Inflation Watch - Spending squeeze Inflation has been accelerating in recent months, partly as a result of the fall in the pound after the Brexit vote, which has raised import prices. March recorded inflation at 2.3% Although the inflation rate remained unchanged from February, it remains above the Bank of England’s target of 2% and is the highest since September 2013. “Inflation may be steady, but it’s still currently outpacing wages and interest rates, which spells trouble for households and cash savers,” said Laith Khalaf, senior analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown. “The inflationary squeeze that’s coming is going to mean consumers have to spend more at the checkouts and petrol pumps, and that Sunflower Celebrations For Bedford Park Festival’s Golden Jubilee We are now on Instagram where we hope to share with you some lovely images of the properties we have to offer plus all that goes on behind the scenes.

Andrew Nunn first worked in Chiswick 30 years ago and says: “My passion for Bedford Park lies in the architecture and classical detail of the houses and the preservation of that detail over the years - combined with the fascinating history and foresight of folk like Jonathan Carr in developing the first garden suburb.” The organisers of this year’s Bedford Park Festival are asking residents to brighten the area with sunflowers. There’ll be a sunflower-growing competition, a Jubilee Garden Party and exhibitions of posters, programmes and photographs to mark the 50th anniversary of Chiswick’s biggest community event. The sunflower is the symbol of the Festival and can be seen in the brickwork of many of the houses. As well as growing them from seed to enter the competition, residents are being encouraged to buy sunflowers to display in their windows and front gardens in June and throughout the summer. The Golden Jubilee Festival runs from June 9th to 25th and will also feature early posters of annual highlights such as the Bedford Park Summer Exhibition, the Open Gardens, the Festival Mass and the Poetry Evening. Festival-goers are invited to submit their own memorabilia and photographs for display online in the Bedford Park Festival Archive. The Sunflower Growing Competition will be judged at the Plant Stall on June 10th.
