TUESDAY - Laura Underwood popped in today to talk about her fundraising event

GUEST:

Laura Underwood popped in today to talk about her fundraising event to send funds to a Vietnamese orphanage so that the children can enjoy regular trips to the local swimming pool

The project aims to give mild to seriously handicapped children access to a swimming pool. Whilst in the water the children can experience freedom of movement that is not usually possible for them. Unfortunately the logistics and practicalities of taken dozens of disabled children to a sports centre is difficult and costly. So, with your help, I would like to raise some money to help with expenses.

On  Friday 18th February there will be an evening of fundraising at Bardswell Social Club from 7.30 pm the night will include;

- Live music from fantastic singer/songwriter Darren Jones

- Auction of Promises

- Buffet

- Full licensed bar, and much more!

Please not that there will be no charge to enter, instead you will be asked if you would make a donation at the door.

Evening Echo, By Laura Smith

POLICE officers visited pubs in Billericay to test for drugs.  A team of officers spent Friday night at venues in the High Street, swabbing toilets, hand driers and sinks for traces of cocaine.  Landlords were advised how to keep the drug out of their premises, including smearing vaseline on the top of all smooth surfaces.
