Welcome to the December 2018 edition of Around Ealing magazine. As you can see in the interactive or PDF versions of the magazine below, we lead on the front page with the news Ealing Council is working to bring about 2,500 genuinely affordable new homes for the borough.
Indeed, there is a little bit of a housing ‘section’, with six pages on various elements of the subject, from landlords to an urban art project at South Acton – and a look at the ongoing and huge estates regeneration programme taking place.
There is more housing-related news in the Up Front section, with a large and prominent block of flats at Hangar Lane being converted to homes; and also an award for the council’s temporary accommodation using converted shipping containers.
With Christmas approaching, we include details of events and activities at Gunnersbury Park Museum and in our town centres; and also give you revised collection dates for your rubbish and recycling over the festive period.
A sad, but depressingly predictable, side of this time of the year is the expected rise in reports of domestic violence. We spoke to a victim who managed to escape the clutches of her abusive husband – and also give some advice for any readers who might find themselves in a similar situation, or know someone who is.
