My St Margarets Magazine - Spring 'Jubilee' 2012 Edition

my stmar mag spring 2012 cover

Hello and welcome to this rather special edition of My St Margarets magazine.

For me, featured in this edition, are three must do visits - The Richmond Museum, Orleans Gallery and the Turner House. The twice yearly Fairs are so much fun and a good chance to catch up with friends and neighbours. This year’s Jubilee Fair in Crown Road on Sunday 3rd June sounds absolutely amazing. The fair is the traditional street fair that we all love and also a Jubilee celebration party. What could be better than enjoying the live music, street entertainers, the fun and games and then sitting down to a nice Jubilee tea with friends and neighbours!

Highlights in this edition include Martyn Day’s fascinating article about Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and I was really taken by Chas’s article on antiques, I am amazed at the prices being fetched by some of the Titanic memorabilia. The centre pages feature a recent shopping trip made by a very special visitor who seems to have thoroughly enjoyed her visit to St Margarets - with so many independent specialist shops everyone is at home in St Margarets.

I must also mention the Olympic Games, I thought with the games coming to London that it would be appropriate to include a section dedicated to the games, health and fitness. Local resident Jamie relays how he will become an Olympic torch bearer, The Broncos rugby team share with us what they are looking forward to watching at the games and in an attempt to inspire you to perhaps take part in future games Sarah from Pilates Plus and Jason from Movement3 offer some fitness tips. Finally before I go I must mention the wonderful sense of community that exists in St Margarets. Editing this magazine has really bought home to me how wonderful the community is and how we can all do our bit to support those who support us. The St Margarets Traders have a phrase ‘Where you have a choice - please shop with the heart’ I intend to and I hope you will too.

Happy Jubilee celebrations and enjoy the Olympics!
