Eldon Way

I

am pleased to see that Eldon Way Industrial Estate continues to be used for business. OC Motor Repairs of Sheffield is the latest business to move onto the estate and provide additional employment for our area. They now occupy units 27, 28 and 29, the location of the proposal of flats and shops that was turned down by Rochford District Council. The units have been knocked into one and refurbished to a high standard inside and out. This means that approximately 50% of the estate has now been refurbished, pointing to a bright future for the area.

Time Out

ife is hectic, so pause and take a short break! Some friendly conversation, discussions, speakers, craft, music, quizzes, tea & Cakes. Where: Ashingdon Elim Church, 535 Ashingdon Rd.

Osteopath Zone Comes to Hockley

Meeting at St. Mary’s Parish Church, Rectory Road, Hawkwell st Mon 1 July & Mon 5th Aug 1:30pm – 3:30pm And the first Monday of each month. Everyone is welcome.

M

atthew Voigts has over 30 years clinical experience as an osteopath and has been working in Thorpe Bay and Harley Street. He is the pioneer in the UK of a revolutionary treatment for the upper neck called Atlas Zone and a body treatment called Vibrozone. He recently moved to Hockley and is looking forward to receiving patients from the Hockley area at his home. Murrells Hall is an old Hockley House off Church Road and provides a peaceful location with ample car parking. As an incentive he is offering a £10 reduction in his fee for the first consultation and treatment on production of his advert on page 5.

Mark Francois MP leads delegation to defend local libraries

R

ayleigh and Wickford MP Mark Francois recently led a delegation of local councillors and community campaigners to County Hall in Chelmsford for a meeting with County Councillor Susan Barker, the Cabinet Member for Customer, Communities, Culture and Corporate to discuss the future of libraries in Essex and in particular Hockley Library and Hullbridge Library in Mark’s constituency. The meeting included what diplomats would call a ‘free and frank exchange of views’ about the need to keep both libraries open. Not just, however, as educational facilities but as vital community hubs, for everything from Mums and Toddlers groups to the U3A. County Councillor Barker told the delegation that no decisions have yet been taken and that a paper by Essex County Council’s Cabinet on what to do next regarding libraries is now due to be published around mid-July. Mark has been a long standing advocate of the campaigns to keep both Libraries open, having recently attended a book sale at Hullbridge Library to boost much needed funds for the campaign. Speaking after the meeting, Mark Francois MP said: “Everyone at the meeting made their points in their own way, sometimes, quite passionately, so I hope between all of us, we managed to convey the very strong feelings in both communities about this issue. I concluded by asking County Councillor Barker to reconsider the whole policy, as I didn’t think the relatively modest sums of money that would have been saved from closing the libraries in Essex would be worth the distress it has caused local residents. I will be following up this meeting by writing to CC Barker to reiterate some of the points that were made. I will subsequently publish this letter on my facebook page, so that my constituents can see for themselves what I have done. I would like to thank all those who attended the delegation.”
