Faces of The Village

Bradley Maxwell, who was co-opted to Boxted Parish Council at the January meeting.

Bradley and his family have lived in the village for three years and his two children attend Boxted school. Bradley, who is a project manager for a global energy firm, is a keen runner and is the coaching co-ordinator of Boxted Runners. He is also taking part in the British Legion pantomime.

Bradley loves the village and wants to help in any way he can.


A reminder for ticket holders that the pantomime takes place on Saturday 3 February following postponement from it’s earlier date due to illness of a main member of the cast.

Boxted Lodgers Football Club has received grant funding for a defibrillator which will be kept at the hub. A highly qualified fire officer is to come to the community hub and give instruction on using the defibrillator and resuscitation techniques.

The defib, talks to you as you use it so it is not frightening but in a highly charged life saving situation it is helpful if you have had some instruction before.

The bar will be open so it will also be a social night as well as a highly important instruction night on how to try and save somebody’s life. All welcome.
