The Macmillan
Coffee Morning

The Macmillan Coffee Morning will be held on Friday 26 September 2014, 10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., in the Residents’ Clubroom, Brentford Dock. This will be part of the Macmillan “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”, which is an annual event to raise funds for Macmillan Nurses who care for cancer patients, both in their homes and in hospices.

The Great River Race

This year's Race is on Saturday 27 September 2014 - 21.6 Miles from London Docklands to Ham in Surrey and you can watch it from Brentford Dock's river bank. Our traditional BBQ returns this year to celebrate the event and to raise money for the RLNI. The chief cook is our 'lockkeeper' Steve, so all you have to bring are drinks.

Salon Privé Photos

We went over to the super car show Salon Privé in Syon Park and took some photos in their parking lot...
