Preview of May Dragon


This months Dragon contains a pull out directory of all our yearly advertising. The adverts in the Dragon enable us to distribute the magazine free of charge to all villagers. Compiling all of this is a big task, starting in January, and we are grateful to Sian Reynolds and Jan King for all their hard work filling the available space. Thanks also for the support of our advertisers, many of them returning year after year. Final thanks must go to Andy Hopkins who brings our printed copies back to the village.

The May magazine contains a transcript of the Annual Parish Meeting. Nick Baker has reported on the beautification of the village, the sale of the Blossoms Hill Farm land, planning issues and finance. All in all, the village is in good shape! 

We are at the polls again on 4th May, this time to elect Essex County Councilors; Petrina Lees urges us all to use our vote. Petrina also gives us some information about the proposed new Local Plan. It seems that a single settlement is again the preferred option and the Fairfield site is once more in the mix. 

After all these serious issues you might feel like doing something fun, the Tennis Club is holding it’s annual open day on Sunday 7th May. Everyone is welcome to go along and “have a go”. Otherwise why not go and sample some Rock ‘n’ Roll with The Daisy Chains at the Village Hall on Saturday 6th May? The event is in aid of Grove Cottage. If that all sounds a bit too energetic the Gardening Club is holding a plant sale at the Memorial Hall in Elsenham on Saturday 20th.

Carol Elson is next months editor, please send your submissions to her by 12th May, email: henhamdragon@hotmail.com
