In this edition we look at the many good things on offer in Ealing this summer: Free courses and activities for young people in the holidays, youth music events, adult courses at Walpole Park and all those wonderful summer carnivals, music and comedy festivals, park parties and shows throughout the Borough! We also spotlight Perivale and Southall as well as considering some more worrying aspects of Ealing life. Our hospital is under threat, as are areas that face unwanted densification to provide more housing. Even those green spaces for which Ealing is so admired may need guarding. Residents keep alert!
