Sherland Road, Twickenham where the garages on the left are the subject of an application for demolition in favour of affordable housing. Plans 08/4195/FUL submitted by Paragon Community Housing Group of Hampton provide for two storey, three bedroom terraced houses with a bedroom in roof space. Six parking places would be created and the site landscaped with refuse and cycle parking provided. Scores of public comments have been left on the council’s planning website. Protesters fear that, “our cherished trees and award winning community planted area (eight awards to date) would be destroyed. We have worked so hard to create this little urban oasis in the road and more 50 species of biodiversity would be lost and the wide variety of visiting birds - from goldfinches to woodpeckers, would lose their regular feeding ground.”

Our photograph shows club member Gordon Peel and club president Mark Scudamore carrying out the interviews at the school in Fifth Cross Road, Twickenham. This is the third year that the club has assisted with the project, which allows students to practise their pre-interview preparation and then interview skills.
