Local History

This is a new group which started in May 2018. It is led by Brenda Kirk and we meet at Brenda's home at 65, Woodside on the first Friday in the month from 2pm - 4pm.

2018

At the August meeting on Friday 3rd we discussed interesting people of note that are, or have been, associated with Southend and surrounding districts. As it happens we discussed people not only from this century but indeed earlier centuries, going back a few hundred years.

Our September meeting was all about 'Leisure and Pleasure'. We listened to many interesting facts about Essex that were new to us....Essex Yacht Cub, Lulworth Court, the sea front Swimming Pool and many other places of interest in the Southend area.

For October and November we have all chosen a local area to research. We will then type this up and read this out to all our members. From this we can then discuss each individual's presentation. This should make for an interesting topic.
As we are a new group we are expanding every month and new members are of course, very welcome.

March 2019 Update

This group will be suspended until further notice due to unforeseen circumstances, this will be reviewed in the summer.
