Richmond Environmental Health gives kitchen top marks

Our kitchen and catering facilities were checked on 30th September by the Environmental Health Officer from the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and we have been given the top rating (5) for food hygiene and safety procedures, structural requirements and management/control procedures.

Much of the credit for this upgrade to our rating (4 at the previous test) must go to Nicky Chavasse who has put so much time, skill and hard work to achieving this success, but we must also thank the rest of the catering team who contributed to keeping the standards up and also to those who spent time gaining their hygiene certificates. Well done to you all.

Thanks and regards,

John Adams

Proposals for a Hydro Scheme at Teddington Lock

Dear members,
There is a proposal to develop a hydro power generator at Teddington Lock. The scheme has raised strong views either way and has been submitted a second time for planning permission.

Details of the planning application are on the London Borough of Richmond’s web site at:


The council are seeking comments on the proposal and we have agreed to host a presentation of the scheme at Tamesis on Friday 10th October so that those interested in finding out about the scheme and passing comments either to the council or to the developers have the opportunity to do so.

The exhibition is a drop-in event with material covering different aspects of the design so that people can wander about and ask questions. The time slot is 7.30 to 9.30 pm.

Please note that while Tamesis is hosting the evening we are doing so to provide people with the opportunity of gaining information on the scheme and then to formulate their own opinions and not as an expression of support or otherwise of the scheme.


John Adams
