Chairman’s Welcome

Items of interest:

Pop-Up Museum - History & Heritage Collection 13th October and 20th October -  this was a Hounslow planned event which for certain reasons did not happen – I attend the first session but unfortunately I was the only one Roger and I attend the second session and yes we were the only ones – whether this will eventually happen is a Hounslow mystery. The vision, however, is to have a ‘unit’ of some kind (Shipping Container) placed east of the High Street which will display a collection of History and Heritage

Hounslow Heath ‘wild walk’ and ‘history hike’ Saturday 21st October 11am -3pm - this event was organised by Hounslow as a means to encourage people to become more active and thereby be more healthy – this was for all ages youngest walker being 4 years and a real ‘walker and talker’ she was – she could have been our guide! the walk was interspersed with local history particularly of the Heath – led by a latter day ‘Moll Cutpurse’ garbed for the part ‘highway mans cape and mask and tricorn hat who whisked us at high speed from way post to way post whereon were depictions of other things that may have been seen on the heath. This was followed by another demon dressed as a Bee who also sped from ‘way post’ to ‘way post’ enlightening us ‘young and old’ of the horticultural delights of the heath and the dangers of such creatures such as Adders and Muntjak alike. All in all it was a very good event.
