    Jason Debney from the Thames Landscape Strategy led a group of Kew Society members on a fascinating Thames-side walk from Kew to Richmond on Thursday. Work is in hand to restore the historic landscape from the King's Observatory to the river, and there are plans to run ferries to the Kew side of the river from Brentford and Isleworth. Jason told us about the impact of higher tide levels, and the constant need for volunteers to help the Strategy team in their conservation work.
