I remember the good old days……. So what did the lady say to the primary school children when she was asked to speak of changes in the village?

Teachers notes: Blackmore is just outside Brentwood in Essex. It is in the Green Belt and as such its growth is constrained and infilling is taking place. Some of the shop units have disappeared but the village has a relatively new supermarket with a good stock of low order goods and it is open long hours. The village has lost some services but retains bus links (hourly) with Brentwood and the petrol station and garage repairs. It has a historic church – and also a modern Baptist chapel. The village has two greens, one with two impressive duck ponds. It is a commuter settlement and house prices reflect the location. Blackmore is a very typical village. Please feel free to use these slides in any way you feel appropriate and re-arrange as helpful. Paul Routledge
