Our monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of the month at 2pm in the Plantation Hall, Heybridge. We start with news and updates, usually followed by a talk by an external speaker for about an hour. Refreshments are then available and there is an opportunity to talk to other members, sign up for a visit or find out more about an interest group.

During 2019 we have had a variety of talks. To mention just a few, the lives and music of Del Shannon and Roy Orbinson, the Essex Regiment during World War One, a pictorial presentation of a day in the life of a Thames Tug. Deborah Hart demonstrated how to make a garden ornament out of willow. The Essex Search and Rescue Team gave us an interesting presentation on what they do and how they train their dogs.

Please see the Diary below for details of future talks
