Alice Norton Great North Run in support of Royal Trinity Hospice

21st August 2017

Alice Norton (daughter of our Senior Clerk Dean Norton) is kindly competing in the Great North Run (Newcastle) on Sunday 10 September 2017 in support of Royal Trinity Hospice.

Temple Garden Chambers is extremely grateful to Alice for taking on the challenge and hopes that we can exceed the £2000 target for donations.

Royal Trinity Hospice has a catchment area of some 750,000 people across 7 London Boroughs. It provides excellent palliative care, including medical, emotional and practical support to any adult suffering from a terminal illness. Its services help some 1,500 people every year and are completely free of charge, whether provided in the Hospice or in the patient’s home. With specialist nurses and doctors and a range of complimentary therapies, it does the most tremendous work to support its patients and their families, including reaching minority groups and those who historically have had poor access to palliative care services.

Please see link to our Virgin Money Giving page where Temple Garden Chambers, Alice and Royal Trinity would be very appreciative of any donations kindly made.

Coronavirus Update

TGC continues proactively to safeguard against the risks posed by the spread of Coronavirus. We have a Covid-19 Committee who continue to monitor the situation and follow advice issued by the Government and Public Health England. We will be updating this page as and when new information becomes available. As of 6 July 2020, our London premises, 1 Harcourt Buildings, will be operating with a reduced clerking team in attendance. The remaining staff members and barristers will continue working remotely. We wish to reassure everyone that our contingency plans enable us to continue to provide our services.

Telephoning us

When calling our switchboard number, it will be diverted to a member of the clerking team who will be able to assist in the usual way. All direct dials in Chambers are diverted to be answered remotely.

Emailing us & Sending Instructions

Please send all instructions via email directly to clerks@tgchambers.com. We would be grateful if this could be sent in an orderly fashion to enable working from a screen manageable. We are able to receive hard copy instructions via DX or Post, if necessary. However, we have a preference for electronic documents wherever possible.

Please continue to communicate with barristers directly via phone or email.

Conferences, Joint Settlement Meetings & Mediations

Conferences, meetings and mediations will take place remotely, either by telephone or video until further notice. Group Telephone calls and video calls can be easily arranged. If an in-person meeting is felt necessary please see our Covid-19 Information page for full criteria.

Court Hearings

We are following the Government’s advice closely, which is changing daily. In keeping with that advice, we will continue to service hearings remotely, where possible and as instructed by the hosting Court. In-Person hearings will be accommodated by members of TGC. We will continue to monitor this situation.

Making a payment

If you do not already pay us by BACS, going forward please make arrangements to do so. Please contact the clerks who can supply you with the relevant BACS details.
