EPPING FOREST DISTRICT COUNCIL CONSULTATION ON THE AIRFIELD - DEADLINE 17TH DECEMBER
Epping Forest District Council has started a three week consultation on proposals for employment intensification of the eastern side of the airfield. This WILL affect local residents, so it is vital you have your say about what is being proposed.

THE ANNUAL SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE
NORTH WEALD AIRFIELD MEMORIAL & DEBT OF HONOUR
In view of the recent Government Guidance regarding Social Distancing, I would advise that the Parish Council is unable to hold the Annual Wreath Laying Service this year.
Although there will be no formal service, Parish Councillors will be paying their respects on Remembrance Sunday by laying wreaths on behalf of many organisations. Residents are encouraged to “Remember from Home” this year, although anyone would be welcome to lay their own wreath on the day, should they so wish.
At the time of writing, the Parish Council has not received notification as to whether there will be a Wreath Laying Service at the Parish War Memorial in the grounds of St Andrews Church. We would ask that any enquiries regarding this event are made direct to the North Weald Branch of the Royal British Legion.
