Without Portfolio

Gill Adams
Gill has lived in Ealing borough since 1979 and in West Ealing since 2005. She started a community group mediated by email in Acton, way back in the days of dial-up connection and became fascinated by the way technology can promote and support local communities. West Ealing Neighbours sprung from that early experience and has given birth to no less than eight digital ways for the 35,000 strong community of West Ealing to interract. She believes, with the nation’s huge cohort of baby boomers either retired or about to retire, or maybe working in new, home-based ways, there is about to be a revolution in terms of how people re-centre their lives on their home locations. Digital connections can help enormously.
