New stories added to this website

Two new stories have been added to the Heroes of Chiswick website here

The first describes the role the Vicar's wife, Mrs Shelford, during the early years of the newly built and consecrated St Michael's Church in Elmwood Road and during World War 1.

The second tells the story of the Hostel for Belgian Refugees at Wellesley House, 20 Wellesley Road. The house was generously placed at the church's disposal by Dr and Mrs Grevile of Kew and the parishioners rose the challenge of creating and sustaining a hostel for the refugees who began to arrive soon after the outbreak of war.

Soup lunch on 7th March 2015

We are pleased to report that the soup lunch to raise money for the Red Cross and the St Michael's Church Memorial Regilding Appeal was well attended and a total of £200 was raised. This is being divided between the two charities. We would like to thank all those who generously gave and also those who gave time and energy in producing the home made soups, cakes and other lunch items on offer.
