Exciting News!!!

We will be holding our first public meeting since February 2020 at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday 30 September in the Trinity Methodist Church Hall, on the corner of Pier Avenue and Rosemary Road West. 

 

The speaker will be our Chairman who will belatedly be giving an illustrated talk on the Origins of Clacton-on-Sea to celebrate this year's 150th anniversary.

 

Please note the change of venue from our normal meetings. This will now be our permanent home and our permanent meeting night will change from the third Thursday of each month to the last Thursday of each month.

 

There is a small car park available, also on-road parking in Pier Avenue and Rosemary Road as well as the Council Car Park a short distance away.

 

Admission to this meeting will be free for everyone.
