Alley between New Road and Helen Avenue

June 5, 2012

I received a very helpful email from a constituent a couple of weeks ago expressing concern about the litter and overgrowth of the alley between New Road and Helen Avenue.  I received the following explanation on 1 June:

“I have received your email regarding the alleyway leading from New Road Feltham to Helen Ave. I have inspected this alleyway and found it to be very overgrown, I will discuss this with the community environment team who can then arrange for the cutting back to take place. Once the hedges and grass has been cut back I can then arrange for the alleyway to be manually swept and any debris removed. I found litter in places in the alleyway and have instructed the supervisor for this area to ensure that the alleyway is monitored every week to ensure that the weekly litterpick which occurs on a Monday actually happens and to the correct standard.”

Here is what I saw over the weekend:

Other than the grass cutting at the Glebelands, which can be seen on the last picture, everything else raises the question of how it has got into that state?  The overgrowth is covering lighting, which raises additional concerns to appearance.

I will ask for timescales for improving matters.

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?

Cold evening

Out and about delivering Feltham North latest this evening.  Delivered to Helen Avenue, Gladstone Avenue, Shaftesbury Avenue & Burns Avenue.  It was very cold and nice to be home.

Lest we Forget!

November 8, 2009

Turn out was very good at the various Remembrance Sunday Services today and I saw this for myself this afternoon in Feltham.  I was informed through friends that there was up to 300 people in Bedfont and 700 in Hanworth.  This is really great to know.  As I said a number of times in conversation with people, some of the recent tragedies in Afghanistan do serve to reinforce that today is not just about remembering those who gave their lives during the first & second world wars.  I am not saying anyone has ever organised it to be that way but anecdotally I think a lot of people thought that this was the case a couple of years ago.

On my walk from the High Street to the Scout Hut, I noticed the following.  Firstly, the following Hounslow Homes sign needs to be removed as it is untidy and out of date:


The following sign again is out of date but I know that the West Area Committee has approved a request to replace this and a couple of others.


The following overgrowth is on the High Street between the junctions with Poplar Way and Elmood Avenue:


As people who know me will testify, I do like to see the flag flown and was pleased to see it at the Scout Hut.


Also time, I reported the tagging on the bollards in Helen Avenue (junction with Harlington Road West):


Lest we Forget!

Walk to surgery earlier today

October 3, 2009

On my way to the joint surgery with Tony Arbour, I took a couple of problems.  First one is some tagging on the signage in Feltham Park (by the alley at the end of Helen Avenue):


And, I will find out what can be done about the following graffiti in the alleyway from Helen Avenue to New Road:


A little more delivery this evening

July 22, 2008

Lovely weather!  I took my time and delivered the latest Half Year Report to Gladstone Avenue and Helen Avenue.  Of course, this was only possible because the planned Borough Council had been cancelled.

Picked up two bits of case work but did not get talking to many people.  Maybe everyone was having a pleasant time in their back gardens?

Do feel free to post any feedback – good or bad – on the latest leaflet.

Some of you may have noticed the digging up of the new pedestrian island in Staines Road earlier today.  This follows on from an email that was sent by a constituent (and copied to me) regarding drainage problems.  That is what the work today has been about.  I hope to see the lining corrected by the beginning of next week.

For those who have not seen the new island, here it the picture that is also on the front of the leaflet:

Back to the weather, I think we are in for a very warm night.
