December 7, 2011

Yesterday was certainly the most busy day of the campaign thus far for me:

  • Interviewed by one newspaper
  • Interviewed by one radio programme
  • Interviewed by a Somalian TV Station
  • Canvassing throughout the day

Picked up the following on a brief walk to meet someone earlier:

1) Graffiti outside 16 Harlington Road East

2) Very offensive graffiti on disused notice board against wall opposite number 9 Becketts Close
No picture included because of the nature of the graffiti

3) Graffiti near 36  Harlington Road West

4) Cabinet that needs to be secured – opposite 20 Harlington Road West

Will report later this morning.

Hotting up in Feltham and Heston

There is no doubt in my mind that Labour are worried and that they are putting more resources into this seat than at anytime since I have lived here.  I met two very nice students from Kingston University canvassing in Becketts Close in my ward.  A lot of people are telling me that they have been canvassed over the phone so times are interesting.

We have three – maybe four – prominent Conservatives coming to the constituency this week.  More on that later.

Best thing of all about this interest is that if I am elected, I will be around all year round and not just at election time!

Becketts, Field, HRW & The Dell

November 19, 2009

This morning, I spent nearly three hours on an estate inspection.  It never ceases to amaze me how many things are picked up on these inspections.

We started in the lovely Lavender Court.  We are very lucky in Feltham North to have two Sheltered Homes (Owen House being the other one) that are amongst the best in the Borough.

The place looked very good, as usual, and it was interesting to see the works begin on a new Conservatory.  The base was being put down:

The damaged wall was outside 30 Becketts Close:

We then visited some the two blocks in Becketts Close.  The following tagging was outside 57-76 Becketts Close:

Here is the entrance to 57-76.  I have asked for the windows to be cleaned and for some of the flyposting (taxi & racist stickers) to be removed:

The following tagging was outside 21 Becketts Close:

This was at the rear of 37-56 Becketts Close.  I was not certain if there was a blocked train under this but have asked for this to be checked:

This garage area was at the rear of 37-56 Becketts Close and 110 Field Road.  I will ask for these void garages to be given some attention:

I have asked Hounslow Homes to investigate whether they have responsibility for the following and if they do, to carry out an urgent repair.  It is next to the Garage for 68 Becketts Close:

The following pothole was outside 247 Field Road.  I think that this area is the responsibility of Hounslow Homes:

The following damaged wall is opposite 152 Field Road:

The following cracked slabs are outside 110 Field Road:

This is at the rear of 108 Field Road.  I will be asking Hounslow Homes to remove the green fencing as residents have expressed concern that people are using the broken fence to climb onto the wall.  The tagging on the wall also needs to be removed:

The following security light, according to residents, is not working.  It is located at the rear of 249 Field Road:

A lot to report.  Will do today.

More in Feltham North

Was out and about last Saturday morning and here are some of the things I saw.  The play area between Becketts Close and Field Road was looking in excellent condition:

The following was in Harlington Road West (slip road) near the junction with Becketts Close.  Not exactly certain why it is marked up but I will ask (my guess is that it has sunk a little?):

I know that there has been some comment about the Crown and Sceptre since it closed but about to reopen.  Here is what I saw:

I will make an enquiry with licensing about when this will be considered.

The following was taken opposite 59 & 61 Beeston Way – will ask for the tagging to be removed:

The following is opposite 91 Beeston Way – very difficult for someone with a pram to use this footway:

The following was outside 82 Hounslow Road, Hounslow.

Nice evening for deliveries

June 2, 2009

Out and about in Harlington Road West, Becketts Close, Lansbury Avenue, Field Road, Staines Road & The Vale with my friend and ward colleague, Gill Hutchison.

Here are some pics I took on my travels.  First one in Harlington Road West – near junction with Burns Avenue:

Second one of a tree in Burns Avenue.  I am told that when wet the branches hit pedestrians:

Third one is in the alley in the middle of the parade of shops in Harlington Road West (even side):

IMAGE_054

Fourth one is a dumped bag on the corner of Harlington Road West and Staines Road:

IMAGE_055

Fifth one is a picture of the grass verges in Staines Road – they could do with a cut:

IMAGE_056

Sixth one is of the Crown & Sceptre Pub.  Whilst it has been a while since I had a pint in there, I would be interested to know why it is boarded up:

IMAGE_057

And, finally, here is some graffiti on the wall at the side of the bungalows in Gardner Place – can just about see it on this photograph.  Access is from an alley in Lansbury Avenue (not far from junction with Harlington Road West):

It was lovely weather for it!
