Secondary Cause of Death

It is time to update villagers on the plans for the next production
with regard to ticket sales and information on the show itself.

This year there will be some changes to ticket sales due to the closure of the Post Office in Wethersfield. The Box Office will be situated at either the houses of John Pearce,

Charlotte Holliday or Geraldine Stuckley, this will be made clear by having a large ‘Box Office’ sign outside the relevant house on the day.

Tickets will also be available from the new Post Office facility in the Village Hall, the sign will be placed outside on the appropriate day.

Ticket prices will be £8 for adults (£7 concessions for over £65 or under 16). On the Saturday night we will have a Fish and Chip supper with tables. The ticket price will be £15 for the Saturday night including the fish and chip supper.

Tickets are due to be on sale in the next couple of weeks. John Pearce will be available for more information on tickets on 01371 851019 on

It is important that all members help to push the production and encourage friends family etc. to buy tickets, as without the main Post Office, exposure of the Play will be less than in previous years.

The Play itself as mentioned earlier is going well and is a comedy murder mystery, on the Friday and Saturday night ‘The last Drops’ will be playing their popular tunes to entertain the audience.

More information will follow soon.

Too good to throw away?

Too good to throw away?

Give your unwanted items a new home in your community.

Do you have items which are too good to throw away? It’s quick, easy and free to pass on your items and you may not even need to leave home.

In Essex we’re lucky to have many reuse organisations to choose from.

If you are having a clear out, there are lots of easy ways to pass items on to other people.

More and more of us are donating and purchasing items from reuse organisations meaning you are supporting local people and great local community causes while passing on your unwanted items. Many reuse organisations will even collect from your own home – no need to leave the house!

Local charity shops are always happy to accept good quality donations as this helps raise money for good causes.

Freegle is an online platform to help people give items for free in your local community. The types of items you can give and get on Freegle ranges from furniture, clothing and children’s toys to soil, rubble or even pre-loved garden ornaments. You can pass almost anything on using Freegle!

You can even sell good quality items through popular selling websites, or jumble sales and car boots. This is a great way to clear out the house and make a bit of money while doing so.

Passing on your old items is a hassle-free way of doing good in your community. Visit to find out more.

Future Library Services Consultation – drop in sessions



Based on feedback and experience so far, we are changing our approach to the information drop ins at libraries about the future library services consultation.


Instead of just one two- or four-hour slot, we are offering a week at each library during which people can drop in any time it is open to ask questions and find out what the strategy is about.  Once they’ve done so, if they want help to access the survey, library staff can provide it. 


We’re making the change because feedback so far has shown that people want to be able to drop in at times convenient to them, including weekends and evenings. In some locations lots of people want to find out about the consultation. In smaller libraries, this could pose a serious risk to health and safety if a lot of people arrive at once and mean that some people leave frustrated that their expectations haven’t been met.  The drop in sessions will be at the times when those libraries are normally open.   


We also want to ensure that people who might need help to access the information or the survey, have the time and space to do so; with a large number of people at once, this is difficult to do.


Please note that the purpose of the drop-ins is to provide information, not to gather feedback.  We are asking everybody to respond to the consultation via the survey, preferably online, as this is the most efficient and accurate way to ensure their views are recorded and heard.


The new drop-in times are now available at .


Please help us by sharing this new plan within your communities.

The Post Office service in Wethersfield Village Hall is now a permanent fixture!
