Local community invited to vote on Gunnersbury project for 2024

Following the launch last year of the Community Choice project, Gunnersbury Park & Museum, which is jointly owned by Hounslow Council and Ealing Council, is inviting the public to choose a project for 2024 to benefit the local community.

In 2022, over 600 people voted to plant new hedgerows to bring new habitats to the park.

Like last year, the winning project will be funded by a percentage of the profits from summer events put on at Gunnersbury Park.

There are three new projects for locals to choose from – to bring new benches to the park by the sports fields, give bursaries for schools with a high percentage of free school meals to attend an immersive education programme or purchase outdoor gym equipment which would be free for all to use.

Professor James Knowles, chair of Gunnersbury Museum and Park Development Trust said: “The Community Choice initiative gives our local community a chance to vote for a project at Gunnersbury, funded from the profits of our summer events, which will benefit them. There’s three really worthwhile projects to choose from, so make sure you watch the videos and cast your vote before 2 January. May the best project win.”

The three projects to choose from are:

Project One: Providing local schools who would otherwise miss out with bursaries to attend our school sessions

Project Two: Improving access to Gunnersbury with more benches

Project Three: Bringing free outdoor gym equipment to the park

Voting ends on 2 January 2024 and the winning project will be revealed on 3 January 2024.
