Cash boost for Cranham Nature Reserve
IMPROVEMENTS to Cranham Nature Reserve look set to be made later in the new year thanks to a huge cash injection.
The protected wildlife spot site, in Cranham Brickfields, is to receive a �50,000 grant from Veolia ES Cleanaway Havering Riverside Trust and a further �33,000 match funding from Havering Council.
The money will support works to install hardened pathways, gates, a pond dipping platform, as well as improving information facilities and enhancing wildlife habitats through ditch and pond management.
The project also aims to upgrade an easily accessible circular walk that takes in both Cranham Marsh and Cranham Brickfields.
This will include renewing footbridges, replacing sites with kissing gates, installing additional waymarkers and producing a new leaflet to advertise the walk.

Cllr Clarence Barrett (Cranham, RA) said: “With limited resources available across the board, these grants are vital in conserving and improving our natural environment. “These improvements will make the nature reserve more accessible to young and old alike while enhancing the overall attraction of this wonderful site.”
