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, 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 2017, we have enjoyed entertaining talks on a variety of topics including How Weather Forecasts are Made, English Cheeses (with samples) and the Work of a Magistrate.

Please see the Diary below for details of future talks


The Events Secretary organises a variety of visits and events, including coach trips to places of interest, theatre trips and social events. Details and costs are publicised in the monthly News Sheet and there are booking sheets at the monthly meetings at the Events secretary's table. Full payment is required at the time of booking. If the trip later proves not to be viable, the money will be refunded in full. Should you need to cancel your place, the cancellation policy sets out the policy on refunds.
