Thanks to funding from the ECC Local Services Fund, the CAB and the HRA have worked in partnership to create a Monday Morning Advice Session in Holland Library. This is by appointment only (to book ring CAB Clacton on 01255 377080 ext. 111, Monday to Thursday 9.30am to 4.30pm). The advice is impartial and confidential and will cover any issues e.g. benefits, debt, pensions, legal, elder abuse etc. Special thanks and appreciation goes to local resident Mrs Sidney Mowatt who has kindly volunteered and been specially retrained to provide this service to Holland on Sea residents.
Make use of this free service to get the help you need without having to travel into Clacton
PLEASE NOTE. DUE TO STAFF SHORTAGES THE CITIZENS ADVICE BUREAU HAVE FOUND IT NECESSARY TO SUSPEND THIS SERVICE (DATED 17th FEB.2020)
Our experiment with holding a day-time event was not wholly successful. The consensus of opinion was that the whole Christmas atmosphere is enhanced by the village being "lit-up" in the dark. This was missing during the day-light.
Things were not helped by gale force winds which forced the last minute withdrawal of several stallholders and made life very difficult for those who did attend.
However,the majority of people who braved the elements appeared to have a good time and Father Christmas (safely tucked away in St Barts Church Hall) proved as popular as ever - for children and adults!
This has given us plenty to think about for potential future events.
