In previous years, Blondin Park, in W5, has been the location of various community planting events as well as the Autumn Apple celebration

This September, it will be buzzing again as it plays host to residents from neighbouring Brentford.

There were fears that the annual Brentford Festival, held at Boston Manor Park for the last seven years, would have to be cancelled for good after a row between the organisers and council contractors over proposals to charge.

However Ealing, and the local ward forum of Northfields, has saved the day and given permission for the community event to go ahead in this borough.

Local Ealing resident and Festival organiser, Linda Massey says:'' Although classed as an Ealing park it has houses on two sides that are within Brentford so no one need feel left out.  Although it is a slightly smaller park, because it does not have a flyover running through ....and it is missing a canal, it should not need to downsize.''

The date for the diary is Sunday 1st September 2013 and will start at 12 noon. 

The website will be continually updated with progress.

Would you like to volunteer to help in the planning to help deliver this popular West London event?  The first planning meeting will take place on Monday 21st January at 7 p.m. in the Pavilion (opposite the children’s playground by the car park in Boston Manor Park)  ...the more the merrier. 

If you are unable to attend but wish to be involved either in the planning or on the day please feel free to contact Linda, Event Manager on  or 07831 106973.
