Children's Play Area - New surfacing.

Please note that the Children's Play Area will be closed from the 31st October 2016 for resurfacing work. The current plan is for the work to take 5 days but this is subject to weather conditions. Notices will be displayed in the Village and the small car park off Church Lane (opposite All Saints Close) will be closed for the duration of the work as contractors will be using it.

Village Bus Trips (AKA Bus Club).

The 2017 timetable is now available to view on notice boards in the village as well as the 2016 trip list. They are also available on this website under the "Village Bus" menu tab. These outings use a Brentwood Community Transport 14 seater bus for day trips from Doddinghurst to go locations such as Bluewater, Cambridge, The Company Shed West Mersea and many other venues. Seats are limited and the cost is kept low - see timetable for per person price - as the organisation is run on a not for profit basis and the drivers are fully trained but unpaid volunteers. The vehicles are disabled traveller friendly. The service starts and ends in the Doddinghurst Village Hall car park in Church Lane. Please contat the driver directly to book your trip(s) and the December visit to Bluewater is very popular so you need to do these early.

Audit Report for 2015-16.

A "clean sheet" auditors report has been received from the extenal auditor - see under the drop down menu labelled "Financials" for further details.
