A meeting of representatives of the three Eastcott residents groups – Kingshill, Back Garden and Queen’s Park – and Swindon Council yesterday agreed plans for green initiatives across Eastcott.
In the long term the three groups will survey their areas to identify existing planting – flowers, shrubs and trees – that need renewing and look at options for fresh planting.
In particular the the streets in the Clifton Street to Eastcott Hill area were felt possible candidates for new planting. One of the first steps in this case is to discuss options with residents, service providers and the Council before a draft plan is created.
In the short term the three Residents’ Groups will apply for a Jubilee Grant to bring more flowers in hanging baskets, window boxes and gardens to Eastcott as part of a ‘Blooming Eastcott’ celebration.
