It is not just Perivale Park that is getting some attention.  The Government has just announced the winners of a national competition called “Pocket Parks”.

There are 15 London boroughs with these projects under way, including the Perivale Park Orchard Garden  project in Ealing. The list of projects in the  London boroughs area is:

Blenheim Gardens Resident Management Organisation, Bankside Open Spaces Trust, Community Education Foundation & Lyncx (CEF Lyncx), Friends of Ufford St gardens, Lambeth
Parkside Malvern Residents Association Crop Drop, Haringey
