Cllr. Harvey Rose
Here is some sad news to share with our community. After a long life of more than 80 very full and rich years our previous councillor, Harvey Burlingham Rose passed away recently. Harvey had suffered pneumonia a couple of years ago and struggled with his health since. Our thanks and wishes go to Harvey in his peace and to his family.
Way back in 2009 we were in our formative years, penniless and Harvey wanted to help to get us established - we wanted an online presence. Harvey insisted we apply to the Ward Forum for an allowance of £300 to help set up our website. The grant was approved and our website was launched!
It is extraordinary in these times of continual change that Harvey was our local Southfield councillor for over 20 years between May 1994 and May 2014. Locally he was instrumental in negotiating the original funding for our local playground in Southfield Rec. His service was recognised by Ealing Council with their highest honour - Harvey was made a freeman of the borough. See the report of his retirement.
Harvey's records of interests reveal nothing on the council website but Harvey had diverse interests volunteering as he did at the Oxfam bookshop in Chiswick. He offered his services guiding visitors around the Chelsea Physic Garden and was a trustee of one of the Arts bodies at a local church. Harvey supported SPTRA for every year he was with us and his recommended support helped us launch SPTRA plus his erudition often left us in awe joining us as he did at our quiz nights website but Harvey had diverse interests volunteering as he did at the Oxfam bookshop in Chiswick.

History of your road
Unfortunately, the website on the original group of houses, in Alexandra, St George's and Hatfield Roads, and their history, is no longer available, as it is no longer being supported by the host. If anyone would like to know about the information from the 1911 census on the households, occupations and birthplaces of those living there, and other topics like the neighbourhood, the shops, school, church, and park, the local transport facilities, which once included our own station, Rugby Road Halt, and the area in wartime, please contact the Webmaster. Meantime, I am looking for a new home for it and will announce it here should I find one.
More information about the history of Acton in general can be found on the website of the Acton History Group.
