LB Hounslow’s Director of Public Health, Kelly O’Neill, will be speaking at the Chiswick Area Forum on Tuesday 12 January. The meeting starts at 7.00pm. She will be giving an update on how LB Hounslow is coping with the Covid crisis.

Laura Ellener, Head Teacher at Chiswick School  will also be giving her report. The school has recently started Rapid Covid testing of staff and students who are not showing any symptoms of the illness. Staff are teaching children considered vulnerable and the children of key workers on site, while teaching the rest of their students remotely. They are also working through the implications of exams being cancelled in 2021.

Chairman Cllr John Todd has also invited Xanthe Arvanitakis, Director of Chiswick House Trust, to speak about how Chiswick House is faring and PS Rich Reagan to give a policing update.

The Chiswick Area Forum is a public meeting in which local councillors discuss with residents the impact of council business on their local area. Before the pandemic our local meetings were usually small affairs, held in Chiswick Town Hall, with the nine Hounslow councillors who represent Chiswick on Hounslow Council in attendance and a small audience of local people.

Now the meeting is held online, it’s become a lot more accessible. Tuesday’s meeting starts at 7.00pm. Go here to join the meeting online.

The Chiswick Calendar will report on the meeting. You can find our news reports here.
