Appeal for Raffle Prizes or Donations

The family of Stuart Blunden are hoping there are some generous local businesses or individuals who would like to donate a raffle prize for their raffle on 14th June. The raffle will be held at a Charity Football Tournament and Fun Day to be held in Stuart's memory at Sandon Sports and Social Club.

Stuart died suddenly at the age of 39 from a massive brain haemorrhage on 14th December, 2014. The family have decided to raise money for "Yo-Yo" at Farleigh (a children's bereavement service that is currently helping Stuart's children) and "Headfirst", which researches brain injuries.

If you would like to help, please email Stuart's widow, Claire, via this link or phone her on 07841 336626.

In Great Baddow, a village near Chelmsford in Essex, you will find a thriving business and local community with around 14,000 inhabitants. This website will enable you to keep up to date with recent news and forthcoming events in the village, as well as informing you about the regular events that take place and meeting dates for our clubs, societies and churches. There is also a collection of local information, including churches, library opening times, public transport and useful links, that we hope you will find er... useful and informative.

We also have a wide range of businesses, operating both from commercial premises and villagers' homes. To help you find them all, we maintain an index of businesses, organised by category, with addresses, phone numbers and links to websites where available. Some of our smaller businesses, such as the Vinyl Countdown, have individual webpages within this site to tell you what they do.

Great Baddow has a rich history and one of the highest concentrations of listed buildings in the country. We include a condensed version of the village history here, including historical houses and families, together with some pointers to other available resources if you are trying to trace family ancestors.

To add a dash of colour to the site, there is a gallery of photos provided by local residents, which we are always happy to add to if you'd like to send us copies of your own personal favourites - modern or ancient.

And finally, just in case, you can't find what you're looking for, we have a customised Google search of the site to help - it's located just above the "what's on" calendar on the right. .
