THE PASSING OF JOHN SCOTT: THE NOTTING HILL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY

Though our Borough is replete with interesting personalities the death of John Scott is an especially sad loss.

Besides being a preeminent collector of Decorative Arts( THE FINE ART SOCIETY has his collection) John was a doughty fighter for the small shopkeepers of Notting Hill and a driving force of the Notting Hill Improvement Society.
John will be very much missed.

The BBC recently reported on this fascinating NHIS idea to brighten up a part of Notting Hill LINK 

TOTT BRILL


The Dame is sad to report the death of Tott Brill. 
As Assistant Chief Executive of the Council she was responsible for the implementation of the Exhibition Road shared surface and the transfer of Opera Holland Park into private hands.

The Dame and Tott had their tussles but it is always sad to report such news of someone so young and talented.
