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.

A lovely afternoon was had by all on Saturday 18th Sept who came to the village get-together on a balmy late summer day. It was so good to see everyone chatting and meeting newer residents.
The old patio behind the village hall has now been lifted and the new one will be laid over the next couple of weeks. With outdoor sockets being installed and a new awning thanks to a grant from RCCE, the patio will be a great place for an autumn party from the beginning of November.
