William Bowyer 1926 - 2015

Born in Staffordshire in 1926, Bowyer trained as an artist at night while toiling in a coal mine during the day as a Bevin Boy. At the Royal College of Art he was taught by those great advocates for figurative art in Britain, Ruskin Spear and Carel Weight—mentors who went on to become life-long friends. His work is firmly rooted in the nitty-gritty of everyday life and tied to very specific places—particularly the Thames near his London home in Chiswick and the Suffolk coast between Dunwich and Southwold. He put down deep roots in both places and until his recent serious illness was noted for being out and about with his paints and easel at all times of day and in all weathers.

CarolServiceStamford Brook Residents were invited to join the congregation of the Seventh Day Adventist Church for their annual Carol Service in December. It was lots of fun and very musical with local children acting out a Nativity scene, carols, mince pies and lots more including an collection for Acton Homeless Concern. 

For many of us this was the first chance we get to have look inside the new Church building, which opened in Stamford Brook this year and to hear their adult and children's Gospel Choirs sing.  

Many of you will remember how amazing it was when the choir from the SDA Church joined us for our Jubilee Fete on Stamford Brook Common a few years ago. It would be wonderful to get as many local families to join us at their Carol Service.  

It was great to see so many Stamford Brook locals attend

 

A new plan to bury the A4 between Hammersmith and the Hogarth Roundabout has been proposed.  A group of architects in Brook Green have created a concept scheme to gauge interest and support.

The Harclow Group were responding to the fears that the Hammersmith Flyover may need replacing eventually, and have proposed a more environmentally friendly approach to taking traffic through the hammersmith junction.  Residents with a keen memory will remember that this was first proposed in 2008 (see 'Plans To Expose The Brook').

The full design and idea will be on show in Lyric Square, Hammersmith, between 11am and 5pm on Saturday, June 23 where residents can quiz architects on their idea.

On 13 December, there was an exhibition at the Town Hall of the two outline plans being proposed by developers for the Town Hall site. Planning permission will not be applied for until well into 2013. Both will contain a small cinema and neither will have the proposed brideg over the A4. No building will be more than eight floors high. One scheme involves a building within the footprint of the Town Hall extension but with a two floor and 15 metre wide arch within it - to allow the old Town Hall facade to be visible from King Street.
