You are invited to visit local allotments on an open day which is taking place on Sunday 16 July.

There will be a chance to have a look around, meet the plot holders and buy plants at what are described as ridiculously low prices.

The Acton Gardening Association runs two sites near Bromyard Avenue opposite Perryn House and opposite Bromyard House (W3 7LP) and at Oak Way site behind Vale Estate (W3 7BP).

The sites will be open from noon to 3pm and the event is billed as ‘Kew without the Queues’.

Live music on the day will be provided by Chiswick based ‘A Wing and a Prayer’ performing a mixture of country, rock and roll and Irish music. They admit to being at the different end of the age spectrum to another local band Askew who recently performed at Glastonbury with an average age of 70 but promise a gig in Acton equivalent to the one held recently in Worthy Farm.

It will be a busy weekend for A Wing and a Prayer who two days earlier are playing at a Quiz Night with Pizza at the Chiswick Catholic Centre on Dukes Avenue.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
