Hillingdon Hospital Rebuild

Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have published an outline for the rebuild of Hillingdon Hospital on the existing site at Pield Heath Road.

The scheme can be found here.  According to the site the plan will be to offer a continuity of services at Hillingdon whilst the building work goes on.

We are pleased to see the long-overdue investment in Hillingdon Hospital.

The trust expects to submit planning permission requests in Autumn 2021 with a response expected in Spring 2022 so this finished project will be some years off.

 

 

 

 

July Quarterly Meeting Postponed Until October

With the government set to delay the easing of all social restrictions for a further four weeks we have decided as a committee to delay the SRRA quarterly meeting until October.

This means the cancellation of the meeting on 28th July 2021. The next scheduled meeting of the SRRA is 27th October 2021.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you then.

Stay safe!

Elevenses -an online conversation group at South Ruislip and Ruislip Manor Libraries

 Jane at South Ruislip Library wrote to let us know about a new group at the library….

We have been running for 4 weeks now and have a regular group of 3/4 people attending  with a new member joining us this morning.   We would love to have more people attend.

It’s called Elevenses and it is an hour of conversation, often with a guest speaker.  So far we have had someone from the Covid Lateral Flow testing  centre explain about how that works, we have discussed poetry, the new library refurbishment at South Ruislip, book covers and blurbs and also had a tour of some highlights of the National Gallery.  The members enjoyed the latter so much that the blue badge guide is going to come back soon to show us some more.

This week we have a session on wellbeing – coping with stress, meditation etc.  We ask members if they have any subjects they would like to cover and we are reaching out to different guest speakers so we can cover a variety of topics.

When the library is allowed to have groups in we hope to carry on with these sessions in reality, not just online.

If anyone wants to join they just need to email us and we will send them to a link.

HS2 : Near the track, can you claim for ground settlement?

We were speaking to Lottie Jones from who has campaigned on the issue of HS2 for some time.  And Lottie made an interesting point that we wanted to share with you…

There are properties in South Ruislip that are eligible for settlement deeds. ( it’s taken 6 years of fighting to make sure residents above tunnels benefit from this deed agreement with HS2Ltd)
However of 273 properties in Ruislip only 36 have responded and the window for applying is closing soon.
We don’t believe that everyone who is eligible has been contacted and we want to ensure everyone has an opportunity to obtain deeds.
HS2Lt’s information and how to apply
Maps of properties that are eligible
The HS2 help desk is the first port of call
Unfortunately, we have residents who have been given the wrong information or haven’t had their enquiries followed up so if anyone needs any help or advice please ask them to contact us either through me on this email or our resident support group Facebook Page.
