I have just been on the Westside Radio 89.6 FM Community Show to promote the two Ealing parks that have been shortlisted for Boris’ Help a London Park scheme. I showed what a parochial local councillor I am when Matthew asked me who are we competing with. I knew that our parks were competing with 7 other parks in north west London but not the names of the other borough’s parks. Doh! The list is below. Two Ealing parks made the short list: Brent River Park and Southall Manor House Grounds.
If enough people vote for our parks then they will get up to £400K each for improvements. We already spend £8.8 million a year maintaining our parks but this boost will allow us to make them even better. If we don’t vote, we won’t get.
