A warm summer’s evening, chilled prosecco, mouthwatering canapes served by Adam and his staff at &feast and fresh flowers from Sun Inn Flowers made for a special evening shared by the development team at Marston Properties and many neighbours of their new project, Foundry Mews.  

Guests included Steven Mindel, Chairman Barnes Community Association and Mrs Mary Algar, Foundry Mews’ nearest neighbour for 50 years, who turned 90 this special Queen’s birthday year and continues to teach textile design and printing at Putney School of Art & Design.

Letting agents James Anderson and Houston Lawrence were on hand to take guests around the development, generating quick interest in the duplex apartments and open plan studio offices.


Ms Algar was invited to open Foundry Mews formally, explaining firsthand how delightful a place Barnes is to live with so much to do. She was helped by local youngster Holly.
