Church Services & Events Spring by Christine of Hockley Looking from the window, what do I see A garden full of popping bulbs and the early blossoms on a tree. The grass is greener now and not a muddy mess, A robin picks at seedling and fluffs out his ruby chest. The frosty mornings are over now, the pond will no longer be cold, A warmer dawn will be coming, and dull wet weather will be old. So look forward to the Spring mornings, when you wake to a warm misty haze, When love and care fills your garden, so you will enjoy better days.

ochford District Council (RDC) held a week long planning exhibition in the Hockley Library at the beginning of March. It stated on the RDC website that it was an exhibition of ‘’Our recently adopted Allocations Document sets out details of the sites to be developed across the district over the next fifteen years for housing, employment and other uses’’. In spite of this statement it did not include the Hockley Area Action Plan (HAAP). After visiting the exhibition I was left disappointed. It was just a few A3 pages stuck to a corner of the entrance hall that tells you nothing that anyone that has an interest in our area doesn’t already know. What was the point? A complete waste of time and effort! I hope they didn’t use council money to pay a consultant to set this up.

t was suggested to me that they were pulling down the units in Eldon Way behind the Hockley Co-op previously occupied by Ironmongery Direct. I spoke to the builders working on them and they assured me that they are being renovated and the asbestos roofs are being replaced. It appears they are going to a lot of effort and expense and that no one has let them know that these are some of the main buildings that RDC want to replace as part of the HAAP.
t the February Essex Police monthly Neighbourhood Action Panel (NAP) meeting we found that this January’s crime figures more than doubled from last year for Hockley where as Rochford’s were much the same, caused by theft from unlocked Alan James cars left on drives and house break-ins.

ASTRONOMY RESOURCE CENTRE Main Road, Hawkwell, SS5 4JH
upiter will still be blazing down from the southwest with the bright reddish starlike point of Mars rising rapidly in the east as darkness takes hold. It is around this time of year when the days are warming up but the upper atmosphere is still very cold where tiny ice crystals form and the combination of sunlight being refracted through them produces an effect known as Sundogs or Parhelia. When the Sun is around 20 to 30 degrees above the horizon (east or west) and conditions are right, patches of rainbow coloured light can appear at some distance either side of the Sun. These only last for a short while and can fluctuate in strength either individually or together before disappearing. Take care not to look directly at the Sun as you will damage your eyes. The Lyrid Meteor Shower takes place between 18th and 25th April reaching a maximum on the 22nd. If you would like to see the planets etc through a telescope, we hold free observing evenings. Call for details.
Shangri-La Boarding Cattery
hangri-La Cattery re-opened their doors to our feline friends in the summer of 2013, following a change of owner and an extensive refurbishment. Not only do they board cats privately, but they have also become a firm supporter of the RSPCA Essex South, Southend & District Branch since reopening. This branch of the RSPCA is run by a small group of volunteers, who dedicate their spare time to helping animals who have been subjected to cruelty or neglect. They are also a selffunded branch so the volunteers work hard throughout the year fundraising to raise money for vital medical and food bills, most recently they have been trying to raise funds for an incubator for new-born kittens who come into care without a mother. If you are thinking of getting a rescue cat or kitten, then why not come and meet some of the rescue cats at Shangri-La Cattery. As part of the re-homing process, RSPCA cats and kittens are vaccinated, neutered and micro chipped.

Local Info Local community supports Havens Hospices
n the 13th of April my partner and I will be running 26.2 miles in the London marathon, I have to admit the training has not been easy and if my feet could talk they would be shouting at me to stop, but it is all in a good cause and that is the only thing that is keeping me going. We are both running for Havens Hospices right here in Essex, a fantastic charity who take care of children and adults with life limiting diseases and supporting their families too. Of course we are trying to raise as much money as possible for Havens Hospices and I am writing this to thank some of the local businesses who have helped us with an event we held last month. I very cheekily asked the local shops for raffle prizes for our ladies day that we held at our house and because of their generosity we managed to raise £400. So a big thank you to Potters of Hockley, Blumeringue, Twinkle, CJ’s Bowling and the Shuhag Tandoori Restaurant for their kind donations. Our next event is a charity football match on the 25th May at Basildon football ground, kick off is at 2pm, with a number of ex pro’s playing against those who didn’t quite make it (sorry boys) Please come along and watch and helps us raise even more money for Havens hospices.
