Christ Church Centenary Year commemorations

March 22, 2010

I was fortunate enough to have been invited to tea and a service of Thanksgiving and celebration at Christ Church, Hanworth Road, Feltham yesterday.  Having just got back from Hammersmith with my two children, I was worried that I had arrived late but fortunately that was not the case (phew).  It was my first time inside Christ Church but better late than never.

I received a very warm welcome and had a long chat with Eddie Menday, who writes for the Chronicle, over some sandwiches.   He cares and knows so much about the area and he is always keen and willing to share his knowledge.

I said that I would make some enquiries about the trees out the front and whether the Council’s 1000 new trees pledge could assist with replacing the furthest tree in the following picture (which, I was informed, is dead):

Many thanks to the Secretary, Mrs Griffiths, for the original invite (which I confess I mislaid) and to Mark Savage (regular reader of this blog) for the reminder.  It was lovely to see some people that I knew and meet others for the first time.

Update: I have received the following:
“I have found the Tree Preservation Order paperwork which lists the trees as
Two Japanese Cherry “Kansan” one of which is the “dead” specimen
Two Malus crab apple
These were made the subject of a tree preservation order under “The London Borough of Hounslow (No 379) Tree Preservation Order 1999” at a time when an application was made to remove all four trees.  Additional notes did admit that the “dead” tree was in a poor state and consideration would be given to “fell, grind and replacement with a new tree”.”

Yesterday evening, I was concerned by what I saw.  I was there again this morning so stopped to take some pictures.

The first is opposite 20 Hanworth Road:

The one that caused me the concern yesterday is on Hanworth Road (opposite junction with Inwood Road).  I am not certain what this is the rear of but it is not too far from the rear of HSBC (but I stress that this is not the rear of HSBC) The cars being parked there this morning to some extent hides just how bad it is:

And, finally, the carpark opposite number 2 Inwood Road has a lot of litter on it:

I will report these matters today and ask for urgent attention.
