For many years, John Gordon-Smith and other volunteers at the Friends of the Japanese Garden in Hammersmith Park have been lobbying our Council to install a skimmer to clean up the duck weed in the Japanese Garden. After years of waiting, we finally got the skimmer, which was then almost immediately vandalised.
It isn't clear why anyone would want to smash up the skimmer. But someone, for whatever reason, decided it would be a good plan.

At its heart is the £33 million John Lewis store, which first opened in 2018.

Woody is eight years old, lives in Shepherd's Bush and attends the same school as my own children. He is a little bit different from the other kids; he has autism, and today, Woody's unique way of viewing the world has led to a new line of Lockdown art, including greetings cards, which feature Woody's unique take on life under Lockdown. To see more, and feel a genuine sense of inspiration about the ways in which special needs can indeed lead to special gifts, watch the BBC video above. To support Woody and buy his art, go the official site at www.woodism.co.uk.

Knowing the problem of bicycle theft in London, my solution has always been to own an ancient bike that no-one in their right mind would bother to steal; in my case, an ancient Raleigh ladies bike of uncertain vintage.
