A statement from us regarding recent acts of vandalism in Gunnersbury Park.

“We are disappointed to report that there have been several incidents of graffiti in the park, relating to issues around the bowling green and personally attacking members of our team.

While there may be differing opinions on the future of the bowling green and pavilion, acts of vandalism and criminal damage are never acceptable ways to express those opinions.

At a time of continued operational and financial pressures, the unnecessary expense of having to remove graffiti is an unwelcome distraction.

We hope that the actions of the individual or small group of individuals responsible will be deplored by the majority of park users."

Mindful Mondays: Yoga for Desk Jockeys

For rounded shoulders, keyboard neck, iPhone claw, and when you're struggling to come back to Computer Pose. This is your essential yoga toolbox for working from home.

No previous experience necessary. Think of it as a few nice stretches and a couple of handy breathing techniques to cut the brain fog and turn up focus (creativity, performance, concentration.. insert what's lacking here).

Practicing on a mat is preferable but can be done on carpet or a towel on the kitchen floor, or if you're pushed for space plenty can be done just sitting in a chair. Wear comfy clothes (if you weren't already :-))

For #TBThursday we're throwing back to the 1930s with this oil painting of Gunnersbury Park by Maxwell Ashby Armfield.

Maxwell was born in 1899,and is known as one of the outstanding pupils to have emerged from the Birmingham School of Art, and was a painter of the Arts and Crafts Movement. One of his works, 'Faustine' was purchased by the French state in 1909 and is on display at the Musee d'Orsay.

This painting of Gunnersbury shows children playing by the Horseshoe Pond and the Orangery, facing northwards towards the Large Mansion.

This work was painted shortly after Gunnersbury Park was first opened to the public in 1926, and shows people enjoying the green space. This work definitely resonates more now with so many of us finding peace and enjoyment throughout lockdown in our local parks.

Bit nippy outside isn't it?

Our gardening team have been busy wrapping up some of our more tender plants to help get them through this Big Freeze, while also mulching the rocking garden with gravel to protect the roots below ground.

Today my wife and 10m old daughter joined me for a walk in the park. As soon as she parked, a piece of bark fell off onto the car. No big damage in the car, but it could have fallen on my daughter. There has been reports of bad looking trees and a few of them have fallen lately. Please have them check out
