The Local History Group will meet once a month, from 2 pm to 4 pm on the last Monday of each month (except for bank holiday Monday’s)
We now meet at the Evangelical Church Hall 45,Fobbing road which is just past the Fire Station. There is a large cross at the front of the building so easily spotted.
I appreciate that this is a bit out of the way if you live near Corringham Town Centre but perhaps lifts can be arranged. If you have any queries please email me Julia Harding or telephone 01375 671519
Full details of the visits will be emailed to members of the group nearer the time. If you are not a member and would like details of any of the trips, please let me know. Any members can take part but please book with Julia.
In addition we will be visiting local places of historical interest as and when; normally one visit a month but this will be flexible. Future visits could be further afield. We will use either public transport or drive to the venues. Costs will vary.
I am currently trying to persuade our members to talk about growing up in the area. If you feel you could come and talk to us please let me know.
