Elephants in the Toon!

Do you remember this?

Had a great week on Eat my Lunch with some very interesting guests. Local campaigner and resident, Gerry Bender, shared a great knowledge of the history of our town through local community venues and live music. He also brought in the photo above. Do you remember elephants in the high street? (Please let us know?)

The "Expert Patients Programme" was launched on Monday 16th February and Pauline Brown from the South West Essex PCT came in to talk about the programme. Pauline is at Brentwood library for the next week and can be contacted on:

 01268 705204.

On Tuesday I spoke to Eve Knight from AntiCoagulation Europe about the "Stop the Clot" campaign as many people in hospitals get blood clots that can be a great risk to a patient's health. Find out more on:

On Wednesday I met with Peter Hall from Cancer research UK who spoke about the launch of "Britain's Biggest Breatfast to raise funds and awareness of the charity's work.

Peter is also running in the the London marathon in April and will be back to talk to us about the experience. Find out more on: or ring 08701 602040

To round off a busy week I was joined by John Brandler from Brandler Galleries who joins me in the studio on a monthly basis to discuss the art world. John had some great advice about protecting you investments and also how to get the best from your pictures.

If you have any questions for John he will be back on Friday 20th March to answer any artisitic queries.

Email me with your questions for John at and name your email "ART WORLD"
