Fireworks on Friday 2 Nov and Sat 3 Nov

Fireworks on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd November
Our Council is hosting a fireworks display in early November, not to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night, but to "bring the love to our popular fireworks displays in Hammersmith & Fulham this year".

The evening is branded as "H&F Loves Fireworks".

Poor old Guy Fawkes is getting gradually edited out of our national traditions. But then, perhaps it's not so surprising that an annual event to celebrate the burning of Catholic bomb plotters may, after a good long run, finally have had its day.

Gunnersbury Park Restoration

The 18th Century "Large Mansion" at Gunnersbury Park
Ealing and Hounslow Councils have been working for many years, using funds awarded by the National Lottery, to restore the old Rothschild mansion and its extensive grounds at Gunnersbury Park.

The mid-18th Century "Large Mansion" and its park were sold to the public at a bargain price by the Rothschild family in 1926.

Since then however, the buildings had fallen into disrepair.
