From today's "Guardian", and with 0% commission as well
Using their considerable financial acumen,* it looks like Truss and Kwarteng have branched out and opened a Foreign Exchnge Bureau on the side. But don't all rush as Moggy and his mates probably cleaned them out, within two seconds of opening. Possibly even beating the "Guardian" picture editor to it.
* buy dear sell cheap — its the only way to get out of this mess

The Ealing site is reporting that Brompton is making plans to move its main manufacturing base to Kent with the factory in Greenford being wound down over the next few years.I've never owned one but have ridden them and they are a great bit of kit and it should be remembered that this rare British manufacturing success story was once more or less based in Chiswick. It'll be sad to see it go.

Amongst the Autumn gloom some good news. Most of you clever people all know this; but the following may help our Chiswick neighbours.1. We did an online UK passport request 11 days ago @ gov.uk with an online iPhone photo. No data changes [name / address DOB etc.]. It took eight, maybe nine, minutes. Enter a Telephone number & email address; blah, blah. It was approved 23rd September by Liverpool Passport Office. It is being printed today. All tracked by email. One Easy win.2. Better than our dawdling District line, the pleasant Turnham Green way to New Bond Street [NBS] November 6th onwards is Elizabeth Line via Ealing Broadway (maybe 8 minutes). A step-free one minute walk, then just 14 minutes EB to NBS. Use Tottenham Court Road stop to Euston; use Farringdon stop (18 minutes) to Gatwick, London Bridge & St. Pancras. Liverpool Street is five Elizabeth stops from Ealing Broadway! Woolwich station [9 stops] looks quick if you want London City Airport.3. Tired with our AXA PPP medical cover, we transferred in 2022 direct to BUPA. We saved £100.00 per month, each, going forwards. No hassle and same-day transferable UK medical cover. Explore it online.4. I cancelled my Three wi-fi contract in July. This month they requested more money. They inefficiently “forgot” to cancel my DD. My bank say it is their responsibility, not mine. Anyway, I stopped the DD. Always check cancelled contract suppliers have ceased the DD charges made to your Bank.5. We sold an old car due to ULEZ. There were tears. We saved £1,200 + in MOT, repairs & insurance, DVLA and Hounslow costs. We use tube / taxis - as needed. We now have one car. Another win.I am bored with the vituperation and denunciation in many postings. Time we were better to each other. If you want the comparison cost medical website name, you’ll have to ask me nicely; by giving a contact point - a phone to which I can text.

After 35 years living in Chiswick we have finally taken the plunge and moved out of London. Our departure was been hastened by the worsening traffic and increasing plane noise. This morning we woke to the clip clopping of horses outside and birdsong. We will of course miss Chiswick and all our friends deeply and will visit regularly. Looking forward to our new venture. The forum has been a useful source of information over the years, so thank you to everyone who has contributed. It has also been both a source of contention and amusement. Best wishes to everyone. Over and out.

Well done to ChiswickW4.com for a good piece of investigative digging to give some clarity about what is actually going on with Cycleway 9.One question that wasn't answered was why TfL and Hounslow are so keen to kick on with the consultation. Would it not be perfectly legitimate for them to say there is no point in asking for people's views about the scheme this year because a) it isn't finished b) the A4 roadworks c) Christmas. From their point of view this would also give more people time to become accustomed to its existence.It will be very hard to assess any comments from local people or organisations in the current situation.I'd be interested to hear if anyone has an insight into what they think is going on. It would be great if people could avoid rehashing the old arguments about the Cycleway itself (although I'm not holding my breath) as we already know what most of you think.

This award-winning educational charity is looking for more freelance teachers to join the team that delivers its river learning programmes. We are particularly hoping to find someone for geography/fieldwork programmes for Key Stage 3 to 4 pupils, outdoors and indoors, working from our Chiswick Pier House site.

Anybody knows what's going on with the recycling containers at the Sainsbury's? They look like in a state of abandon with trash everywhere around the containers and families of foxes living there at night...

Hi all, At the back of our property, there are 3 separate neighbours who have roof top terraces. As we have an old roof that may need work soon, we thought to see if Ealing council would grant a roof top terrace. It seems as though that the said top floor flats have had these outdoor spaces for some time and gotten them approved over the years. Not sure how generous the council will be for a brand new application for a roof top terrace? Any advise/thoughts are appreciated from you all who are knowledgeable and long term residents as we have not lived in Chiswick very long.
