Belfairs Woodland Centre Opening

We were delighted to accept the invitation from Essex Wildlife Trust and Southend Council to participate in the recent opening celebrations of the new woodland centre in Belfairs woods. We took along our 'roadshow' - comprising display boards, photograph albums, newsletters and various items of memorabilia for sale. 

Although the weather was dry the strong wind meant that we had great difficulty keeping everything in place, including the gazebo! Visitors were interested with the story of Endeavour including the part that oak from Belfairs woods had played in the restoration project.
BBC Springwatch presenter Martin Hughes-Games who opened the centre took the time to visit all the participants' stands and was keen to hear the story of Endeavour's historical and enduring importance to the community.
