Coming Soon: Part 2 of the ECVRA Committee: Too Many Freaks, Not Enough Circuses

Which Pictures Does Hazel O’Hare Describe as “Innocent”?

Who does the ECVRA Committee Describe as an “Asset”?


The ECVRA Committee: Too Many Freaks, Not Enough Circuses

Gay Wilson [the then Chair of the Earls Court Residents Association Committee] leaned over and spoke quietly into her guest’s ear:  “Have you seen those dirty pictures of young boys that Barry [Phelps] sends out?”

“Yes, they’re disgusting” came back the reply.

“It’s very naughty of  him, and he might end up in trouble with the police one day.  I suppose many people would consider them paedophilic.  xxx has been sending them to me for years, and I suppose xxx sends them to you too?”, she continued.

xxx is a committee member of the ECVRA who had willingly been on Barry Phelps’ email circle for many years for the immoral pictures of young boys, and who, himself, had forwarded them to several people over the course of several years.  He took great delight in receiving and sending out Phelps’ perverted pictures of young boys.

Loudly, she continued, “You know, since I’ve been on my medication [for chemotherapy], its made me more frank with people.  I might just tell Barry that he’s a disgusting pervert!  I might also tell M****** [a lady from Child’s Street] to f*** o***.  After I came out of hospital, she came to visit me one Friday afternoon, and since then, she keeps emailing me to ask if it’s OK to come around.  She keeps emailing, and I have to keep making up excuses.”

After that cold winter’s night on 2 December 2009, Gay Wilson never did confront Barry Phelps over the emails, but would later defend him in public after his resignation from the RBKC council in July 2010.  Barry Phelps did end up being investigated by the police, but unfortunately, following advice from the CPS, for reasons unknown, the matter was not proceeded with. 

In the ensuing scandal that erupted, an email was sent on 5 July 2010 to the then acting Chair of the ECVRA, and copied to all committee members, bar Gay Wilson and xxx.  The email is copied below:

Subject: FILTH
From: ******>
To: **.********
Cc: ****************>, ********,
    *****.*****, *******>,

Dear [Acting Chair]

I have heard on the grapevine that Cllr Barry Phelps has resigned his seat for the Earl’s Court ward.  This was because he was using RBKC’s resources to operate a “[Edit]”.  Further details can be found on

Obviously, this news affects the Earl’s Court Village, but of direct importance to the Residents’ Association is that xxx [ECVRA committee member] was a direct recipient from Barry Phelps of this filth.  For your information, another ECVRA committee member [Gay Wilson] has known about these disgusting Cllr Phelps’ emails for sometime.  The sexualisation of children is disgusting and depraved, and the obtaining of sexual gratification from the images of children, is not conduct that should be tolerated in any up right and right thinking society.  Needless to say, this is information that must be disseminated to all residents, as ECVRA states that “The purpose of the ECVRA shall be to protect the amenities and interests of the Village and of the residents as a whole living within it.”.  To keep quiet or not to criticise such conduct, is to condone this depravity.

On a separate issue, but also relating to filth, was the sending by post of dog excrement by xxx [the same individual who received Barry Phelps’ emails] to one of the residents in the Village, [a woman in Child’s Street].  Again, this information has also been known by another ECVRA committee member[Gay Wilson] for sometime.  Is it ECVRA policy to breach the criminal law by sending dog excrement through the post?  If not, does it condone such behaviour?  If it does not, what does it intend to do about it?  I quote from an email from 25 January 2009 [from xxx]:  “Main event last week was anonymously posting (first class!) to [the lady in Child’s Street], 2 day’s deposits of her wretched dog’s shit which I caught her scooping into the hollyhock beds.  She HAD to be taught a lesson! 🙂  It was beautifully packaged with a letter in a Fortnum & Masons bag + smart jiffy bag!”.

I believe that such a person, xxx, is unfit to be on the Committee, and I hope that that will be the view of other members of the Committee on hearing of these facts.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Best wishes

The Acting Chair of the ECVRA responded on 6 July 2010:

I have got your e mail and will be looking into it.  yours [Acting Chair]

To which the following response was made on 12 July 2010:

Dear [Acting Chair]

Thank you for your reply.  I should be grateful if you could give me an idea of the time-frame for your investigation, and when you will be in a position to be able to provide me with a decision.  It is my view, based also on the groundswell of opinion condemning Phelps and his email list recipients, that it would be a very serious matter if xxx is left on the Committee in good standing after this scandal.  I believe it would seriously undermine the credibility and respectability of the ECVRA in any public role or position it may wish to adopt.  I also believe that it is not purely an internal ECVRA matter, and that there is a public interest.  I hope you will agree that residents of the ECVRA are entitled to be fully informed of any decision, or absence of a decision, made by the Committee, and in reasonable time.

