The Conservation Policies of Ealing Council are instrumental in keeping our estate looking good so it’s important for us to pay attention to how those policies are being applied in other conservation areas. A planned large development in the heart of Ealing, that many believe will be detrimental and out of scale with the town centre, is now proposed. It would be worrying for us in Brentham if the principles of conservation policy are being ignored by the Council.

On behalf of the Brentham Society I wish everyone a really Merry Christmas and a great year ahead in 2017. I hope to see many of you at our AGM in March.
Gina Mallin – Chair of the Brentham Society
Unfortunately we have had to postpone our AGM, due to the unavailability of our planned speaker, as well as some key officers.
We have decided to hold over the AGM until early Spring next year, which will still be within 9 months of our August 2016 year end. More details will be announced in due course.

Please donate your points to the Tower Restoration Project. By doing so we could get a grant of £1,500 if we are top of the list of projects. We’ve been top of the leader board since January but other projects are catching us up and we have just dropped to second place. The scheme closes at the end of June.
Don’t know what I am talking about? Just go to their website and read all about it. In essence, its a scheme to reward you for recycling – you can collect points every week and also earn more by doing quizzes and making pledges. Its a ruse by Ealing Council to encourage you to recycle. New quizzes added in May.
So go to the Greenredeem website sign in, click on SPEND POINTS, then DONATE TO THE COMMUNITY then DONATE POINTS to our project and tell your friends to do the same! Your points could make all the difference.
(If you haven’t already signed up then do so and enter CFA in the Advocate box – that way we’ll get more points)
