What's happening in Essex
Community Clean Up
BRUSHES AND MOPS AT THE READY! Many members of our community make their mark on our local streets by joining various local Essex cleaning initiatives throughout the community in a bid to keep our parks, streets, roads and pavements looking clean and look after.
Scams On The Rise
KEEPING YOU ON YOUR TOES! It is important to keep up to date and on your toes when it comes to local fraud and scams. There are so many currently out there it is important you are aware of the more common and frequent ones.
Our High Streets Still Suffering
ARE WE WAVING GOODBYE TO OUR LOCAL HIGHSTREET? Our local High Streets have been suffering in the consumer downturn. Customers have been watching their pennies amid concerns about high inflation and job security. Recently we have lost many large retailers that have been hit by the economic climate and the increasing online competition.
Will Online Shopping Be The Death Of Our High Streets
ARE YOU AN ONLINE SHOPPER AND A BARGAIN SURFER? We do not know to what extent the increasing activity of online shopping will eventually have on our Essex based high street retailers but some predict it may end the high street shopping as a whole in the future.
Council Tax Rises As Councils Set To Save Money
MORE CUTS..... GREAT!!! Many councils across the UK now have the choice to either increase council tax, raise the funds by cutting back on other factors or even worse they do both.
Dealing With Stress At Work
ARE WE GETTING TOO STRESSED AT WORK? While some workplace stress is completely normal, excessive stress can interfere with your productivity and impact your physical and emotional health. This means your ability to deal with it can mean the difference between success or failure.
