Cherry Blossom Festival

Plans are afoot for a Cherry Blossom Festival this spring.

Every year the trees along Stavely Rd, in Grove Park, put on a magnificent show. 

Resident Sally Malin decided there’s no better way to celebrate the coming of spring than to have a street party when the trees are in bloom.

Sally, who runs Better Mental Health Chiswick, is all for anything which will uplift the spirits, which the annual display of blossom definitely does.

Her main problem in organising such an enterprise is second guessing when the little darlings will bloom.

The Japanese themed street party will be either Sunday 19 or Sun 26 April, to be confirmed in February, once there’s a clearer idea of how the weather is affecting the buds.
