Bedford park Residents' association
We have a new map available to play with showing a live feed of all the listed properties in Bedford Park. The map is fully interactive and allows you to click on an icon and pull up a picture and description of the building in question. It also covers more than just buildings, listing the phone box outside St Michael's And All Angels (which for those of you intrigued is a 1935 K6 Model, called the 'Jubiliee model' See more information here: Wikipedia.org/Red_telephone_box).
The map was put together by data and mapping expert Dan Cookson - @danc00ks0n - using a data set that has been made available to developers by Historic England. The map also includes information on the Blue Plaques in the area using data made available by openplaques.org. Dan's map actually covers the whole of the UK but he has kindly shared the Bedford Park section with us.

The Chiswick Calendar is hosting a live EU Referendum debate, here in Bedford Park, on 16th May. Hosted by BBC News presenter Julian Worricker, the debate brings together a panel representing politics, business and journalism to discuss the most important political decision of a generation: Should we go or should we stay?
For Ealing Residents - The majority of the borough will move to a new recycling and rubbish collection system from Monday, 6 June. Residents are being asked to look out for a personalised letter from the Council explaining their new services.
Residents need to let the Council know which bin choices they favour before April 28. Details of the options available are laid out below.
There are three standard wheelie bin sizes generally on offer by both Ealing and Hounslow councils with Ealing Residents allowed to purchase a smaller, recycling specific one in a few circumstances.
We have outlined their sizes and rough capacities below and have provided some helpful information on how to change the sizes you require.
"Survey results show small majority of Residents in favour of the Oktoberfest proposal"
The interim results are available from the the BPRA consultation on the proposed Oktoberfest event to be held on Acton Green adjacent to Turnham Green. (See survey here). The survey results to date show a small majority in favour of the council granting at least a one-off permission for the organisers to hold the event.
According to their social media profile, the Bedford Park Community Group will be addressing 'loneliness and disaffection amongst older, retired people in Bedford Park with a particular focus on teaching digital skills'. To follow them please go to the Facebook page here or the Twitter feed @BedfordParkCG.

In response to your concerns about crime and security highlighted in a BPRA Members’ Survey last year, an event has been arranged so you can meet the local Metropolitan Police team and Neighbourhood Watch representatives. The police of the Safer Neighbourhood teams from both Ealing and Hounslow will be at the meeting to discuss crime in our locality and measures you can take to protect yourself and your property.
The Metropolitan Police will be using the event to demonstrate their 'SmartWater' initiative, aimed at marking valuable posessions with a forensic traceable liquid to deter burglars. If you would like to know more about this initiative please see the Met Police webpage about it here. The Police have informed us that kits will be available at the meeting.
Drinks will be available from 6.30pm – do come along and bring your neighbours!
