Four of the residents of Schubert Road, who organized the Jubilee Street Party and who have re-registered this street with Neighbourhood Watch have set up this website/blog with the help of two other residents, for all the residents of Schubert Road.
Thank you to those neighbours who kindly watered the plants,Louise and son Dan do a great job with the gardening club. The herbs have done very well indeed during our warm weather

After 3 1/2 years of service as our Co-Ordinator for the Schubert Road Neighbourhood Watch we are saying goodbye to Louise McMeekin. Although she will still be a resident on the road she will be now be concentrating on her business commitments. Our New Co-Ordinator is Mrs Anne Towner (who has been a long term resident and an active member of the Neighbourhood Watch since it’s inception in 2011). We are sure that Anne will build on the work already done and thank her for taking on this role on all our behalf. If any residents would like to help the Schubert Road Neighbourhood Watch please do get in touch.
Thank you to all those who came to the Schubert Road Bake Off Street Party on Saturday 14th June 2014. Details of money raised and photos will be posted shortly!
See what our MP Justine Greening wrote about Schubert Road’s Bake Off…
The original six month timetable has been drastically reduced. The council’s contractors will be working extended hours to get the £1.5m of repairs completed as quickly as possible.
The vast majority of the works will now be carried out during the school summer holidays when traffic levels are at their lightest. This timetable should also ensure that the bridge will reopen in plenty of time for businesses to take advantage of the busy festive shopping period.
While the works are ongoing pedestrians will still be able to cross the bridge, as will cyclists, although they will need to dismount.
Buses will operate a shuttle service from both ends of the bridge. This means that passengers will need to cross it on foot to continue their journeys.
To achieve a faster turnaround it has been agreed that the permitted hours of working will be as follows:
6am to midnight Monday to Friday
10am to 4pm at weekends
However the contractor has been told to schedule the repairs so that no excessively noisy works are carried out at unreasonable times.
The works schedule has been arranged in close consultation with Transport for London, neighbouring highway authorities, local amenity groups, business representatives and other partners to ensure a high level of co-ordination with other major roadworks in south and west London.
The programme has also been drawn up to avoid impacting on the Wimbledon tennis championships, while the works have been scheduled so that August’s Ride London cycle event, which attracts thousands of professional and amateur bike riders, can still be accommodated.
Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia said: “These works are absolutely vital to protect the internal fabric of the bridge and ensure it lasts another 100 years. Our primary concern is to get this important job done efficiently and quickly so that there is the least amount of disruption to residents, businesses and the wider travelling public.
“Unfortunately a repair job on this scale to an important river crossing means that some degree of disruption is unavoidable, and we are of course very sorry for the inconvenience it will cause, but we have worked very hard to keep this to the absolute minimum.
“And we are giving people as much advance warning as we can so that they have plenty of time to plan alternative routes or look at using other forms of transport to get across the river.”
Not sure how to recycle old clothes and other textiles? They can’t go in with recycling, but there are lots of other ways, including arranging a free collection…

Whilst delivering the Street Party Invitations and Reminders recently, we found that quite a few flat residents were buzzing us in (opening the communal front door from their Entryphone System) without checking who we were. Please don’t do that as you are making it very easy for people to break into your neighbours homes. Any genuine visitor won’t mind waiting until you come to the communal front door nor will they mind giving their credentials. Don’t forget this is a Cold Calling Zone so no one should be asking you to buy something on your doorstep – if they do ask you to buy something – take their details (and give them to neighbourhood watch) and tell them This is a No Cold Calling Zone – fines of up to £5,000 can be made on those not adhering to this.
