Remembrance Sunday

Sunday 13th November

Last updated: Wednesday 12th October 2016

This year Remembrance Sunday falls on 13th November.

Hampton Wick will again turn out en masse to process down the High Street to the Memorial Garden where a short service will conclude with the sounding of the Last Post at 11am.

Please join us in showing respect and gratitude to those who have fallen and to those currently serving in the armed forces.

Meet outside the Foresters Pub from 10am for a 10.30 start to the Procession.

A direct bus route to Richmond?

Temporary arrangement sparks debate

Last updated: Sunday 14th August 2016

Owing to building works on the Kingston side of the river the 65 bus is currently being diverted over Kingston Bridge, through Hampton Wick, Lower Teddington, Strawberry Hill, Twickenham, and then to Richmond.

Despite receiving little or no publicity, this temporary service is being very well used on this side of the river and the HWA and our friends at the Teddington Society are starting a campaign for a permanent route. To be clear, we are not suggesting that the 65 should be permanently re-routed – merely that the temporary route has highlighted a demand for a bus that takes people directly from Hampton Wick to Richmond via Tedddington and Twickenham.

The train service to Richmond is only twice an hour, reducing to once an hour on Sundays (assuming no engineering works). Furthermore, neither Hampton Wick station nor Richmond station is accessible for those who can’t manage steps.

Currently two buses are required to get from Hampton Wick to Richmond via Twickenham, so the attraction of one bus is that it is cheaper and quicker (no extra waiting) plus even cheaper than rail fares.

The point is made good by the fact that if today you ask TFL’s Journey Planner how to get from Hampton Wick to Richmond it suggests one obvious route: the 65 bus!