It should also be noted that xxx had sent dog excrement through the postal system, which is a criminal offence, and this fact was also known by a close colleague [Gay Wilson] on the ECVRA Committee.  This is a further reason, why xxx’s position on the Committee is a scandal, untenable and indefensible.

If xxx remains on the Committee, or has the support and backing of the Committee, then I hope you will understand that an Extraordinary General Meeting of the ECVRA should be convened to discuss the matter and xxx’s position on the Committee.  I can assure you from my own experience from speaking with people locally, that there is a lot of shock and disgust with what has transpired with Barry Phelps.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

On 16 July 2010, a terse reply came back from the Acting Chair of ECVRA stating:

This is to inform you that xxx has stepped down from the committee of the ECVRA.
[name of Acting Chair], Acting Chairman.

At a future AGM of the ECVRA, a motion was put forward for residents to vote upon to change the boundary of the residents’ association.  The ECVRA committee did not inform the residents, the voters, of the true reasons for the change in the boundary.  The ECVRA committee hoped that it would contain, once and for all, any legitimate criticism of the disgusting conduct of one of its committee members.  The ECVRA committee hoped that it would “keep a lid” on the disgusting behaviour of one of its committee members, xxx, a scandal going to the heart of the ECVRA committee.

This blog,, would further detail what xxx of the ECVRA committee had done.  It would reveal that xxx had:

1)  Had been a willing recipient who had received and sent out over the course of several years, the filthy Barry Phelps’ emails of young boys;
2)  Sent excrement to a lady in Child’s Street, and also, in a plastic document wallet, to the household of a  peer of the realm in Redfield Lane;
3)  Vandalised a neighbour’s garden by deliberately destroying his tree.

But what would the committee of the ECVRA do about it?

To be continued.

ECVRA Committee Member Vandalises Neighbour’s Garden

On 22 August 2012, the committee of the Earl’s Court Village Residents Association met at 6 pm at the home of its chair.   What was discussed, we at the blog do not know (yet!), but matters that were omitted for sure, would be what many would call the absolute immoral behaviour of some of its committee members:  we have heard of the sending of dog excrement to at least two residents within the ECVRA catchment area (including the household of a peer of the realm), and also, the receipt and distribution of the perverted Barry Phelps emails.

Recently, another tidbit of information has crossed this blog’s path via the ether – vandalism committed by an ECVRA committee member.  The blog has been forwarded an email written by a certain ECVRA committee member, where he confesses to destroying a tree, which he disliked, in his adjoining neighbour’s garden.  His neighbour, had entrusted him to look after his patch, rather improvidently, whilst he was on holiday in Australia.  Being the coward that this ECVRA committee member is, he took the first opportunity to destroy this tree and blamed its demise on a strong wind to his rather unfortunate neighbour.

As the lyrics go for the daytime soap: 

…  Neighbours, should be there for one another That’s when good neighbours become good friends [NOT!!!]

That’s NOT if you’re a neighbour of this certain Earls Court Village Residents Association committee member.

Here’s the ECVRA committee member’s email:

Hi [neighbour of ECVRA committee member]
Yes, we’re back [ECVRA committee member and his partner] – and mercifully to warmer weather –   i.e 7c ! Apparently on Saturday it was several degrees below minus!

    Hi [name of ECVRA committee member]

      Hope you had a great time in South Africa !  Yes, brilliant thanks!   I think you are just about heading back to the UK?  We’re back!  😦 Very impressed with terminal 5. Touched down 5.30pm and in the house at 6.30pm    

     It looks like we might have a few more weeks in Australia vs. intended – there is a plan afoot to return later in Feb instead of the 4th ! I’m green with envy!

[email cut for brevity]       

    All the best,

    [signed by neighbour of ECVRA committee member]    

    We returned to a freezing house, despite the improved outside temperatures, so it was a case of hot water bottles and the central heating kept on full pelt for 36 hours! I have checked your house this morning, which is fine, but very cold.  Would you like me to activate your central heating a few days before your return?    

