Pop down to Chiswick Pier on Sunday 21 July for a fun day on and off the river.

The action starts at 11.30am when the event officially opens, the first free boat trip sails, Chiswick Canoe Club take to the water for canoe taster sessions and Thames Explorer Trust meet up ready to take the children river dipping. River dipping is great fun but can be muddy so please dress children appropriately including covered in shoes - then get stuck in!

There will be free boat trips aboard Princess Freda, a Dunkirk Little Ship, sail from Chiswick Pier every 45 minutes from 11.30am throug the afternoon.

Stroll around, browse the stalls and entertain the children with various games including interactive fun sessions with Amanda’s Action Club. These will run at 12.00, 1.00pm and 2.30pm. Also guaranteed to keep the children happy is our face painter Cheeky Chops.

Will from Barn Bacon will be cooking delicious handmade burgers and sausages on the bbq and a Fullers bar will be serving draught London Pride. Hot and cold refreshments, cakes and ice creams will also be available. Relax and soak up the atmosphere down by the river whilst listening to the ever popular band Shenanigans.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
