A NEW piece of public artwork was unveiled at the opening of the Central Plaza at Acton Gardens.

The site is Countryside Partnerships’ and L&Q’s regeneration of the former South Acton estate in partnership with Ealing Council.

Designed by former South Acton resident Adébayo Bolaji, The People’s Throne has been designed to represent the community, with the sculpture incorporating seven key values about Acton Gardens.

It is the focal point of the newly enhanced Central Plaza and was officially opened by Adébayo, alongside Cllr Peter Mason, leader of Ealing Council.

Central Plaza is a prominent new meeting point, with places to sit, play and exercise, including a children’s play area.

The People’s Throne sculpture incorporates a mural on the reverse, designed with help from the community and the youth centre, which Adé used to attend.
