I was wondering what people thought of the notion of making Berrymead Gardens two way for cyclists? I sometimes use it to get to the High Street and it would be really convenient to be able to go back in the same direction. As far as I can see nothing would be needed but a few signs and a bit of paint on the road but I don't know much about these things.Would be interested to hear thoughts for and against in order to decide if I should look into raising the matter more formally.

Does anybody know what time the cafe/bar in Putt in the Park currently closes? I've tried to confirm with them directly without success. I was walking past in the evening last week and it was still open well after the 6pm closure time given on their web site. It would be a handy place to meet a friend of mine and I wanted to check it would be still open up to say 8pm.

I hope nobody minds if I kick this off -- who knows, we might even get back to seeing films in the cinema by the end of the year! Here's to good films and good health..I'm tired of living in interesting times.

While I'm pleased that the sports hub at Gunnersbury Park is finally going to open has anyone considered the impact on access to the car park. If there are ten pitches, a large gym and a number of other outdoor facilities then there is going to be a large increase in the number of people turning up particularly at the weekend.The access to the park is essentially one way and generally good will between drivers avoids it getting blocked but if there is a stand off the road could get blocked. The plan is to start charging for the car park and people exiting will be anxious to get out in time to avoid a hefty fine. People entering the car park might not understand this and therefore there is scope for conflict. As far as I can tell this looks set to get very messy.

I have spoken about this in the past and was derided I recall? Possibly something about the usual unfounded and idiot "Racist!" accusations?Anyways, Ho Hum, This is from one of the Investment Forums I frequent:-X said:- (sic) Yes I also understand that in some cultures groups within the UK will decide who they are voting for and they all get a postal vote and the elders will fill all the papers in.Y said:-What does this even mean?Z said:- (sic)The Electoral Commission identified 17 local authority areas at particular risk of electoral fraud as far back as 2014 and widespread abuse of postal voting was seen as a significant factor. Democratic Audit have also written reports on the subject.Doesn't happen in Southall/Ealing/Acton of course. 🤣SOURCE: https://p2pindependentforum.com/

So, it seems the demolition and building of More Towers has started?Local residents should start to prepare for a total blight on their quality of life for the next few years I'd have thought?Thanks BellEnd.

Arguments in favour of the low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) introduced in parts of Acton include a reduction in air pollution resulting from less car use. Campaigners opposed to the LTNs counter that longer journeys caused by LTNs will result in increased air pollution.So, in fact, both sides at least AGREE that air pollution is bad and that we should minimise it. And that’s scarcely surprising when we know that in London, air pollution contributes to in excess of 9,400 premature deaths every year, and costs the health system annually between £1.4 billion and £3.7 billion.The main source of this pollution is road vehicles – but it’s not just their exhaust gases. The latest research carried out for the government indicates that dust from brake wear, tyre wear and road surface wear currently constitute over 60% (by mass) of particulate emissions (PM2.5 and PM10) from road transport. These fragments pollute the air and will eventually be washed into rivers and the sea. Electric vehicles do not solve this dust problem and can even make it worse, as they tend to be heavier due to their batteries. Currently no legislation is in place to limit or reduce these particles.So what can be done? Well, apart from walking or cycling instead of driving whenever you can, there’s one very simple thing you can do: Buy the LIGHTEST, smallest car that is sufficient for you. Doing so reduces every type of emission. By contrast, an SUV weighs on average 40% more than a normal car, due to its size and 4-wheel transmission.But there’s worse! Apart from the increased dust due to the extra weight, the International Energy Agency has found that SUVs are the SECOND LARGEST CAUSE of the global rise in carbon dioxide emissions over the past decade, eclipsing all shipping, aviation, heavy industry and even trucks. Each year, SUVs emit 700 mega-tonnes of CO2, about the entire output of the UK and Netherlands combined. On top of all this, studies of accident statistics in the USA found that a far higher percentage of pedestrians hit by SUVs died compared with those hit by a normal car. Having to share the road with 2-ton monsters puts people off buying a small car or cycling – the very things we need to encourage to tackle both air pollution and climate change.Already the European Transport Safety Council and the UK Citizens’ Assembly on Climate Change (set up by the House of Commons) have discussed a ban on SUVs in cities. Sooner or later governments will have to legislate, but meanwhile we in Acton can do our bit. If you have an over-sized vehicle, simply commit to never buying another, and tell your friends why. And if you don’t have one, then keep it that way.The UK will host the UN Climate Summit COP26 in Glasgow this November; it will be the largest summit the UK has ever hosted, bringing together representatives from nearly 200 countries to discuss how to avoid catastrophic climate change. So, whatever we think of LTNs and whatever car we currently own, there is no better time for us to unite in a commitment to the planet for the sake of our children.SEE:====1) “How to Save Our Planet”, WWF International [8:27].

Anne Marie has written an account if the latest application on the front page. All you cinema buffs, if you could very kindly like and endorse the page we might get a share of the Mayor's regeneration fund for Acton. Wouldn't that be good? They will count the supporters though so please.....

Quite refreshing to observe.Unfortunately, an MP has zero influence on their local Council/s.She seems to give it a decent try though, so that's a massive "E" for Effort! 👍

As my first film isn't released till Friday, it's officially a 2020 film. 2020? When did that happen? Surely it was only yesterday that Tony Blair was grabbing the queen's hand at the Dome and getting a Death Stare in return.Anyway ... if you're the first to review a film then reply to the first posting. If someone else has reviewed it before you, then reply to their post in the hope of keeping them together.

You may have seen volunteers out litter picking in Acton's streets. This is to help support Ealing's own efforts with the aim of providing us with the kinds of clean streets we'd all like to live in.A regular weekly group meets each Saturday morning at 9am at the Mill Hill Surgery (111 Avenue Road W3) for some socially distanced litter-picking! Please meet us there if you'd like to join in!If you live elsewhere in Acton or Ealing, you can consult the Facebook page below for how to become involved. It's a great way to build community with your neighbours and developed ownership over where we live.https://www.facebook.com/groups/LAGERCan
