FREE Virtual Street Market on Saturday 25th July! 

We're pleased to announce we will be hosting our next virtual street market on Saturday 25th July as a way of supporting our local traders and businesses during these tough times. 

Anyone can take part for FREE in the comfort of your own home by joining our exclusive Facebook group.

Get ready for exclusive discounts, free deliveries in the local area, and find out what's on offer that you can buy from our traders, whether that's food delivered straight to your door, gifts for your loved ones, tasty treats & more. 

If you are interested in buying something from a trader, this will be between you and the seller so you will need to contact them direct. 

We want our communities to thrive, so this is an opportunity to support each other - providing things people need, supporting passionate and dedicated independent businesses, keeping it all local.

The only way the event can be successful is by you engaging with our traders on the day, so please...

Join the group, say hi to our traders, post positive feedback and help us support our locals!

The Marks Hall Estate Cycle Path Project

Marks Hall Estate is proposing to create approximately 8.2km of all-weather cycle path which will link the communities of Coggeshall and Earls Colne and provide a new recreational activity for visitors to the Estate. 

And they're asking for your help...

Their project questionnaire will enable them to collect valuable data around the potential use of the new cycle path. It should only take around 5-10 minutes to complete, and as a thank you for taking part in the survey you will be entered into a prize draw to win a £30 gift voucher to be used in the Marks Hall Estate café.
