EHS - Wisley Coach Trip


PLEASE REPLY TO This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.



The society celebrates its 70 year anniversary this year. We would like to mark this occasion with a special trip.

We are arranging a coach trip to RHS Wisley on 4th September.

The pick up will be from the car park in Oak Grove, behind the Trading Hut at 9.00 am. We will be returning to Eastcote at 6.00 pm. The trip is open to members, their families, friends, neighbours and other local society members. Please share this news with people you know.

Costs to cover the coach travel will be £12 each.

If you are not an RHS member the usual admission charge is £9.50 but as an affiliated society we have free entry for this trip. This is a good opportunity to explore Wisley if you haven't been for a while. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

All the family can enjoy the trip - children can be entertained with a family trail.

Each trail gives children things to spot, ideas of great places to explore and fun things to do in the garden. There are several cafes although you may wish to bring your own picnic. Wheelchair users are welcome - paths are well marked.

I would appreciate replies as soon as possible but by 30th June.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me at the following email address - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Yours sincerely

Sue Alexander

ERA holds successful open forum

Eastcote Residents' Association

EASTCOTE Residents' Association (ERA) held their second successful open forum with almost 100 people turning up to put questions to the committee members and councillors.

The association held their first open forum last year and because of its popularity decided to do it again last night (10) in St Lawrence Church Hall, Bridle Road, Eastcote.

The guest speakers were Jales Tippell, Bob Castelijn and David Knowles from transport and planning at Hillingdon Council.

Mr Castelijn spoke about the Mayor of London's draft Transport Strategy, which was released last month, and how it would affect Eastcote residents.

Then, for the first half of the open forum, people asked questions about transport issues in the area.

Parking of commercial vehicles in residential roads, the problems with bus stops in Southbourne Gardens, speeding in Cheney Street and safety and speeding in Field End Road were a few of the issues raised.

In the second half of the open forum, more general questions about Eastcote were put to the ward councillors.

Some of the queries were about the problems with dog droppings in the Boundary Road/Lowlands Road area, hedges growing over pathways, salaries of council directors, the expansion of RAF Northolt, Initial House and Eastcote Library.
