A new oak shelter was opened at Old Park Meadow Natural Burial Ground on Wednesday, September 6.

The team was joined by their volunteer gardening club and members of the Essex Wildlife Trust, who all shared lunch and conversation.

Karen Dixon from the Essex Wildlife Trust cut the ceremonial ribbon to a round of applause - officially opening the shelter for the public to use.


Delyse Jackaman, manager of Old Park Meadow, said: "We wanted to build something for our visitors where they could sit and relax or chat whilst taking in the beautiful views and nature of Old Park Meadow.

"Thank you to everyone who has supported this build and attended the opening."
