Goldhanger and its Links with the Great War

Maldon History Group

Last night (11/11/14) Mark, the Deputy Mayor, and I were guests at Maldon Rotary, where I gave a presentation on the Great War. It was the culmination of a series of events connected with this year’s Remembrance.

Remembrance Sunday 2014

On Sunday (9/11/14) Maldon Remembered. Townspeople and visitors alike gathered at our War Memorial outside All Saints Church. Along with some of the other Town Councillors, our MP, County Councillor and Chair of the District Council, we processed from the Moot Hall with the Deputy Mayor carrying the mace.

The Centenary of the Commencement of the Great War

So here we are now in the thick of the Remembrance period, made especially poignant as it is the centenary of the commencement of the Great War. Christine and I have been to a number of events which I will report on this blog shortly.

In the meantime, like many thousands of other people, we went to see the Poppies at The Tower recently.

High Sheriff’s Justice Service for the County of Essex

On the 6/10/14 I attended the Community Policing meeting and the Environment Committee – both were most productive. Then on the 9/10/14 I was pleased to support the good work of Home Start (Maldon) at their AGM.

Maldon Court Extension, Costermongers’ Harvest Festival & More

On the 25th September I helped judge a children’s picture competition at the Library – not an easy task because of the excellent quality of the work. The next day (26th) I assisted at the launch of the town’s new Adult Learning Facility, opened the Maldon Art Trail and visited a model village at the Museum of Power.
