RAF Eastcote - Major Planning Success for Eastcote Residents

Eastcote Residents' Association have recently been campaigning alongside local residents  against further expansions to the housing development at RAF Eastcote (Pembroke Park).

On the 7th December, At the Hillingdon North planning meeting, the 3 planning applications for 15 additional houses/flats were firmly rejected by every Councillor, failing to win a single supporter for the proposals.

Our thanks go to the local residents whose coordinated efforts presented 5 petitions with large numbers of signatures on each petition and for their passionate presentations on the night to prevent these applications from being approved.

Well done residents of Eastcote!

Eastcote Christmas Market & Fair - A Massive Success

The crowds turned out in force for the 2010 Eastcote Christmas Market & Fair.

On what was a cold but bright day, thousands of people filled the streets of Eastcote to mark the annual Christmas celebrations. Eastcote played host to its biggest ever Christmas Market & Fair with over 100 stalls, along with fairground rides, a Christmas Tree Forest, Santa on his Sleigh and so much more besides.

The festivities began at 10am with a continental market offering a wealth of European cuisine, fashion and crafts. This was also supported by a local traders market who provided Christmas treats, hand-made cards, and food & wine samples amongst other things.

Live performances on the stage by the local Steel Band, Coteford Infants' fantastic rendition of Christmas Carols & Live Soul Music set the tone for the day and had people tapping their feet and dancing in the streets.
