Hempstead is a small historic village situated seven miles east of Saffron Walden in the north-west corner of Essex. The notorious highwayman Dick Turpin was born in the village public house. William Harvey, the man who discovered the circulation of blood in the human body, and Sir Eliab Harvey, Captain of the Temeraire at the battle of Trafalgar, are interred with many members of their family in the Church crypt.

From Russ Wide:
Calling all Hempstead pensioners. This has certainly been a strange and worrying year for all. But especially our local pensioners. Who in many cases have had to forego their weekly visits from the grandchildren etc. And learn new tricks such as Zoom. There have been no events in the village hall really and no pub.
To that end the Hempstead Village Hall committee have decided to do something different this year in a attempt to spread a little Christmas cheer to you all. On Sunday the 20th Dec we will be cooking up a full roast dinner with all the trimmings to deliver to our pensioner stalwarts within the village. It will be totally free of charge and it will be delivered at around 12:30 to your door. Numbers are limited to those that live in Hempstead only. So, if you would like an early Christmas roast then please let us know by the 12th December so that we know how much to get in.
We just need your name and address and how many dinners you would like. Also, if you have any specific dietary requirements let us know and we’ll do are best to accommodate them. Obviously we will be following all of the latest guidance from the government regarding coronavirus precautions to ensure all deliveries are safe.
