From the James to the Thames

The Richmond Society has organised an event next Thursday evening 18th January at 7.45pm, at the Richmond Adult Community College, Parkshot, TW9 2RE.

The speaker is Jason Debney, Coordinator of the Thames Landscape Strategy(Weybridge to Kew) organisation. Thames Landscape Strategy raised almost £10 million to improve Richmond’s Riverside and the view from Richmond Hill during London’s Arcadia Project, and continues to preserve and enhance the Thames between Weybridge and Kew.

Jason is one of our local heroes, and a most charismatic, entertaining and knowledgeable speaker. He will be telling us about what connects the many “Richmonds of the World”, especially the similarities between Richmond Yorkshire, Richmond Surrey and Richmond Virginia, and including a fascinating insight into links between Richmond upon Thames and Pocahontas. Do come along to hear this able speaker, and to meet old friends and make new ones.

    Following a fascinating presentation by Professor Roger Mason earlier this year, the Kew Society have invited Roger to present an update to our members on this incredibly important subject.

    The meeting will provide an update of recent air pollution activities in Kew, including the "Clear Air for Schools" project in the summer and the Kew Society member's project investigating pollution levels outside their houses.

    It will also briefly review recent national and local government policies which impact on our future air quality including the London Mayor's "Transport Strategy", his "Environment Strategy", and Richmond Council's Air Quality Action Plan 2017-2022".
