Southfield Ward Forum Latest News
Update on Acton Green Common playground improvements
Local Liberal Democrat councillors have been liaising with Ealing Council over the past few months about getting improvements made to the playground on Acton Green Common.
Councillor Harvey Rose said: “It looks like there will be a greater range of play equipment for local children, an all-weather table tennis court, more trees near the embankment and additional seating for parents. The Council will consult about these ideas and whether there should also be some gym equipment.”
On the agenda for the next meeting will be the possible alterations to Acton Green playground and the consultation about how lighting two paths across Southfield Rec has been received by residents. The meeting takes place at 7.30pm on Tuesday 5th February at Carlton Road Day Centre, W4 5DY. All welcome. Just turn up and ask any questions you have.
The Southfield ward forum meeting is where residents can discuss local issues with your three local Councillors and is chaired by Councillor Gary Malcolm. The police and Council officers such as the park ranger often attend.
Help Southfield Primary school by recycling your old phone
Many of us have replaced our mobile phones and have our old phones hidden away in a drawer. Southfield Primary School Association is working alongside a company called Fonebank again to run a mobile phone recycling initiative which will raise funds for Southfield school.
Councillor Andrew Steed said: “The scheme is very straightforward. Fonebank will pay their current website prices for any handset that is received from the school. If you could kindly search your cupboards for any unwanted mobile phones and have them at the ready. Recycling bags will be provided in book bags in the next couple of weeks.”
Conservative party accused of iPad hypocrisy
It has been alleged from an independent Councillor that when the Conservatives were in power they agreed to Council officers having iPads for their jobs. In opposition they changed their opinion!
Gary Busuttil said: “In opposition the Liberal Democrats produce alternative budgets that reduce wasteful expenditure and spend it on services for the vulnerable such as those with Alzheimer’s. The Conservatives clearly disagree with any Council plan, just for the sake of it.”
