Maulden Parish Council Election 2015

Parish Council Elections

Many of you will not think of your Parish Council from one month to the next, but they are incredibly important to the village and how it runs and how it will develop.

If You Go Down To The Woods? Fungi!

It is the end of the season of fungi in our local woods, and you may have missed a few of our more spectacular fungal examples.  Maulden is on acid sands and shares its distinctive flora with places like Dorset. Have  look down as you walk and see what fungi you can still see.
