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.

In 2018, we enjoyed entertaining talks on a variety of topics, including The History of Surnames, The Life of a Parliamentary Reporter, and the Challenges of being a female Press Photographer. At our Strawberry Tea in July, we sang along with a musical entertainer and in December, our own Ukulele Group helped us to celebrate Christmas.

Please see the Diary below for details of future talks
