The Local History Group concentrates on South East Essex. Topics that members have researched recently include 'Islands around Essex' : 'Iconic Buildings of Southend' : and 'The Coming of the Railways'. We have had some very interesting speakers and from time to time we visit places of interest. Recently they had a very enjoyable visit to Old Leigh and The Heritage Centre. Finishing with tea and cake at Sara’s Tearoom.
We meet in the small hall at West Leigh Baptist Church the 3rd Friday of each month at 2.30.
This group is jointly lead by Sally and Tony.
This group has vacancies and welcomes new members.
