Sales of the Goldhanger in the Past book

From David Newman:

Sales of the book have gone really well, we have sold 170 copies and taken orders for another 30. As anticipated I was able to place a large order with the printers in early December which reduced the printing cost considerably and maximised the surplus to pass onto the Church and the Village Hall.

Orders still seem to be coming in, but it is now timely to report that we have been able to send cheques for £450 each to the Treasurer of St. Peter’s PCC and to the Treasurer of the Village Hall committee. We requested that the Church uses the funds for a local project such as the proposed sound system or heating project and that the Village Hall uses the funds for their planned VH improvements project.

The Maldon Tourist Information Centre has now offered to stock the book at their High St office, so it looks likely sales will continue.

Many thanks to everyone who has helped to make the project a success.

War Memorial WWI Commemoration

Goldhanger War MemorialWWI Commemoration 2014

Members of the History Group report that work on the war memorial is continuing and a stone plaque with names of the fallen will now be obtained and screwed to the side of the memorial.

It is planned to unveil the plaque and have some events around the weekend closest to Armistice day in November.

The group continues to raise funds and has received a number of donations for this work. While all money needed has now been raised, any further donations will be put to good use should anyone be kind enough to do so.
