On Saturday 6th November the Royal British Legion set up a Garden of Remembrance on Turnham Green, in memory of those who lost their lives in war.

Wooden crosses were planted in the garden by those who remember relatives and friends.  A short service of dedication was led by the Rev. Jim Dainty at 11am, near Christ Church Turnham Green. Among those attending were be Ann Keen M.P. for Brentford and Isleworth and the Mayor and Mayoress of Hounslow, Councillor and Mrs Cheema.

Chiswick’s official Remembrance Sunday service is at Christ Church, Turnham Green on Sunday 14th November. Meet at the Town Hall at 10.30 am, and walk (led by those laying wreathes) to the War Memorial at 10.40 am to lay tributes, followed by the two minute silence at 11 am. Remembrance Service in the church follows. Everyone is invited all to stay for coffee at the end.

Volunteers are always needed to sell poppies, many of the war-time stalwarts are becoming increasingly frail. Long or short stints, indoors or outdoors, can be arranged to suit circumstances. The Poppy Appeal also needs people to have boxes in places of business, or put up a Poppy Appeal poster.

The Chiswick Branch of the Royal British Legion meets in the Chiswick Memorial Club in Bourne Place Chiswick at 8 pm on the third Thursday of every month. Just come along, or call the Hon. Sec. Rex Carter 020 8994 6877  for more details.
