Air Quality Brentford has been very active in the local community in recent months but the environmental action groups needs more people to come forward to help out.

In its recent newsletter it outlines some its latest initiatives including the planting of a hedge by the A4. This project was one of the first ideas of the group when it was created in 2016 and the following year it started discussions with TfL about placing more greenery along the residential part of the A4 next to Middlesex Court and Glenhurst Road. Following many meetings and discussions the hedge has now been planted as part of the campaign to #MakeBrentfordGreener.

A spokesperson for the group said, “We want to thank TfL for all their support with this project and we look forward to seeing the hedge grow and for it to help mitigate traffic noise and pollution along this busy stretch of road.

• The Co-op have raised £219.62 towards the group’s planting projects already as part of their community funding. Air Quality Brentford has been selected for community funding until November 2022. You can sign up with the Co-op to ensure that some of your shopping spend goes back into local improvements undertaken by the group.

AQB also needs people to assist with watering any of it planting projects over these dry months. Let it know if you can help particularly with the planters along the High Street especially.

You can find out more about Air Quality Brentford on its web site.

Air Quality Brentford (AQB) is a voluntary group of local Brentford residents helping to improve air quality and can be found on Facebook, Twitter @agreenerlondon.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
