Large parts of Chiswick were hit by a major power cut this Friday evening (16 October) and supply was not completely restored in some areas the following morning.

The interruption to electricity started at around 7.20pm and was widespread with residents in Strand on the Green and around Gunnersbury reporting problems.

Power network company SSEN’s web site indicates that the problem is centred at the sub-station at the rear of Sainsbury’s in Essex Place and its latest update indicates that it was hoped that supply would be fully restored by 10am on Saturday.

Some residents have reported that their supply has returned earlier on Saturday morning.

You can join the power network company’s priority services register if you are elderly, have children under 5 in the household or have certain medical conditions. This gives you a dedicated 24 hour priority services phone number and priority updates during a power cut.

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.

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.
