Hello to all at SMERA from Jerry
And if you wander who is this Jerry - that's the guy who's lived on your doorstep in St Margarets for the past 45 years! He's not unhappy to remain incognito but if some of you would like to look at some parts of the world through his eyes, then you are invited to visit www.retracinghistory.com
or better still visit www.ourrootstrust.org
And you don't necessarily have to keep your opinions to yourself; you could leave them on the blog or in the guest book.
Noah and his ark?
04/01/2011 - Did you know that much of St. Margarets sits in DEFRA defined areas at medium probability and high probability of flooding? No? Neither did !
I've been trying to sort out insurance for at least two weeks - most companies would not even give me a quote - but it wasn't until today that I finally tackled a company who had insured my property in the past, were reluctant to quote and then wound up offering me cover at five times the annual amount previously paid. When I pushed for an explanation I received the following.
Dear Ms Rooke,
Your case has been passed to our senior underwriters to review the points that you have put to us.
The senior underwriters advise that your postcode area is now declined due to the risk of flooding in the surrounding area. Whilst we have made an exception in offering a quote for insurance in your case, regrettably we are unable to reduce the quoted premium, as this premium reflects the currently perceived risk of loss....
Do have a look at the map referenced below to see whether this could be a problem for you.
and at www.richmond.gov.uk/flood_risk to see more on this issue.

Art Gallery - Chiswick Roundabout - OLD EVENT
Neal's Yard Galleries have opened another temporary art gallery in Chiswick (10-15 minutes from St Margarets). As always, its in empty, otherwise unused office space, giving a great sized area displaying sculptures, ceramics and paintings; some mainstream, some different! A lot of the work is going on to the Affordable Art Fair if it doesn't sell in Chiswick.
Re: Art Gallery - Chiswick Roundabout
Went last week, it was superb! Some really fantastic pieces of art and a really great use of space...oh and it was free!!! Definitely worth a visit!
well worth a trip - really eclectic work of art, a lot of them new and starting out..

We also do a tasting session at the end.
For more information please contact
Veronika, Kiddy Cook Twickenham
does anyone know what is going to happen to the shop vacated by the Village Cafe, opposite the station?
Dini the St Margarets ferret
This is just a line for everyone who has admired Dini as he has trotted around St Margarets over the past seven years.
For the past three years he has been living in Southampton but he has been a frequent visitor and I know a lot of people look out for him.
He returned here last month but he was quite old by then. Last week he became unable to walk properly. The vet said that he was coming to the end of his life and that there was nothing we could do. He died, peacefully in his sleep, on Friday night.
He is much missed.
Let's do the show right here!
If you were in Crown Road on a recent Sunday, you might have wondered why a couple were dancing the tango down the pavement. Well, they were putting together two minutes of film for the 'I Love St Margarets' competition. They didn't win: but their efforts do now appear on the 'My St Margarets' website. Check it out. (You'll need to scroll to the bottom of the page.)
Tom and Tammy have been trying to get a tango group running in St Margarets for over a year but although there are plenty of women wanting to dance, there's not enough men to make a group viable. They hope that the video will show that tango is fun for everyone. Meanwhile, until there are enough men to run group classes, Tom is still teaching privately to people who want to get started in the dance.
If you want to know more about tango, feel free to contact Tom here or on TWTPR@aol.com.
Re: Let's do the show right here!
OK, the link is far from clear. You have to go through loads of sub-menus to find it on the My St Margarets site, so it's probably easier just to go direct to YouTube. Either type 'St Margarets Mon Amour' into YouTube's search box or go direct to www.youtube.com/watch?v=Py6SEHOVG5k
Marble Hill Playcentres Annual General Meeting
Marble Hill Playcentres are having their AGM at 7.00pm on Thursday 18 March. It will be held at the One O'Clock Club in Marble Hill Park. We would welcome all parents to come to the One O'Clock Club to see what we can offer there and hear our plans for the year ahead.
There will be biscuits.
Marble Hill Placentres are also looking for VOLUNTEERS to serve on the COMMITTEE. We are hoping to find people with an enthusiasm for organisation and a willingness to get involved with staff in developing the facilities and strengthening our funding.
You will need to attend one or two committee meetings a month (at Marble Hill in summer and nearby in winter) but, more importantly, to contribute to developments between meetings. Marble Hill Playcentres is not just a place for children to play: it is a £100,000 business, employing up to 20 people. Committee members need to be able to take responsibility for key decisions affecting the One O'Clock Club and Adventure Playground. You will be offered training and help to build your skills as well as the support of our paid staff.
The position is voluntary but expenses (including babysitting) are payable.
Your initial commitment would be for just one year but we would hope that people will want to continue their involvement beyond that.
If you are interested, please contact the Chair, Sarah Liquorish by phone (88926732) or email ( email@example.com).
