Friends of Eastcote House Summer Picnic
The EHS was invited to take a stall at the Friends of Eastcote House Summer Picnic on Saturday 1 June 2024. Our plant stall looked stunning at the start of the event and proved very popular, with little stock left at the end of the afternoon. The event was well attended with activities going on throughout the day which included Morris Dancing, a live band, dog show and ferret racing. It was delightful to have the opportunity to be a part of a successful local community event.
