A friend of mine is looking for a job. She is an asylum seeker and her application is currently pending with Home Office. She has received right to work card however she is finding it difficult to get a job as that card does not help much in terms of eligibility. The supermarkets are asking for sharecode but this is not available in her case.Her current work permit validity is until 2024.Any help or pointers to get help will be very much appreciated.Thanks in advance.

Can anyone please tell me of any events in the Acton area to celebrate the Queens Jubilee. It could be anything official or just a simple street party. I've been told something has been planed in Acton Park but I have no details of what day it will be held.

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/

I have recently reported this company to Financial Ombudsman as I have been waiting since 22nd February for a simple claim (less than £600) to be assessed. Its the first claim I have made. Ihave been with them 4 years and never made a claim. They are absolutely awful and I thought they were a scam. I made a BIG mistake joining them as they are unprofessional, have no customer service, do not want to settle any claims - I am waiting 8 weeks!!!! BEWARE of them, there are so many brilliant pet insurances out there and this is NOT one of them.

I noticed that this had an Odeon sign instead of Vue when I passed by recently. I thought it might have been an old sign uncovered but I only remember it as a Warner Village cinema before becoming Vue. Does anyone know if it's going to reopen as an Odeon?

I have already posted this on another forum ( with pictures) so apologies if you have already seen this. 1712- Frances Pierrepoint -an Acton girl. Frances Pierrepoint spent time in Acton in the early 1700's because her father had a house off the high street. Frances was married in Acton but unfortunately for her it did not turn out well with her husband and she became a victim of the 1715 Jacobite rebellion. She spent most of her later life trying re- claim her confiscated possessions and look after her daughter whilst battling depression. Want to know more about this Acton girl of courage despite misfortune? Please come to Acton History Group on Wednesday 8th June at 19:30 at St. Mary's hall ( near Morrisons) £2 entry. The presentation includes about 50 pictures of things to do with the Pierrepoint family ( as in Pierrepoint Road) and Acton as it was. www.actonhistorygroup.co.uk

Tony Clements’ return to Ealing as its new CEO - to be confirmed at the April 19thFull Council meeting - has triggered some comment. As our ‘strategic director of Place’ for just 2 years, he took with him a handy £74,000 ‘compensation for loss of office’. Since his post was not abolished this must surely signify a falling out with his Council bosses. Happily, for Tony, he didn’t have to survive too long on his pay-out as the next month he was snapped up by LB Hammersmith as their interim strategic director (Economy), where he remained for just over a year followed by a series of portfolio contracts, before appearing on the candidates list for the position of Ealing’s Chief Executive. This is unusual as most employers, when a person receives a golden handshake, make it conditional that they do not seek employment with the said employer for a given period of time, for example five years.When a local authority realises that it has made a mistake with a chief officer appointment, or there has been a falling out with politicians (and neither of these are unusual) the solution is to restructure and delete the post, thereby creating a 'genuine' redundancy and avoiding expensive compensation for loss of office. This was not the case in this instance. Lucy Taylor currently fills this role, following on from Gary Alderson who also only remained in the role for 12 months.Tony Clements’ CV does not show experience of managing a large organisation let alone a London Borough. Once senior local government people start working as interims or take on jobs outside local government at the sort of age that Tony is, this often suggests some past problems. This may be very unfair, but if you had been a success as an 'executive director' in the period up until 2020 you would have found a CE post (perhaps outside London) if you were committed to staying in local government. Life at top level in local government is very demanding of any other life than at the Town Hall. Not a role to take on for a couple of years as part of a career trajectory.Ealing needs a strong Chief Executive, with a strong person management background and also willing to take on elected members if and when the council strays into questionable legal territory such as the non-production of statutory reports.You may wish to ask your current Ward Councillors why him?

Does anyone have a room to rent for a lovely Syrian chap who stayed with me (so I know he is easy to live with.) He has a job with Netflix currently in Twickenham studios but the location may change. He would like Acton Central, Shepherds Bush or maybe South Acton. He can pay up to £600 pcm and needs the room from June 1st.He is quiet, hard-working and wants somewhere he can settle and call home either in a share or as a lodger.His English is excellent but he would like to be with first language English speakers as he wants to improve his use of idioms.(Today’s new one was “paint the town red” after the Arsenal victory!)Please dm me for contact details.

The Swedish School at The National Archives in Kew is recruiting host families in Acton for Swedish 6th form students arriving in the end of August. In case you have a spare room in your home, this is a way for you to get an extra income and a chance to get to know a young person from Sweden. Many of our hosts have a long lasting friendship with their students as the student lives with you for 5 or 10 months. The host family provides care and a room for the student as well as breakfast and dinner. Host families receive £740/month/student. You can host two students if you have two spare rooms. More info here https://swedishschool.org.uk/en/become-a-host-family/ or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

There are anything between 100,000 to 300,000 Armenians living in Ukraine. Many are caught up in the hardships and sufferings taking place in that country. Many have become refugees, some for a second time following the 1990 Armenian pogroms in Azerbaijan and the 2020 invasion of Artsakh/Nagorno Karabakh with the support of NATO member Turkey.While my heart pleads for the suffering in Ukraine for everyone, what we are also witnessing is "selective compassion ", "selective sanctions", "selective media coverage" for those living in mainland Europe. A wrong is wrong irrespective of time and space. Equality means compassion and justice for all those who are being victimized, occupied or bullied. "Who after all remembers the Armenians" asked Hitler justifying his actions. Who now remembers what transpired in Cyprus 48 years ago with the Turkish invasion and occupation of that island. Where are the outcries for the people of Yemen, Kurdistan and Palestine? One day sadly no one will remember what is happening in Ukraine, apart of course the relatives and friends of those who are losing their lives/homes/livelihoods while the arm sellers/politicians will continue to profit as usual.

