So the Carnival is over for another year. Well done to all involved. Much bigger this year I thought. Turn to pages 6 and 7 for the roundup, and put June 8th 2019 in your diaries as we celebrate all over again!

Summer is here, do make the most of it! The Molesey Regatta, The Hampton Court Flower Show and Wimbledon Fortnight are musts for me.

In this month’s issue we hear about the Hampton Court Bridges from Molesey Matters reader John Taylor, learn about Capability Brown’s exploits in the area, and delve into the history of the House of Compassion in Thames Ditton.

Della’s now famous Urban Wildlife blog continues, and both the MRA and Dominic Rabb update us on developments in the political sphere.

If you are a runner, take a look at page 19. The River Thames Half Marathon is offering £2 off entry through Molesey Matters.

Enjoy the month and see you in August
