I moved to Laindon in 2010.
I grew up in Brentwood and also lived in Braintree throughout my early teens.
Whilst living in Braintree I experienced the successful regeneration of the town with the building of Braintree Freeport, renovation of the parks and re-energising of local schools in the area.
I’ve been part of Love Laindon for the past year and our focus has so far been around the shopping centre and war memorial. We’re in the process of applying for funding to hopefully be able to clear the shrubbery away and create a flower bed with the intention of being able to have a memorial service there to mark the centenary.
I’m hoping to come on one of your walks/memory days and hope we can maintain the links and respect for the past whilst also progressing and creating a prosperous future for the young generations who are living and growing up in the Laindon Park area.
