DID you know that Harlow Council are currently upgrading resident’s boilers? The EU insists on electric boilers for new builds; the government has announced its ambitious plans for zero carbon emissions and now the council has declared a climate emergency.
Dear Editor, The word on the ground is that we could have a General Election this year. Apparently it is to do with Brexit. You may have heard of it? Harlow Conservative Party and our Conservative MP may have had a few wobbles on the matter over the last three years but appear fairly wedded […]
EACH day is a new day. It’s a new beginning and it’s so clear. Whatever you did yesterday or you didn’t do doesn’t matter. Leave it there and forget it. Focus on today, because it’s the day that you only have now and you have to utilise it to the best.
AT around 12.45pm on Thursday July 19th, yet another vehicle collision occurred at the extremely dangerous junction of Momples Road with First Avenue.
LAST Friday night into Saturday morning I spent the night in London with some of my friends. This has got me thinking about how stunning a real friendship can be and how important it really is. Friends are extremely important, and friendship is a major part of our lives, especially for us young adults!
THE Irish Times has reported that Boris Johnson, who will probably be the next prime minister, may be having trouble with Irish names.
IT is good to hear that Essex County Council will not be closing any libraries in Harlow (and Essex).
Reasons Why It’s Important to Follow Your Dreams Everyone always says, “Follow your dreams!” But not everyone does it, because life interjects. I’m writing this blog because a month ago, I followed my dream to enter a marketing-based career, but there were factors that made me think twice, but I took the plunge but I’m […]
AS a member of The Labour Party and a member of Christians on the Left I would like to share the enclosed statement with you.
IN 2002 in a column written for the Daily Telegraph, Mr Johnson used two racial slurs to refer to African people. “Tony Blair would love touring the continent”, Johnson wrote, “because he will be greeted by ‘cheering crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies’ – a racist term for an African child – and “the tribal warriors will all break out in watermelon smiles to see the big white chief”.
HARLOW Council’s tenants and leaseholders living in flat blocks will shortly have to consider “bin cages” being installed outside their blocks possibly on much needed communal areas. Are they really needed?
By Robert Halfon This article was first published on the ConservativeHome website. Compassionate Conservatism courses through the veins of this Party. I know – I speak to colleagues and members every day. From educational attainment to lack of in-work progression. From family breakdown to fragile social care. From addiction to defunct housing. These concerns, and […]
DO people not realise this is the “vision”of the future according to West Essex CCG. That’s what the 3,500 patients who were thrown out of Osler House Surgery were told last year.
MAY I suggest you investigate the difficulty of getting appointments at Lister House Surgery, despite it being a new purpose built building aimed at providing advanced services to Great Parndon residents.
ONE of the pleasures of being the Leader of Harlow Council is being given the chance to visit some of the more secret, behind the scenes spaces, where so much of the work that makes Harlow such a special place to live, goes on.
I wish to thank you for your article about the Chris Williamson public meeting controversy: “Harlow Council leader responds to Tory questions of June 4”.
WE would like to thank Harlow Playhouse for allowing us to preview our Edinburgh and Camden fringe show, Backenders, at their iconic venue on Saturday 8th June.
Dear Editor, I am a disabled resident of Harlow and have lived here for 50 years. It used to be a town to be proud of. Sadly it’s fast becoming a dirty, run down and unsettling place. I rely on public transport due to my disabilities and over recent years the bus station has fallen […]
FOR the past few months working in education, I realised many things, but one really stood out. Every person whether they are young or old all have potential and have a unique set of talents.
“I want to thank those Harlow residents who voted Conservative on Thursday. The national context of these elections meant that it was always going to be an uphill challenge for the Conservative Party but the team in the East of England, led by Geoffrey Van Orden and John Flack, campaigned on a positive and local message.
I would like to send out my heartfelt thanks to everyone in Harlow who come out to vote Labour in last weeks election. It means even more considering the last minute nature of these elections.
DURING the last view weeks, I’ve been thinking about volunteering groups and what I felt makes volunteers want to volunteer.
MAY I thank all the people who voted for me and the support of my colleagues during the election period and throughout the year where we try and contact as many residents as possible.
LLl that you see above is probably what is needed to run a business but in my experience, I have seen this before but when I have seen similar operations, I am still pretty sure that the football team, the first eleven is at the very centre of the organisation, that what goes on between 3pm and 4.45pm is the very beating heart of what you do.
