We’ll continue to review the businesses who have expressed interest in the new commercial units along Portobello Road, to decide which will be the best fit for the area.
Athlone Gardens is particularly popular with families – due to the well-used children’s play area – and dog owners. In order for everyone to enjoy the park to the full, it’s important for dog owners to keep their dogs under control, and pick up anything they leave behind.
We know that local residents are very keen to be able to use the new section of Athlone Gardens. We thank everyone for their patience during recent delays to its opening. We plan for it to open early this year, once a new gate has been fitted.
The Venture Centre worked in partnership with Hammersmith Play Association to take 37 children from four centres – Venture Adventure Playground, White City, P3 and Hornimans Adventure Playground – to Badgell’s Wood in Kent. This gave the children a chance to mix with others around the area, as well as develop team-building and other practical skills.
