Success at Hanwell Carnival despite the several downpours!

Our elderflower cordial was the most popular product by far! Selling 60 bottles, it’s a good job we made lots more this year as we will also be at Pitshanger Party in the Park on Sunday 26th June. And for those of you looking for our chutneys they will be on sale too – our WEN chilli chutney is always a great seller so come early to avoid disappointment.

Everyone’s favourite!




Do you want to know where you can buy elderflower cordial in West Ealing?

We are all working hard to make sure we have enough stock for Hanwell Carnival on 18th June at Elthorne Park.  We will be there from 11am setting up our stall until around 5pm.  Come early to make sure you get a bottle of our delicious elderflower cordial (£2.50). Why not stick with the elderflower theme and also buy some lemon and elderflower marmalade? (£3.00) We will also have a selection of other jams/jellies and chutneys to tempt you.

elderflower weekend and cordial making 14th/15th May 2011

A group of us are planning to pick several hundred elderflower heads on Saturday morning, May 14th – weather permitting. We might do a repeat ‘pick’ on Saturday morning, May 21st. We’ve found a location where they’re quite prolific, in the ‘fields’ beyond Elthorne Park, although you’d need wellies to wade through nettles in some places, and a crooked stick to pull down the high branches.

We’ll be following the recipe on here which we used last year to produce the cordial which went down very well at Hanwell Carnival and will will be selling again at this years Carnival on the 18th June, as well as Pitshanger Party in the Park on the 26th June.

Hanwell Carnival – Abundance!

We all had a great day on Saturday 19th June on our joint West Ealing Neighbours and WEN Abundance stall, although Abundance hogged most of the day! We had Elderflower Cordial, jams and chutneys to sell and we pretty much sold out of everything. The main focus was our fruit mapping exercise – building up locations in the public realm of fruit trees to plot on our google map on our website to be found at this location

I never knew there was so much fruit in Hanwell and most of it was at the back of Elthorne Park!

We also had a lot of individuals happy for us to pick excess fruit in their back gardens, so we will need to buy our picking equipment ready for the challenge come mid August onwards.

Hanwell Carnival Saturday 19th June – Elthorne Park

West Ealing Neighbours & West Ealing Abundance will be having a stall at Hanwell Carnival for the first time this year. We will be in the charity section selling lovely jams and chutneys and for the first year our delicious Elderflower Cordial! We are also carrying on with our mapping of fruit trees in the local area and looking for volunteers for our Abundance project.

The Carnival starts with a procession at 11am and the stalls will be open from around 11.30am. We will be there until 6pm.

Please come along and see what we are up to and buy our produce too!
