Change to speed limit in Hampton Hill High Street
The speed limit in Hampton Hill High Street is to be reduced to 20 miles per hour after a public consultation in which just over half of the respondents wanted the reduction.

51 percent said yes to the change but in Whitton and Heathfield the majority of residents opposed the idea, so the speed limit there will remain the same.

Residents in Kew broadly agreed with a lower speed limit in principle, but the responses did not translate into a majority support for changing the limit on Kew’s residential or main roads.

CNM has come under criticism in recent years for holding on to the old Gala Bingo Hall in Kingston (pictured below).

Seven-try spectacle for Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop
Harlequins gave their fans something to sing about when they faced London Welsh at the Twickenham Stoop.

The rugby union home side went into round 5 just four places from the bottom of the English Premiership table. Their opponents had not won a premiership game this season.

There was good news for Harlequins this week as Nick Evans returned to the number 10 shirt and Tom Casson made his first appearance since the start of the new calendar. Matt Hopper and Joe Gray concluded the four changes to the side which lost last week away to Exeter Chiefs.

London Welsh started proceedings. It was a sloppy start and a knock on from the visitors handed the first scrum of the game to Quins. The home side's dominance in the scrum escalated into a penalty, however it was sliced short for a lineout just inside the Welsh 22.

Quins collected, formed a maul, and passed out wide for no. 15 Mike Brown to cross within 3 minutes - his 50th premiership try. Evans added the conversion 7-0.

Welsh restarted and Quins attempted to run the ball from inside their half. Another scrum to Quins and another penalty. This time a well placed kick earned the home side a good attacking lineout. This was, however, a wasted opportunity as the ball was deemed not to have been thrown straight.

Quins no. 8 Nick Easter gathered the ball, kicked to safety by the visitors, and started the run back up the field. Although they ended up in touch, Welsh threw the lineout ball long allowing Quins to claim possession and run it back into the visitor's 22.

The home side were playing with fast hands and swift feet. No. 9 Danny Care crossed for the second try of the game and Nick Evans converted - Quins found themselves 14-0 up after 15 minutes.

London Welsh had the opportunity to open their scorecard just a few minutes later after Quins went to ground, handing the visitors a penalty. Already two converted tries down, The Exiles opted to kick for a lineout instead of taking the three points between the posts. They were then awarded advantage after Quins failed to release a tackled player. Despite being right in front of the posts, the visitors again opted for a lineout.

On this occasion Harlequins stole possession and pushed back to the half way line. The home side remained dominant in the scrum and London Welsh knocked on time and again. These scrums turned into penalties. Evans added another three points to the Harlequins tally 17-0 after a quarter of play.

London Welsh made ground following the restart but staunch defence from the home side forced an error by The Exiles. Quins stole possession and Brown kicked play into the opposition's half - an awkward kick forcing a knock on and scrum to Quins.

In a heart-stopping moment London Welsh no. 7 McCaffrey intercepted a loose pass and proceeded into Quins territory. He spilled the ball during a tackle handing the home side a scrum, which again turned into a penalty.

Quins retained possesion following the lineout and threatened the try line. However errors started to creep into play.

With less than 10 minutes of the first half remaining, the ball was now within Quins 22 but with a scrum to the home side. They won the ball and passed to Evans who cleared. London Welsh no. 23 Crane felt the pressure of the game and dropped the high ball allowing Quins to press again from yet another scrum.

Just outside the visitors 22 and Quins knocked on handing a scrum, then penalty, to The Exiles who kicked for a lineout just over the half way line. A second penalty brought them into Quins 22. They formed a maul, advantage was being played, but they could not break through the Quins defence. Again they opted for a lineout which the home team stole.

Another penalty was awarded and Evans kicked for a lineout. It was thrown short to Robshaw and another penalty was soon awarded whilst London Welsh no. 2 Britton was spoken to by the referee. The kick into touch ended first half of play.

Half Time: Harlequins 17 - 0 London Welsh

(Half time replacement for Harlequins - Will Collier on for Kyle Sinckler)

It was breathtaking play as the second half kicked off. Quins no.14 Marland Yarde crossed for his first try for the club following a break by Brown. Evans added the conversion, albeit creeping through the posts: 24-0.

Quins found themselves with a scrum after play resumed. Again this turned into a penalty which Evans placed deep in the corner. They secured the lineout and no. 13 Matt Hopper added the important fourth try for a bonus point. Evans again added the conversion: 31-0 with 34 minutes still to play.
The afternoon refused to improve for London Welsh who found themselves with a lineout deep within Quins 22 but immediately the home side came away with a scrum.

The Exiles continued to push with another lineout, pressuring the try line. Advantage turned into penalty but the visitors again kicked for a lineout. Possession was stolen and the ball kicked to safety.

Errors started to creep into the home side's play and a scrum-turned-penalty was awarded to London Welsh after a forward pass.

Then came a period of play where possession changed hands through knock ons and scrums. Both sides now making as many errors as the other.

Play had to be stopped as London Welsh no.18 Eddie Aholelei was stretchered from the field.

Quins resumed on the attack and the visitors were penalised for not rolling away. The home side opted for a scrum but a loose pass found touch instead of Yarde who was on the wing and in perfect position to dart for the whitewash.

A lineout went to London Welsh who secured the ball but then kicked it away allowing Quins to come again. More misery for The Exiles as no. 14 Stegmann was shown a yellow card for a high tackle on Karl Dickson. A penalty try was awarded and Evans added the conversion: 38-0 with just 15 minutes left.

The home side were awarded another attacking platform after The Exiles sliced a clearance into touch. London Welsh, however, stole the ball and pushed into the home side's half. It was not long before Quins stole it back and attempted to run out of their 22.

A beautiful break by Brown and chip over allowed Dickson to collect and cross for another try, again converted by Evans: 45-0 with 11 minutes left.

After a period of collapsing scrums the referee Dean Richards produced two yellow cards - one each for Collier of Harlequins and Henn of London Welsh.

Quins remained dominant and after being handed the ball by The Exiles, they kicked long into the corner. The visitors won lineout ball and formed a maul. They chose to kick but it was caught securely by no. 20 Joe Trayfoot. Quins again pushed forward and Yarde darted over securing the seventh try of the game (and his second) for the home side. Evans converted: 52-0 with just over 1 minute left.

Play was brought to a close and the fans had witnessed a dominating performance from Harlequins - seven converted tries and a penalty. Nick Evans scored 100% of his kicks.

Luke Wallace was named Man of the Match in front of over 13,500 spectators.

Full Time: Harlequins 52 - 0 London Welsh
This performance by Quins means they are now three wins from five games, moving them up to the middle of the table. Next Friday they face Leicester Tigers away at Welford Road.
