It has been triggered by the sad news last month of the passing of Councillor Tej Ram Bagha, ward councillor for Dormers Wells and a former mayor of Ealing.
Councillor Bagha was first elected as a councillor in 1994 and became the 50th mayor of Ealing in 2014. He lived in the borough for more than 50 years.
