Jackie Parish is responsible for the Village Hall

I grew up in Ilford and first worked as a civil servant for the Inland Revenue, initially in the local Tax Office and then in the City.

I married and moved to Chelmsford; where my two sons were born; then re-locating to Earls Colne when my sons were 4 and 2 years old. They attended Earls Colne Primary School.

When my youngest son started school, I began a daily drive to College in Clacton and trained for 3 years  to become a teacher. I taught at several local Primary schools, over a period of about 35 year and retired a few years ago.

I am a keen gardener, love music, art, reading and the theatre and I am a member of the local drama group, Stane Street Players.

I developed an interest in local government and became an Earls Colne Parish Councillor several years ago. I have enjoyed it and have gained a huge insight  into local  politics and an understanding of the  amount of work it involves.
