Community & Partners

Community Heroes

The Community Plaque was established by the former Braintree Chamber of Trade and Commerce, in memory of members of the community who have given great service to our community:

Elwyn Bishop, David East, Peter Ellis, Ken Few, Scott Gilhooly, David Possee, Evelyn Roerig, Ann Rolls, Vernon Rolls, George Shiffner, Jean Stock, Iori Williams

A new plaque was unveiled at Braintree Community Centre on the 18th September 2021.

We are always seeking to identify other community minded people whose names should be included. We welcome suggestions from anyone for anybody that lived locally and made a strong contribution in the Braintree area. Anyone can be nominated by way of an explanation of their service to info@braintreecommunitycentre.org.uk with the only criteria being that inclusion depends on a posthumous nomination. A statement about the person and their photograph will be included on the website.

Details of the Community Heroes named on the plaque can be found here.
