A BIG thank you to everyone who squirelled away tokens and saved them for this worthy cause. It's your Village Hall after all.

Getting here and being here
The 95 bus runs between Tollesbury and Maldon and back again. In Goldhanger there are bus stops in Head Street, Church Street, and the village square. Buses don't run that often, so best check the timetable otherwise you'll be left standing.
SatNav will often take you to Church Street in Tollesbury or in Maldon (yes, they each have one - it's happened before). It gives the locals something to laugh about. You're probably better off resorting to FlatNav - - or you can find a helpful map here.
We're tidal here you know, which means a lot of water goes in and out of the estuary ... twice a day mostly. The tide timetable will help keep you safe as well as tell you when the water's up for a good photo opportunity.
There are no car parks in Goldhanger. Please don't park like a twat when you get here. We have a bus through the village and it needs room to pass and to stop. Be considerate of the people who live here and don't park in the bus stop or on junctions.
