Sally Ann's WalkAs part of my attempt to achieve 1000 miles of walking in 2018, I intend doing a 10mile stroll on Saturday 27 Jan -  Start at Chalkwell Park carpark at 10.30am. Perhaps stop for a lunch break? Maybe just do half or part of the walk. All welcome ... let's get some fresh air folk!! click here



We held the first meeting of the new year at the Royal Naval Association in East Street, Southend-on-Sea. Vanessa, our president, began the evening by asking us to sing "Jerusalem" then Roger took the microphone to welcome us to our new venue. After the formalities came the business of the evening: "A Food Quiz" organized by Sally-Ann with Sue's assistance. This was accompanied by much chatter as members debated the types of cheese they had just nibbled or the age of the celebrity chefs in the picture - while catching up with the latest news from their friends. Before she drew the raffle, Vanessa auctioned off the "unwanted Christmas Gifts" to much hilarity and heckling. A great evening!
