Faces of The Village

James Collitt

James was co-opted to the parish council in April. Married with two young children, one starting Boxted school next September, James and his family moved to Boxted a year ago and really enjoy the peaceful village life. They especially like the walks in the countryside, the village playing field and the Community Hub. James was happy to join the parish council as he wants to support the village in any way he can.
