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.
Push For Local Apprenticeships
INVESTING IN THE LOCAL WORKFORCE. The Essex council and government have tried many initiatives over the years, one being local apprenticeships.
Are You Insured? Are You Covered?
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY! In this day and age it seems as if everyone is trying to sell you insurance for everything such as pet insurance, phone insurance, laptop insurance and tablet insurance.
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.
Avoid The Local Cowboys
HOW EASY IS IT TO SPOT A LOCAL COWBOY TRADER? There are numerous reasons why cowboy builders get away with their bad practices and carry on working in the community such as people not asking for verified references, no signed contract, not obtaining at least 3 other quotes to compare, clients naturally go for the cheapest quote and some residents or businesses are impatient and choose not to wait for the best builder.
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.
