Harold Wood Polyclinic: directions

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 9 February, 2014

Last week, a resident asked for my help following a rather non-helpful response from the NHS helpline!!! In a nutshell, she just wanted more specific directions but they couldn’t give them to her – which is really great if you are walking.  Anyway, having found myself down there myself on Friday following someone barging into […]

Tory Priorities: All wrong and housing waiting lists suffer

I didn’t expect this to come home to roost quite so quickly. Tonight, although not a member of the panel, I popped (for two hours) along […]

Fabulous turn out at the Brentwood Sport Relief Mile at Brentwood County High School this afternoon!  I actually got a medal too!  I hear that around 500 people took part – walking, running or jogging as was right for them…that’s the beauty of a big event like this! I was there to do a mile […]

Shared streets disaster

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 6 August, 2011

I have never been a fan of “our wonderful new High Street” as regular readers of this blog will know! One issue that came up a lot was the “shared” streets philosophy which means that there is little difference between the pavement and road. Visually impaired residents have complained about this, saying that it simply […]
