All Change in Blackmore

Starting with pub news, Blackmore has a new landlord at the Leather Bottle, which is undergoing extensive refurbishment.  Brentwood Borough Council has rejected a planning application to change The Bull to residential use.  The Post Office business is planned to move from its present building sometime soon on the retirement of the present postmistress.  Finally, at St Laurence Church Blackmore villagers will be welcoming the new Vicar, Revd. Samantha Brazier-Gibbs, at her induction on Tuesday 24 November.
