Thieves damage medieval door at St Margaret's
Lord makes return to the Manor








Local residents have been urged to add their voice to a campaign to improve broadband speeds in the area by taking part in an online survey.

More than 24m has been earmarked to deliver high-speed fibre broadband to homes and businesses in Essex and the Parish Council wants to ensure  Stanford Rivers and Toot Hill are not overlooked.
'Don't get behind on broadband' plea
The current Lord of the Manor of Stanford Rivers has paid a visit to the area following an official invite from the Parish Council.

Joel Goldman and his mother Alix Tystad attended a reception at Toot Hill Village Hall on September 12th where they were greeted by local councillors and members of the public.

 
There has been condemnation of vandalism to St Margaret's which police believe was caused during a burglary at the 900-year-old church in Stanford Rivers.

The thieves kicked in an interior oak door which is believed to be hundreds of years old and dating from medieval times. The door, like all of St Margaret's, is listed by English Heritage and will cost hundreds of pounds to reinstate it.
