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.

ST PETER & ST PAUL: “On the edge of the village; At the heart of the community.” St Peter & St Paul church, Church Road, Hockley SS5 6AE Parish Priest: Father Ken Havey (01702) 203668 www.stpeterandstpaulhockley.org or find us on Facebook

We would be pleased to be part of your special day. We offer the Common Worship Marriage Service but add personal touches important to you both. Within the church Wedding Service you have the opportunity to begin your new life together on the good foundation of inviting God in Jesus Christ into your relationship. Traditional Vows:

‘I take you to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health. To love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow.’ Rector: Rev Peter Smith Church Office: 01702543514

The Hockley members of the Southend Ordinariate Mission

extend a warm welcome to those interested in the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Hawkwell School

Comedy and Curry Night with Tom Elliott Saturday 16th September Bramerton Road Community Church, Hockley Tickets - including food ~ £15 Tickets - without food ~ £10 An amazing evening of fun and laughter

T

here must be many people living in Hawkwell or Hockley who do not know of the whereabouts of the original Village School. If you are coming from Hockley, down the Main Road to Hawkwell, look to the right at the Zebra crossing. Right there was the school which was demolished in the 1980’s. It was built on land given by the Lord of the Manor of Clements – it cost £300 to build. The Lord of the Manor stipulated that if it ever ceased to be used for educational purposes it was to be demolished and proceeds of the sale given to his descendants. After looking into all kinds of ways of using the school by different organizations no one seemed to want it so, sadly, it had to go. The Westerings took its place and, in view of the increase of traffic through Hockley and the increase of children, in the end it was probably the safest thing. Margaret Chambers - Local History Recorder for Hawkwell. 6

All entries have to be about Essex and the People, Places and events that are and happen in Essex. If a painting/photograph or craft is entered, that has nothing to do with the Essex then it will be displayed but not entered into the competition. The Committee of Management will make the decision on who is entered into the competition and who is only displayed. So do not enter a stock picture you have done in the past. There is no limit on the size of the Oil, Acrylic and other Canvases this year but if you enter a big picture please provide your own stand.

This money will go to our chosen charity for the day, which is the Thursday Art Group at the Old Fire Station. Children can either draw or paint their own picture but if they are only colouring we can provide a set colouring sheet for them to use. Their pictures should be no bigger than A4. CHILDRENS ENTRIES ARE FREE. All entries need to handed in by 14th October to 43 Oak Walk, Hockley, Essex, SS5 5AR and collected on the day or arranged for collection from the Secretaries house. The prizes will presented in Cheque form or gift card no cash is given. Runners up prizes will be items of art or craft equipment.

Rayleigh Recycling Centre

R

ayleigh Recycling Centre in Castle Road is controlled by Essex County Council and they have now made some vehicle and site restrictions changes. We believe that some of these restrictions are the reason we are getting a massive increase in fly tipping. You can draw your own conclusions by reading the following information taken from their website: 24/7/09 9:07 am Page 1 “Vans, pick-ups and other commercial-type vehicles – including those privately owned - are not allowed to use this site. Customers attempting to park prohibited vehicles outside the site and carry waste in will be turned away. Rayleigh recycling centre only accepts the following amounts of DIY waste: • In any 28-day period you may not exceed three wheelbarrow loads (one car boot) of soil, hardcore or gypsum-based products including plasterboard and dry wall lining • In any six-month period you may not exceed three large ceramic items (e.g. toilet or wash basin), one uPVC or wooden window frame, one uPVC or wooden door, three wooden internal doors or any elements of a built-in kitchen Your nearest recycling centre that accepts vans and limited DIY waste is Pitsea. What you cannot bring to recycling centres: Asbestos, chemicals and other toxic substances, clinical waste, dead animals, fireworks, ammunition and explosives, fuel, hazardous waste, Japanese knotweed, landlord’s waste, pesticides, poisons and trade or commercial waste”.

Year Round Extra Living Space!

A

conservatory offers you a fantastic extension to your living space, making it more spacious and Seemore Glass offer a range of quality conservatories to suit your needs and budget. Consisting of a strong base, insulated floors and walls, double-glazed windows and strong, steel-reinforced structure, your conservatory will offer a room with natural light useable throughout the year. An 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, creating something that is neither conservatory nor extension. It combines all the benefits of a conservatory in terms of light and then fuses this with the solidity and feel of an extension.

You can have fun on the rifle and pistol range or book an Axe or Knife throwing experience . Fun filled memories for Dad and the family at reasonable prices. For more information call us on 01702 202318. See advert page 13
