News from the Teddington Society

Tidings, our quarterly magazine, is specially written and distributed to members of the Society. It contains a wide range of news and features, including reports from the groups, items of local interest, photographs, details of local events, and exclusive day trips arranged for members.

Reminders about events are also occasionally emailed to members who have opted in to this service.

  • • The 'Little Ships' return to Teddington

    In bright sunshine, a glorious flotilla of Little Ships gathered at Teddington Lock on the River Thames this weekend, to commemorate the historic evacuation of 385,000 British and Allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk in June 1940.

  • • Come and celebrate with Richmond Theatre – for one day only!

    As part of its celebrations to mark its 120th anniversary, the newly refurbished Richmond Theatre is opening its doors to the public this Sunday, September 15th, for an open day that will give everyone “unrivalled access” to Frank Matcham’s celebrated playhouse on Richmond Green.

  • • The future of the Teddington Village Fair

    Sponsorship for this year’s Teddington Village Fair proved hard to raise and was 50% down on 2018’s Fair.

    A remarkable First World War information resource has been created for the Teddington Society by David Neller, to whom we offer our grateful thanks.

  • • Martin Blaiklock: a Tribute

    Martin Blaiklock - an objective and knowledgeable expert

    We were shocked by the recent news of Martin’s death from cancer on April 2nd in the Princess Alice Hospice. He wasn’t perhaps that well known to the membership, but to the Planning and Transport Groups Martin was held in high regard for his contribution over 20 years to many of the big issues which threated Teddington.

  • • Richmond in Bloom 2019 - time to get planning!

    Richmond in Bloom colour co-ordination!

    Have you noticed the wisteria? It’s everywhere, it’s looking wonderful, and it’s early this year – a sign of good weather ahead? We all hope so, but who knows!
