Well wasn’t the Flower Show great. Hopefully you managed to get along. The front cover this month is of the scarecrow made by Hampton School as part of this years scarecrow competition. Well done to all involved. Also congratulations go out to the Esher & Molesey Garden Society on winning an RHS Gold and to Miles and Bird in Bridge Road on winning the RHS Hampton Court Village in Bloom “Best Dressed Window” Competition.

In this month’s issue we learn the history of Platt’s Eyot and Thornycroft. We look back at this year’s Hanworth Classic, and we hear about the seal in Molesey.

Turner’s house in Twickenham completes its restoration and the Molesey Local History Society celebrates its 10th anniversary.
We are also updated by both Dominic Raab and the Molesey Residents Association.

See you all next month when Molesey Matters will be celebrating its 1st birthday!
