A New Year Message

The year has brought many positive things for our area – no increase in Heathrow expansion as well as a guarantee that Crossrail will be here to put investment into our wonderful diverse borough helping to bring investment to Acton and Ealing.

Liberal Democrats hope that the coming year sees investment into Gunnersbury Park so that it is an open space full of culture making visitors proud of West London. We have been campaigning for improvements for many years.

Acton, Southall and Ealing need transport improvements so that people are encouraged to walk more and use more public transport. Ealing Broadway needs to proper interchange and not just a simple reorganisation of the buses! Liberal Democrats believe that anything less will be a missed opportunity.

The Council needs to trust residents more by giving more influence to their community representatives in their so that they can bring what is required – whether that be better parks, road safety schemes or better recycling. Involving residents in decision-making is crucial. A good Council does this often without thinking about it.

In union, politicians and our residents, can really ensure that the Council will improve Ealing.

I think it is very appropriate in these times where people feels less safe because of the dark nights that we thank the local police force as well as our other vital services such as hospitals, doctors, nurses, teachers and those who bravely fight fires.

But sometimes in difficult times this is when we come together and help each other out. Perhaps a group that are often not recognised are those who care and look after others. You are also our community heros who deserve much praise.

I wish you a successful 2011.