[email cut for brevity]    

    The next major news  is that having arrived at the patio, before examining the pond, I had to negotiate the “mimosa” bush/tree which has  completely keeled over and is sprawled over the floor of the patio. I can only presume that the strong north-easterly  winds have pushed it over. It’s half out the ground and looks very short-rooted. Basically, it looks to me that this shrub has mutated to a tree and so is simply too top-heavy.    The base of the trunk has split. I’m afraid it looks an irredeemable situation. What to do? Shall I remove?  

[email cut for brevity] 

    That apart, [neighbour’s name], all’s well,  although I’m so sorry to have to tell you about the fishes and tree.
    All best wishes & love to [neighbour’s wife]

The ECVRA committee member then wrote to a third party about the situation:

Hope it sounds convincing re. the tree!

and later, again, to the same third party:

Hi [Third Party]
Mimosa all done & dusted and now reduced to firewood!

Hope you’re well.

For a committee member of ECVRA to engage in such an anti-social and outrageously immoral act is beyond belief!  For that individual to remain a bona fide member of the ECVRA committee is astounding, but this is sadly all too indicative of ECVRA’s tolerance and acceptance of such reprehensible behaviour so long as it’s committed by one its own. 

As we have read previously, ECVRA is more likely to tolerate one of its members committing scandalous or immoral acts, whether it is sending excrement through the postal system, receiving and sending abusive pictures of young boys, or taking an axe to a neighbour’s tree, rather then taking an axe to the root of its condoning anti-social and immoral behaviour.

Barry Phelps, Boy Pics and ECVRA

The blog has received several emails from different individuals saying that they can’t access the PDFs (on this blog) of the perverted emails that Barry Phelps sent out from his RBKC email address to a select email ring, and received by, amongst others, two committee members of the Earls Court Village Residents Association (ECVRA), and ex-councillor Mark Daley.  For these individuals and others who might be having the same problem, below is a small montage showing Phelps surrounded by several of the pictures of boys he emailed out.

As many readers of the local news in Kensington and Chelsea and of this blog will be aware, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the Earls Court Village Residents Association has had a problem with councillors and individuals who have had an unsavoury interest in pictures of young children, to the extent that one councillor, Andrew Lamont was convicted for his penchant.  Obviously, RBKC does not consider any of these disgusting activities a problem, as it still invites to tax payer funded functions at the town hall, the publicly discredited pervert, Barry Phelps.

For residents within the catchment area of the Earls Court Village Residents Association, they can show their disgust by withholding or not paying any subscriptions to ECVRA until that discredited organisation takes a public stance against this filth, and the criminal actions of some of its committee members.  At the very least, residents can pass on this information for others to make an informed judgment.

The following pictures (not as a montage) were emailed out by Barry Phelps to a select group, including ex councillor Mark Daley, and received by certain committee members of the Earls Court Village Residents Association:

ECVRA’s New Chair – A Bully?

The blog was forwarded an email written by the now current chair of the “Earls Court Village Residents’ Association” (ECVRA), Hazel O’Hare (details here:, concerning what a woman [ddd] had lawfully placed on her property, following a complaint by [ddd’s] neighbour [ccc].  The blog is disgusted that ECVRA should consider that it has jurisdiction and a remit to determine what individuals can lawfully do with their property.  Hazel O’Hare’s email is reproduced below:


—–Original Message—–
From: Hazel O’Hare
Sent: 26 October 2009 11:54
Subject: RE:

I spoke to [ccc] last Friday, and we agreed we would see what [ddd] does. It sounds like she is finally going to do something, so let’s wait until [ccc] is back and see whether the problem is solved. If nothing happens, one thought is to have everyone in the street sign a letter, just to show how everyone feels about this, but [ddd] must know already that public opinion is against her, so I doubt this would help much.


What is most disturbing about Hazel O’Hare’s email is that it comes across as typical nasty playground bullying – suggesting that a group of individuals gang up to coerce the behaviour of a single individual peacefully enjoying their property.

We at the blog note that the ECVRA, which is deeply mired by its connections with the Barry Phelps’ email scandal (see here: and here:  and the outrageous anti-social actions of some of its committee members, is less concerned with cleaning up its own act and instead contemplated engaging in petty bullying of a resident in its catchment area on a matter over which it had no jurisdiction at all.

While the blog is not personally acquainted with the new chair of the ECVRA, we can only consider that as an old spinster, Ms O’Hare has a lot of time on her hands to meddle in other people’s business.  Is this the reason she was referred to as “phalanges” [nb:  usually spelt as flanges, and see here for definition:] by two ECVRA committee members?
