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.
