Red and Yellow will be organising a public exhibition on their proposals shortly and we will keep you updated.

Update 19/02/2018

We have been approached by the developer of this brownfield site near the Thames towpath for our initial thoughts on their proposals to develop the site to provide later life care facilities before they make an application. We welcome this early engagement with the local community and will be keeping an eye out for the application. The developer, Red and Yellow, are circulating a Newsletter to local residents asking for comments in a questionnaire.

The Newsletter giving the background to the proposals and showing the location of the site is here: 18 02 16 Red & Yellow Kew Community Newsletter – vF

And the questionnaire is here: 18 02 16 Red & Yellow Kew Community Questionnaire – vF

Or you can reply to the questionnaire on their website here:

We hope you will give your initial thoughts which Red and Yellow ask to be submitted by 2 March.

Update 2/12/2016

This site, at Mellis Avenue, is included in Richmond’s site allocation plan to be redeveloped for housing. The land has now been put up for sale and work is underway by the owner, Thames Water Utilities, to decommission the site no longer needed for waste treatment by the Stag Brewery,

Event Information:

  • Mon
    8:00 pmGood Wine Shop in Kew

    Pippa Hayward from the Good Wine Shop in Kew devised an introductory wine course especially Kew Society members. She's a qualified Wine Educator teaching regularly in London. She loves making sense of her pet subject in an informal and easy going way.

    Pippa says "Whether you're baffled by Burgundy, mad about Malbec, a Sauvignon fan or a Chardonnay phobe, this course will help you find out why you enjoy some wines and not others - amongst other things!"

    The course covered:

    • Learning how to taste like a professional
    • The gardening and cooking bits - what makes a wine taste as it does
    • Comparing New and Old world examples of the same grape
    • Deciphering wine labels

    13 of our members enjoyed the course which ran for 4 Monday evenings from 8pm at the Good Wine Shop in Kew from November 10th to December 1st with each session lasting 90 minutes, starting at 8pm.

    We had a lot of very positive feedback for the course and as a result we shall be planning another very soon.

    Tickets for the whole course (four evenings) cost £80 per person.
