Shalford Parish Council

Welcome to Shalford Community in Essex

Our village is in a rural agricultural area in North West County of Essex 5 miles from the country town of Braintree which has a direct rail link to London some 50 miles distance and within 15 miles of Stanstead Airport

Community of 750 residents with a mixed range of 350 properties mostly private but a few recent affordable housing

Luckily we still have a thriving Village Shop, Village Hall, Parish Church , Public House, also Shalford Primary School which is also used by surrounding villages.

Shalford Parish Councillors are pleased to be able to offer this site for the community to use but wish it be known that any views expressed throughout the site are not necessarily views of members of Shalford Parish Council

Our small team of seven councillors administer financial support to various groups including our Parish Church of St Andrew’s, Village Hall, Parent Teacher Association at Shalford Primary School and, where needed, to local organisations. We are affiliated to Essex Association of Local Councils and Rural Community Council of Essex
