Today is the start of Week 6 of our 150 days of community project. Don’t know what we’re talking about? Then click here. Here are some of the things that we’ve been up to in West Ealing in the past week:
We at Christ the Saviour C of E Primary School had our sponsored bunny hop this week! All the infants wore their bunny ears and hopped away, then the PTA provided the children with a well earned biscuit and drink! It was lovely seeing the older year 5 children from the juniors site helping the really little ones.
Think I should also mention Neo hairdressers again, they always manage to find me last minute appointments and free fringe trims for regular customers. They’re also offering a discount, 25% for new customers if you mention this facebook group.
I love Beauty by Jas. The shop is near the british heart foundation and downstairs it is clothes which jas’ s husband looks after and then upstairs is where you can get threading, waxing, massages by Jas and her girls. They are lovely, I recommend.
For me it has to be Bunty’s wool shop buried in the back of Daniels. It has been there over 40yrs and stocks a great range of yarn including Sublime and Debbie Bliss alongside workhorses like Patons, Wendy etc. A lovely selection of buttons and also general haberdashery such as bias binding etc. Mr Hafiz, the owner is knowledgable, friendly and ever so slightly encouraging… I have a hard time leaving with just the stuff I went in for.
Definitely the fruit and veg shop on st John’s parade – such friendly service from a lovely family. Although also a vote for buntys and an honourable mention for the forester pub which has just gone from strength to strength in the last year or so.
Just put my availability down for Ealing Foodbank. It looks like the warehouse in Hanwell is potentially going to be opening longer hours so for those of you who can only help after work this would be an ideal opportunity to get involved.
We have another great list of seven ‘acts of community’ for this week – see how many you do – maybe you already do them!
- Walk or bike to support a cause and meet others
- Employers: encourage volunteer/community groups to hold meetings on your site
- Volunteer in your child’s classroom or chaperone a field trip
- Join or start a babysitting circle
- Attend school plays
- Answer surveys when asked
- Businesses: invite local government officials to speak at your workplace
We’d love to hear from you if you do any of these things, or anything else that makes people smile in West Ealing. We have loads more suggestions of things you can do, if you want to jump ahead!
