Royal British Legion seeking a new branch secretary

The secretary of the Eastcote Branch of the Royal British Legion resigned at the start of the year after many years of exemplary service.

We’re keen to recruit a replacement and wonder if you would be interested? It’s a fairly light touch role with a monthly committee meeting whose main role is ensuring we keep complaint with RBL rules. However there’s plenty of scope to go beyond that and get involved with wider branch work, fundraising and community engagement. Also looks good on a CV.

please get in touch if you might be interested

Some sad news

It is with very great sadness that we are letting you know that Lesley Crowcroft passed away earlier this week.

She had battled with ill health for a long time and most particularly in recent months.  She had had to endure so much but continued to work tirelessly for our community through her dedicated work for the Eastcote Conservation Panel and the Friends of Eastcote House Gardens.

For many years, as planning representative for ERA, I worked very closely with Lesley on local planning applications and other planning issues.  Her knowledge and support were invaluable to me, as was the friendship between us which grew over those years.

She will be so missed.
