Traffic Officers from Essex Police have been in the village this morning carrying out speed checks at various locations.

Comment on Facebook

Send them up to the fir trees (bus stop) opposite guildhall way, guaranteed results.

Hope this finally results in some anti-speeding measures in the village

The problem with this is that it’s Saturday not rush hour on a weekday morning/ afternoon when people are late for work and going at least 40 through the village where there is no footpath. it is a token gesture i feel

Send them down by The Bricks they will be busy .

Pippa Faithfull

She is in our garden at ‘Coppers’ and we’ve contained her in our summer house for the timebeing so if anyone knows her owner please get in touch so we can reunite her 🐓

It was behind ours in the field making friends with Rosemary’s chickens and ponies at 10.30am, but I can’t see it now.

Was it crossing the road?😂

Jade Stacey lol looks like 1 of your escapees! 🤣 X

Fiona Cains I was thinking this

Hope the driver was ok

The Parish Council would like to send their sincere thanks to all residents who turned out to help with the village litter pick yesterday.

There was a record turnout. In fact the turnout was so good that we ran out of equipment to give out..

What a good idea

Brilliant

Sadly, someone attempted to set fire to books in the Telephone Box at Steventon End. As you can see from the picture, (thankfully), damage was relatively light and the Parish Council are investigating having repairs carried out.

Please can we ask that residents keep an eye out for any suspicious activity and, if you have any relevant information, report this to the Police or Crimestoppers.

I honestly can’t imagine why anyone would do that! Thankfully our neighbour noticed and extinguished the fire before it got out of control!

And can someone sort out that hole in the road near the museum before someone, probably a biker has a serious accident!

To the owner who left this poo bag behind ( it’s been there over 2.5 hours ) presumably by mistake, please could you return and pick it up….

The location is on the map attached but it’s on the walk near Waltons..

Thank you…
