Hooks Hall Pond has been given a new lease of life by the London Community Rehabilitation Company. 

The Eastbrookend’s Country Park area was overgrown and muddy which made parts of it impossible for people to walk through. 

It has been avoided by walkers and school groups ever since. 

Eastbrookend’s Park Rangers were awarded £2,000 from Tesco’s, Bags of Help scheme. 

New timber has been used to rebuild steps and create handrails for people to use, which also included new fencing. 

The London Community Rehabilitation Company spent four weeks working on the project and learnt new skills while doing it.

“Our parks are a vital part of our community here in Barking and Dagenham,” said Councillor, Saima Ashraf.

“This project brought to life by our Park Rangers and the London Community Rehabilitation Company, to revitalise this area of the park, is wonderful to hear about and cements what our borough represents.

“We are one borough; one community and we make sure no one is left behind.”

Community Ranger, Jerome Scorer, helped coordinate the project and Steve Finch supervised the London Community Rehabilitation Company, along with additional help from the Eastminster Riding School.
