HELP US TO MAKE TEDDINGTON EVEN BETTER

Teddington is often voted the Best Town in which to live. In 2023 the Teddington Society will have worked for 50 years to make it a better place to live and work. But now we long serving members must look to the next 50 years and we need new members of all ages. We want new ideas to enhance the existing good things we do.

We began in 1973 to stop overdevelopment spoiling the riverside. We founded the Friends of Bushy Park, the Teddington Voluntary Care Group, restored the Christmas Lights and the Village Fair, and we supply Christmas food parcels to the Council Welfare department who said this: “The Teddington Society provides such a wonderfully proactive role in our community.” You may have seen our litter pickers round town, and as the photo below shows, they are all ages, shapes and sizes! Some of the younger members are doing it as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

We donate equipment to the RNLI and recently presented a life-saving defibrillator to Elleray Hall (see our story in the right-hand panel). But we also need your ideas, suggestions and help in doing the things we do now. We have a lot of brains but we lack brawn – we need an infusion of younger strong volunteers. So please get in touch and offer what help you can. It could be stuffing envelopes, delivering Tidings, moving tables and chairs, writing items, all manner of activities. Do please get in touch and offer your services because, quite simply, we can’t do without you.
