After one week’s break, we’re back with Week 11 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 last couple of weeks:
Elaine Hill 10:52pm Apr 23Hi everyone, the annual Beating the Bounds walk around the old parish boundary of Hanwell will take place on Bank Holiday Monday, 5 May, to raise funds for Hanwell Carnival.It’s a circular walk of approx 8 miles, starting and ending at the Fox pub in Green Lane. If you’d like to find out more about Hanwell’s history and enjoy a good walk, the main walking group will be leaving the Fox at around 12.30 and the full walk takes around 3 hours. Wear suitable walking shoes as some of the route may be muddy and bring water and snacks as there are no scheduled refreshment stops on the way.If you have small children, you may wish to do the southern half of the walk which takes in most of the boundary stones and head back to Hanwell town from the top of Grosvenor Road where it rejoins Uxbridge Road.
Pick up a walking guide with maps and historical information at the registration point at the Fox from midday on 5th May in return for a donation to Carnival funds. For more info about the walk and its origins see the “get involved” page at www.hanwellcarnival.co.uk or PM me. Many thanks.
Eve Kelly 7:31pm Apr 19I got to say I do love north Hanwell, the people are truly lovely and I’m so glad I live here…I just wish we had something like a W7 Emporium up at the Greenford avenue/Shakespeare Rd row of shops. Any budding cafe/bar peeps looking for a new venue? :o)
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!
- Fight to keep essential local services – your A&E post office, police station, school, etc.
- Become a school governor
- Gather a group to clean up a local park or cemetery
- When somebody says “government stinks,” suggest they help fix it
- Turn off the TV, put down your phone or tablet, and talk
- Hold a neighbourhood barbecue (if wet in the hall)
- Bake biscuits for new neighbours or work colleagues
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!
