Caz Buckingham is a local resident whose company, Fine Feather Press, publishes outstanding wildlife books for children.

In this exhibition for Hampton Wick Library, Caz presents stunning photographs of very local wildlife, aiming to inspire everyone to visit our local parks this summer.

To accompany the exhibition there is a FREE children’s wildlife and colouring competition with prizes of Fine Feather Press children’s wildlife books.

The exhibition runs at the Library throughout July and August.

Cucumber sandwiches all round!

Queen Victoria Memorial at the Library

On 20th July the HWA and the Friends of the Library co-hosted public event to mark the renovation of the Queen Victoria Jubilee Memorial and its setting at the entrance to the Library. The event was attended by more than 60 people who enjoyed fruit punch and cucumber sandwiches while listening to speeches by Cllr Tony Arbour and HWA Chair Mark Merrington. Cllr Arbour then unveiled a plaque kindly provided by Richmond Housing Partnership. Click here to see a video of the event (thanks to local film-maker Alan Benns).
