Word is Peter Mandleson supports the idea of a People's Bank. Our concern is that the abysmal quality of service at Acton Main Post Office, the so-called People's Post Office, will be translated into an equally abysmally run bank. Mr and Mrs Taank's friendly local post office in Churchfield Road, a victim of last year's closure programme, continues to be sorely missed. Read about 'The People's Post Office' in the Acton Rant.
We have a Forum. The focus should mainly be on issues about the Park, however it is perfectly acceptable to contribute more general content about Acton itself. Use the Chat utility to talk directly to other visitors.
Is there something you'd like to get off your chest? Lower your blood pressure by contributing to the Acton Rant. Could you write a story or Article about Acton Park?

We would like to create a gallery of Photos which show the park passing through its seasonal cycle, not only the changes to the trees, plants and wildlife, but also as a record of how people use the park. Again please get in touch. We would love to hear from you. Do you have any Videos you could share with us? These can be more general and show what is going in Acton as well as the park. Upload your video to www.youtube.com and send us the URL.
