This year the Chelmsford Civic Society is co-ordinating the Heritage Open Days on behalf of the City Council. These take place between Thursday the 10th and Sunday the 13th of September. Nationally the Heritage Open Days is managed by the National Trust. Last year the sites that were open attracted over three million people. All events are free.
A forward-thinking initiative from Essex County Council is helping plug the gap of highly-skilled workers in the science, technology and engineering sectors in Britain today.
Damning findings from a recent Confederation of British Industry report have revealed more than half of employers fear they will not be able to recruit enough high-skilled workers.
In an attempt to address this, four years ago (2011), Essex County Council launched the Education and Industry STEM programme to directly target shortages in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

As you may be aware, a serious vulnerability codenamed "Heartbleed" was recently discovered in OpenSSL, the open-source software library used by nearly all internet-enabled devices to implement secure SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) connections.
The vulnerability allows an attacker to, in theory, read supposedly secure information from the server's memory; this includes data such as usernames, passwords and even the encryption keys used to secure communications with the server.
We would like to assure you that the version of OpenSSL currently used on this website is not vulnerable to this, and so you need take no action. Furthermore, any updates applied from now on will not include this bug as it has been fixed.
