how many years they might live in a ‘healthy’ state.”
Helana continues: “If you fancy living in Richmond we have two ideal properties for you. One is to rent and one is to buy. Or you could always pop along to our office on 3 Litchfield Terrace.”

Writes Katy Brennan, sales manager at Pimlico estate agents Jackson-Stops & Staff:
“A few dynamic changes have been taking place in respect of local watering holes in the Pimlico ‘Grid’, what with the Contented Vine having been turned into a state-of-the-art family home
“However, whilst losing one popular watering hole, the area has gaining another with a newly revamped Clarendon pub, situated on Cambridge Street SW1V.
“These changes are ringing positive bells for a very handsome property that we are marketing for sale on Sussex Street. Click here for more details.
“Situated next door to what was The Contented Vine, the proud owner will be able to benefit from a quieter street but at the same time profiting from what is sure to be a popular watering hole close by.

Writes Mark Birch from Teddington estate agents Jackson-Stops & Staff:
“This weekend is London Open House Weekend, an annual celebration and opportunity to celebrate local architecture and visit properties not normally open to the general public:
“Local highlights include Bushy House, Orlean House Gallery and Langdon Down Centre, and it’s well worth the effort to see some of these properties.
“In the same development as the Langdon Down Centre, a Grade II listed Victorian theatre, we have a one bedroom apartment available for rent with views over adjacent parkland. In fact this development may appear in future open house events due to its architectural merits.”
