BRAMERTON ROAD COMMUNITY CHURCH
visited the Coe Family, and friends, in May 2000, to record their memories of Hawkwell in their younger days. One of their stories was about the Bicycle Speedway. It used to be opposite Rawal Pindi Nursery on the corner but then they were moved by the Council and had to go up Mount Bovers Lane on the left hand side. Vic Baldry made electric gates for them. They competed with others – there was a League and they won cups and all sorts of things. They used to meet in Mrs Sargant’s house and she used to be ‘thrown out’ every Thursday night because they had their meetings there, the whole garden was full of bikes. Mr Cole, the Rector of Hawkwell, made a fuss about the Bicycle Speedway because it took children away from Sunday School. He laid down the law and they had to try and work it so the children could go to Sunday School as well as the Speedway. Les Speller, Dave Randall, Don Thornton, Nobb Sargant, Brian Sargant ? Hugh Trim, Jimmy Smith, Stan Bradley, Les Griggs ? ?

Autumn/Winter Lawn Treatment from GreenThumb
he autumn and winter climate will eventually slow or stop the grass growing, so this micronutrient treatment is different in that it doesn't encourage growth. Instead, it's designed to stimulate chlorophyll activity for a stronger, more robust lawn that's better able to cope with the rigours of winter. The treatment dehydrates any moss that may have built up, helping to control it by slowing down its activity. By keeping the moss spores to a low level, it also prepares your lawn for any mechanical work. As growth slows down, the combination of Nitrogen, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and/or Phosphorous is no longer necessary. Now we need Iron to support the development of chlorophyll, promoting a greener colour, strengthening the grass and also aiding recovery after any mechanical work. Iron also helps to dry out moss by scorching The first step to a it so it can’t absorb moisture. This process beautiful lawn is to breaks down the plant structure which call GreenThumb enables moss to be removed from the lawn and allows the sward to develop in the spring.

M Hawkwell Buses
rriva seem to be allowing the number 8 bus route that runs through Hawkwell to gradually deteriorate with the new time table published on the 23rd July 2017. This is the service that serves Clements Hall Leisure Centre and now 176 homes at Clements Gate and 36 homes at Highwell Gardens plus other smaller new developments. Weekdays there is only one service in the morning and one in the evening that goes through to Rayleigh and only one service at lunch time that comes back from Rayleigh, meaning a change to the number 7 bus at Hockley for all other journey times. The number 8 also stops in early evening meaning the only way to get to and from an evening session at Clements Hall is by private car or a taxi. There are rumours that some number 8 services could be rerouted through Hall Road to pick up at the new Cherry Orchard Way Saxon Business Park and the new 600 home development in Rochford. This could only be bad news for Hawkwell, leaving Rectory Road including Clements Gate, St Mary’s Church and Clements Hall with a very limited service or even worse, none at all.

Infrastructure Hawkwell Residents Association. hawkwell.org
ave you experienced power cuts recently? We are often getting them in Hawkwell and have just had three in two days. This is the second day I have had to shave in the dark and my power shower not working. I am fed-up resetting clocks, timers, alarms, the sky box and getting the computer to work again. If I had an electric car, that they say we will all be driving in the future, I would also be hanging around waiting for it to charge up. I believe this will only get worse without the necessary infrastructure required for the more than 200 additional homes built and being built in our area. What’s next? reduced water and gas pressure, overflowing sewers and drains and of course traffic jams getting even worse than they already are now.
