The Crossroads Charity, based in the Braintree and Chelmsford, supports young carers and the people they care for.

Gary Brown and Lesley Sherer, club captains of Benton Hall Golf and Country Club, decided to support the charity by raising £10,000 during their year of captaincy with their management and members of the club.

A charity auction raised more than £4,700, quiz nights held by the seniors section raised more than £1,000, Captain’s competitions throughout the year raised more than £2,000 and club member Alan Moore raised £1,100 by running the London Marathon.

The club beat their target and were able to present Crossroads representative Clare Reeve with a cheque for £13,173, the largest annual sum raised by captains throughout the club’s 20 years.

I did ask whether any Newsquest journalists would be attending the City and Guilds Level 3 Award in English for Literacy and Language Teaching scheduled to be run for the 20 weeks commencing 29th January.at the ACL in Spinks Lane, Witham, (BWT report 20th January refers).

No Response - what a surprise!

I'm sure that they will probably all be far too busy for that sort of thing so I strongly recommend that they are all provided with a copy of Caroline Taggart's excellent little book entitled 'Her Ladyship's Guide to the Queen's English'.

Indeed I recommend it to anyone who aspires to talking and writing proper like.
