East Acton’s Wishing Well becomes The Morton Arms after major refurbishment with new look

East Acton’s Wishing Well boozer has had a major investment to its premises and has now re-opened as The Morton Arms to pay homage and show its connection to Acton with Ealing Central and Acton MP, Dr Rupa Huq and East Acton ward councillor Hitesh Tailor visiting to see the improvements.

Following £160,000 refurbishment, The Morton Arms is named after the late sportsman Geoff Morton, born in Acton in 1922, who was renowned for his cricketing and footballing skills as well as being an umpire and sports coach.

The Morton Arms is part of the Craft Union Pub Company which won the 2022 Best community Operator title in the Publican Awards and aims to be at the heart of the local community, welcoming residents, local clubs and groups, individuals working in the area and visitors on their travels.

Dr Rupa Huq, MP for Ealing Central and Acton, said: “Myself and Cllr Hitesh Tailor were delighted to have been able to visit The Morton Arms and meet with the team. The pub plays a great part in bringing together the Ealing and Acton community, and it was great to hear about this first hand from Licensee Shauna. We both thoroughly enjoyed our visit and I have since returned multiple times, in which I had a great time.”

Shauna Rendell, Licensee of The Morton Arms, said: “It was lovely to meet Dr Rupa Huq and Cllr Hitesh Tailor and show them around the pub. It was great to tell them about the role we play within the local community and how we continue to welcome all those in the Ealing and Acton area into the pub.”

Ms Rendell added: “The pubs recent investment has brought so many new opportunities and has allowed us to create a proper community hub for everyone to come along and enjoy a drink with friends and family. The pubs name means a lot to the Acton community and really helps showcase our love for sports. We pride ourselves on being a great community pub and look forward to the future of The Morton Arms.”

 

The Morton Arms is located at: 61 Old Oak Common Lane, Acton, London W3 7DD
