A number of Village Projects were organised to celebrate the Millennium, as recorded in the annotated photo gallery below:
Finger posts were erected at Pond Corner and at Blacksmith's Corner to give directions to places of interest in the village
A clock was installed on the Community Centre
A Commemorative floor tablet was laid in the church. This was funded jointly by the Church and the Millennium Committee.
A time capsule was buried in the grounds of the Primary School by our Borough Councillor, Christopher Garnett, who was also Mayor of Colchester
Unfortunately this capsule was dug up and destroyed during building work at the School and a replacement capsule was built into the bricks of the War Memorial in 2007
The Committee worked with the W.I. to plan and build the W.I. Millennium Garden on the Recreation Ground. The W.I. and its helpers constructed the garden over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend in 2001
Job done at the end of the Spring Bank Holiday weekend!
The W.I. Millenium Garden won the Anglia in Bloom award in 2002
Langham's village website was established and thereafter maintained for nearly 20 years by Andrew Stacey until it received a design overhaul in 2019
Langham is a village and civil parish in the north east of Essex, England approximately 5 miles north of Colchester - close to junction 28 on the A12.
