On Wednesday this week Canvey Community Archive and Canvey Library hosted the Canvey Launch of Pat Reynoldson-Smith’s new book The 1953 Essex Flood Disaster – The People’s Story , written in the memory of her friend Peggy Morgan who lost her whole family in the floods.
What a great turnout considering the weather conditions earlier in the day. Pat gave a lovely talk about a very emotional subject and she was joined by members of the public who told of their own experiences.
It was so successful and we know many others wanted to come too so we are trying to sort out another larger venue for a repeat performance. Pat has agreed to give another talk. Time and place will be notified when we have got it all sorted.
Thanks Pat for making it so interesting.
