The Silk Gallery was established in 1989 and is a leading UK based design house for furnishing fabrics. Kathryn Thimpson originated the business when as a leading interior designer she was determined to create a collection of fabrics in the specific colours which her projects then required but were generally unavailable.
Kathryn designs and sources her own fabrics and in doing so was from the outset determined to ensure that all manufacture is undertaken under her supervision in the United Kingdom. The Silk Gallery remains a very British Company in the sense that (uniquely in today’s industry for a company of its size and influence) its entire range of fabrics is either woven or hand printed in the UK.
Timeless classical themes have always been the inspiration for The Silk Gallery’s innovative designs. The creativity of the designs is also evident in the production process itself. The core fabric used is silk, but through years of experience and testing the company has developed yam combinations that enhance both durability and the natural characteristics of the silk. New and distinctive texture, totally unique to The Silk Gallery have been created by teaming silk with linen cotton, wool and polyester; offering fabrics in a combination of qualities and weights in a wide variety of uses.
A major part of the work undertaken by The Silk Gallery is on bespoke commission, working closely with customers or their interior designers creating custom coloured fabrics. More recently the company has introduced a complementary range of ornate trimmings, including fringes, gimps and tiebacks, some of which include glamorous Swarovski crystal. The new trimming ranges may also be custom coloured to suit the designer;s specific schemes.
The Gagliardi Gallery opened in 1978 in London and is one of the most established, long-standing contemporary art galleries in the city. Over the last 35 years, the gallery has maintained a strong identity and continues to build trusted relationships with its clients who range from Princes, Sheikhs and businessmen, to those who pay monthly for a painting worth under £500.
The gallery has become synonymous with quality and diversity, exhibiting a comprehensive collection of sculpture and painting characterised by its variety - from traditional Tuscan landscapes, still-life studies and intricate portraits, to the brazenly abstract and surreal.
The mentality of the gallery is unchanged over the years, providing a personal service and offering high quality art at a good price. Visitors and clients are invited into a warm environment to search through numerous artworks by over one hundred artists, some of whom just out of art school, others very established international artists with works present in some of the greatest museums in the world, such as the V & A, the Tate, the Museum of Art in Rio de Janeiro and the National Museum in Wales.
Today, we are one of the oldest contemporary art galleries in London and inextricably entrenched in the buzzing cosmopolitan parade that is the King's Road in Chelsea, one of the most prestigious and dynamic areas of London.

The School of Meditation is exactly what it says. It exists to teach people how to meditate. It also provides additional learning and support to those who already do.
At the school, members can meditate together and discuss their experiences and so help each other establish/strengthen the practice. If they choose, they can also hear and consider the teachings and knowledge behind the meditation which leads to greater understanding and deeper levels of inner discovery.
The SOM is made up of its members and anyone who learns to meditate automatically becomes one - welcome to use the school as much or as little as they please – for always.
There's one paid member of staff who runs the office on a part-time basis. Apart from that, the school is run entirely by volunteer members who give some of their time in order to bring the benefits of the school and meditation to others.

Καλωσήλθατε στην Σελίδα της Εθελοντικής Ομάδας Στήριξης και Ενημέρωσης «Άγιος Φανούριος»! Ο Άγιος Φανούριος είναι κατ᾽ αρχάς μια ιδέα που γεννήθηκε από Έλληνες του Λονδίνου με τελικό σκοπό την συμβουλευτική στήριξη, καθοδήγηση και ενημέρωση των νέων Ελλήνων μεταναστών που φθάνουν στην Μεγάλη Βρετανία προς αναζήτηση μιας καινούριας αρχής, μίας νέας ζωής.
Η ιδέα αυτή είναι γέννημα θρέμμα των δυσμενών συνθηκών της Ελλάδος κατά την οικονομική κρίση και της εξ αυτής αναδυομένης μετανάστευσης, η οποία έχει πάρει διαστάσεις επιδημίας το τρέχον έτος, και αυξάνει ολοένα τον αριθμό των νεοαφιχθέντων Ελλήνων μεταναστών στο Βρετανικό έδαφος.
Παρατηρήθηκε, πως οι άνθρωποι που φθάνουν στην Μεγάλη Βρετανία για αναζήτηση καλύτερης τύχης, πέφτουν πολλές φορές θύματα απάτης ή εκμετάλλευσης, άλλοτε πριν έρθουν, άλλοτε μετά, και μη γνωρίζοντας το σύστημα, τα δικαιώματά τους και τις υποχρεώσεις τους, αποχωρούν απογοητευμένοι, αβοήθητοι και με τσαλακωμένες ελπίδες.
Η Ομάδα του Αγίου Φανουρίου, κατόπιν συνεννοήσεως με τον Σεβασμιώτατο Αρχιεπίσκοπο Θυατείρων και Μεγάλης Βρετανίας, κ.Γρηγόριο, αποφάσισε να λάβει δράση, αναζητώντας τις πιθανές εκείνες λύσεις που θα έβγαζαν τους ανθρώπους αυτούς από αυτήν την δύσκολη θέση, προλαμβάνοντας και ενημερώνοντας σωστά, για όσα είναι απαραίτητα, ώστε να μπορέσει κάποιος να προσαρμοστεί, κατά το δυνατόν ταχύτερα, ασφαλέστερα και ορθότερα στην πολύ μεγάλη Μεγάλη Βρετανία.
Η Ομάδα του Αγίου Φανουρίου, δρα και κινείται απολύτως εθελοντικά, κάτω από την σκέπη και υπό την καθοδήγηση της Ιεράς Αρχιεπισκοπής Θυατείρων και Μεγάλης Βρετανίας, και του Σεβασμιωτάτου Αρχιεπισκόπου κ. Γρηγορίου.
Η Ομάδα του Αγίου Φανουρίου εδράζεται και λειτουργεί στην κρύπτη του Καθεδρικού Ναού της του Θεού Σοφίας, κάθε τελευταία Κυριακή του εκάστοτε μηνός, εκτός απροόπτου, μεταξύ 12.30 και 14.30. Ο Καθεδρικός Ναός της του Θεού Σοφίας, οι Ιερείς και η Επιτροπή αυτού, παραχώρησαν αφιλοκερδώς τον χώρο αυτό στην Ομάδα του Αγίου Φανουρίου, τις συγκεκριμένες ώρες, επιθυμώντας να συμβάλλουν με αυτόν τον τρόπο στην στήριξη των νέων Ελλήνων μεταναστών.
Εντός της Κρύπτης, βρίσκεται γραφείο, με την Ομάδα του Αγίου Φανουρίου, το οποίο εξυπηρετεί κάθε ενδιαφερόμενο, παρέχοντας τις παρακάτω, ενδεικτικά, υπηρεσίες:
Καθοδήγηση σχετικά με τις απαραίτητες υπηρεσίες (National Insurance Number, NHS, Benefits κλπ).
Καθοδήγηση για τη σωστή σύνταξη βιογραφικού, και για την αναζήτηση γραφείων που ασχολούνται με την ανεύρεση εργασίας.
Καθοδήγηση για εξεύρεση καταλύματος, και δωματίων ή διαμερισμάτων προς ενοικίαση.
Διανομή ειδικού εντύπου με τις προαναφερθείσες απαραίτητες υπηρεσίες και αναλυτικές οδηγίες, αλλά και τις Ελληνικές Κοινότητες συνοπτικά.
Με την ελπίδα της θετικής έκβασης των έργων της Ομάδος του Αγίου Φανουρίου, σας ευχαριστούμε ιδιαίτερα που επισκεφθήκατε την σελίδα μας!
