Public Survey on the Local Bus Network

From Essex Highways

As part of a Countywide review of the Essex bus network, we would like to get your views on how the local bus network could be improved.

An online public survey has been launched to get the view of bus users and non-users on the bus network. To make the information as relevant as possible, we are most interested in responses which relate to the districts in which the responder travels most often by bus or (if not) where the person travels most often within the county.

Please see the links below to the surveys for each district.

Thank you for your assistance and if you have any questions please contact: passenger.transport@essex.gov.uk

Kind Regards

Environmental Project – Thanks to all the volunteers!

This weekend 18 volunteers from Boreham and beyond planted 1,000 tree whips to create more than 200 metres of new hedgerow and other habitat to help biodiversity and combat climate change. This is part of a Boreham Parish Council environmental project and was supported by the Essex Forest Initiative. A big thank you to all  the volunteers who came out to plant trees. A special thank you too to local farmer David Bolton who did not hesitate to help when the lorry delivering our mulch got stuck in the mud. His tractor arrived within minutes and towed the lorry off the field. Brilliant!

Winners of the Scarecrow Trail 2021!

Thank you to all who made this year’s Scarecrow Trail so special, including everyone who built a scarecrow. We had such a variety and such great humour. Thanks also to the businesses who supported us with sponsorship, prizes and scarecrow trail map sales (the Post Office, Twills, The Six Bells, A G Smiths Butchers, The Queen’s Head, Spar, Chelmer Marquees and the Co-Op). And thanks to everyone who bought a map. The trail has raised just over £1,000 which will be spent on biodiversity projects around Boreham.

The votes for favourite scarecrow and favourite scarecrow name are in and this year’s winners (against stiff competition) are:

Best Scarecrow:

First: Recycled in a roundabout way

Second: Winnie the Witch

Third: Crops and Robbers

Best Name:

First: Alice in Pumpkinland
