About Us

 Hello, my name is Sandra Dean (no, not from Grease!) and I have set up this wonderful website to show you what Essex has to offer – great places to go, fabulous places to eat, and a rather surprisingly long list of Essex Celebrities!

I would also like to share with you my own stories, photos and articles on a variety of topics and keep you updated with Essex Celebrities (ladies).

A very major issue I want to raise awareness of is the ‘plight of the Orangutan’ These beautiful primates are endangered, and really need more help to survive. I came back from a very informative trip to Borneo in September 2008 to see first hand what is really happening out there and why there are so many orphans. My time there brought me both sadness and overwhelming happiness, so I decided to make my own efforts to ‘save the Orangutan’. Whilst it was wonderful to see wild Orangutan Mother, baby and Adult Male swinging free in the trees in one place, and the fantastic work of the Rehabilitation Centres for Orphans, the sad fact is that they are orphans because their Mother’s have been killed.  They really need your help!  Please read the sections on the site to find out more!  My motto on this subject is My motto is: ‘Every letter helps – every penny helps – help today as tomorrow may be too late!’  (I have info on this site, but also have a dedicated website now at )

I was born in the 70’s and come from Benfleet in Essex.  I have travelled the world over the years, to find that ‘Essex Girl’s’ are practically the most famous girls in the World. Fancy that! However, we have not been publicised for being ‘nice girls’ or ‘intelligent’ – quite the opposite! So, I would like to show the World that we have plenty of Essex girls doing good things, and that Denise van Outen and Helen Mirren are not the only ones….
With the help from the Media, I intend to rejuvenate the image of Essex and its population. In the meantime, I hope you like reading my current articles….
