Five fascinating Heritage Winter Talks have been organised by Maldon District Council. Each talk is FREE OF CHARGE to the public, and will take place at the Friends Meeting House, Butt Lane, Maldon, CM9 7HD. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
Councillor Penny Channer, Chairman of Maldon District Council's Planning and Licensing Committee, says: "The popularity of these talks has grown exponentially in recent years and is testament to the interest people share in learning about our local heritage. It also helps that the talks are free of charge."
The Chairman of Maldon District Council, Councillor Frank Delderfield, will be supporting the Royal British Legion's campaign for a Two Minute Silence at 11am on Tuesday 11 November 2014.
To mark the start of the Two Minute Silence, maroons will be set off from the Hythe Quay, Maldon and the War Memorial, Burnham-on-Crouch. The Two Minute Silence will also be observed outside of the District Council Offices, Princes Road, Maldon.
The Chairman of the District Council will be marking the Two Minute Silence at the Hythe Quay, Maldon and the Vice Chairman of the District Council, Councillor Peter Elliott, will be at the War Memorial, Burnham-on-Crouch.
An 18 hole pirate themed adventure golf course complete with an indoor café facility is the latest attraction for Maldon's Promenade Park which was given the go ahead at the meeting of the Central Area Planning Committee on 22 October.
This proposal is an exciting opportunity for Promenade Park and like many of the changes introduced over the years it has been proven that bold decisions can bring positive benefits for visitors to the Town and wider economic benefits through the creation of local jobs.
October is here and Farleigh Hospice's clinical team is already planning who will be caring for patients and their families over the festive period. It also means that the time has arrived to launch this year's 'Light up a Life' appeal, which gives everyone, regardless of whether or not they have a link to the Hospice, a very personal way to remember lost loved ones and honour their memory this Christmas time.
Each light that shines out from the trees located in Chelmsford, Braintree, Witham, Boreham, Heybridge, Burnham-on-Crouch, Moulsham Lodge, Tollesbury, Southminster & South Woodham Ferrers, provides a bright and shining tribute to the people we've said goodbye to over the years. And by sponsoring the lights in memory of our loved ones and making a donation – we can all do our bit to help Farleigh Hospice carry on caring for local people affected by life limiting illnesses, both now and in the future.
