Faces of The Village
Pauline Coverley, who has taken over as editor of the much valued St Mary and St Peter village newsletter which is delivered by volunteers to every household in Boxted and Langham.
Having retired from full time work Pauline retrained as a reflexologist which she practices part time. She enjoys Tai Chi and walking her Cocker Spaniel puppy round the village. Pauline volunteers at Langham Community shop and attributes her volunteering disposition down to being a Girl Guide in her youth!

The Annual General Meeting of the Boxted Village Hall Management Committee
will be held in the Village Hall at 7 pm on Wednesday 26 October, when the Treasurer’s report will be presented and plans for 2016-17 set forth.
The Village Hall is a significant and highly-valued amenity for the whole village and its management, maintenance and development are surely worthy of support. The Annual Meeting is an opportunity for people to learn of the challenges facing the Management Committee, to offer comment on any issues and to make suggestions for both immediate and long-term development. Even more, it is an opportunity to make a contribution by joining the Management Committee.
Takes place at Langham Recreation Ground Saturday 5 November.
Grand Firework Display, Torchlight Procession, Destiny Majorettes. Refreshments and bar. Information and tickets from Langham Community Shop, Bob Schofield (Tel. 272448) or David Winter (Tel. 322301).
Operation Christmas Child
Boxted and Langham churches and schools are participating in this appeal again this year and details of drop off points for the shoeboxes full of gifts will be in the November parish newsletter.
I’ve just seen that the new Lidl shop near to Kent Blaxill’s is selling the ‘Simulated TV’ I am always recommending people should think about using. These make it seem, from outside, that a TV is on when in reality no one is home. They are low energy, using the power of a night light and Lidl’s have them priced as £6.99, I don’t know how good they are but it’s worth a look.
