Why Choose Removal Services in Essex

Essex, the oldest county of England, attracts hundreds of people every day with its beautiful landscapes and closeness to London. All those looking to be near the capital and yet far enough from the noise and pollution choose to make this county their home. Many people actually come from London, searching for more affordable homes and a better place to raise their children. However, they continue to work in the big city and come to their home in Essex each night. No matter where in this county one may decide to move, be it in Chelmsford, the county town or anywhere else, moving is a very stressful time. This is why most people decide to hire removals in Essex, because a professional company can take care of everything for them and allow them to take as little time off from work as possible.

Many people choose to move in Colchester, because this is where the University of Essex is located and they want to offer their children as many options as possible when it comes to their education. Regardless of where in this county a person might want to move, they would still have to pack everything and arrange transportation. Not to mention that their former home would have to be cleaned. So moving can take a few days and those who have demanding jobs may not always afford to take as much time off. This is why house removals in Essex have become so popular over time. The removal company can provide its clients with everything they need to complete this task successfully. From packing materials to transportation and cleaning services, everything can be much easier for those who decide to hire removal services.

Of course, one may say that these services can be too expensive, but when you choose to move to a gorgeous area near the 7th century Saxon church of St Peter-on-the-Wall in Brandwell-on-Sea, hiring a removal company should not be a problem. They will make sure you have everything you need to pack your things properly and even offer you a hand with packing if you feel you have too many things. These companies can send to your home as many men as you need to complete the moving as soon as possible. You can ask for a man and a van or you can have three men coming to your home to move all your furniture and other belongings safely from one place to another.

To conclude, removals in Essex can really save a person a lot of time and effort. Nobody needs to stress about moving when they can hire a professional to help them every step of the way and take care of everything they need. Many landlords ask their tenants to leave the house clean when they leave in order to receive their deposits. But in the hurry to move, making time to clean a home properly can be very difficult. Fortunately, removal services often come with this option and offer their clients the chance to breathe easy knowing that there is someone experienced to handle everything for them.

Starting Your Own Home Education Support Group

If you are starting a support group, you can decide what type of group you want right from the beginning.

If you have toddlers or small children you could meet in your own home (in the beginning) for mainly parents to chat and children to play.

With older children/teens organised activities related to home education such as crafts, field trips, science experiments and projects are a good idea.

Do investigate venues. Prices for church halls vary enormously as do the facilities available. Will your children want to do lots of claywork and painting? Then make sure your hall has easy to clean floors.

If you expect to have more arts and crafts (pens, crayons, etc) and events with guest speakers then a carpeted hall may be fine.

Once you have decided which hall you want to hire, you will need to contact the person who has responsibility for hiring it out.

Once you have organised your first date, start telling people about it. Maybe put up a leaflet at your local library or newsagent. Maybe put an advert in your local paper (although you will need to consider the financial aspects of this).

At your first monthly meeting remember to ask for donations from each family to cover the cost of the hall and refreshments. An average price for this depending on price of the hall and/or families attending is £2.50 to £3.50. Take a note of names, addresses and contact telephone numbers or email addresses. (You can then contact people a couple of days before the next meeting to remind them).

Get chatting to the people attending, ask them what they would like to do at the meetings, would they be interested in bringing an activity next time? Do they know anyone who would be interested in coming to give a talk or workshop? In this way you can gradually build a list of people who are willing to help out. Actively encourage members to bring activities each time for all the children to enjoy.

Some people like to “theme” a meeting say, astronomy or sealife to begin with. It makes it easier for other members of the group to think of activities to bring.

Try to book at least 3 meetings in advance – you can then give out a letter at your meeting with the next dates on.

Harlow in Essex – A Short History to the Present Day

History: Although the original village was mentioned in the Domesday Book, the new town of Harlow was built after the World War ll to ease the overcrowding in London. The development consisted of the market town of Harlow, known these days as Old Harlow, plus the villages of Great Parndon, Little Parndon, Potter Street, Latton, Tye Green, Churchgate Street and Nettleswell.

Included in the plans was Britain’s first residential tower block, The Lawn, which is today a Grade 2 listed building, and also Britain’s first ever pedestrian precinct.

Recent Developments: The town has undergone a mini expansion in recent times, with a large scale housing project known as Church Langley. In addition the £50M Harlow Gateway Partnership was formed in 2003 to find new land for housing and relocate and upgrade the sporting facilities in the town.

The project included a new Football Stadium, 530 new eco-homes on the old sports centre site, plus a state of the art Leisure Centre, including Swimming Pool and sporting facilities which will be used by competitors from all over the world during the London Olympics in 2012.

The aim of the project was not just to achieve the above, but also build stronger links between education, sport and health, whilst creating new jobs and training opportunities. A council spokesman said it would create a “lasting legacy” for the town of Harlow, and one that the residents would be proud of for years to come.

Recently, the project came runner-up in Local Government Chronicle and Health Service Journal Awards 2009, being highly commended in the ‘Creating a Lasting Legacy’ category.
