Junior Parkrun, which was launched on 3 January 2016, runs every Sunday morning at 9am and is a specially designed distance of 2km for 4 – 14 year olds.
All 4 – 14 year olds are welcome to take part for free once they sign up online at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/maldonprom-juniors/.
Councillor Ron Pratt, Chairman of the District Council's Community Services Committee, said "Seventy-two excited children took part in the first Junior Parkrun and this was made all the more remarkable considering that 39 of them had not participated in an event like this before. All those who complete the course receive their own official time. The first participant completed this run in a staggering 7 minutes 38 seconds which was a tremendous achievement."
On Thursday 5 May 2016 voters in the Maldon District will go to the polls for the election of a Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Essex.
The Police and Crime Commissioner oversees the running of local police forces, including appointing the Chief Constable, setting the local budget and deciding what the priorities should be for the police in their area.
Lynda Elsegood, Electoral Management Officer for Maldon District Council, said: "Only people who are registered can take part in May's elections. People living in the Maldon District will need to register to make sure that they don't miss out on having their say on polling day.
Artists are invited to submit for the Burnham Art Trail, taking place from Saturday 25 June to Sunday 3 July 2016.
Now in its twelfth year, the Burnham Art Trail has developed into one of the most visited trails in Essex, with contemporary artworks displayed prominently throughout the town. Artist-led by an experienced team, the Trail is strongly supported by the local community, and offers the opportunity to be part of a vibrant arts event in a beautiful and historic coastal town.
What best describes Essex culture to you? Is it some of our buildings and architecture; our artwork and theatres; local street and contemporary social culture; or perhaps there is an iconic image you think sums up the county? Maybe it's a museum you have been to recently; maybe you've seen a local band play or maybe it's just something you've seen on your street? Whatever it is, the Essex Culture team's #InstaEssex campaign wants to capture it.
Essex County Council's Cultural Development team has partnered with Abellio Greater Anglia, Essex & South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership and Network Rail's London Liverpool Street Station to deliver #InstaEssex – a photography exhibition exploring culture across Essex.
