Yesterday in Heston West

February 28, 2010

Managed to begin delivering the latest leaflet and got quite a few out considering the up and down nature of the weather.

Not as many things picked up as usual:

1) Flyposting

My blog does reflect how much tagging and graffiti I report.  It does not capture the amount of flyposting I report partly because I do not wish to advertise such businesses.  Here is an example near 159 High Street, Cranford, from yesterday:

The above damages the streetscene as much as tagging in my opinion.

2) Damaged utility box

The following is in Somerset Waye (near the junction with Cranford Lane):

3) Grass verges

I know I have commented about this before.   I think it is a shame when people drive over these.   The first is outside 139a Brabazon Road:

The  next is outside 52 Brabazon Road:

And, 8, 14, 20 & 47 Meadow Waye:

4) New Community Centre

I was pleased to see the following (previous pictures showed it boarded up):

It was being opened that day by Councillor Elizabeth Hughes.

5) Highways

Was pleased to see something I reported had been repaired to a good standard:

Outside 39 Cobham Road:

Outside 99 Cobham Road:

64 Meadow Waye:

The carriageway looks very bad outside 195 Brabazon Road:

6) The UK Flag being flown with pride

Great to see outside Cranford Community College – sorry for no close up:

What will Colin Ellar and Robin Taylor if they see this?

Will report matters, where appropriate, tomorrow.

Yesterday in Heston West

January 31, 2010

What is interesting about looking out for environmental issues as I go out and about campaigning is that some issues exist everywhere and other issues are more obvious in some areas as compared to others.  For example, I was pleased that I saw hardly any graffiti in the first half of the session.


I was pleased to see new trees on the Brabazon Estate.  I am not sure if these trees are part of the extra 1000 trees pledge but was great to see nonetheless.

Here are some things to report:

1) Footway defects

The first one is on the corner of 59 Northfield Road – some could trip here:

The next is at 61 Northfield Road:

The next is outside 63 Northfield Road:

The next two pictures are outside 102-112 Northfield Road:

The next is outside 6 Meadow Waye:

The next is outside 34-36 Meadow Waye:

The next is outside 21 Heston Avenue:

The next is outside 76 Heston Avenue:

2) Grass verges

One of the things that concerned me most yesterday was the damage to the grass verges. Apart from not looking nice, when these have to be repaired, there is a cost to the taxpayer.  In some parts of the Borough such damage has been prevented with the use of bollards but as per a previous posting, this are not always popular.

The first was outside 2 Meadow Waye:

The next is outside 16-18 Heston Avenue:

The next is outside 24 & 26 Berkeley Way:

The next was between 188 & 192 Wentworth Road:

There were some others but not as bad as the above.

3) Graffiti

I did say at the top that I did not see much at the beginning but many of the utility boxes in Wentworth Road were covered.  They were at:

The next was outside 120 Wentworth Road:

The next is outside 158 Wentworth Road:

The next is outside 214 Wentworth Road:

I will report all of the above tomorrow morning.

Couple of things in Heston

July 6, 2009

I was on the Brabazon Estate on Saturday.  Here are a couple of the things I noticed and will report:


I will ask for the graffiti to be removed from the green box on the corner.

The following was next to 104 Brabazon Road and I will ask why it is boarded up:
