For example, this photo of the magnificent wild flower meadow in Gunnersbury Park was taken recently by our chairman. If you haven’t been to the park lately, it is well worth a visit to see the meadow and to view the progress being made on the regeneration. The wraps are off the large mansion and the new café is taking shape.
