Ploughing Match at Hawkwell Hall Farm

S

taff of the Co-op in Hockley presented the proceeds of the Quiz Night they ran a couple of months ago for the Hockley & Hawkwell 55+ Social Centre, amounting to £467, to the Committee, outside the store. This was a tremendous effort and everyone at the Social Centre is very grateful to them. It was a great evening and they all worked very hard to achieve such a success. This will go towards a new Minibus.

HRA Coach Trips The Hockley Residents Association social secretary organises great value coach trips including pick up points at various places between Rochford and Rayleigh: 17/09/2016 – Wiltshire Golden Triangle. 27/10/2016 – Royal Hospital Chelsea & Eltham Palace.

T

his Ploughing Match took place in 1998 but they still go on at different Parishes in Rochford Hundred each year. Before the mechanical age came in the ploughmen would be seen with their horses in every field in the village steadily drawing the ploughs up and down the fields, the men making sure their horses were going ‘as straight as a die.’ It must have been a difficult job in pouring rain, with slippery mud which stuck to their boots. Fred Wright was a ploughman and when it rained he put a sack over his shoulders and newspaper in his boots! That is really true. The custom grew up of having a competition each year to find the best man and his horses. As you can see in the picture the plough is digging a furrow with the man bending over the plough to keep it straight, and the line shows where the previous furrow was dug. Margaret Chambers - Local History Recorder for Hawkwell. Hockley Living

The parish church of St Peter & St Paul has stood as an abiding sign of God’s presence in the village for nearly eight centuries. It is a beautiful building, rich in history. But it is no mere monument to times past; our church is home to a living community of faith. Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday at 10 am, and every Wednesday at 9.30 am. A warm welcome awaits you. And if you would like to discuss a wedding or a baptism, or you would simply like to know more about our church’s life and the faith we share, we would be pleased to hear from you.

Southend Ordinariate Mission Important News

We are now based at St Peter’s, Eastwood, Leigh on Sea., both Clergy and people. We would anticipate that most of the group will join the Sunday 10.15am Sung Mass congregation although the masses at 8.30am and 6pm are of course open to our people as well! There will be a weekly Ordinariate Mass at 7.30pm on a Tuesday evening at St. Peter’s and we shall play a fully integrated part in the parish life, in a liturgical, educational, social and practical way: most importantly we shall gather with a large group of the faithful every Sunday. Some of the group are already attending Eastwood regularly so it will be good to be together again! We should like to thank the people of St John Fisher for allowing us to use the Church these past 9/10 months. Please do get in touch if you would like to ask me anything regarding this permanent move. With every blessing, Your Pastor and friend Fr. Jeff Woolnough.

s you know the last bank in Hockley, the Spa Road branch of Barclays, closed on the 9th of October 2015 even after one of the Hockley Residents Association members Shirley James made considerable efforts to stop it. Now NatWest in Rochford, used by many Hawkwell residents, has closed as of the 14th July 2016. The Rochford Barclays only opens 4 days a week at the moment but unless they get a lot more business from ex-NatWest customers it’s doubtful they will increase their opening days. It’s probably just a matter of time before Rochford Barclays goes the same way as Hockley’s did. At least most of our banking can now be done at any Post Office. * You can pay cash and cheques in for 96% of UK banks with a ‘paying in’ slip free of charge. * You can withdraw cash using a debit card up to a daily limit pre agreed with your bank - most are set at £300 a day but this may be increased. * You can pay most bills in a post office, including utilities, telephone bills for free except £3.02 charge for water bills. Best to check for any charges before paying. * The Post Office ATMs can be used for all UK banks, to draw pensions and benefits. Some ATMs are external and available 24/7. The Post Offices also supply the following services: Mail, Drop & Go, Parcel Force Express Services, Foreign Currency, Travel Insurance, National Express Tickets, Savings Accounts, Lotto Tickets and Lotto Prize Payments. In larger Post Offices they also have Passport Check and Send and you can pay your Vehicle Road Tax. My thanks to Hawkwell Residents Association committee member Nick Astdon who runs the Hawkwell Parade Post Office for supplying this Post Office information.

A

n Orangery, Living Room or Garden Room from Seemore Glass will give you more living space and feel like an integral part of your home. The Living Room uses the well proven Classic Glazed Roof at its heart and then adds an engineered framing system internally which is plastered to give a perimeter ceiling all the way round. This can then be used to install down lights for that special touch, creating something that is neither conservatory or extension. It combines all the benefits of the former in terms of light and then fuses this with the solidity and feel of an extension. A conservatory is still a very desirable product, but Seemore Glass

are aware that a number of homeowners are seeking something more - a Garden Room. Just like the Living Room, a Garden Room can create a very comfortable and usable living space due to superior insulation and sound absorbing qualities. Call Seemore Glass on 01702 205853 or see their advert on page 1 The views expressed in Hockley Living are not necessarily those of the publisher.

After the Brexit Vote - What Next?

O

n 23rd June our country participated in a historic vote over our future relationship with the European Union. On a high turnout of 72% (higher than the last General Election in 2015) the people of the UK voted to leave the European Union rather than to remain. The majority for leaving was in excess of a million. Locally, there was very high participation in the poll, with a bumper turnout across the Rochford District Council area of 79%. The UK voted by 52% to 48% overall to leave but locally the result was more pronounced, with Leave beating Remain by 67% to 33%. So now that the decision in principle has been taken, what are the next steps regarding the EU? The EU treaties have a mechanism for any country that wants to leave the EU, which is known as “Article 50.” This is triggered by the state that wishes to leave, formally notifying the EU of their wish to do so. Once this has been done, the Article then allows up to two years to complete negotiations between the EU and the leaving state on their future relationship, covering issues such as trade and the future movement of people. I regretted David Cameron’s decision to stand down as Prime Minister, as I think he has been a good PM who has generally led the country well, in often difficult circumstances. However, it will now be up to the new Government, led by our new Prime Minister, Theresa May, to decide when to formally trigger Article 50. In summary, the British people have given the Government and Parliament a clear instruction that they want us to leave the EU. This will no doubt involve some tough negotiations, but the key principle now is that after a national referendum on the subject the will of the British people must be respected. Rt Hon Mark Francois Member of Parliament for Rayleigh and Wickford

e recently had a trip to Spain from Southend Airport. The airport has a lot going for it but there are still a few annoying issues that seem to be being ignored. First there is no proper drop off lay-by, people even stop on the non standard zebra crossing from the station to unload passengers. When you get to the bag drop there are not enough seats to wait for the desks to open, not so good for the older generation. But the worse thing is that when they are loading the plane they get you to stand out in the rain and cold for about 30 minutes before you board in an unenclosed walkway. If you pay extra for speedy boarding you are out there even longer. I have flown from many airports all over the world and I have never come across this type of treatment on airport customers, it actually put me off flying from Southend. I noticed a number of passengers in shorts and tee shirts ready for the Spanish sun and shivering for half an hour in the English cold. I wonder if the people that run the airport ever travel like their passengers to get the full traveller experience? They probably get VIP treatment, not like their second class customers. Alan James
