What could you do to improve life in the ECCO area in 2020?  At our AGM people suggested projects such as

  • incentivising people to turn their front garden spaces into gardens again
  • holding a Big Lunch in Leslie Grove
  • using Alpha Road for a play street

If you are interested in taking any of these ideas forward, or have ideas of your own, ECCO can help with advice on fundraising, publicity and attracting volunteers.  Contact us on
