For all of those (me included) who have paid for classes in advance, please note that this studio is closing on 11 July. From what I understand, the owner, James Muthana, is ignoring requests for refunds and reimbursement. More worryingly, I was told today that they are still advertising blocks of class passes online. I have not been able to check if that is true, but please please do not pass any money over to this company.

Not so long ago St Dunstan's Gardens was threatened by a developer wanting to build 52 care home units and 28 parking bays on it. Also in recent times Mount Anvil, the developer at Friary Park, wanted to annex Friars Place Green, by building amenities for its new tenants there including a cycling hub.Just because these threats have seemingly gone away, residents still need to be vigilant, but despite a survey demanding protection for these greens being passed around in What's App groups only 214 people have so far responded in comparison to the 800 who indignantly signed when St Dunstan's Gardens had a planning application on it.Undoubtedly it is tricky to communicate the need for this to every resident and a leaflet drop through doors WILL be happening, but if anybody reading this can help, please do so...Now is the time to seek long-term protection for our three beautiful greens - St Dunstan's Gardens, Friars Gardens and Friars Place Green, the latter of which - by virtue of the spur road being 'stopped up' is still at risk of being merged into Friary Park.YOU CAN DO SOMETHING!!! NOW!!! IT TAKES LESS THAN TWO MINUTESSupport a campaign to designate these greens as Local Green Space in Ealing's Local Plan. This will afford our little parks extra protection, so that the council could perhaps refuse to validate any application asking to build on them, thus not even getting to the fluro-yellow sign on the lamp-post. Thus causing residents less stress. We should be secure in the enjoyment of our open spaces.Your testimonial, stating why these greens are special, will make a difference. Short statements are needed from as many residents of Central Acton as we can muster. Be a community champion. Even if you don't actually visit them regularly, you must have walked or driven past at some point and are able to comment on why they are special/ needed. Please use this link https://bit.ly/3pjscDF

Hi neighbours, are you interested in gaining long-term security for our greens? I'm launching a campaign to demand Ealing Council designates Friars Place Green, Friars Gardens and St Dunstan's Gardens as Local Green Space in their 15-year local plan. If obtained, this designation would protect our greens from future development. I've been advised by Open Spaces Society to collect testimonials from residents in W3 in support of this. Could you please help by answering two questions on this digital survey? It only takes two minutes!If you paste this link into your browser, you should get to the survey.https://forms.gle/zRahkM61C6DdyaiBAThanks and best wishes,Juliet

Hi FolksWe need your support if you can - need sensible objections and/or harassment/ skirmishing action of the planning dept for a local planning application to Twyford Court.The matter is urgent - we're in contact with the Planning Officer - she is writing her Officer's Report as we speak and it looks like the proposal will be approved. This is really hard for us to understand, and to accept. So there are only days left - we are fighting to the finish line, marshalling our support and so we turn to you. We need Volume.Twyford Court (W3 9QE) on Twyford Avenue is close to Ealing Common and within the Creffield Conservation Area (CCA). It's a really lovely 1930's long two-storey building which manages to complement & totally fit in with the surrounding Edwardian & late Victorian streetscape. It has long & sleek flowing lines - it makes you smile when you look at it - you could say the designer of this building was talented. Twyford Court is singled out for significant praise in CCA Appraisal of 2007 (see below at the end of this post).It houses 16 decent sized 2-bedroom flats, with a variety of long-term residents - from young families to hard working professionals to older people - one of the residents has just this week given birth to a new baby, many people work from home, some are retired, etc. It has small but very pleasant gardens at front & back which are used extensively by the residents especially in the summer months.The proposal (230905FUL) is to add a third floor above the building to provide 5 one-bed & studio flats.https://pam.ealing.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=RR3VHPJMKHU00&activeTab=summaryIt will raise the height of the existing walls and provide a flat-top roof with balconies & dormers at the front. This will destroy the look of the building and turn it from sleek & harmonious & well-designed into stumpy, out of character & ugly. The word "naff" comes to mind - there are many more clinical descriptions of this heresy in the objections. This is harmful to an Ealing heritage asset.The proposal will significantly overlook the patios & gardens to the rear destroying the existing residents' privacy and will look directly across into the large classroom windows of the Japanese School London. At the front the balconies (where there are currently none within the CCA) will overlook the street and the children passing by every day, as well as into the windows across the street many of which are private bedrooms.There will be living rooms & kitchens above bedrooms below.They are proposing putting bike sheds for 39 bicycles in the rear garden turning a pleasant & much loved garden into a parking lot.There's much more ...If the proposal is approved by planning, once the works start it will be absolute hell for the existing residents. Building works with demolition then tons of banging & hammering, noise & dust & all that goes with such works - will be going on directly above their heads - within inches. Ealing Planning will simply say "this is not a material planning consideration" - but then who at the council will give consideration to the existing residents, to existing residents of London Borough of Ealing? The answer is Nobody - in this way Planning just wash their hands of it, like Pontius Pilate.But what about the baby, the people working from home, the older residents? "Not a material planning consideration" This is a disgrace.You will see there are many objections on the council webpage for this proposal and not a single 'neutral' or 'supports'. Many really good objections covering all the bases. Now what we need is VOLUME. A Tidal Wave!I have nothing against "modern" I'm all for sensible development when it is needed but this is too much - and all for 5 poky 1-bed & studio flats?It makes no sense. But planning will approve it anyway.Unless we raise a stink. People Power - spread the word - get your objections in - call the planning officer.No ranting please - outraged is ok - sensible objections - firm & to the point.And I look forward to inviting you all to the celebration if & when the application is quashed - due to the tidal wave of people-power and their actions.You know that song "I fought the Law and the - Law Won" -- by the Clash?Well if we win we will sing: "We fought the Council and - We Won"Thanks for listening.Now Go Get 'Em. (Please)Steven-----Creffield Conservation Area (CCA) Appraisal -- March 2007 Not a massive document but depsite having a great deal to cover, it still manages to find space to single out Twyford Court with the following comments:-- Twyford Court is a handsome lowrise 1930s set of flats in a toned down Art Deco style. While the designer did not take architectural cues from the surrounding buildings, the quality of the design and respect showed for the surroundings means that it does enhance the area.-- Due to its later vintage and individual style, this building stands out from the rows of Edwardian houses in Creffield. However, it also stands as an example of how such differences in appearance do not necessarily result in a jarring visual effect or a loss of character in the area. This building’s low-rise design and soft tones add to the rich suburban mix.

