Official Launch Party for Restored Gardens
CHGT and English Heritage hosted a garden party to thank those involved in the restoration of the gardens and to celebrate their opening.
Rupert Hambro, Chairman of Chiswick House and Gardens Trust and Baroness Kay Andrews Chair of English Heritage hosted a garden party on 17th June 2010 to thank many of those involved in the restoration of the gardens and to celebrate their opening.
Speeches were given by Rupert Hambro, Baroness Andrews, Councillor Jagdish Sharma Leader of London Borough of Hounslow who own the gardens and Dame Jenny Abramsky Chair of Heritage Lottery Fund, which made a major grant award of £7.9million towards the £12.1 million project. Guests then toured the gardens including the newly re-opened Conservatory and Italian Garden.
Guests included Cllr Colin Ellar, Mayor of London Borough of Hounslow, benefactors, designers and contractors who worked on the restoration, officers of the Council, English Heritage commissioners and staff, volunteer representatives, special advisors and others who have been closely involved with this ambitious programme of landscape and building conservation works.
