 HELLO AND WELCOME

Hello and welcome to the website of Mid Essex Talking News, a registered charity run entirely by volunteers to provide a FREE weekly service of local news and visually impaired information for the blind and partially sighted living in Braintree, Witham, Halstead, Dunmow and their surrounding villages

. Thought for the week.

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years”        Abraham Lincoln

Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands and then only eat one of the pieces’    Judith Viorst

A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

Politicians tell lies to journalists and then believe what they read.

Two wrongs do not make a right, but they make a good excuse.

When you argue with an idiot make sure he is not doing the same.

Trustees have decided to make 2013 a year when we concentrate on promoting the services of the charity. Fundraising events, including annual street collections, are being shelved so volunteers and supporters can concentrate on spreading the ‘Use Us or Help Us’ message as widely as possible. First steps involve requesting church magazines, parish council newsletters and community publications to print an article in one of the first three months of the year explaining what the charity does and how it can be helped.
