Have your say about the River Cray by completing our online questionnaire
We are seeking your
experience regarding the River Cray Catchment Plan.
The River Cray Catchment Improvement Group is currently developing the Cray catchment plan. This plan aims to improve and maintain a natural river for the benefit of both wildlife and people.
We want to hear your thoughts about your local stretch of the river - what you like about it, what you don't like, what would help you love it more, and finally what you can suggest be done to improve it. (Even if you don't live near to the river, we'd still like to hear from you if you have comments to make about it!)
Please help us by filling in this questionnaire, so together we can make the entire length of the River Cray a better place.
The Good Woods project will focus on reaching out to owners of under-‐managed woodlands, starting in the South East and East of England. The project will promote the benefits of woodland management planning; help to strengthen links between communities and woodlands; build forestry skills, and develop markets for woodland products.

or contact Mark Pritchard 01322 294727 to arrange a possible site visit to your woodland.
