Long list of good work by coun­cil

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

HAV­ING seen a let­ter in the Gazette stat­ing that the lights at Ruis­lip Manor are gar­ish and cheap look­ing, I just had to write to say how much I love the over­haul the rail­way bridge has had ( Pink/blue lights a waste of our money, Let­ters, Oc­to­ber 8).

The bridge now looks ab­so­lutely bril­liant, and it re­ally de­fines Ruis­lip Manor as a dis­tinct com­mu­nity.

I’ve never seen the Manor in such a good con­di­tion fol­low­ing the coun­cil re­fur­bish­ment, and the shops there are be­com­ing more busy and the whole area more vi­brant by the day.

In fact, I’d like to say a huge ‘well done’ to Hilling­don Coun­cil for all its work around the bor­ough in re­cent years.

So much has been in­tro­duced and im­proved. To list just a few: the re­fur­bished li­braries, the work at Ruis­lip Lido, the leisure cen­tres, the low park­ing fees in car parks, ren­o­va­tion work in North­wood Hills, Eastcote and Ruis­lip Manor, the lovely flow­er­ing bas­kets that have been put out in high streets this year, the Gold card, the con­stant work on resur­fac­ing roads – I could go on and on.
