POSTPONED - Blue Plaque for Clara James
May 19, 2022 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
We have been informed by the Town Council that there will be a CHANGE OF VENUE AND DATE. WATCH THIS SPACE.
A blue plaque was to have been unveiled at Smallgains Hall to the well known local JP, founder of Canvey’s Labour Party and founder of Canvey’s WI, Clara James, the date and venue are now being changed. We will update as soon as we hear the new details.
This event has come about thanks to the collaboration between the Town Council and Canvey Community Archive after the archive was approached by Graham Watts, a member of a 5 person committee appointed by the Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Jennifer Tolhurst, to oversee the erection of blue plaques across the county to commemorate the achievements of women.
