Brentwood Bag Project & Explorer: Vic Cross

Second week of March 2012:

As usual on drive I covered lots of local news and slipped in some health and wellbeing features to hopefully enhance the health and wellbeing of the Brentwood & Billericay community and surrounding areas. I always like to keep a watch on the weather as well.

Claire Mackaness joined me in the studio on Monday surprising us with the news that the Brentwood Bag Project has been launched successfully thanks to support of the Brentwood Council’s Share Fund! The Brentwood Bag project is looking for schools, groups and organisations to join the project. It will teach them how to make re-useable bags and provide them with a sewing machine so they can continue making them into the future. Groups/organisations will receive 1 pound per bag they make to keep for their own fundraising or “kitty.” Claire will also teach them how to make “bags in batch,” so they can get as much from the project as possible. The bags will be sold in local high street shops. Listen again to find out lots more about the whole concept and how it aims to enhance the local community. Brentwood Bag Project interview To get involved or find out more go to www.brentwoodbagproject.co.uk or call Claire on 01277 230769. The interview is also available to watch on

I was off Phoenix on Thursday so sorry if I missed you but Mike Jones Phoenixfm Presenter covered for me and no doubt spoke to Keith or Alan from FSB about local and current business news. Thank you Mike for your help there. I am a student at the moment and essays are taking up a considerable amount of time especially as the deadline in April!

On Friday I was back into the studio on Drive to speak to local resident Vic Cross who is an explorer in his spare time. This man chooses not to rest on vacations but to travel, explore and head out on adventures. That is exactly what he is doing in November when he flies to the most dangerous airport at the base of Everest called Luckla. Many plans have had fatal crashes on landing at this airport as it has a very short runway and at the end of it is a mountain. Vic will then be trekking hundreds of miles up and down hilly mountainous terrain dragging his body through extreme changes in temperature and latitude.
