Eastcote House Gardens
The builders left on Friday 12th June 2015. No more fencing. There are still some areas that need attention, the land drainage for one.
More good news is FEHG have now reached the £25K match funding required by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Our thanks go to all who have helped us raise this amount.
The £125K in volunteer hours is on schedule to be completed by 2018.
The Picnic was a great success, lots of stalls from community groups, charities and crafters, events and people, even the sun shone.
The Chairman can only highly praise all the FEHG volunteers who organized, delivered leaflets, made cakes, grew plants, set everything up and took it all down again and spent the whole day serving on stalls.
St. Lawrence Players, the Tai Chi group, High Note Singers, Classic cars and the Dog show all added to the fun.
Works to the garden walls was not complete until 1st May, which means the main planting season was missed. FEHG hope to have all the plants back in their correct places for next year.
The café should be open Monday 29th June, more information will be sent when known.
The 2015 dig will open Saturday 27th June 2015 until Sunday 12th July 2015. Digging will take place everyday except Mondays. The Mayor & Mayoress of Hillingdon will be visiting on the 12th July.
All members of the public are invited to join in. If crawling around in trenches is not your scene, there are always plenty of finds to be washed. If you would like to take part please contact Catherine at AOC. Catherine.email@example.com
