Hopefully by now residents will be aware that their Ruislip Residents’ Association celebrates its centenary this year, making it one of the oldest residents’ associations in the country. To mark this milestone in our history we will be planting one hundred trees in and around Ruislip and Ruislip Manor. All our local schools have agreed to have a tree planted in their grounds to support our project.
Local businesses have been encouraged to sponsor a tree and some, including Waitrose, Patrick Graham and Ducks Hill Garden Centre, have either already donated or pledged money. Individual residents can also sponsor a tree. If you would like further information please contact our Secretary, Patricia Wardle, at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving us a message at Mail Boxes Etc. Box No 231 at 161 High Street, Ruislip
I am delighted to inform residents that the first of the Ruislip oak saplings was planted by the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor David Yarrow, in the grounds of Lady Bankes Junior School on Tuesday, December 17th. in the presence of our President, Brian Cowley, Vice President,Joan Davis and Chairman Graham Bartram. There will soon be a full report of the ceremony on the Education page of the website.
We hope to be able to create a living legacy and to enhance our local environment.
