Next few days

May 27, 2011

Not around much over the next few days so if you make comments and wonder why they do not appear, it is because I will not be as frequent as usual in checking emails, blog etc.

I hope to comment soon on what was an interesting & friendly Annual General Meeting of the Borough Council last week.

Feltham Arena yesterday

May 27, 2011

It has been a while since I visited and a visit was overdue so met up with an Officer at the Council and representatives of Feltham Football Club.  Here are some pictures taken.  The car park at the end of Shakespeare Avenue is now looking much better:

I recall that the following material which has been delivered this week is being used for drainage:

Work was taking place on the drainage as I was there.  The next two pictures just about capture the line that has been dug in the centre:

There is understandably quite a bit of interest in this.  Every single person would like matters to have moved faster from residents, the football club, the Council to me.  I very much hope to see progress on the pitches this year and the beginning of next.

Feltham Park pond 22 May 2011

May 23, 2011

No drinking seen yesterday afternoon and most of the park was looking very good.  Such a disappointment to see the pond as follows:

It is a shame that the pond is again the Achilles heal of the park.

Drinking zone

I went to Feltham Park for a walk with my children earlier today and reported another breach.  The Operator asked me whether there was signage in the park and I started doubting myself so searched for something.  Here is the entrance at Hounslow Road (opposite entrance to Park Way):

The Chronicle have been in touch for a comment from me.  The key thing I would stress for any article they write in response to my blog postings is:

“I encourage all residents to report any drinking within Feltham Park to the police on 0300 123 1212.  Recently, I saw a large number of empty beer cans and bottles at one location near the alley to Helen Avenue.  I have therefore written to the Area Inspector and the relevant department at the Council to ask for their response to the problem.”

I will of course provide an update via the blog when I am in receipt of a response.  One thing I have not said recently is that the grass cutting in the park continues to be of a good standard and there continues to be no tagging on the kids play equipment.

Alley between Helen Avenue & New Road

May 15, 2011

On Saturday, I noticed the following:

The above is dangerous (especially first and second pages) so will be asking Continental to look at this.

At the side of 75 Helen Avenue, I noticed the following earlier today.  First, not sure whether broken fencing should stay in current form (near entrance to park):

And, abandoned trolley:

Will report in the morning.

Drain Gulley on junction of Gladstone Avenue & Helen Avenue

May 15, 2011

This has been the case for around a week (atleast when I first noticed).  I will ask what it is about?

Path off Dick Turpin Way 2

Taken earlier this morning:

Will report the overgrowth today.

Feltham Park

May 9, 2011

Some things taken from recent visits.

1) Breach in Controlled Drinking Zone

I do report breaches when I see them and think I need to encourage others to do the same.  Here are some things seen yesterday (near Helen Avenue entrance):

2) Dumped trolley nearby

3) Near bench between park and Helen Avenue entrance

Lots of bottle tops and cigarettes:

4) Pond

It is looking very bad again.  Lets see if it will be improved after I report it?

5) Rear of Feltham Assembly Hall

Some tagging needs to be removed, plus a lick of paint would possibly be required?

Will take up each of the above today.

It was done quickly

May 9, 2011

See previous posting.  The work was carried out within a couple of days.  Will need to report that the area is overgrown again.
