Oates Cottages

(Outline only of the conditions - not a legal document)

One of oats cottages is available at an "intermediate" rent (lower than free market, but not as low as 'affordable' housing), or for part rent, part ownership.

The housing is only available to people in/with strong connections to Gestingthorpe (e.g. brought up in village) in need* of a 2 bedroomed house, or if there are no takers, from abutting rural parishes. (They need/should be registered with Braintree District Council)

 Full details are available from the Clerk or from BDC.

Parish Magazine

More Volunteers please!

The magazine will be free from February 2018 so we need a few more volunteers to deliver it in Gestingthorpe. I hope to re-arrange the rounds so that there are no excessive loads on any one person and nobody has to go far from their own home. Please contact me if you can help.  Thank you.
