Safeguarding and Vulnerable Persons from Rcce


Berden Choir is an enthusiastic group of singers, under the direction of Sue Williams. Although we meet mainly in the autumn and winter, to rehearse for the village carol service, we have also sung at weddings, Mothers’ Union/WI meetings and joined forces with the Drama Group for more light-hearted events. New singers are always welcome, and there are no formal auditions.

Parish News Magazine

Our Parish News covers the villages of Manuden and Berden, and is produced monthly. It is delivered to subscribers by a team of volunteers in each village.

The magazine features

  • Useful contacts for Clubs and local organisations
  • Church News and Services
  • Manuden News
  • News of interest to both Manuden & Berden, including events in neighbouring towns and villages and local information
  • Berden News giving “What’s On”, details of future social events, local interest articles and news, and often photos of various events in the village.
  • Advertising by local suppliers of a variety of goods and services – especially useful to those new to the area.

Drama Club

Joining Berden Drama Group is not a “full time” commitment, we perform sporadically when we have time and motivation to do so, usually inspired by finding a suitable play.  In the past we have performed everything from Midsummer Night’s Dream in the garden of Martin’s Green to murder mystery plays, plus pantos, evenings of one-act plays, and “plays for voices” which have the advantage of needing no scenery and much less rehearsal. Actors, stage crew, set designers and costume makers are always wanted.

Annual Croquet Tournament

We are keen to have more people joining in, especially as some of those who have played for years have left the village in the last few years. It is a game that is fun to learn and a good way to meet different people in the village.

For details contact, Mary and Andrew Nelson, Peter and Barbara Jester,  Richard and Liz Little or send an enquiry via this website.

T is for tea, talks, trips B is for Berden, what else  D is for discussions, debate, diversion
