Cleaning Up West Ealing
£40,000 Funds available for a variety of projects
Residents are being urged to come up with ideas on how to tidy up West Ealing.
The West Ealing Champions Fund has individual grants of up to £2,500 available for projects that will help improve the area - in and around the high street. A total of £40,000 is available.
The projects will need to address one of the following categories, welcoming town centre – making it attractive with things like art projects and gardening; distinctive town centre – highlighting the strengths of the town centre with festivals and exhibitions; diverse town centre – projects that offer visitors more to see and do in the town centre; growing town centre – projects that improve access into employment and training for local people.
Anyone interested in finding out more about the champions fund before submitting an application is invited to a workshop being held on Tuesday, 10 November at 6.30 – 8.30pm at Welshore Community Hub, 99 Broadway, West Ealing, W13 9BP.
Leader of the council, Councillor Julian Bell, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to tell us how we can help improve West Ealing. With your help we can make the area a more thriving town centre for people who live, work and visit there. You never know, it could be your project that wins.”
The West Ealing Champions Fund has been set up by Ealing Council in partnership with Ealing Community & Voluntary Service.

Bids are being accepted until 8th December.
