The Essex Wildlife Trust celebrated their 6oth anniversary at Bedfords Park summer fair on Saturday 24th of August.
On a hot and sunny day, many residents came out to enjoy the bank holiday weather and the stalls available at the park.
Local MP Andrew Rosindell and councillors Christine Vickery and Ray Best were there to participate in the summer fair fun day.
Mr Rosindell told the Havering Daily ‘What a wonderful day to celebrate 60 years of the Essex Wildlife Trust here in Bedfords Park in Havering-atte-Bower. A lovely day out with family and friends and the community coming together with the wildlife.
‘It’s great to celebrate all the hard work the Essex Wildlife Trust has done for our community particularly here at the Befords park visitor centre, that I came to the opening of, over ten years ago.
‘Bedfords park really is the jewel in the crown of Havering with all the wonderful views and the deer. Everyone works so hard to keep this park so well looked after and today we are here to celebrate all the work people have done over the years to make this such an amazing place. ‘
Councillor Christine Vickery told the Havering Daily, ‘As one of the local councillors I am privileged to be here and to celebrate the 60 years of the Essex Wildlife Trust.
‘They do a fantastic job in keeping our park and Havering so special. It is great to see the park full with families and children all enjoying this amazing day.’
