The bridge remains closed to vehicles indefinitely, as our Council, TFL and central government argue over who should pay.
Last year there were protests over the failure of the responsible authorities to tackle the problem, but these have not yet resulted in a successful plan to re-open the bridge to cars and buses.

"We're in favour", said locals, "but can we keep our existing residents' parking bays please?" Luckily for us, LBHF said "yes", and put the new charging bay in a place where it didn't take up any existing residents' bays.

The camp is set up in a defensive circle, presumably to keep out intruders.
The people living in the camp seem to be the same folks who were protesting Lockdown and vaccination last weekend.

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.

But where is this forest? And how do you get there? Turns out, it isn't that easy to find, and there isn't any legitimate public access.

|John Lewis to re-open at Westfield|
This will be reassuring to those who had feared that the flagship store might be on the list of post-Lockdown closures; John Lewis lost over £500m in the last financial year.Westfield, which is currently almost deserted, will again become Europe's biggest shopping mall once it re-opens after Lockdown ends. 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.

|Scaffolding goes up at St Stephen's|
It has taken the best part of a decade to raise the money, largely through the dogged efforts of Juliet Byford, chair of the St Stephen's Roof Committee.
St Stephen's is an inclusive church that welcomes people from many different backgrounds, a place where diverse communities come together.

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.

|Spot the real Mr Twit|
On World Book Day, every child in full-time education is given a voucher to be spent on books; the event was first celebrated in the UK in 1995.
Local primary school St Stephen's Head Teacher Michael Schumm got into the spirit, leading the dressing-up as a very plausible Mr Twit from Roald Dahl's classic children's tale "The Twits".

And, yet here is one today, on the Uxbridge Rd, freshly painted, in all its garish finery, as if to say "look at me, I'm a yellow post box. What are you going to do about it?"
There is even a helpful chalk mark on the ground announcing "wet paint" to prove its newness.
What can this mean? Is the Post Office changing its colours? Or perhaps they have run out of red paint?
