Along with all the other great things happening in West Ealing on Saturday morning, we’re holding a West Ealing Neighours coffee morning.

The WEN committee will be there and we’d love to have a chat and you’re very welcome to pick our brains and give us your thoughts on any local issues – parking, shopping, building plans or anything else.

The Ealing Today website has got a great story about The London Studio, a greetings card company from West Ealing founded by local resident Soula Zavacopoulos, being named as one of the UK’s top 100 businesses in the Smarta Awards. The winner will win £10,000 and it’s all down to the number of votes she gets. You can read the full story here and you can visit The London Studio’s site to vote.
I missed this last year so made sure I got my ticket early. Worth the £6 just to see Du Bellows in my view. About 20 tickets left. Other bands include The Geoff Garbow Blues Band and Romeo Down. See here for details
