Stay at Home, Grow Your Own

To support the wellbeing of Maldon District residents, Maldon District Council and Abberton Rural Training (ART) are working in partnership to bring a new community initiative to encourage residents to ‘Stay At Home, Grow Your Own’.  There are a limited number of free starter kits available to get people growing their own at home, we would like these to go to Key Workers, individuals or families with financial difficulty, and/or individuals with a physical or mental impairment, or a health condition.  To see if you qualify for a free starter kit  visit www.maldon.gov.uk/growyourownpack.


Cemetery Burial Charges Reduced

Maldon District Council has taken the decision to reduce the cost of burials in its cemeteries for District residents, from the current cost of £1583 to £898. It hopes that this reduction will also ease the financial burden on families at this most difficult time.  This is in recognition of the extraordinary times that we are living in and that we are currently unable to deliver funeral services as we would have liked, due to having to comply with government guidelines for social distancing. 


Support Local businesses during COVID-19

Cllr Adrian Fluker, Leader of Maldon District Council, said; “It is important that we are supporting Maldon District businesses through this difficult time.  Maldon District Council and our partners are supporting a number of initiatives designed to ensure businesses are kept informed and safe, and support those working or staying at home.  Together we have developed the initiatives detailed below, and we will be providing more information on these in the coming days through our social media channels @MaldonDC and our website.

The Essex Map is a great resource normally used for community initiatives and with their agreement, we have adapted it to support those businesses staying open.

New COVID19 - Advice for Businesses webpage  maldon.gov.uk/covid19business we have tried to compile the best information out there for businesses.
