The story of Kew Pond

Update 20/09/2017

Some of you will already know the story of Kew Pond, on the north east corner of Kew Green, and how it is maintained today by local volunteers working with Richmond Council. We are featuring it in our latest Newsletter but here is a longer article all about its history, how it was saved from being filled in, and how it is looked after today by the Friends of Kew Pond, led by Diana Dunrossil, as a well loved part of the unique heritage of Kew :Kew Pond History

    We are delighted that Lucinda Ganderton has agreed to talk to The Kew Society. She will reveal how Queen Victoria's laundry was washed in Richmond and transported here by a special train. The Royal laundry, designed by Prince Albert, stood in Kew Foot Road and for nearly 80 years dealt with a vast amount of royal washing from bloomers and petticoats to table linen and cleaning cloths.

    Bring along your friends & neighbours for this evening. Doors open at 6.45pm.

    Tickets are £3 for members and £5 for non members.
