Welcome to the first issue of our second year together. Summer has gone and now Autumn is here. Fittingly the front cover photo, taken by my wife, is a sight that we all will be seeing a lot of over the coming months. I hope you all had a fun and healthy summer and are looking forward to what is one of our most beautiful seasons.

Wellies on and head to Bushy Park!

In this month’s issue we look at the 100th anniversary of the Esher Molesey Garden Society, the real heroes
behind the breaking of the Enigma Code, and the early beginnings of Hampton Court Station. We also learn about the Danish concept of “Hygge”, perfect for the coming months. Della continues her wildlife blog, and Dominic Raab updates us on flood insurance.
