Many thanks to Dick Langford and Tim de Ferrars for writing a song for us: QUEEN CAROLINE'S LAMENT. It's great. Have a listen.

We are residents of the Queen Caroline Estate. It is situated by the side of the River Thames in Hammersmith, London and it is a wonderful place to live. This area has been home to many of us for many years.
We are appalled and saddened by the Conservative run Council's aim to knock down our estate and force us out of the homes we love.
Our Petition for Residents We are currently approaching all our neighbours on the estate with a petition that calls on Hammersmith and Fulham Council NOT TO:
· Sell off Queen Caroline Estate property · Demolish any part of the estate · Re-locate residents against their will
It takes time of course to visit everyone on the estate so please be patient if we haven’t got to you yet. If you would like to sign please email us to let us know your address and when would be a suitable time to call. If you wish you can take an active part in asking your neighbours to sign as well; this will speed things up considerably. Please be assured that we won’t pass your details on to anyone else.
