EFRA Annual General Meeting

A reminder of our Annual General Meeting, which is on Thursday 26 May 2011 at 7:30pm in the Log Cabin, 259 Northfields Avenue.

At the meeting we will report on our activities over the past year, following which there will be an open discussion. We expect to have some of the Northfield Ward councillors and the Safer Neighbourhood Team in attendance.

Please arrive slightly early if you need to renew your membership on the evening.

Christadelphian Meeting Hall

EFRA recently responded to a planning application for an extension to the Christadelphian Meeting Hall (previously known as the Sherman Labour Hall) on Dorset Road.

We supported local residents in opposing the removal of a mature lime tree on the site. Please see the article on our web site for the full response.

Ealing Civic Society Annual Lecture

The annual lecture presented by Ealing Civic Society is on Tuesday 31 May at 7:30pm in Ealing Town Hall. The eminent Richmond architect and author Sir Donald Insall will give a lecture about the conservation and development of historic buildings.

Ealing Civic Society works to preserve and improve the borough of Ealing in such areas as Conservation, Green spaces, Heritage and Transport. For more information about Ealing Civic Society please see their web site.

Membership renewal

We thank all members for their support and ask them to renew their membership. The membership fees go towards the costs of running the association, including printing two newsletters each year, maintaining the web site, supporting other local campaigning organisations, and hiring the Log Cabin for the AGM and committee meetings.

Membership is £2.00 for the first member at a residence and then £1.00 for each additional member. Membership subscriptions can be passed to your street rep, whose name and address should be on the recent printed newsletter, or directly to our membership administrator - Carla Andrewes, 24 Blondin Avenue.

Save Ealing's Centre news

Save Ealing's Centre, the organisation that was formed originally to campaign against the West London Tram scheme, and most recently opposed the redevelopment plans for the Arcadia site and Dickens Yard, has issued its Spring 2011 newsletter.

Perhaps the most important news is that Glenkerrin, the company that owns the Arcadia site, has gone into adminstration. Little progress has been made on new plans for the site since the Secretary of State rejected Glenkerrin's plans more than a year ago, and this latest news suggests that the delay will continue.

See the Save Ealing's Centre web site for more information.

Northfield Ward Forum

The next Northfield Ward Forum will be held on Tuesday 21 June at 7:30 pm at Little Ealing Primary School, Weymouth Avenue.

The ward forum is led by the Northfield Councillors and covers general local concerns, such as community safety, traffic and transport schemes, parks and street improvements. Items on the agenda will include:

  • Question and answers with the local Police team
  • The development proposals for site covering The Log Cabin, Bramley Road Open Space, Scout Hut, Northfields Library
  • Saving Northfields Library
  • Proposals for future projects

For more details and minutes from previous ward forum meetings please see the ward forum page on the Ealing Council web site.
