Church Services, Events & Local Info Harvest Days It had been a long hot summer and already farmers were reaping their crops. Working long hours from dawn till night. Fields of gold, dotted with scarlet Poppies what a beautiful sight. Small rabbits playing hide and seek between bales of sweet smelling hay. After an early mist, the sun was warm and mellow, a perfect Autumn Day. Walking lazily down a country lane intent with my thoughts I passed small orchards, trees laden with fruit. I heard the gentle plop of an overripe apple as it fell to the ground. Wasps were flying everywhere making a loud buzzing sound. Soon young fruit pickers will be busy filling baskets to overflowing with apples and plums, others will be gently stripping grape vines, storing wine in vintage drums. Yes Harvest is a time of great activity where farmers reap what they sow, seeing the fruits of their labour from the rich brown earth. Perhaps we too can become workers of the Harvest as we remember Jesus words. “The Harvest is great but the workers are few”. By Iris Jean Thomson

Top Cats is also pleased to support the work of Cats Protection providing a safe, loving environment for cats in their care whilst awaiting rehoming. Set in beautiful surroundings and run with efficiency and commitment to provide the best care and attention, Top Cats offers its customers, new and old, a very warm welcome and a place to leave their cats with confidence.

A lawn for all seasons with Grassed Up

A

s most of us think ahead to packing up our gardens for the winter for fear of damaging the lawn or bringing mud back in to the house, just looking out of the window at it daydreaming about next Spring when we can spend our weekends keeping it under control, there are a few who are able to enjoy it all year round without wasting time trying to keep it looking nice. Those with the new Grassed Up artificial grass get twelve months enjoyment out of their garden with no mud at all. The pets and children love playing outside without getting into trouble for damaging the lawn or their muddy foot prints. See advert on P3

Rochford’s Last Bank To Close

Bullwood Hall Development

T

wo years ago Harrow Estates prepared a planning application for residential development of 55 homes on the former Bullwood Hall Prison site. As part of the process of preparing an application, Harrow Estates held a public exhibition on the proposals, which provided local people with the opportunity to view the initial master plan and speak to members of the development team. At short notice, the Sanctuary Group have held a similar public exhibition, as they have purchased Bullwood Hall Estate from the original developers. There was not much detail supplied but the main issue is that they plan to build an addition 20 properties on this site. As you are probably aware, the access has been improved from the B1013 but there are no plans to improve the rest of the existing narrow road to the new estate. I am sure the local residents would be pleased to get this area sorted out, as at the moment it’s a mess and attracts squatters. Alan James

e lost our last bank, Barclays in Hockley, two years ago and now, as predicted last year when Natwest closed, the Rochford Barclays is set to close in October. Just to remind you that 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.

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. Alan James 01702 207297
