A Beautiful Historic Essex Village on the Blackwater Estuary


Help Ukraine

The situation in Ukraine is appalling, but so is the UK government's response to refugees.

Priti Patel’s New Immigration Proposals, the sham consultation that followed, and now the introduction of the anti-refugee Bill send a different message: refugees and those seeking asylum will be dealt with firmer, with no hopes of being treated any more fairly.

A public donation point has been organised at St Mary the Virgin Church (St Mary's Lane, Maldon, CM9 5JB). Donations will be accepted each Tuesday (11am - 12pm) and Friday/Saturday (10am - 12pm). Anything is appreciated

We are a friendly and energetic community in the heart of Essex. The village lies on the north bank of the Blackwater Estuary, between Heybridge and Tollesbury.

We have a refurbished Village Hall, two pubs, a photogenic church, and some beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside and along the sea-wall.
