Introducing guest editor Lucinda MacPherson

I’m off to New Zealand for six weeks, leaving you in the capable hands of Lucinda Macpherson, known to many in Chiswick for her involvement with Chiswick House, Chiswick Pier Trust and Emery Walker’s house in Hammersmith. 

She’ll be writing the next seven newsletters. Whereas my cultural reference points range from Steptoe and Son to Star Wars and UB 40 to Cher (seeing her in concert later this year), Lucinda’s more of a Classics and Opera kinda gal, though she does have a (blind) soft spot for the Eurovision Song Contest. 

My main proviso is that you shouldn’t like her newsletters more than mine. I’ll be back in March.
