Drive - 2nd - 6th

The previous week on Drive saw me speak to Colin Freeman, ex-of Essex Police who came to speak to us about the safety demonstration days Essex police were holding to pass on crime tips to the public. His main passion though is getting more of us involved in Neighbourhood Watch which is what he looks after now and it was great to hear him talk with such enthusiasm about getting more people to look out for each other - and cut the chance of something happening to someone's property. I'm sure he'll be interested if you're looking to set up a neighourbood watch scheme in your area - for more information go on to the police website for further contact details at

We also spoke to new group Absent Elk who've been getting a lot of good press - they have a nice wintery feel to their music - aptly as their lead singer is from Norway originally and joined up with the rest of the band from Brighton. Caught in the headlights is their new album, and lots of impressive people have been tipping them for good things - check them out at

Also heard again from Cllr Karen Sheehan from Brentwood council and she's popping in over the next couple of weeks again ahead of the xmas lights turn on - also had the leader of the council Louise McKinlay spoke to us about the events they've got planned for the xmas lights which can also be seen as an unofficial launch of the new high street which has been refurbished - and will be completely open by Nov 28th. These include parade, market stalls, childrens poem competition, and there are other ways people can save money ahead of xmas. All details can be found at
