Ealing

Resources

This page, and the sub-pages available through LINKS on the right hand side of the page, contain hotlinks to many websites and, in some cases, documents which may be useful to members of our U3A. These lists are sub-divided into topics that complement one another.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic and while most of us are spending a lot of time at home, we are listing many websites which have online content available which may be of interest to our members. These are listed under 'ONLINE CONTENT' in the menu on the right.

An EALING PLAQUES walk - Carole McLoughlin, one of our members, has devised a walk, starting at Ealing Common Station but which could be picked up anywhere en route or nearby. It probably takes up to about 40 mins and includes 8 (or 9 as an extension) blue plaques in and around the Ealing Common, Central Ealing and Gunnbersbury Lane area, thereby keeping to an easily managed stretch of our Borough. Carole has written instructions in two parts/sections (click on the link above to access these) - one is the instructions and route to be taken with a space to add the dates and information given on each plaque, and a second section which gives just a little more detail on the person or people named.

This page is still under construction and further content is likely to be added over the coming months as we research other useful websites. Phil Broomsgrove/Ed Baker/Jurek Narozanski, May 2020
