Richmond raft seriously damaged

Many people passing along Petersham Meadows upstream of Richmond look out for Ian Hamilton’s makeshift raft near the left bank.

I hear that his 20 year old home was nearly destroyed by fire a week ago. The local fire service did what it could from the bank whilst the fireboat was on its way from Lambeth.

The remains I understand are still near Glover’s Island and Ian Hamilton is hoping to relaunch the raft after repairs have been made.
