Your local news and magazine articles have moved to new pages. You can still find previous news articles here and magazine articles here.

Explore the links for all your local information, events, and the latest village news. Find out how to get here, what the tide's doing (what it's done for countless millenia I suppose), and what the weather may or not be like when you visit.

Take a look at Goldhanger's lovely little Parish Magazine while you're here. It's delivered free to everyone in Goldhanger and is also available for download in glorious technicolour around the middle of each month.

Social Farming Day Placements for Adults with Learning Disabilities. Lauriston Farm. Launch Event Monday 10th September 2pm. Read more here.

They also offer Co-Worker Day Placements for Adults with Learning Disabilities. You can try a free Taster Day to allow you to see if you like what they do and whether you feel comfortable in the farm environment.

The Village Hall needs you. Goldhanger Village Hall Committee needs volunteers to help with organising, planning and helping out at events throughout the year, as well as the regular maintenance working parties to keep the hall ship-shape and looking her best. Read more here.

Getting here and being here

The 95 bus runs between Tollesbury and Maldon and back again. In Goldhanger there are bus stops in Head Street, Church Street, and the village square. Buses don't run that often, so best check the timetable otherwise you'll be left standing.

SatNav will often take you to Church Street in Tollesbury or in Maldon (yes, they each have one - it's happened before). It gives the locals something to laugh about. You're probably better off resorting to FlatNav - - or you can find a helpful map here.

We're tidal here you know, which means a lot of water goes in and out of the estuary ... twice a day mostly. The tide timetable will help keep you safe as well as tell you when the water's up for a good photo opportunity.

There are no car parks in Goldhanger. Please don't park like a twat when you get here. We have a bus through the village and it needs room to pass and to stop. Be considerate of people who live here - we're not a show village.
