Hello everyone! We have a couple of upcoming events that we would like to invite you do. We will be there showcasing Beyond the Point and showing what local history remains there are.
Saturday 27th September 2014 – From 10:30 until 4PM, we will be at the War Memorial Hall on Canvey Island. This event has been organised by the Canvey Community Archive (link on the left) and has lots going on including a storyteller, Punch and Judy and stalls from other organisations including The Bay Museum, Transport Museum, Dutch Flood Museum and many more.
Sunday 12th October 2014 – From 10 until 4:30PM, we will be holding our stall at the Canvey Island Transport Museum. The Canvey Archive will be attending and you will have a fantastic opportunity to learn about the history of Canvey Island and see many old buses that were once used by many people to get around.
These are the up-coming public events that we have planned. One exclusive visit that we have at the end of October is a tour of one of the world’s most famous landmarks – Big Ben. Security is extremely high there although we have been booked in by the Castle Point MP, meaning that we will be going behind the big clock face and seeing how it all works. October also means Halloween and you know what that means…!
