On Thursday 26th November 2015 in the evening, Maldon will be holding a vintage Christmas event.
This year all the stops are being pulled out to give the residents of Maldon district and welcomed visitors a day to remember.
As well as the turning-on of the lights by the Town Mayor of Maldon, there will be a street market, choirs, music, hospitality hosted by the local shops, and competitions.
Maldon District Council is to present a flagpole to Maldon Cricket Club at Drapers Farm in Heybridge. The flagpole will celebrate the spectacular defeat of the Australian cricket team and the regaining of the Ashes by England who were led to victory by former local cricketer and club member, Alastair Cook. Once the flagpole is installed, Cook's first club will fly their flag on first team match days.
The flagpole is expected to sit in a small garden of remembrance dedicated to the memory of David Randall - in addition to being the triumphant Captain of the England cricket team, Alastair is also the Patron of the David Randall Foundation.
Maldon District Community Safety Partnership has successfully completed the Mill Lane Underpass Mural Project funded by Police and Crime Commissioner as part of a Community Safety initiative.
The project was supported by young people under youth offending programmes and involved repainting the underpass using artwork designed by Plume School students. The young people worked with a local graffiti artist from Brave Arts who guided them on how to professionally implement street art. Workshops were also run on the final day of the project allowing other local young residents to contribute to the project.
Spark the imagination of your young scientist with a fantastic, fun filled and unique introduction to Science at the Museum of Power between 24 and 28 August 2015.

The Mad Science Camps are fun, engaging and interactive with full trained, reliable and CRB checked 'Mad Scientists'. Your Mini-Mad Scientist will also receive a Mad Science take-home gift at the end of every day.
