Advance Notice

Visit to HM Costguard Station, Shoebury Common.

Unfortunately, due to staff shortages, the Coastguard had to cancel us at fairly short notice.

We will look at this again next spring.

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.

New Website Coming Soon

A new website is currently under development and will hopefully be active in time for the AGM.
