At the time of writing I am hopeful that our summer will have started. The Hampton Court Flower Show, Wimbledon fortnight and the Baseball’s Coming Home event would dearly love some blue skies. In this month’s issue we look at the women of Wimbledon tennis, get an update on the Eco Park, and learn of the origins of Elmbridge Borough Council. We offer some ideas to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

We learn the history of one of our lost taverns, the Duke’s Head and again this month’s recipe comes from the Community Café at the Riverhouse Barn Both the MRA and Dominic Raab also update on issues close to our hearts. Remember this a double issue. So see you again in September.
