Advance Notice

Visit to HM Costguard Station, Shoebury Common.

Saturday 16th September 2017 10am

Arrangements have been made for the club to have a guided tour of the Coastguard Station at Shoebury Common, courtesy of Saul Stevens, Station Officer.

This will include briefings on equipment used in both the station and response vehicle and on procedures followed during emergencies.

Unfortunately, access is via steep, metal, fire escape type stairs so this is not an outing for anyone that can’t manage steep ascents, I’m afraid.

There is no room to park in the station but there is adequate parking a little further along Ness Road

Clubs with a difference

Have you ever visited Coalhouse Fort Club.

Well worth the trip out, very friendly crew, unusual ‘club house/radio shack’ in a very interesting setting. They don’t have their own website but Essex Ham has most of the details at:-


Pop in and see them next open day.
