This is the first edition of Southall Light Show, which aims to rediscover Southall's historical and contemporary buildings, squares, parks and canals, through a series of light art interventions.
This ambitious outdoor exhibition will aim to create surprise and delight with artworks inspired by the varied cultural backgrounds of local residents.
We aim to transform our nocturnal townscape by shedding light on the unique character of Southall!
Ramgarhia Sports and Social Club (RSSC) is working in partnership with the London Borough of Ealing (LBE) to regenerate the derelict Durdans Park Cricket Ground for public use. This site has been known for anti-social behaviour and through consultation with local residents and the local ward forums we have gained support for our project.
The construction of a new pavilion was recently completed with finance raised through grant funding and contributions from LBE. The pavilion includes high quality changing facilities, toilets, kitchen and a social hall which can be used for social events and well-being classes. The cricket pitch and outfield has been re-laid to English and Wales Cricket Board standards and will be ready for the 2018 cricket season. A 5-a-side football pitch has also been added on the site to provide football training facility for juniors.
The completed facility will provide a safe and cohesive environment for the public to socialise, take part in and enjoy sports.
The land is owned and maintained by the residents association which is funded by voluntary donations. It has become overgrown and unattractive, and we do not have enough money to complete this project. It suffers from fly tipping, looks unloved, and litter gets trapped in the bushes and undergrowth. In the evenings there is poor visibility and the area is very dark due to the trees and bushes which are really overgrown, and block the street lighting. It is difficult to cross at the crossing point due to poor visibility for both pedestrians and vehicles.
We'd love to re-designed the space so it can be easily maintained, is safer and more attractive. We want to create some space for the local community to enjoy. The residents are all keen to chip and do a bit of gardening, but it's too big for us to take on ourselves without expertise and funding. We would love some help!
I have seen a lot of homeless people on London streets. I have decided to live as a homeless to experiance their life and I found no less then tough and lonely. I felt while being homeless you have no objectives, it was difficult to take shower and find job. That's how I came to know why homeless person can not come out of this situation. I truly believe if we try and help them out we can make difference to their lives.
Horsenden Grape and Honey farm project will enlist the active HAAGA Community, Schools, Scouts, NCS and local Community to transform a derelict plot of land to produce in due course, organic Grape juice and Honey production. The growing and production process will be captured in an educational facility including a photo exhibition ' from seeds to bees to sale' building awareness in the local community at each stage of the process. Produce will, eventually, be marketed to local schools, hospitals at cost to replace 'fizzy drinks' which will include generating the educational value of Horsenden G & H Farm.Organic honey will be marketed to Hay fever sufferers and Health conscious parents/residents across the local area.