Do any forumists know of any publications that show old photographs of essex place and/or mills row in acton?My family research suggests that my ancestors were living in the area from the mid 1860's possibly earlier.I am also looking for possible cemeteries that they may have been interred but I am having no luck through the council contact for cemeteries.Thanks.William Hearne.

The recent decision by the Mayor to prempt legislation requiring tall buildings to have more than one staircase has been welcomed by Friary Park campaigners. We applaud Steve Donnelly (Lab) for speaking so articulately against the application to add another tall tower, and Julian Gallant (Con) for being the lone voice on the Planning Committee to vote against. Here is a piece in the Ealing Times just published.https://ealing.news/

I'm sure we'll all be cock a hoop when we learn about the far reaching decisions made on our behalf and without public consultation. PLENTY of non-public "consultation" though, if you read on..... Building London's sustainable and inclusive future.London boroughs are set to unveil a list of key infrastructure projects needed to secure "a more prosperous, inclusive, and sustainable" future for the capital.The London Infrastructure Framework will be officially unveiled at UKREiiF 2023 – the UK's real estate investment and infrastructure forum - in Leeds later today.The framework, which has been developed with the boroughs by the economic consultancy Metro Dynamics and through close working with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, will promote more efficient planning and delivery of infrastructure and enable a more united pan-London voice to support projects in accessing funding.London Councils' Executive Member for London's Future: Business, Economy and Culture, Cllr Elizabeth Campbell, said: "By setting out boroughs' agreed priorities and the exciting range of development opportunities across the capital, the London infrastructure framework will drive investment towards where it will make the most difference."But alongside this new framework, we are also calling for a new devolution deal for the capital to support boroughs' ambitions around growth and infrastructure. Letting boroughs keep more proceeds from locally driven growth would help us secure investment for these strategic projects and bring benefits not only to Londoners but the UK economy as a whole. "Boroughs are more determined than ever to work with each other and with our partners in City Hall and central government, as well as with private investors. Together we can secure the infrastructure London needs to thrive in the coming years and maximise its contribution to the UK's economic well-being."

Further revelations about abuse at this cycling club have come out in the press. It is perhaps best not to dwell on that aspect but I had always associated it with Westbourne Grove and hadn't been aware that it was based in Acton at the time Bradley Wiggins was a member. Does anyone know where it was located?

I wondered if anyone was interested in forming an informal club based at Act One. The idea would be that we agree a screening, buy our own tickets, then retire to the café or lounge after for a chat about the film and/or film in general.I used to belong to such a club at Waterman's and it worked very well, but never really got going again after the lockdowns. Now, I hardly ever go there and Act One is my cinema of choice.Obviously we'd need a few people to form the core of the group.Just thought I'd ask ...

Great news right?Alternatively, be very afraid…..This could mean twice as many trains using the Churchfield Rd level crossing.Already the barriers are down circa 50% of the time.So this could mean either CR being made a no through road (including for pedestrians)orA big bridge over the top.

