2011: Year in Review: June

Crime

We noted the Summer Essex Police Drink Driving campaign. Which led us to wonder. What happened to the Xmas campaign? The cuts we are told.

Education

Steve Munday took up his place as the new head of William Edwards and so did Dr Sophina Asong, new head at Gable Hall.

Whilst South Essex College students were always in the news with a whole host of activities.

Hassenbrook had a great success evening and St Cleres students won a road safety quiz.

Entertainment

Thurrock Drama Festival was once again a success. Small audiences but a great raft of entertainment.

Sport

Good to see Stanford boxer Wayne Hibbert gain valuable TV coverage on Sky TV.

Politics

The council announced a CCTV would be homing in on 4×4 mums causing havoc outside schools.

Council boss, Graham Farrant laid down the law to housing repair company Morrison with a “Shape up or ship out” call

Community

It was great to see Tilbury community leader Pete Hewitt and Sericc stalwart Lee Eggleston awarded MBE’s

We filmed at the fascinating Barnards Farm

Business

Orsett Hall opened their lovely Garden restaurant whilst Park Inn had a great night with Les Miserables star Phil Cavill
