On 11 November 2018, communities will gather on beaches across the UK to say thank you and goodbye. Film-maker Danny Boyle invites you to join him in marking 100 years since Armistice and the end of the First World War. Pages of the Sea is a unique moment to say goodbye, together, to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return.
A multi-agency action day was held in Jaywick Sands to target illegal waste carriers operating in the area.
Tendring District Council (TDC) teamed up with partners including the Environment Agency and Essex Police to carry out stop checks on commercial vehicles passing through the Brooklands and Grasslands area.
Staff from the agencies also went door to door giving information to residents on the warning signs of those dumping waste or dealing in scrap metal without the correct licences, and to collect intelligence about the crime.
Jaywick Sands was chosen for the action day as the area is targeted by fly-tippers and illegal waste carriers, and the event was a follow-up on work carried out by TDC earlier in the year to clear an illegal waste site in Brooklands Gardens.
The action day also ties in with the #CrimeNotToCare campaign run by Love Essex, a partnership of all Essex local authorities, which encourages people to take responsibility for their own waste. This includes making sure anyone who disposes of their rubbish is properly licensed.
Michael Talbot, TDC Cabinet Member for Environment, said those dumping waste illegally needed to get the message that it would not be tolerated.
“Illegal waste carriers and fly-tippers are an absolute blight on our communities, and the council and our partners will always take a robust response against them,” Cllr Talbot said.
“Fly-tipping is bad for the environment, lowers the quality of life for residents, costs taxpayers to clear up and denies legitimate, responsible businesses work.
“I am grateful to the Environment Agency and Essex Police for their support with the day of action.”
Andrew Raine, Environment Manager for Essex at the Environment Agency, said: “Fly-tipping and illegal waste disposal remains a scourge on our society and we are always keen to work with our partners on multi-agency days of action such as this to tackle a serious and costly environmental problem.”
Paul Honeywood, TDC Cabinet Member with special responsibility for Jaywick Sands, said the action day was an example of the council’s effort to work with the community.
“Engagement with residents highlighted this issue as being a high priority to tackle, so I am delighted we were able to hold this event around Jaywick Sands,” Cllr Honeywood said.

Isn’t it strange how any individual or political party that expresses a contrary point of view to that of the EU Mandarins is stereotyped as Far Right, Racist and xenophobic or sometimes all three. When it is the EU policies that have lead to massive imports of cheap far eastern goods whilst depressing the incomes of its own citizens by bringing in cheap labour often from outside EU countries. But then with the Banks and Multi-nationals devising most EU policy, hardly surprising.
A portrait of the most destructive thing that has befallen the UK since the end of the Second World War
How about making politicians & public servants prove where they got their millions/billions from. The above devious piece of work wrapped up his rumoured Saudi, EU & other bribes into trust funds. His buddies gave him a huge break on the weapons of mass destruction enquiry instead of sending him to jail. He also sealed up the papers on Dr David Kelly’s death. Why? He is an agent for the EU & a mega tax evader. What ever he recommends is toxic for decent UK people.
It seems that some people who decided that the Referendum back in 2016 was devisive are now equally convinced that another referendum would bring the country together? Not sure where this delusion springs from, but would bet that the campaign is funded by economy killers like George Soros and backdoor money from the EUs ‘we must all love the EU‘ promotion fund.
I keep hearing people, many of whom should know better, stating with total conviction, that the British People voted to join the European Union back in 1975.
First, we were never given the option to join we were insinuated into the then European Economic Community by Grocer Heath, a man who on every other level was totally mistrusted by all. Then we had Harold Wilson, a man whose reputation for brokering bad deals for the UK was legendary. Giving us the option to leave whilst perpetuating the myth that it was only ever going to be a trade deal, knowing full well that the ultimate goal was a fully federal Europe, controlled by an unelected bureaucracy whose policies are primarily formed by Mult national Corporations and Banks. Because that’s guaranteed to be for the benefit of all, NOT.
So those that insist we voted to join the EU are either misguided, misinformed, in the pay of Eurocrats or more likely in the Remain at all costs camp because the lies just keep rolling on.
