AFTER a break of a number of years Finchingfield is to host its own village charity ball.

The owners of The Stables, Spains Hall, one of Essex's premier wedding and function venues, have waived their usual hire charge in support and all the proceeds will go to the CREAMER Fund, Finchingfield Primary School PTA, the Pre-School and Finchingfield Cricket Club.
The Red Lion in Finchingfield has agreed to sponsor the event and the Broadcast's sister magazine Essex Life will be covering the event for inclusion in a forthcoming edition.
