DID you know that by setting a target, such as a marathon or bike ride, has helped a quarter (25%) of people get fitter in the past?
JUST a quick thought if you ever have the unpleasant task of dealing with Essex Police or Essex social services on child sexual exploitation issues. Hopefully, “pragmatism” will not be their watchword as it was in Manchester 15 years ago.
LIFE can be hard, we all know that. It doesn’t matter if you come from a lavish lifestyle or if you come from a poorer background, or anywhere in between, life is life and it has its ups and downs. That’s why I always tell people to smile, it’s free and it can make you feel good, as well as other people around you.
Police call for tougher penalties after police officer has leg broken after Harlow man deliberately rammed her car
BEDFORDSHIRE Police bosses have called for tougher sentences for attacks on police officers after the case of one PC was shown on a television documentary this week.
WE all know by now that fast fashion is bad for the environment as well as our wallets so the RSPCA is encouraging people to shop second hand to save the planet, help us rescue more animals and save some pennies this January.
NSPCC Fundraising Manager for Essex Sarah Laffling discusses the benefits of volunteering for the charity’s Speak Out, Stay Safe service.
I WAS interested, if not a little frustrated, to read the comments made by Roger Hirst, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) for Essex, on YourHarlow 6/1/20. This seems a very similar story.
IT has been a few days since the New Year and most people are back into their normal routine.
BISHOP Stephen has played a part in the Heart4Harlow Easter “Walk with the Cross”, regularly included Harlow in his walking pilgrimages across the Chelmsford Diocese, and developed a strong friendship with St Stephen’s Church, he recently spoke to local people there about the motivation behind some of his varied books.
FOR most of us Christmas is a time to spend with our families and loved ones but for many this isn’t an option. So I say to all the fire officers, nurses, police officers, paramedic and many others again thank you so much for what you do to keep us safe and healthy all year around but particularly over the festive period.
I UNDERSTAND that on social media at least one Conservative councillor is calling the Harlow Alliance Party “liars” when it comes to the response we have given to the government-appointed inspector and the role that our Party played compared with what the Conservative Party did, so I have set out below the facts of the matter so that readers can make up their own minds about what has actually happened.
ONE of our readers wants to say thank you to two special good samaritans.
THE announcement by the Government appointed Inspector on Thursday that Harlow DistrIct Council (HDC) will need to make changes to it’s Local Plan have been welcomed by The Harlow Alliance Party (HAP) as well as hundreds of residents living in homes that have effectively been blighted by the proposals to build on fields near them.
I WILL continue to campaign with those in the town and villages who will be let down by the Tories cruel benefit cuts, bedroom tax, low wages, highest train fares, depleted bus service, and library closures. I will fight for the 1950s women who were robbed of the pension they expected with almost no notice.
I WOULD like to thank the many thousands of voters in Harlow who kindly supported me at this election, once again. To be selected as MP and to work hard for Harlow is such an incredible honour.
WHEN you ever lose an election the easiest thing to do is to proportion blame. Blame Jeremy Corbyn. Blame the media. Blame Laura Kuenssberg. Blame our Brexit policy. Blame our candidates. Blame Jess Philips. Blame Internet trolls. Blame Robert Halfon’s sign maker. Blame the weather. Blame the electorate.
THERE is no doubt that getting Brexit done is one of the biggest issues facing the UK. We have one chance to get Brexit done. If we fail to do so and fail to honour the people’s decision to leave the EU, then it’s clear that Parliament will remain gridlocked.
I WATCHED Your Harlow’s interview with Labour’s parliamentary candidate (Dec 8th) and became very concerned to hear her espousing class warfare along straight Marxist lines.
I KNOW that I have written about how businesses can use social media to do marketing, but now working in the industry for some time now, I thought I would re-share my knowledge because after working many businesses it still seems like many local businesses are reluctant to use digital marketing in their marketing strategy.
AUSTERITY is deadly. A study published in the online journal BMJ Open in 2017 estimated that cuts in public expenditure led to around 120,000 excess deaths between 2010 and 2017.
VOLUNTEERING has always been a passion of mine and it was whilst researching a variation of opportunities in different countries that I came across Think Pacific (TP). A charity that only volunteers in Fiji, making their approach specific and concentrated, meaning that maximum impact within the county can be reached because they are solely focussed on assisting in only one area.
Letter to the Editor Sir, BACK in September it was announced that £25 million had been secured from a government investment fund to revitalise the town and to boost the local economy. The Facebook site where comments can be made has only about a dozen comments. To date no other effort has been made by […]
I attended the hustings in Harlow and was incredibly disappointed that Laura McAlpine appeared unwilling and/or unable to answer the question regarding the same subject from the floor and refused to give any specifics on what, if anything, she would do about any issues of antisemitism in her party or even her own close-knit team. Merely saying, as she did, that an awful thing like antisemitism is disgusting and awful is in no way an answer but a sad and worrying deflection away from a genuinely concerning question.
Letter to Editor: Conservative policies have produced social evils that would not sound out of place in a novel by Charles Dickens
ROBERT Halfon condemns London borough councils for placing poor families in unsuitable accommodation in Harlow, but he fails to mention that the cause of this “social cleansing” is legislation for which he voted (Robert Halfon stands firm on “£1 for Terminus House” claim, November 24, 2019).
