The Summer party - Saturday 24 June
Thanks very much to all of you who attended and we are all sure each and every one of you had a great time. As usual, the search for sponsors kicked off in February and we were lucky to secure support from 17 local businesses, which totalled 74 prizes.
We can't run these events for you without people turning up and helping. There wouldn't have been a party without 37 very kind neighbours giving up their time. Yes, would you believe it, we really needed that many helpers.

Annual General Meeting, Saturday 6 May
Our 8th AGM took place before a crowded Scout Hut - read the minutes here! (Word, 106KB)
Thames Tideway Tunnel
The tunnel building starts in the Autumn and although, strictly the project is still under some legal scrutiny, if all goes according to plan, building will start on the whole project and at the Acton Storm Tanks end in the Autumn of 2017. The Acton site's contribution to the project is expected to take around 3.5 years. For local residents, work will be permitted during the week, 08.00 to 18.00 and on Saturdays, 08.00 to 13.00. To begin with most of the work will be related to site preparation and assembly of machinery (just at the end near where Hatfield Road joins Greenend Road. and the construction of the tunnel will follow until early in the second year. During this first 15 or so months is when there is expected to be most of the earth excavation and vehicle traffic. All the vehicles will be on and off site from the same (North West) corner travelling (it is believed) in one direction down Warple Way and up Stanley Gardens. During the tunnel lining phases (probably from 12 to 15 months into the work or, say, late 2018/early 2019) most of the work will be underground.
Southfield Neighbourhood watch

History of your road - here now!
A website has been set up on the original group of houses, in Alexandra, St George's and Hatfield Roads, and their history. It holds information drawn from the 1911 census on the households, occupations and birthplaces of those living there, but also covers other topics like the neighbourhood, the shops, school, church, and park, the local transport facilities, which once included our own station, Rugby Road Halt. It also looks at the area in wartime, and welcomes contributions.
More information about the history of Acton in general can be found on the website of the Acton History Group.
