@WENeighbours Loving the community act tip of the week! Car clubs are indeed a great way to do our bit towards saving the environment.

I am collecting Actimel yoghurt pots and shape yoghurt pots to be recycled to raise money to repair the Organ At St Thomas church (next to Elthorne park) Pots can be dropped off in Church Porch which is open 8am till 6pm most days.I am also collecting Coffee jar lids, Tassimo Pods, non Savoury Biscuit wrappers (any sort) and Baby wipe packets ( any Sort). I am particularly needing baby wipe packets. if there is a nursery or baby minder who can collect but not deliver them to the church please email me and i will arrange collection
please help me and rid the landfill of these items
My act of community this week – Cakes baked ready for the PTA cake sale tomorrow at Christ the Saviour C of E Primary school. Must try one myself now!
994 members now – we just need 6 to make the 1000 – should we have a prize for the 1000th? If so, what would be a good gift (preferably free or nearly) for a West Ealing Neighbour?

Did we miss anything? Let us know!
We have another great list of seven ‘acts of community’ for this week – see how many you do – maybe you already do them!
- Join Streetbank to start sharing tools and important items with your neighbours
- Start having lunch times (and chats!) with your co-workers
- Join Ealing Freecycle to declutter and save money
- Offer a neighbour a lift to work
- Employers: give employees time (e.g., 3 days per year to work on community projects)
- Plan a “Walking Tour” of a local historic area
- Eat breakfast or brunch at a local gathering spot on Saturdays
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!
