Seems like quite a while since I’ve put pen to paper (or what ever ghastly turn-of-phrase one uses nowadays) for this blog, so I thought I might remedy that on this cold and bright May Morning!
It appears that we might be coming to the end of the whole dreadful business of lockdowns and restrictions…so much so, in fact, that my second home at Marigolds has been opening up again on match days….

Above is a sign from the 40s that was found during works in the Northeast corner of the ground. It’s fabulous to be able to get outdoors once again, and to see old friends even in a ‘socially distanced’ kind of way.
One thing that has struck me over the past year or so has been the strength of the community during the entire pandemic period. The help for the vulnerable, the support for the elderly, the strict observance to mask wearing and the adherence to distancing has been quite amazing. At H&B we have always prided ourselves on being centre of the community but the shear resilience and fortitude of the community around Harlow and the Old Town has been quite touching.
Anyway – onwards and upwards and here’s to a wine and soda on the Pavilion steps, and a loooooong Summer!
If you are interested in moving into the Harlow area pleas get in touch.
