Herne Hill to twin with....Herne Hill

Given that the twitter feed on the front page just searches for all occurrences of "Herne Hill" it has come to light that there is another Herne Hill,

No! not possible I hear you all cry.

Sorry, but it's true, we are not alone.

It's in Australia, in a suburb of Perth, just up the road from High Wycombe in fact.

So, let's start the campaign to twin with Herne Hill.

I may live on Railton Road now, but I spent my first 18 years in a town now far from Perth, Australia. Though I must admit I hadn't heard of Herne Hill in WA -- it seems to be on the borders of Perth.

Naturally this campaign has tickled me pink, so if there's anything I can do to help out I'd be much obliged :)

I think an all expenses paid research trip out there would be essential. Good for bonding between communities. I'll bring the sun hat and sun cream.

However, if for some reason that isn't possible right now then maybe we can get in touch with someone within the Perth Local Authority and sound them out?

Oh look.   They don't have speed humps... may be we could learn from them.

Stop press....

Another Herne Hill in Geelong, Victoria, Oz. (South west of Melbourne). Seems to be lack of speed humps there too, shall we donate some?

Re: Herne Hill to twin with....Herne Hill

I too get these emails and had to change the search string to "herne hill -Australia", that helped stop the auzzie Herne Hill news getting passed on.

Hope that helps...
