ALTHOUGH the members and volunteers at Davy Down are mourning the loss of the chair of their charity, councillor Diana Hale, it was her expressed wish that they should “keep it all going” and this is the intention.
The Heritage Open Day will take place as usual on the second Sunday of the month, Sunday 8th September from 1pm to 5pm.
This is the one day of the year when Essex & Suffolk Water invite the public to see how the water from the Davy Down Well is filtered before entering the supply mains for use by many of the residents of Thurrock.
An additional attraction this year is a demonstration arranged by the Forestry Commission of the use of heavy horses in forestry work, especially for sites where the use of vehicles is unsuitable due to ground conditions or the proximity to people or wildlife.
There will be the other usual attractions of games and wildlife safaris with the warden. And its all free.
Bring your own picnic or have some light refreshments at our little cafe.
