Name a much-loved Brentwood woodland

A Brentwood councillor has set a challenge for local residents to name a much-loved area of woodland.

Cllr Julie Morrissey has been working with local residents alongside Newham and Brentwood Council officers for the past eight months to improve the area of woodland that runs alongside the border of the East Ham and Three Arch estates in Brentwood south.

Cllr Morrissey has secured work to be carried out by Newham Council in the area and has asked local residents to take ownership of the wooded space by organising a “Name Our Wood” competition for local families to enter.

She said: “This is a very important and popular space in the area and we want to make sure it is well looked after in the future following years of neglect.

“The work to be carried out will be sympathetic to the natural environment and we would like residents to name the area and make it their own.”

Cllr Morrissey will use some of her ward budget to fund a wooden name post to be situated at the entrance to the wood.

The work is due to be carried out in January 2013.
