  Nurseries in Hawkwell: Have a look here at the latest post on the Message Boards (on our General Board). Can anyone help?

We are always interested in new volunteers to help us with our activities: currently we particularly need one or more people who have an interest in computing and/or audiovisuals to help with the running of the site and possibly ultimately take over the webmaster duties from Bob Stephen (ie me!). Drop us an email or give us a ring (via Contact Us link on left).

  Hall at end of South Street: Have a look here at the latest post on the Message Boards (on our General Board). Can anyone help?

  Rochford Town Trail: An attempt is being made to get a town trail set-up. There will be a meeting this Thursday, other are likely. Have a look at the latest post in Message Boards (on our General Board). UPDATE - Brian Pettitt attended the meeting: apparently Rochford Council have obtained a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to setup a Rochford Town Trail as a smartphone application. Other meetings will be taking place to refine the content of the application. More general information here.

 Information Please: We have had requests recently for information : one about a project on Canewdon Myths and Legendsclick here ; another about the existence of books or booklets on South Fambridge and the Rochford Workhouse - click here - (Brian Meldon has recently come up with a pdf book about S. Fambridge - copy and paste his link into your web browser); finally one of our viewers seeks photos and additional information about Hawkwell Hall Farm - click here - (Brian Pettitt has posted some suggestions).

 RDCA Display at Paglesham Show: This year's Paglesham show took place on the August Bank Holiday weekend. RDCA had a display on the Saturday with the stand surrounded by people interested in the display and photos. We were given a number of contacts about memories of Ashingdon, Fambridge and Hawkwell as well as a name or two for some of Peter Thorogood's photos. Thanks to Viv Irvine and Len Bickford who were at the stand for 4 hours. Brian Pettitt, chair RDCA.
