Bell Meadow Day, August 27th 2017

Now in its 13th year this traditional country fair, which celebrates the best of rural life, has become a popular event in the Essex summer diary, offering entertainment for all the family; there really will be something for everyone to enjoy in a wonderful rural setting.

Daytime events from 12.30pm include demonstrations and stalls with traditional crafts, rural skills and ever popular activities including: Competition Tent, Pets Corner, Pony Rides, Children’s Entertainer, Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Refreshments and Homemade Cakes, Breads, Cookies , Sweets and Jam, a Burger Van, Hog Roast, Ice Cream, Hot Doughnuts and of course the Beer Tent and Prosecco Tent.

With live music throughout the day. Traditional games & stalls plus displays of traditional rural skills and crafts, agricultural machinery. Arena activities include Dog Display and Fly Fishing Demonstration plus family games and events. With live music on offer throughout the day, the entertainment will culminate in the evening with the amazing ‘Jupiter Ray’ who return to Woodham Walter by popular demand following their fantastic appearance last year.

Woodham Walter is a hidden gem of a village which boasts a traditional old-fashioned community feel. There is a primary school with about 100 children, 2 golf courses, a brand new holiday lodge park, 3 pubs plus the only surviving Elizabethan church in Essex built in 1563. The village is well worth a visit and on the day of the event, Sunday August Bank Holiday, Woodham Walter (just off the A414 between Danbury and Maldon) will be buzzing with excitement and atmosphere.

TK Therapies


Are you anxious, depressed, or struggling to function during the day?
Or, have you been through a traumatic experience that you cannot stop reliving…

There’s no need for these uncomfortable feelings to continue day in and day out. You can turn your life around. It isn’t difficult to do and it doesn’t require you to bare your soul to a stranger.

It works by learning techniques to manage your responses towards negative thoughts and feelings. And, by doing so, it empowers you to take control of your life. I can show you the techniques, all you need is a commitment to practice 10 – 15 minutes per day.

Don’t suffer any longer. Call me today, and let’s get started together.

Trudy has guided me with the mindfulness exercises and now I am able to deal with things more positively in my mind and go forward with more confidence. The exercises together with the Havening Therapy are not hard to do and I can fit these into my daily routine. My heartfelt thanks to Trudy for all her help and guidance”…Trev
