At the AGM meeting on Tuesday 2nd. October 2018, the existing committee members stood for re-election in their existing positions and all were duly voted back in by the membership present.

The brief AGM meeting was followed by a fascinating talk by Simon Gallup on 'Lavenham, Dedham and the cloth trade'.


Liz Bruce and Mary Dean provided a most enjoyable and entertaining evening on Tuesday 6th February 2018. The turn out was good despite the inclement weather and those attending contributed and shared their own experiences of life at home in the war and post-war eras. The food cooked by the ladies to recipes of the time was enjoyed by all and the most popular was the 'Trench Cake' and several requests were registered for copies of the recipe.


The 'After Christmas Meal' held at Clacton Golf Club today, Tuesday 9th. January 2018 was greatly enjoyed by all of the members and their guests who attended. The meals and drinks were well presented and the service was perfectly delivered in a timely manner.

A brief and spontaneously delivered speech of thanks was given by Neil Stedman to both of the Society's secretaries, Eve Casey and Brenda Dixson for their valient efforts in organising the event and to the partakers of the meal for making it such a pleasant and sociable occasion.
