Winter 2021/22: Optimism, discovery, celebrations and crisis
As someone who has recently been bed-ridden for weeks, walking is a rediscovered pleasure. In this issue we document an Ealing Civic Society designed walk in Ealing’s town centre. Over recent months it’s been all change in the top management team at Ealing Council. We review some of these changes. As we are hopefully coming out of the worst of the Covid-19 epidemic, we document how some community services are beginning to open up. Perivale gets featured with both a short history and a glimpse of how Perivale Library is surviving as a Community Managed Library. We wave goodbye to our disappearing Local Traffic Neighbourhoods and lament the unsatisfactory state of Ealing’s NHS mental health services for children. We celebrate Ealing’s musical heritage and congratulate a local, thriving martial arts initiative.
Spring 2021: Developments Tower Above
Welcome to the Spring issue of the Neighbours Paper! We feature some new authors in this issue and bring ourselves up to date with the achievements of Ealing Transition and look back at Ealing’s industrial heritage. Ealing Council’s burgeoning activities as a property developer are examined. We have an overview on the history of Hanwell and a future view on the over development in Southall. On the sport front we cover angling – possibly for the first time. Finally our resident poet Valerie reassures readers with her Covid-19 vaccination day experiences.
Let’s hope this is the last issue we put together under full Lockdown.
Take care and stay safe.
