A TOPPING out ceremony has been held at Acton Gardens to celebrate the completion of a new community hub.

Ealing Council leader Julian Bell and representatives from developers Countryside and L&Q oversaw the last concrete being poured into the main structure.

It is a significant milestone in the £600m regeneration of the South Acton Estate.

The Acton Gardens hub, which is expected to open in autumn 2020, will contain a new doctor’s surgery and a children’s nursery as well as 160 new homes.

It will support residents with essential services while contributing to the community spirit of the area.

A new community centre, youth club, supermarket, dental surgery and neighbourhood office are already open.
