Scrafield Family

Just seen this. Yes, I was born and lived in Hillyard Rd for two years opposite the Scrafields and my family knew them or rather Gran and Granpa.. We both eventually got moved out to Northolt as part of re-housing and I eventually went to Vincent senior school with Robin Scrafield. Lost touch as you do as we both left in 1967.

Wed Feb 26


I lived in Brookbank, wondering if we knew each other. There is a website cuckooites.org has lots of photos on there - also a facebook page.

Yes, Cuckoo Lane Surgery is very good, it is mostly run by nurses for minor complaints and there are also two doctors, but it is a really very well run surgery in my opinion.

Try the Gurnell Leisure Centre

I'm sure the Gurnell Leisure Centre would let you join their gym. It's on Ruislip Road East. It's part of the leisure centre, so is cheaper than anywhere privately-run. I used to pay £35 a month for an adult membership to the gym, pool and fitness classes.

MOTs in Hanwell?

Does anyone know a good place to MOT a Fiat in Hanwell or the surrounding area?

Doesn't have to be a Fiat specialist.

Fri Jul 27

Quickest way to Shepherds Bush is change from 207 Ealing Broadway to Central Line - journey time approx 30-35 mins. By bus in rush hour could get closer to an hour

Osterley Views is nice. The estate outside is social housing. I have friends who lived in Osterley Views for years with no problems. In the estate outside, you get the odd bit of fly-tipping, graffitti and low-level petty crime. It's not unsafe to walk through though.

Fri Jul 27

1 hour 15 mins

It takes me 55 mins to get from Hanwell station to Holborn, so 1 hr 15 is a reasonable guess for Cannon St (walking from Bank).

One the way back it gets a little harder because the trains arte only every 30 mins even at peak time, so you have to time it right.

singer/vocalist wanted!

Hi there, my names Jaz (21) and i'm the drummer for a London based Metal band called MoonRabbit. We are currently in the middle of writing our debut album and are awaiting the final touch to get on the road (plenty of contacts, gigs wont be a problem...truthfully) we're currently a 4 piece looking for the 5th, we have two guitarists, a bassit and a drummer (me) one of the guitarists is currently doing vocals in a very similar style to the vocalist of in flames, but what we are looking for a vocalist who can bring something new and unique to this. The music is very progressive, very melodic and very hooky but has a real heavy feel to it at the same time. If your the character and voice that we're looking for, please don't hesitate in contacting me, even if it is just to find out more. We'll be holding auditions very soon! We like to meet all candidates before hand for a chat and a drink though! Don't be shy!

please contact me at...

Osterley Views

Once you're in the development it is fine! I've lived in Osterley Gardens (next door). It is slightly preferaby to Views in that the view is better (i.e. you're not looking out onto the housing estate). There are kids (8-15) who sometimes hang around by the gates..or by the local SPA shop infact they look menacing but are normally okay. In the time that I have been here have only twice had a stone through the window...it wasn't personally they were just throwing from outside. I am used to the environment now and of course you have to be a little streetwise... Personally I would opt for a better location..however if you have a car & can drive I think it would be okay..there is also a gym 5 mins walk away which is very nice.. I hope this helps

Hanwell to Shepherds Bush

Is a 207 bus the most hassle free option? How long does it take max during commuting / rushhour in both directions? The tube and train connections were nightmarishly busy when I tried after work.

Also, I went to look at a lovely flat in the old Ealing Hospital now converted into private flats. Called Osterley Views - It's very secure and gated but just outside seems a little sprawling and barren with not much going on. Does anyone know the area?

I'd be interested in knowing how safe it is by this part of the Uxbridge Rd. It's by the Hospital right next to what appears to be a new housing estate. The bit by the canal seemed lovely. I'd like to know if the areas dodgy in any way.

I'm in my mid 20's, creative, like films, pubs/bars, restaurants etc.

Is this area for me?

Any contributions - negative or positive - would help a lot! Thanks
