Canine Behaviour: the key to a well-behaved hound
Wednesday 21 March, Duchess of Cambridge, 320 Goldhawk Rd, W6 0XF, 6.30pm for 7pm
Author Nigel Reed – ‘The Dog Guardian’ – reveals his easy to follow method for a happy and well-behaved dog in a 30 minute talk.
A bestselling author on Amazon, he has successfully practised his method on thousands of dogs over the past 15 years. The information he shares will give an insight into how to communicate with your dog in a language they understand. In turn you will be empowered to address any behavioural problems and become a kind and non-confrontational leader that your dog respects and feels safe with. The talk takes place upstairs at the Duchess of Cambridge, 20 Goldhawk Rd, W6 0XF, 6.30pm for 7pm, on 21 March. To ensure the evening runs smoothly it is advisable to leave your dog at home!
Council boost for Askew Road
Dear residents and local businesses
Allow me to introduce myself: I am Jason Grant from Hammersmith and Fulham Council, and have started working with local communities to boost business and improve the area.
I enjoyed my recent visit to Askew Road and met representatives of several local enterprises. Now I would like to gain a better understanding of your business concerns – maybe there are issues that need to be addressed or other changes that could be made. There may even be something we could introduce to improve the environment and hopefully also your business.
I would be delighted to come and see you – ideally on a date when I can sit down with a group of you, so we can thrash out suggestions/ideas collectively.

Useful neighbourhood Apps
We would also like to bring to your attention some “Apps” which may be useful for you.
1 – NEXTDOOR
There is an ‘App’ called “NEXTDOOR” which is for ‘neighbours’ in your area as defined in your settings. The website is https://askew.nextdoor.co.uk/.
“NEXTDOOR is the private social network for you, your neighbours and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbours to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free.
NEXTDOOR’s mission is to provide a trusted platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world”.
People are using NEXTDOOR, for example, to:
Borrow a ladder, organise a Neighbourhood Watch Group, track down a trustworthy babysitter, find out who does the best paint job in town or ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog.
Specifically in the Askew Ward recently there have been notices of items being offered for sale (hamster cage, etc.), the Christmas comes to Starch Green notice, Yoga classes, piano teaching, flats for rent, etc.
2 – “LOVE CLEAN STREETS” [also “H&F REPORT IT”]
This App enables you to report items of concern to the Council and is easy to use and effective ….
Once set up click on “Begin”, Click on the map to show where is the problem, take a photo of the problem and give a description, add hashtag and category and then “Send”.
