Wickham Avenue Ditch Cleared

by Mary Burstow on 17 January, 2015

  Many thanks to the Nonsuch Park Joint Management Committee (JMC) for getting the Wickham Avenue ditch dug out. The work was carried out by RJ Dance( www.rjdance.co.uk ) in November 2014, using a mini digger and has clearly made a vast improvment.

Dead Tree on London Road

by Mary Burstow on 3 December, 2011

I saw a whole series of rather dead looking trees along the London Road, between Wickham Avenue and Nonsuch Park.  I am told that they are Elm Trees.  As they all look rather rotten and could fall down into the path of passing traffic I reported them to Transport for London.  I am pleased to […]
