Hi,I lost my wallet yesterday on the high road. The last time I recall having it was by the charity shops near Sainsbury's on my lunch break.It is a small black wallet with a broken zip on top. It has my license inside along with several other cards. It also has a pouch for coins.Please reply to this message if you have any information.Thanks

Is this your cat? This little fella has been coming into my house in Weston Rd, Acton Green for about a week, and getting more and more persistant not to leave. Have a feeling he's been around about longer. I dont know how long I should give it before taking him to vet to check for chip. Dont want to kick him out, but dont want to feed someone else's cat. Thought this could be good first step.

This just came up on Facebook. I wonder what the responses will be like?Nov 19, 2021Residents are being urged to give their views in the Annual Customer Satisfaction Survey from Hounslow Highways.Feedback is being sought on how local people rate the services being delivered across the borough.Services delivered by Hounslow Highways include street cleansing, highway maintenance, trees, grounds maintenance and resurfacing works.The survey consists of a total of 35 questions, some of which require a compulsory response.This year as a result of the continuing impacts of the pandemic, Hounslow Highways say they have prioritised their services to deliver health and safety critical activities on the network, while carrying out normal operations when and where possible. As a result of this they have added in a question about their performance during this specific time.The survey can be found at surveymonkey.co.uk/r/L3W8H2D.

There wasn't one. Turned up (free and easy parking) at CP House - without an appointment - 9:30 this morning. Not one person ahead of us. In and out (after the customary 15 min sit down) in a jiffy.What's stopping people grasping an easy and fast opportunity to have their booster? https://www.ealing.gov.uk/info/201262/coronavirus_covid-19/2765/coronavirus_covid-19_vaccines/1

The recent threads on budget hotel design and window replacement in Bedford Park caught my eye. For the record, to me the former is what it is while the latter is, as some have said, a chance for the gate keepers to hold sway over something they know little of while desperately clinging to the past. There are plenty of ways to replace windows with energy-efficient replicas suitable for any period conversion in a preservation area. Happens all the time.But the recent article about the LB housing on Wilton Avenue takes the cake. If we try to follow the bouncing ball of LBH lunacy, they are attempting to establish the Glebe Estate as a conservation area yet, on the very grounds they wish to preserve, they propose putting an egress stair tower as the focal point at the end of a lovely street. If the uninspired design of a budget hotel puts your knickers in a twist, take a look at the ugly amalgam of literal boxes plunked together as housing. It doesn't get more uninspired than this. Pure dread. Also interesting is the High Road Conservation area that seems to require a second round of assessment. Not to mention the second attempt to remove street clutter. What do we get? More clutter in the form of the new horrendous big black plastic containers for business waste now landing on a pavement near you. For this Guy Lambert should be removed. It is a wholly inept response on every level. Completely disjointed from the entire scope of activity on and evolution of the pavement. Reduce the pavement for a bike lane, then reduce it further by adding clutter simultaneous to the intent to remove it. Anyone who tries to sell all of this as a pedestrian improvement is a fool. A bench would be nice, Guy. Maybe even several. And what about those "heritage-style" LED lamps approved by LBH? Where are they? Why aren't they lining each side of Chiswick High Road along the Conservation Area?Good design is an integral part of building an inspiring streetscape and healthy community. Pity there exists no such agenda in Chiswick.

I read that electric buses are charged by diesel generators. Is this fake news? There's a photo attached but doesn't seem likely

I have noted what is potentially an interesting increase in the numbers of people, including myself, cycling along the A4 corridor through Chiswick in recent weeks. I have observed what is probably a mix of commuters, locals and family groups, including box cycles for children. And why not, the route is segregated and very safe and with few interruptions to flow and there are several points for safe and convenient local road access into the centre of Chiswick, a few minutes ride away? Perhaps comparisons and choices are now being made and the poorly designed cycle lane along Chiswick High Road, with its numerous interuptions to flow, conflicts and poor safety record, is being avoided. In 2019 both Tfl and LB Hounslow discounted the use of the A4 corridor without any proper consideration of design alternatives, such was the determination at that time that a route along the High Road was the only option.

First to you, the people in Grove Park who, months, possibly years, ago recommended Darlings to repair leaking gutters - THANK YOU. Only late spring did I organise them and having DRY walls and no streaming rain rivulets is SUCH a relief.Now, another request: I need to move a gas fire (imitation coal basket) to replace a second which I want to chuck. In the space left by No.1 I shall place an electric 'log burning' stove.Dead simple job but need a local handyman who knows about gas and their pipes; should it be a plumber?

