Waltham Abbey on BBC Essex

BBC Radio Essex spent much of Monday evening (17th August 2020) celebrating Waltham Abbey. Cllr Dave Plummer was among the local residents, businesses and organisations who called in to speak to Helen Scott about our town.

One main theme which was brought up by most of the callers was the strength and support of Waltham Abbey’s amazing community.

Dave’s taken the audio from each chat to make it easier to listen to them.

NB: we’re sharing these clips to help spread the word about these Waltham Abbey businesses and organisations. Their inclusion here should not be taken to imply support for, or endorsement of, The Green Party our policies or people.
