Club Barbecue and Play Day


16th July 2017


The club will again be holding its annual barbecue and experiment day down on the farm in Little Wakering. The day is purely for fun (club members only) and we will be providing hot dogs, burgers and, of course, bacon rolls during the day. You may bring your own food to be cremated (sorry, cooked to a high standard) if you wish.

It is also the day to bring along anything you would like to experiment with or that you would like someone to help you with.


Report on last year’s event here.

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:-


www.essexham.co.uk/coalhouse-fort-amateur-radio.


Pop in and see them next open day.
