    Farleigh Hospice's annual Christmas tree recycling scheme this year has raised over £41,000 for local charities.

    Over 2,600 trees were collected between 7-9 January 2022 across Mid-Essex by local volunteers. The trees were then chipped and turned into biofuel and materials for pathways for local parks and cemeteries.

    Cllr James Newport tells the Focus team…

    A resident recently contacted me about the state of the pathway that runs between Rawreth Industrial Estate and Sterling Close. I have been in contact with officers at Rochford District Council and they have told me that Suez will be out to tidy up the area. I also requested a litter pick of Downhall Park Way and adjacent areas, which has been added to the list.Please let me know if there are other areas that are in need of litter picking and I will make the appropriate requests.

    Chelmsford City Council's Cabinet has agreed a policy to protect and expand public open spaces. The Lib Dem-led council will not allow any land designated as public open space to be used for any other purpose.

    More areas of wildlife habitat will be created in and around Chelmsford and South Woodham Ferrers. Existing landscapes and open spaces will also be protected. The council will prioritise ensuring that public open spaces are clean, safe and easily accessible to all residents.
