Bovine lawnmowers

This herd of 45 Charolais cows from Osterley Park Farm have been helping to keep the grass low in Tentelow Meadow (by Southall) over the summer. The natural lawnmowers help clear space for wildflowers to grow – something the ancient meadow is renowned for.

Beacon for the Queen

A beacon was lit in Southall on 20 April to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday. It was one of thousands of such lightings taking place across the country.

Our borough’s beacon was lit at the Royal Logistic Corps, Army Reserve Centre in Southall. The mayor of Ealing, Councillor Harbhajan Kaur Dheer, performed the honours. She was joined by Major Andrew Gifford TD, Mr Richard Kornicki, Representative Deputy Lieutenant for Ealing, cadets, council members and other invited local dignitaries.

Litten Nature Reserve

When Neelum Bains visited Litten Nature Reserve in Greenford she was shown around the little oasis and its bug hotels, camp fire and introduced to some of its creatures.
