|A Warm Welcome for all at Crispins This Festive Season|
One of Ealing's top wine bars has some special plans
With the ever increasing chance that snow will start to fall it does make you feel very Christmassy. I always think that despite the natural inconvenience and hazard it can cause, there is something magically cleansing about the sight of fresh crispy white snow that also seems to stir a united spirit to help each other.
I was humbly reminded of this snow induced comradery when recently this year the Ealing Community rallied in support of local shop keepers suffering in the aftermath of the appalling riots. It’s worth sparing a thought for the two remaining businesses on Ealing Green, Green Mango and the Ealing Green local, that were so badly devastated that sadly they will not be joining in this year’s festive cheer.
However for those more fortunate businesses that saw an outraged local community unite, it will be a pretty festive atmosphere around Ealing green this year.
With this in mind I popped into Crispins wine bar this week to see what was on their agenda for Christmas and true to form Polka and Alex are really getting in the spirit. Their welcome is second to none and I really mean it when I say “no one is ever a stranger”.
There is one more little gem that Polka’s been up to as well.
She has united three women artists from Ealing who are displaying some of their work in the cozy confines of the wine bar till the end of January.
Listed below are the details of all three artists and after viewing their work I am equally as curious to meet the others.

In her own words: “My work is primarily based on the landscape, both observed and imagined. Colour is a central concern in each piece. Colour conveys both mood and emotion; but looking beyond this, there is a sense of the place and a narrative. Dogs figure in some of these paintings – they cover the ground and interact with the natural world in a way that we can only imagine. The dogs observed are among Gunnersbury Park’s finest.” Ann Marie lives in Ealing. She paints in ACAVA’s art studio, Hetley road, Sheperds Bush.
