St Mary’s Church is now a Food Bank Agency for Bishops Stortford and Buntingford Food Banks - Charity Number 154800. There is a huge need for help and support for some in our communities and according to the Buntingford Foodbank, numbers in need have doubled in the last 3 months and Food Bank boxes can be delivered to anyone in our villages.

Please respect our village environment and enjoy your visit.

It is evidenced that some visitors to our village, vehicles passing through and cyclists, do not respect our environment. Some vehicle drivers litter our paths and hedgerows, some cyclists discard punctured inner tubes - on the spot fine of £150.  The residents of Braughing are particularly insistent that visitors and passers by respect the place where we live and will photograph and report offenders.
