Welcome to the September 2018 edition of Around Ealing magazine. My son is starting school in September and the anticipation of the first day is a potent mixture of emotions: Pride, excitement, anxiety. I’m sure it will be a bittersweet cocktail tasted by families across the borough as they edge, each day, ever closer to that waiting school gate and a new little world.
