Welcome to Shalford Essex

Contact Us | Councillors | Minutes | Local Planning | Site Map


 Shalford Parish Councillors are pleased to be able to offer this site for the community to use but wish it be known that any views expressed throughout the site are not necessarily views of members of Shalford Parish Council

 Shalford village is 5 miles North West of the country town of Braintree which has a direct rail link to London some 50 miles distant; we are within 15 miles of Stansted Airport

 We support a rural North Essex community of 750 residents, with a local village shop, public house and a thriving village primary school also used by surrounding villages.

 Shalford Village Hall and the large playing fields were donated in trust by Major Guy Gilbey Gold of adjacent Abbots Hall to Shalford residents in 1925 with a clock tower being added in 1945 in memory of his son Rodney Gold lost at Anzio in 1944

 Our small team of seven councillors administer financial support to various groups including our Parish Church of St Andrew’s, Village Hall, Parent Teacher Association at Shalford Primary School and where needed, to local organisations. We are affilated to Essex Association of Local Councils and Rural Coummunity Council of Essex

 On this site, you will find local news and contact details for all the community to use, together with Parish Council Councillors contact details, minutes and agendas, just use the left hand menu
