Comments about Shenley Wood Village

I recently visited Shenley Wood village at the kind invitation of Nick Abbey of ExtraCare. As Councillor for the Loughton and Shenley ward I was delighted to be able to meet residents and see the beautiful gardens and the facilities on offer. I look forward to being able to meet more residents when fellow Councillor Matt Clifton and I visit to hold regular surgeries at the village.30/08/2014Zoe (none)reply