Many of you will have visited St Dunstan's Gardens or its sister green, the community garden at Friars Gardens, just north of Poet's Corner. These are much used parks with an unusual status. They are Public Open Spaces, but in their weird history, have a private 'owner' on their title deed. Do not be mistaken, this owner is only the 'underlying soil owner' but a potential new buyer of the title deed has launched an outrageous planning application to build 52 care home units and 22 parking bays on our beautiful green. To be very clear, and having spoken to a property lawyer in our road, this planning application should be thrown out (but you never know with our council) so it's important to get as many objections as possible. PLEASE PLEASE OBJECT NOW. IT TAKES TWO MINUTES. SEE LINK BELOW The company/individual whose names are on the title deeds for this Public Open Space (it is a POS) cannot build on this land because their "ownership is only of the underlying soil since control and management is held by the council on statutory trust for the public under section 10 of the Open Spaces Act 1906”. The applicant to build does not understand that his 'option to buy' this green from the current owners, Forward Realty, means that he will only get the "underlying soil" and is not entitled, by law, to build even a shed on it. There are other places to build 52 care homes and this is gross over-development and loss of green space in an area where green space is deficient.https://pam.ealing.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=makeComment&keyVal=R7AJZHJMGHA00

Please see below a comment from Gerald Moran re. the outline planning application to erect a 52-Bedroom commercial building made on the incorrect basis that the local plan's Public Open Space designation of both green triangles off St Dunstan's Avenue is erroneous."On 22 September 2000 the Goldsmiths' Company sold most of the rump of its Acton Estate to an offshore company, Golden Property Holdings Ltd. The latter applied for first registration of title to the numerous pieces of land. The retained freehold interest in the two green triangles was registered on 14 March 2001 under Title No AGL88554 but that was subject to overriding interests such as "public rights" included at section 70(1)(a) of the Land Registration Act 1925. Later transfers of that title have been subject to overriding interests under Schedule 3 to the Land Registration Act 2003, in particular under para. 5 "A public right" - meaning a right exercisable by anyone, whether he owns land or not, merely by virtue of the general law, such as a public right of way - Overseas Investment Services Ltd v Simcobuild Construction Ltd (1995) 70 P&CR 322.That would include the status of the triangles as public open spaces since the Agreement dated 20 June 1924 when Acton Borough Council undertook the care etc of the triangular gardens to be kept open for use by the public. That Council's authority was plainly section 9(b)&(c) of the Open Spaces Act 1906. Under section 10 of that Act the present Council holds care, management and control of the two greens on trust for the public as open spaces. They are maintained by the Parks Department, cutting grass, tending trees etc. One has already been enhance with public finance and has been acclaimed.Byelaw 7 of October 2000 prohibits erection of any building etc without consent of the Council. The Council would be in breach of trust if it purported to sanction the proposed development changing the use and nature of either of these public open spaces.The local plan (in its various parts and read with other documents such as on green space strategy) designates the triangles as public open spaces. These triangles operate as local parks giving valued benefits such as opportunities for recreation and so on as well as visually and environmentally. See also policies 2.18H and 5.5(a). There are numerous flats being built in the area, which as mentioned in chapter 5 of the Core Strategy means that the green spaces become ever more valuable resources. The March 2021 London Plan has for instance policy G4B. See also chapter 8 of the National Planning Policy Framework, revised 20 July 2021.Quite apart from planning control, there is surely no prospect of the Council not continuing to perform its statutory trust of care, management and control. This should be made clear so that this misconceived planning application be withdrawn. The analogy is not exact but the owner of underlying soil has no more right to develop the public open spaces than would an owner of sub-soil below a public road be entitled to build on the road."[Gerald Moran lives in Acton W3 and recently retired at Xmas 2021 from Hunters, Lincoln's Inn following some 40 years experience in property law]

Dear Councillor Mason,I hope you and your family are well. I draw your attention to this recent outline planning application.https://pam.ealing.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=R7AJZHJMGHA00&activeTab=summaryAs you know this is the second application to build on the open green spaces along St. Dunstan's Avenue. As you explained at the Churchfield Community Association AGM, it is possible for anyone to submit a planning application to build on any land so the Developers are within their rights to do so. We understand your point.Nevertheless it's worrying for local people to be the ones to resist opportunism by Developers like this one. We applaud your tweets on the application.It would be helpful if LBE would consider publishing an intention to refuse consent to build on publicly owned green space in the Borough "where it is legally possible to do so"Such a policy would blend well with other policies on clean air and residents' amenities and would help Residents, Councillors and Officers to deal with such chancers. We would be grateful for your thoughts in this Kind regardsMaire Lowe Of
