From Tuesday 1st February 2022 The Village Cafe will hold a coffee morning in the Memorial Hall  at 9.30am. So there will be a coffee morning every Tuesday ( alternating with the Bowls & Social  Club).  Thursday afternoon tea will be stopped for the time being.  See Events Calendar.

Congratulations to Victoria Farrell and the Scouts for raising a magnificent £1,555 at the Christmas Market in November 2021. Between stall holders, entry fee, raffle tickets and the mulled wine a total of £1,555 was raised for village facilities and projects. This is an amazing amount so thank you to everyone who organised, took part and came on the day. 

Special thanks to all of the Scouts who took part standing outside in the awful weather selling mulled wine and putting tents and flooring away. 

The money raised  will be shared between the Village Hall committee and the ECA.


December 6th 2021 - It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our friend and ECA Trustee Barry Halliwell. Barry was a valued member of the ECA team and will be missed by us all.  Our sympathies go to Ruth,  Emma and the rest of the family.

December 2021 is the last magazine from the current editorial team but we are pleased that a new team is coming together to keep the magazine going. We will let them introduce themselves in their own time but a big thank you to everyone who has stepped forward and to all the other volunteers who keep the magazine going.

 Flower Show Society Plant Sale

We would like to thank you for supporting us by buying plants ‘from a distance’ in a very different way this year.

When we began taking our cuttings in the autumn and even when we were sowing our seeds in February, we could never have imagined how different our sale would need to be in 2020. It seems, however, that sales have surpassed all expectations and we are so grateful to all of you who now have our plants in your possession. 

The Tennis Courts & Bowling Green now have limited access - see Elsenham News for details  

ECA AGM 2021

This took place on zoom on Friday 26th March at 7.45 for 8pm start.

Everyone Elsenham resident Welcome.

Trustees & Village organisations:

Please inform our secretary, Moyra Jackson, if you are willing to continue in your current role or to represent your organisation for the next 12-month period.  

If you wish to join us  please email elsenhamca

and we will send you the zoom link.



The Memorial Hall is available for youth & excerise groups (in line with latest Governemnet guidance). 

A Toilet in the Hall is open so that the Youth Football Teams can resume their games

We will now take bookings (but in line with government guidance) for after 21st June 2021.


I have no doubt you will understand our actions and we do this with the best interest of our hall users at heart. It may also allow us to undertake some minor repairs that we have been unable to do when we were in the fortunate position of hall bookings being at full capacity.

We will advise the village as soon as there is any change to this or if there is any relevant information to share.