Its been a while, reluctantly I post this as it opens up to ignorant comments, but it is worth noting that there are now a couple of detailed studies into the impact of LTNs across London. They all seem to all conclude similarly that ltns have a positive impact on traffic (lower) figures and air quality (less nox). The most detailed one I found was the one in science direct. Findings: LTNs reduced NO2 both within intervention areas (5.7%) and in boundary areas (8.9%)Traffic volumes were reduced by 58.2% within LTNs and by 13.4% at LTN boundary sites.Source:https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1361920922003625It’s a shame that this initiative was ‘shouted down’ in Ealing and Acton. Imagine 13.4% less traffic on horn lane and churchfield road. Any factually based thoughts?Cheers,Ossian

In March 2023, The commissioner of the Met Police Sir Mark Rowley admitted the force has 'racists, misogynists and homophobes' in its ranks – as Home Secretary Suella Braverman blasted 'serious failings of culture, leadership and standards' at Scotland Yard. On 6th April I sent a lengthy email to Mark Rowley pleading with him to review The Hammersmith Nudes' murders of the 1960's. I told him that I am in contact with adult children and other members of 6 of the murder victims. I told him that many of the victims' family members are convinced that if the victims were police women, doctors, nurses or solicitors there would have been a review. On April 11 I recieved the following."Dear Mr Milkins,My apologies for the delayed response. I have forwarded this matter to the appropriate team for their review and direct reply to you.Kind regards,***** ******** ********* | Inspector | Staff Officer to the Commissioner."Today I received a a phone call from New Scotland Yard followed by the following email.Dear Mr Milkins "It was good to speak to you on the phone just now, and as promised, I am emailing to confirm my details. I recognise the huge amount of dedication you have put into your investigations and I am sorry that these terrible murders remain unsolved, despite your efforts.There have been various reviews conducted regarding these cases over the years and I know you were in contact with DC Paul Rogers in 2007, and most recently, DC Adam Bailey in 2020. It remains the case as per DC Bailey’s letter that the links between Harold Jones and the victims are not substantive enough to enable a definitive finding that he was responsible for their deaths. I hope you understand that because Jones died in 1971 and there is no additional material further to what has been looked at in the above reviews, we won’t be reviewing the cases again at this time.Having said that, I know you are determined to continue with your work, and if there is something substantive and probative that you find that you would like to bring to our attention in the future, please do so.I wish you all the best."DC ***** ****** | CSC - Major InquiriesSpecial Casework TeamTHE MUST GO ON. AND IT WILL.

https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/buses/bus-changes#on-this-page-0207 seems to be less frequent. Loss of 427 will make buses even more crowded.

The 207 and 607 busses from Ealing to Acton High Street stopped and offloaded passengers before Acton roundabout. Part of the road was closed off with bollards.The 607 and 207 went down Horn Lane instead of Acton High Street.Passengers waiting outside Morrrisons had no idea the busses were rerouted. Many were worried about how they would reach home.Today the situation is the same as the 607 and 207 are still using Horn Lane. No busses are stopping at Rosemont Road Bus Stop in Horn Lane.No-one seems to know why this is happening. Any ideas?There should be signs warning passengers!

The wonderful Talking Pictures TV channel has a regular series of 10-minute documentary films made in the early 1960s, called Look at Life. A recent 1961 programme (aired on Frday 24th Feb) about Britain's mayors featured some interesting footage of Acton High Street taken from the town hall.

Our black bins on Acton Lane between Avenue road and Bollo Bridge road were not collected 2 weeks ago and have not been collected again today, this means they have not been collected for four weeks and counting! Needless to say most of them are overflowing and a health hazard. Is anyone else in the same situation? I have reported a missed colletion, made a complaint and even spoken to someone at the council who told me to make a complaint online, to no avail. I will be writing to our MP and local councillors if nothing is collected tomorrow. Please make sure you do the same if you are in the same situation.

All planning applications for residential buildings above 30 metres must now include a second staircase under a move by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.The Utterly Useless & Incompetent Twerp is rather late for North Acton and environs.Maybe he'll actually DO something about knife crime in another decade?https://www.planningportal.co.uk/services/weekly-planning-news/planning-news-16-february-2023#khan-orders-second-staircases-for-tall-residential-applications

It says there was a public vote for this particular piece. Maybe I have been asleep for months...anyone else didn't get to vote?Light pollution in hideous colours once again puts a blot on the landscape of Acton.I hope you all love it.

I'm now at my desk, but earlier whilst outside I was aware of a completely different-to-me bird sound in the trees. It must be spring, but what are the birds that have suddenly arrived/woken up to spring? I think I can see 4 or 5 larks of one kind or another for a start. anyone else got a Monday morning feathered friend sighting?

Did you know that there was a massive Art Deco Odeon where Morrison's now stands? https://linktr.ee/nigelsmithwalksNigel does a walk of our cinema history a couple of times a month, which includes a look inside what is now the Climbing Wall, which preserves much of the Art Deco cinema it used to be.

So if anyone out there was wondering what to give up for Lent, the salad shortage solves that problem! Wasn't the historical reason for having Lent to make the meagre food stocks last until the fields starting producing food again?
