Celebrating Isleworth (in pictures)

As promised, here are some photos from this event held over the weekend. I think they are all self-explanatory but I have added a few comments anyway:

The Isleworth Society (TIS) is 50 years old this year. Deservedly it had pride of place at the exhibition.

TIS Chair Mike Derham introduces the Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow to attendees. I tried about seven times to get Mike to look at the camera. Maybe he's just shy.

ICG Treasurer and former Syon ward councillor Shirley Fisher with the Isleworth Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT).

Isleworth Town School was well represented at the event. Attendees included head teacher Eileen Sheedy.

Our local coat of arms. The previous Mayor Paul Lynch said we could keep this in Isleworth. Colin Ellar referred to it in his speech, let's hope he honours his predecessor's promise.

A well-stocked stall from the Friends of Osterley Park. The park is a great local asset, let's hope it has all the friends it needs.

The popular Isleworth Bowling Club. Johnny Rahman, centre, talked me into joining. I used to think only old people played bowls (no comments please!).

Christine Diwell and Mike Derham from TIS share a joke with The Worshipful Mayor Councillor Colin Ellar (where do they find these absurd, anachronistic titles?).

First prize for the most decorative stall would probably have gone to St. John the Baptist Church. Sean and Michael were too bashful to appear in the photo alongside their excellent work.
