Dropped a pile of cards and a £10 in a cab on Thursday night- bank, credit, library, gift voucher, Tastecard etc. All have just been returned to me by the taxi driver who managed to track me down via LinkedIn! Technology is both spooky and splendid! – feeling lucky.

I live near Blondin and am campaigning for London to become the world’s first National Park City, a new kind of national park.The campaign is building momentum and, if you like the idea, I would love to have your support. Please take a moment to sign our petition here:http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/let-s-make-london-the-world-s-first-national-park-city-glnpThis article on the Guardian website provides an overview of the idea.http://www.theguardian.com/local-government-network/2014/may/27/greater-london-national-park-city

Please do let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

‘Shops you may never have tried in West Ealing’ – has anyone got any ‘secret’ shopping tips for users or potential users of what the Broadway has to offer? I need encouragement to move beyond Sainsbury’s…and I don’t just mean Lidl! Has anyone tried any of the many fresh fish shops for example and, if so, what do you recommend?


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!

  • Cut back on screen-time
  • Help carry something heavy
  • Plan a reunion of family, friends, or those with whom you had a special connection
  • Find out what’s going on at your local library
  • Read the local news faithfully
  • Buy a BBQ and invite others over for a meal
  • Fix it even if you didn’t break it
  • Pick it up even if you didn’t drop it

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!
