POLL: Are new year’s resolutions a good idea?

It’s New Year’s Eve and the time that many people look to the year ahead and think about what changes they want to make to their lives.

Whether you want to give up smoking, take up synchronised swimming or learn the bassoon, for many the new year heralds a new start.

As part of the celebrations we want to know if you think making resolutions are a good idea or are purely a waste of time.

Let us know what you think in the poll to the right, tweet us @IlfordRecorder or email newsdesk@ilfordrecorder.co.uk.
