What’s that coming over the hill? Is it Save Our Langdon Hills

ON WEDNESDAY morning, the Save The Langdon Hills group will be coming down the hill, into the valley and campaigning outside the Civic Offices in Grays.

Save our Langdon Hills has told YT that they are appalled at the cuts planned for Langdon Hills which sits on the border of Corringham and Basildon.

The group believe that the beauty spot could end up unmanaged and be a target for fly-tipping and other forms of anti-social behaviour.

They are also concerned that the hugely popular, Santa in the Woods events, which attract well over a thousand visitors a year, has been cancelled.

A spokesperson said: "Thurrock Council have decided to leave Langdon Hills Country Park u​nmanaged,​cancelling events and planning to reduce maintenance at the site on the edge of Corringham.

"As part of a cost ­cutting exercise, the Council are removing a number of Ranger positions at the Country Park.The result will be health risks, anti­social behaviour and loss of habitats and wildlife."

The group aim to be outside the offices after 10am on Wednesday morning.
