Anniversary Event As Gunnersbury Triangle Turns Thirty
Celebrating being saved from development
Come and celebrate the 30th anniversary of Chiswick’s Gunnersbury Triangle being saved from development. The event takes place on Sunday, July 14th from 12-5 pm and is free to all.
The Triangle is a secluded woodland haven, which is cherished by locals and home to a wide variety of wildlife. It’s hard to imagine now, but this unique oasis could once have been just another industrial estate.
Members of the campaign group 30 years ago
Plans to develop the Triangle (a former railway allotment) met an active campaign by local people. In July 1983, their campaign led to a landmark decision to protect the reserve for wildlife. London Wildlife Trust has managed the site since 1985, offering free access to the site, school education sessions, family events and community volunteering opportunities.
They will be celebrating this historic decision with an afternoon of family fun activities, arts and crafts, guided walks, guest speakers and of course, a birthday cake! This is a free event – all welcome.
