Village News and Events

in Boxted and Langham

Welcome to this week’s newsletter – giving you a reminder of some of the regular events taking place in Boxted and Langham. There’s quite a lot to look at this week, including a few events taking place in the coming weeks for you to put on your calendar. Please take some time to browse through and see if you can support any of the events taking place. Do you have any plants to donate to the plant stall at this year’s Summer Fete? Perhaps you have some almost-forgotten items in your loft you can donate to the church tower fund or maybe you’d like to spend an evening of lively discussion on a topic from the Bible over a pint at the Shepherd. Everyone is welcome – you don’t have to attend church. Dominic Shiels will select a passage from the Bible and open a discussion on its relevance in today’s society.

Saturday 8th June, 11am – 12 noon 

Boxted Village Hall car park, Cage Lane

The car park can get very congested when the freighter visits.  It  would be helpful if as many people as possible could use the overflow car park and walk their waste across to the freighter.
