Prestigious Award for local charity!

Local charity CVS Tendring has been celebrating following the attainment of a prestigious Quality Award in recognition of its excellent work with voluntary and community groups.


CVS Tendring has gained the rigorous award from the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA) for its work supporting and developing the voluntary sector across the district.


To win the award, CVS Tendring had to demonstrate that it made a real difference to local charities and their work.  The assessment involved an external audit and interviews with local groups, organisations and statutory organisations such as Essex County Council and the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group.


Sharon Alexander, Chief Officer of the charity said: “Everyone working and volunteering for CVS is over the moon and our volunteers, trustees and staff can give themselves a big pat on the back for what they have achieved. We know we do a great job, but now it’s official.  It’s wonderful to be recognised by our national body for the high standard of services we deliver”.

Clacton Seafront Hosts Festival Of Ganesha Visarjan

Hundreds of people turned out to celebrate the Hindu ceremony of Ganesha Visarjan at Clacton sea front on Sunday.

Final offerings were made to Lord Ganesha before two statues were taken out into the sea and immersed in water.

It brought an end to ten days of prayer and celebration before the festival finished up with the ceremony on the town’s West Beach.

The annual event was made up of two London temples and attracted a large crowd of on-lookers.

It was attended by Tendring District Council’s (TDC) Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, Cllr Mick Skeels, who regularly watches the event.

“I was delighted to welcome the temples to Clacton, and myself along with some members of the Beach Patrol received a blessing before the statues were immersed into the sea,” he said.

“The atmosphere is always amazing and I’m sure more and more people come along each year, and we are more than happy to host them.”


Ganesh Visarjan is the celebration of the birth of Lord Ganesha, who is widely revered by Hindus as the God of knowledge and the remover of obstacles.
