We are delighted to unveil the new Chiswick Calendar website, which we have been working on for the past six months.
It is faster, more automated and more secure, with some snazzy new design features, for which I have to thank Chiswick based web developer Dawn Wilson, whose patience matches her talent as a designer.
Most people go to the website to read the articles introduced in our weekly newsletter, so you will be pleased to know each story is now available in our new News & Features section, easily accessible from the menu, with separate sections for news, features and guest blogs.
See where you can use your Club Card, to get the best discounts in Chiswick. Make your money go further and support our local businesses at the same time.
You’ll notice that our daily events listings look different , thanks to Andy Chitty of Exigen (another Chiswick local), and his brilliant programming skills. His assistance in the development of this website has been greatly appreciated.
See what’s on today, including the award- winning film, The Living Thames – ‘an odyssey along the river as it meanders through London’ at 7.30pm at Chiswick Pier; as well as our own general election event.

Maybe you’re new to the area and just want to get a sense of what the place is like. See This Is Chiswick – a kind of Chis-wiki (geddit?! You’ve no idea how proud I am of that!) of Chiswick People, Places and Organisations.
If you’re looking to buy some original art, to find a fitness activity which suits your needs, or you fancy doing a bit of volunteer work, have a trawl through the directories of artists, fitness and volunteering in Chiswick.

Buy us a coffee
And if you’re just thinking what a marvellous website this is, you can now Buy us a coffee. We are a Community Interest Company, so any profit we make goes back in the pot to pay for the website as a community resource.
For that and other gizmos, and general problem solving wizardry, I have to thank software engineer James Willcocks, newly graduated and looking for more work…
Huge thanks also to our sponsors. John D Wood & Co, Hogarth Club and Asahi for giving us the wherewithal to be able to upgrade the site.
We’d love your feedback on the site – good or ill. Pages that don’t load, links that don’t work, random bits of Latin which crop up where they shouldn’t – but mainly of course what a lovely, user friendly website it is!
We know that you will have the best user experience will be by using an up to date version of Chrome as your browser. The least good combination is using Safari as your browser on a Mac desktop or laptop (though Safari on hand held Mac devices is fine).
