Eastcote House Gardens has successfully fought off competition from 5 other short-listed projects in Hillingdon to scoop funding from the Chrysalis programme.
The programme, which offers financial support for eligible projects in the borough, enabled residents to vote on their favourite two projects to receive funding. Eastcote House Gardens stormed to victory with an incredible 1080 votes, almost double of second placed Sanctuary Close in Harefield. The victory also showed that Eastcote are leading the way in online communications in the borough, with a staggering 99% of the votes (1073) being made through the online voting system. Had Eastcote Library not been closed during refurbishments, the total number of votes received could have been much higher.
