26th January 2010: Keep on Running...

Bright and early this morning I was joined by John Wheeler from the beginners running club at Hannakins Farm Community Centre, which is set up in partnership with Run In England.


The beginners session has been set up specifically for individuals who have never belonged to a running club before and want to give it a go. Run in England has been set up to encourage individuals of all ages, shapes and sizes to partake in a group running activity. A great opportunity to meet like minded people and get some exercise and fresh air as well. The meet every Friday @10am at the Hannakins Farm Community Centre and for more details contact John wheeler on 01277 651968 or e-mail


Potholes continue to appear across the County's roads, with a particularly bad stretch between Hutton and Billericay on the Rayleigh Road which is heavily used on the School run and for local commuters. Essex County Council have a budget of £5.6 million to fix the road defects but how long will it be before the repairs are done and when will scientists create a road surface that resists ice and snow damage???


The Australians celebrate their National day and even though Prince William went down a storm, or should I say heatwave, on his recent visit, today has seen debates start over the country's links to Britain. There have been suggestions that the flag should be redesigned...


However North-East France are pledging that they are part of South-East England to get a piece of the Olympic Pie


In Sport Chelmsford lose to Staines at Home and play Oxford at the weekend. Southend take on Millwall tonight with a fit first team. Andy Murray beats Nadal in two sets and is through to the semi final without dropping a set in the tournament.


Today Annie Craig and Craig Burchell celebrate their Birthday with Wham's Andrew Ridgeley.
