Raynauld’s, Brentwood NCT, Debating TOWIE & Tamsin speaking on Elim Church

Monday 6th & Tuesday 7th February 2012: Today I covered the weather (must keep an eye on that – woke up to about a foot of snow yesterday morning!) I covered some local news from stories collaborated over the weekend. On Tuesday I explained what Raynauld’s is as it is Raynauld’s awareness month. Many people are living with the condition, some go undiagnosed until it becomes a constant problem or until symptoms advance.

Raynaulds

“Raynaud’s is a common condition in which blood is prevented from reaching the extremities of the body, mainly the fingers and toes, on exposure to the cold or any slight change in temperature. A small number of people who have Raynaud’s also develop scleroderma, a disease which affects the connective tissue.

Scleroderma means hard skin but the hardness is not limited to the skin – the internal organs and their blood supply may become damaged. Scleroderma can be devastating not only for the person who has the condition but also for the families concerned.”

Wednesday 8th February:

Jo Dewar from Brentwood National Childbirth Trust joined me to speak about all the wonderful support they offer for pre and post natal men and women including antenatal classes, breast feeding support and cafe, coffee mornings, baby welcome, pudding club, insightful newsletters that also connect mums together and events. The NCT is a charity, those that get involved put their time in on a completely voluntary basis and the Brentwood branch has won awards for being a particulary successful and supportive community minded organisation. Listen again Jo Dewar on Brentwood NCT and for more information click https://www.nct.org.uk/branches/brentwood

Thursday 9th and Friday 10th!

Final count down to the Phoenixfm move to new, bigger and better studios at the Brentwood Centre! Its all very exciting but nerve wracking for those with the knowledge of how to dismantle and put back together a radio station! The lads have been working really hard. On thursday Keith Brown and I had our usual weekly catch up on local business news and community matters and we also had a very entertaining debate on differing viewpoints on TOWIE Debate with Keith Brown on TOWIE

On friday Tamsin Ball came into to tell me about Elim Church in Ingatestone and the wonderful friends she has made there. Tamsin is a manual wheelchair user and the members at Elim often take her out and invite her to social and church activities. Elim meets on a Sunday morning and at various other times. They also have a “Healing Bus Ministry,” study groups and various other activites. Find out more https://www.ingatestoneelim.org/index.html Tamsin said that going to Elim in Ingatestone has helped her to not become isolated living in Ingatestone and provides a support that is there if she is need of it. Julie from the church does her cleaning once a week and the prayer group go to her house so that Tamsin does not have the hastle of having to opperate her wheelchair around a non-disabled environment.
