Wednesday 7th April - Is it the middle of the week already???

Julia Curle will be starring in the Call of the Hunter which is being screened at The Brentwood Theatre on April 25th at 2.30pm.  There will also be a Q&A session with the Director after the screening.

After the tragic and unexplained death of her cousin Ted on a camping trip in 1968, Caroline made it her mission to discover the truth of the event. Working with, Tamsin, a TV producer, to recreate the tragedy in a documentary film Caroline’s research centred round the spectral image of a hooded and hornedman that had haunted her for the last forty years. But, the film was postponed for Caroline was mysteriously murdered. Determined to finish what Caroline had started, Tamsin seconded Ralph, Caroline’s brother and sole survivor of the camping trip, into working on the television documentary Ralph re-lives and revives the story of the fateful night and the crew find more truth in his tale than they could ever have expected. The four days shooting could be the last days of everyone’s life. The hooded man is back and the spirit of the forest is awoken

  • CHELMSFORD Athletic Club's young runner Jessica Judd ran an outstanding race to win the Under 15 Girls' event in the English National Cross-Country Championships at Roundhay Park, Leeds on Saturday.  Jessica went straight into the lead and managed to pull further away from her opposition around the four kilometre course to beat all her rivals. After finishing third last year she was understandably nervous beforehand but once the hooter sounded for the start of the race, the worry disappeared and she was able to get on with the task in hand.Coming home third was fellow Chelmsford club member Sophie Riches.

  • SIX-YEAR-OLD boy was found with a penknife at school. Nicola Shadbolt, headteacher at Aveley primary school, tried to quell fears by saying he kept the knife in his pocket all day and did not threaten anyone with it. She said: “It was a really minor incident. The rumour that it was a flick knife is untrue. It was a penknife. I followed it up with his mum and she said he is allowed it at home. I said it should definitely not come into school again. I have spoken to the mother again and reminded her.” A concerned parent, who wanted to remain anonymous, said: “My child is in the same class as the boy and I was so surprised. My child came home and replicated the action of a flick knife. Where would a child learn that? I have spoken to the other mums and we are all disgusted. We expected him to be suspended or an emergency meeting called for the parents, but it was not addressed at all.” Helen Cook, a spokeswoman for Essex Police, said there was little officers could do about the incident. She added: “A child of six is under the age of criminal responsibility.”
