EALING WALK APP
If you are walking around Ealing with your smartphone or tablet you might like to look at the new Historic England app which updates a walk originally devised by Ealing civic society committee member John Foster White in the 1970s. The walk is centred around Ealing and goes as far north as Brentham and as far south as St Mary's Church. It has now reappeared in a form for use on smartphones as a new "app". You can download the app on your phone and take it with you when you walk around the area. We are delighted that this piece of history has been updated in time for our 50th anniversary next year and is being made more widely available. John, an eminent local historian, whom some of you may remember, would have been delighted! Find it by searching for "Walk History" in the Android or Apple App Store.
Every year we shortlist new architecture, including renovations, and newly designed landscapes for our annual Award. We are now busy shortlisting, but would welcome nominations up to 16 September. Details of the criteria for the Award are available via a download here, which also includes the nomination form. Last year Ravenor School, St Mary's Garden and the Walpole Park restoration were all highly commended. You can see previous award winners on our Awards pages.
You are also welcome to attend our annual Award ceremony on Tuesday 8 November at 7.30 in Ealing Town Hall, W5 2BY. Our speaker will be Rupa Huq MP.
