St Teresa of the Child Jesus RC Church 109 Ashingdon Road Rochford SS4 1RF

S

hangri-La Cattery is a boarding cattery but also helps rescue and rehabilitate cats and Kittens for the RSPCA. We are urgently looking for a family to foster Denzel A caring fosterer can really turn a cat’s life around for the better. Being fostered makes a huge difference to the lives of these animals, keeping them safe and healthy until they are permanently adopted. “Hello I am Denzel, I am 8 years young (but to be honest I don’t look it at all) The lovely people here at Shangri-La Cattery are helping me to find a new home or a family to foster me. They are hoping to find the right home I need. I have recently been diagnosed as diabetic. I need to be injected with insulin twice a day, I don’t mind having it at all, I will need this for the rest of my life, if I am fostered the insulin will be provided for me. I am looking for someone to see past my age and see I have a lot to offer, I enjoy being fussed and love a good tickle under my chin! I also love a lap to sit on. My favourite thing to do is to curl up on a bed or cushion if there is one on offer and have a cat nap, I am not so much interested in playing with toys, (but at my age who can blame me) I would much prefer being a friendly, loving companion. Love Denzel xx” If you can offer me a home or a FOSTER home please contact Shangri-La Cattery 01702 232096 or Text 07830224068 See advert page 10.

e are a very friendly local choir who meet on Monday nights in the Hockley and Hawkwell Methodist Church, situated close to the centre of Hockley, on the Main Road. We rehearse from 7:45pm till 9:15pm. We are keen to recruit more local members and you will be made very welcome. There is no audition, if you ever thought you would like to sing, but were worried that you can’t sing or read music, don’t worry, please just come along for a free trial session. If you require further information our Chairman Mike Tribe is available on 07786 266399. We look forward to seeing you!

St Peter & St Paul is a beautiful historic church, where for nearly 800 years, people have found faith and been nurtured in faith. You will be assured of a very warm welcome among us. With our prayers and best wishes for a happy and peaceful 2018.

The Southend Area Ordinariate Mission

R

ochford District Council (RDC) have plans in the pipeline to build an additional 7,500 homes across our district. Large areas of green belt land have been submitted by land owners to build these homes on, as of course they can make far more money by selling it for housing. Some of you may believe building all these homes is a good idea, that we need additional affordable homes for our residents and their children in the future. Whatever your views on this, to build all these homes without better roads and local facilities, including the NHS, will be disastrous. You may have already noticed that our roads are getting more and more congested and that’s without the 600 new homes that they are now building in Rochford Town being fully occupied. Sewers are being overloaded and we are experiencing power cuts on a regular basis particularly in Hawkwell. A consultation on this subject was due to start in December and at the time of writing I don’t know what form this will take. I will say that, from past experience, surveys and consultations have had a poor response with numbers as low as 0.02% of our residents taking part. I am not blaming anyone as I also find them a pain to do. Alan James 01702 207297 Hawkwell Residents Association. hawkwell.org

Best Christmas Window Winners

Gardening Jobs for January Happy New Year! We hope you had an enjoyable Christmas.

A new year signals a new start and now is a great opportunity to get into good gardening habits. Here are a few things you should be doing at this time of year: • Mulch your Christmas tree. • Check ponds and bird baths have not frozen over. • Sharpen garden tools and check your lawnmower is in good working order. • Try to keep off the lawn, but if your grass has been growing over winter (which it will do if temperatures have been over 5 °C), you can give it a mow. Just don’t cut it too short and remember, never mow frosty or wet grass as you might damage the soil.
