PUBLISHED: 12:00 10 February 2019 Havering Town Hall Archant Letters, contributions and comments sent in from Recorder readers this week. Some RA councillors did back ToriesDenis O’Flynn, full address supplied, writes:Terry F Matthews LL B ( Hons) Romford Recorder (February 1) seems to be suffering from an ailment known as the amnesia of convenience when he claims RA councillors have never propped up a Tory administration. You mate, have got to be joking.Have you forgotten the number of occasions when RA and Tory formed the administration and have you looked at the last council and the number of RAs who actually sat on the cabinet and the present Harold Wood councillors who are part of the present administration thus keeping the Tories in power?In fairness, I watch some arguments advanced by the present RA leadership as both challenging and factual a far cry from the days when a vote for RA meant a vote for the Tories when the chips were down.Harold Hill residents will … [Read more...] about Recorder letters: Dovers Farm Green, RA councillors, clean up borough, care for the elderly and parking policies.
CLEANING Up fans were left shocked by the cliffhanger in last night's episode, with Sheridan Smith's character Sam being confronted by a compliance manager as she stepped up her insider trading. Viewers were on tenterhooks as the ITV drama reached its exciting climax during the third instalment of the six-part series. So far in the show, single-mum Sam has been using information that she gathers during her job as a cleaner at a big financial corporation to make money to fund her gambling addiction. Tonight's shock cliffhanger teased that Sam's world may be about to come crashing down as the listening device that she had planted in the office was discovered. Earlier in the episode, all of the firm's cleaners were warned that they were investigating a security breach, but Sam was nonplussed and continued with her scheme. She managed to set up a meeting with Graeme, the man that Blake had secretly been working for, pretending to be a posh woman called Nancy. While this was going on, the … [Read more...] about Cleaning Up viewers shocked as Sam confronted by compliance manager as she steps up her insider trading

Having a keen interest in marine conservation and raising awareness about the global plastic pollution crisis, I contacted Gary Jolliffe when I found out about his Till the Coast is Clear initiative, and was delighted when he not only agreed to meet up and talk about it, but invited me and my friend Emily Price on his boat to help out.Gary has been tackling the South Hams shoreline cove by cove, bringing a hands-on approach to the world’s daunting marine pollution problem while creating a space for social interaction and contributing to a circular economy.Upon arriving at the … [Read more...] about Cleaning up the coast Till the Coast is Clear
November 02, 2018 06:02 PM Get yourself to Brig! If you want to hear something good about Gianni Infantino -- only good, that is, or anything good at all -- go to Valais. To the Swiss mountains, to Brig, the small town where he grew up before becoming the big man he is today. The most powerful person in the world football. To get there from Zurich, you snake your way through the switchbacks of the Furka Pass. You first see the signpost pointing toward Brig once you're over the top of the pass, even though you're still more than 50 kilometers away. There's not really much to put a sign up for here, anyway. Once in Brig, you'll go past the Imboden Bakery, where owner Philibert Imboden invented a "Gianni" bread -- with olives and tomatoes in rye dough -- when Infantino was elected FIFA president. Then past the Geschina sports field, where last year, some 4,500 spectators crammed themselves in right up to the touchlines to watch a legends match. Even Maradona was there for the … [Read more...] about Gianni Infantino: How FIFA’s President Failed To Clean Up Football