I live in a residential street near the Chiswick High Road. For well over a week there has been some Thames Water maintenance work going on but most of the time the work has been left and with promises to be back. No sign of flooding or emergency. Then suddenly this morning there is massive head banging drilling. Are utilities permitted to make this kind of noise for what is clearly not an emergency on a Sunday morning and what can one do?

Motorbikes are becoming an increasing scourge in Southfield Playing Fields. Just got in from walking my dogs. We met one tearing down the path from North to South of the park - probably a delivery driver as we saw him tear back again about 10 minutes later. Then encountered two others going at great speed, one of whom only just missed my dog who is bike savvy but did not have time to get out of the way with the speed this nutcase was going. Councillors, can you please tell me if motorbikes are allowed in Southfield Playing Fields? If so, that is just one more hazard, along with pavements, that pedestrians and dogs have to negotiate. If not, what are you going to do about it?

Met up today with many old friends with whom we go back years and years and who were all active and loyal Labour party members for many years, one almost had a fifty year membership. What came out during a lot of conversations was the fact that none of us any longer are still party members. There is a lot of disillusion, and a view that what passes for the Labour party locally no longer understand or uphold the politics of the party and have completely lost touch with exactly the people that gave so much time and effort for the principles they believed in. Not one of us will ever vote Tory. Labour locally are anathema to most of us, they ignore the very people they are elected to represent, they smack of an arrogance that is breath-taking, and they have lost touch with the very people the Labour party existed to serve.

Looking at the news this morning to see that the Netherlands is on the brink of another lockdown and Austria are about to lock up the unvaccinated, is it time to consider this government might actually have done something right?Our own Covid numbers remain high but are not increasing despite schools being back and the approach of winter. Certainly the government appears to have had a bit of luck with the unseasonably mild weather but, at this stage, it looks like the inevitable surge around Christmas might just be manageable (through the continuing heroic efforts of NHS staff).If the strategy is working, the chances are that credit should go to Sajid Javid one of the few remaining cabinet ministers of any competence. His failed bid to be Tory leader did suggest that he lacks the polish to be the next Prime Minister but we could do a lot worse.

It appears every programme, even the news on both Radio and TV, are repeats. Are there any new programmes, serials, sit-comes, that are new productions -not rehashes of old ones? Where is all the creative talent this Country is/was sofamous for?

Copied from Twitter Hounslow Cycling@HounslowCycling·2hTwo people on bikes hit and run in Chiswick - Abinger Rd, Dukes Meadows. Both hit from the side/behind, neither vehicle stopped as their victim lay in the road. If anyone saw either event, please get in touch.I’m afraid there’s going to be a lot more cycle collisions in the dukes Meadows area as Hounslow Council, due to the blockage of the tunnel and construction of the car , coach and lorry parking have turned Riverside Drive and the promenade into very busy and dangerous roads, Hounslow have provided a safe cycling route from Barnes Bridge to Hammersmith, which was used quite often in the beginning, but cyclist seem to have returned to the promenade again which has become very busy.

I regularly both cycling and walk my dog on Acton Green. The case currently featured on the front page had been related to me by other dog walkers but I thought it was apocryphal.
Obviously as it a live case I'll avoid talking about the specifics but I've always treated the pathway across the green as being a pedestrian priority one and that would include for those with four legs. That seems to be pretty much the universal attitude among cyclists using the path.
The suggestion that has been raised that cycling may be banned due to a local bye law is an alarming one. It would mean that cyclists would be forced to use the increasingly congested roads next to the park.

As reported on this site TfL are currently doing a survey about accessibility on the tube and how they will choose which stations to make step free next.Chiswick is uniquely free of accessible stations on London Underground, Overground and mainline. Give its footfall, if the area were to get an accessible station it would be Turnham Green.The survey is easy to complete and at the end there is space for comments which you can make your case why you think Turnham Green (or another station in the area should be free).The survey is here: https://haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/tube-step-free-access

Check out Channel 4 ‘Dispatches - Did Brexit Work for Business?’ - especially if you voted to leave the E.U. This short programme is available on All 4 for 30 days. It looks at what has happened since Brexit to companies that export to Europe, and the picture is pretty dismal, but we do get a contribution from Liz Truss who expects things will improve by 2030 or 2040. And the Netherlands seem to be doing very nicely thank you, courtesy of Brexit.

I have just received a letter this morning- saying I have a free £20 voucher from our local council- apparently from ecovouchers and again from Steve Curran- doesn’t make sense to me- is this correct? Apparently every household should be getting this- I realise I am sceptical but would really like to know.
