HAINAULT FOREST COUNTRY PARK CENTENARY

24.07.2006

 

Rosindell, Andrew

That this House joins the people of Essex and the Woodland Trust in celebrating the centenary of the beautiful Hainault Forest Country Park, designated as a public open space on 21st July 1906, protecting the forest's future by the inspirational Edward North Buxton, who led a campaign with local people to ensure that the country park could be enjoyed by future generations; recognises the encouraging work led by the Woodland Trust in expanding the boundaries of Hainault Forest Country Park by 55 hectares to create what is to be known as Havering Forest, opened by the Rt. hon. Lord Carrington on Saturday 15th July; notes the important contribution this forest will have on improving the social and environmental quality of life for people residing within the London Boroughs of Havering and Redbridge; further notes the exceptional efforts and plans by The Woodland Trust to involve the local community and more specifically, school children in the area, in planting schemes over the 55 hectares; and looks forward to celebrating and benefiting from another 100 years of ancient woodland, rolling hills, sparkling waters and native wildlife in the east of London and Essex.
