n the last two weeks in June Essex County Council ran a consultation on their proposal to enlargement of Westerings School, doubling it from 210 to 420 pupils. Through social media and a leaflet drop we got as many objections as we could in the time available, even though they make this task as difficult as possible. The main objections from residents that live near the school are the current serious issue at dropoff and pick-up times. Parking over driveways and pavements in many local roads, but particularly in Sunny Road, speeding to and from the school and traffic jams at the two access points to the B1013. Without providing sufficient solutions to these issues we are unable to support any increase in the size of the school and have objected. Just to say I am actually against surveys and consultations as they are generally ignored. There were two RDC survey that ended in January one had 210 responses 0.3% of residents and the other only 16 responses 0.02% of residents, which is less than the half the 39 RDC councillors. How can they say this represents the views of residents and the cost of running and evaluating these surveys can no way be justified. Having said that we felt on this occasion it was necessary to object on the road issues. The Hockley Residents Association meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 8th August 2017 at 7.30 pm at Greensward Academy. The meetings are held in Room GG27 in the Creative Arts Block next to the main car park. Alan James

“Christine recently did all of the flowers for our wedding and they were absolutely amazing! She has been so helpful throughout the whole process, suggesting what colours and flowers would look best, and went above and beyond to make the venue look perfect on the day (which it did!). Thank you so much Chris, highly recommend you.” Nicole

“Thank you for my absolutely outstanding wedding flowers this weekend. All I had to do was give my mum a colour scheme, and you managed to tap into exactly the right style, shapes, sizes, and types of flowers that we wanted! They were absolutely perfect, arranged with so much care and thought. I adored my bridal bouquet of roses, lilies, berries and succulents, and my husband was delighted with his sempervivum buttonhole! Our guests were honoured to be given such delightful centrepieces as gifts - and such a clever idea that you pinned in some of the plants so they could be grown at home. We will have to find plenty of excuses to order from you in the future! Thank you again, you made my day complete.” Caroline

Bringing the outside in!

Our First homing show in Hockley

Venue: Hockley Community Hall, Westminster Drive, Hockley, SS5 4XD Every 4 to 6 weeks our branch has a homing show. We are delighted that on Sunday 20th August 17 we will be coming to the Hockley Community Centre in Westminster Drive and we will be there from 2pm until 4.30pm. There'll be cats at the show, all looking for a new home, and all in good health, microchipped, vaccinated and, dependent on their age, neutered. They also come covered by four weeks' Pet Plan Insurance (excess applies). You might be lucky enough to meet Loki, who has been in our care for some time now and is really hoping for a home this time

La Vallee Farm Shop

L

a Vallee Farm Shop your traditional butchers, ready to supply all your BBQ meats with tasty delicious homemade marinades some using the new ‘Gluten Free’ recipe. We specialise in homemade sausages, burgers, kebabs and a variety of low fat products. The farm shop prides itself in selling home produced beef and lamb plus locally sourced pork and poultry. As well as our meat products we stock a wide range of local produce such as fresh eggs, vegetables, homemade jams and mustards you just can’t beat the flavours! If you follow us on facebook then you will be kept up to date with our weekly special offers. See our advert on front cover.

aking full use of your home’s outdoor space is something people have been trying to do for a long time, patio doors or french doors have been the traditional answer, but now there is a better solution! With aluminium bi-fold doors you still get the massive absorption of light from the large glass panes, but you also get superior utility and versatility. You can open them inwards or outwards, partially or fully and when fully open the sections fold in on each other in a concertina fashion and square away to one side. The effect is a beautiful and breath-taking panoramic view, just imagine your home with stunning bi-fold doors extending your home into your garden! The security and integrity of the doors have been severely tested in a UKAS testing laboratory. During the tests the doors were hammered, rammed, pounded, pulled, pushed, lifted and crow barred by forces that equalled a 20 stone man trying to force entry. Our bi-fold doors can be factory sprayed or powder coated to accommodate all tastes. There are literally hundreds of colours to choose from. See our advert on front cover.

But you don't have to wait until the Show to offer a cat a home - we'd be delighted to hear from you today. Please contact Yvonne on 01268 750831 for more information and to arrange the Home Visit that will be needed before the cat is homed with you. Even if you are not ready to take on a new cat, why not come along and see how the Homing Show works? As well as many lovely cats and older kittens looking for homes, we'll also have tables selling a wide range of cat and dog goods plus Cats Protection gifts and novelty cat items, unique to the Branch, and that would make ideal presents. Please come along and support us

Prepare for the zombie apocalypse
