Street Party Raises £1,280 for charity
Despite some typically British weather at the start of the day, this year's Street Party on the 14th September was a huge success.
Our Photo Gallery is now online, so have a look at some of the great photos that were taken on the day, including the Stiletto Racing, Dog Agility, and pictures from the Retro Photo Booth.
As well as being great fun with a fantastic turnout, through the fundraising efforts of the businesses and the generosity of Chiswick's Residents we raised £1,280 for Cancer Recovery, who will be using the money raised to fund two projects in West London - the Children's Cancer Recovery programme, and the Breast Cancer Partnership.
Hannah Bellamy, from Cancer Recovery, says:
"Thank you Devonshire Road! We had such a fun day at the street party and hugely appreciate the support we received from all the shops, Chiswick residents and visitors who made it such a success. Together, we raised £1,280. With funds like that we can send nearly 500 Hugs bears to children undergoing cancer treatment in hospital; nearly 100 Survivor Packs to people living with cancer; or pay the household bills of 5 families who are struggling following a cancer diagnosis. We'll use the money to help people in west London, so everything raised has made a difference to people right here.
Through the street party we also met lots of people in the area who are living with cancer. I want to reiterate that we are here to help, so please get in touch if you're looking for advice or support." Hannah Bellamy, The Cancer Recovery Foundation, email@example.com

New Wine Bar and Restaurant coming to Devonshire Road

"..We feel that our emphasis on carefully sourced, high quality & great value wines alongside our daily-changing seasonal menu will complement Chiswick’s diverse range of bars and restaurants. We are undergoing a comprehensive strip-out of the site and should be on track to open our 50-seat Wine Bar & Restaurant in the middle of September 2013. We look forward greatly to being part of the Chiswick scene.”
Abundance of fun on Devonshire Road!
Last month's Abundance Herbal High Road launch party was a great success, with a fantastic turnout of people enjoying the activities on offer in Devonshire Road.
Amongst the goings-on was Bee and Butterfly cake-decorating and facepaint at Whisk - Barney is shown here decorating his Bee cake, and showing off his matching facepaint! Around 50 children came and decorated cakes at Whisk, as well as taking part in the other events like the fancy dress
We hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did - Top Hat alone gave out around 20 litres of Pimms, so we're sure everyone was having fun!
Following the success of this, and previous year's street events, some of the retailers on Devonshire Road are looking at holding their own event later in the year. If you'd like to see another street party this year, please make sure to tell the Devonshire Road businesses you use!

No goats in the shop, please!
It's been so wet this winter that grass has germinated on the floor of the shop!
As you walk through the door you will be greeted by a lush, green lawn under foot- courtesy of 'LazyLawn'. Its a strange, springy sensation as you walk- come and see for yourself. Unfortunately, due to the installation of grass inside the shop i'm afraid we can no longer allow any sheep or goats or any other grazing animals inside, if you have to bring your sheep shopping then please tether him/her to the lampost outside!
Fox Poo begone...
As anyone who has recently been walking in Chiswick House, Gunnersbury or Ravenscourt Park will know, our canine companions have been making the most of the availability of a favourite aroma: eau de fox poo!
We now have in stock 'Fox Poo Shampoo' specially formulated to attack this pungent aroma and remove it from the dogs' fur, plus for emergencies, a Fox Poo Spritzer- an instant odour illiminator that you spray on the effected area of the dogs coat so that you can stand having the dog near you until such time as you can get home and give him/her a bath!

There were 23 teddies in the window display fun-fair including the polar bear 'dog' on a lead and the two teddies in the hot air balloon!
Christmas Pet Boarding and Home Visits-

Even fish can join in the festivities with christmas tree and snowman tank ornaments. For details of the full Christmas range, see Chiswick Pet's website!
And this years Christmas Window will be...
We are already getting customers asking in the shop as to what theme the Christmas window will take - but we are keeping it as a surprise again this year!
Our 'spokesman' said " It will be a FUN theme that will be appreciated by a FAIR amount of people, a CAROUSEL of Christmas delights will be thrown at you and you will have to DODGEM"
Then he walked off whistling 'If you go down to the woods today, you'd better go in disguise....' How very strange!

Dr Who Competition in-store this month
Inspired by our range of official BBC aquarium ornaments our new window display celebrates the greatest and longest running science fiction series in the world- Doctor Who. Our window is set on the 23rd November 1963 at 5.15pm, in the accomodation over a junkyard in Totters Lane, London.

Can you spot the clues to all 11 Doctors? Keep your eyes open for an entry form in our 'Tardis style' shop (ie its a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside!)

Handbags, Ski Wear and Ugg Boots now cleaned at Top Hat!
Do your boots look tired and worn? Could your handbag use a spruce? Is your Skiwear letting in the weather?
Top Hat now offers specialist cleaning and finishing for Ugg Boots (and similiar), restoring the fresh, fashionable look of the sheepskin and replenishing the natural oils that are depleted through use - enhancing both the look and durability.
We can also clean Ski Wear - normal washing powder will strip the waterproofing, but we use Nikiwax to wash and reproof jackets, salopettes, ski trousers, gloves and hats.
Plus, we are now an agent for the Handbag Spa, and offer a cleaning service for luxury handbag and purse brands.

At Top Hat we like traditions and we’ve built up a few over the 45 years we’ve been cleaning Chiswick, so on Saturday 14th December we will be giving our customers homemade mince pies and a winter warmer cocktail from 10.30 am. We’ll have something soft to drink for the little ones too.
It’s our way of thanking our customers for their continued support and also a chance to meet new people who may decide they would like to give us try. We’ve always thought we should put something back in to the local community that we are part of.
We are also pleased to be welcoming back our friends from the Addison Singers who will be singing Christmas Carols from 1 pm until 2.30 pm
So stop by and grab a little Christmas cheer and have a chat about Dry Cleaning, Rugby, Local Restaurants / Issues / Best Local Shops to buy Christmas presents, anything you like really!
Shop local and remember “we’re all in this together”

Dr Luc Archambault, D.C., chiropractor, has recently joined the team at Optimal Spine. Originally from Canada, Dr Luc Archambault graduated in 1999 from Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, where he obtained his Doctorate of chiropractic. In private practice for 13 years in the Montreal region, he gained a tremendous experience in different successful clinics. He constantly improved his knowledge in clinical neurology and rehabilitation, notably by being a student of the post doctorate Functional Neurology Program of the Carrick Institute and by obtaining his Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP®) General Certification (www.idealspine.com).
In order to allow clients to receive the “state of the art” care in postural and spinal correction, he co-founded a renowned rehabilitation chiropractic center in Québec, the Centre Chiropratique de l’Avenir (www.chiroposture.ca), where he practiced for 7 years. In addition to treating patients with a variety of musculoskeletal syndromes, he also developed an expertise in posture remodeling and management of scoliosis.
"Life is about creating yourself" being his leitmotiv, he is daily in the pursuit of a physical and mental well-being; a harmonious balance between reason and passions. Dr Archambault moved to London (UK) in 2013 and joined Optimal Spine Chiswick in order to pursue his teaching about wellness and prevention. He empowers his patients to become more proactive and responsible in leading a healthier life and in reaching their own innate potential.
