Faces of The Village

Cheryl Damen

Cheryl and her husband Ton live on one of the smallholdings in Horkesley Road with their young family who attend the local primary school. The family moved to Boxted in 2004 to live the Good Life with their horses, chickens and vegetable patch.

Cheryl is a member of Boxted Parish Council and a great champion for local bridleways (because there is only one in Boxted!). She is also a Trustee for the Essex and Suffolk Rivers Trust and works 3 days a week in London.
