Mrs Coopers Nursery School in Gaston Bridge Road
- Published June 4th, 2012
Every day 20 children would come to our home and have a lot of fun and also get the basics of reading, writing and sums before they started 'proper' school. My mum was supported in running the school by Mrs Estelle Cranton. It would be marvellous to hear from anybody who attended the school.
Now in her late 80s my Mum would be touched beyond measure to hear from any of "her children" from the school.

- Published February 27th, 2012
River users were asked to rate the service at locks along the river in the Thames Waterways Awards and consider maintenance, information and gardening.
The awards covered the rural River Thames between Lechlade and Teddington.
The Environment Agency said Shepperton took top place, with special commendations for four others.
Pinkhill, Romney, Osney and Marsh were also praised by river users.
Shepperton lock-keeper Steve Newman said: "A big thank you to all my customers that voted for Shepperton Lock this year.
"It's a lot of hard work for myself and the team but it's always worth it just for the lovely remarks we receive."
He added: "The Thames has always had a good reputation for its lovely gardens and this competition can only enhance its reputation for being the best-manned waterway in the world. Long may it continue."

"She was on the floor for about an hour while the ambulance were there."
The womanwas taken to St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south London with serious leg injuries.
The road was closed for just over three hours and was fully re-opened by the afternoon.
Speaking at the scene, a Surrey Police officer said: "There was an incident involving an elderly female pedestrian and a van. It was quite a serious injury to her leg, to what extent we don't know.
"There is no issue of blame at this stage, it is too early to say."
