Local History Group at Canvey U3A in 2011.

In the Spring of 2011 the first U3A (University of the Third Age) Group was established on Canvey Island. One of the many interest groups that were set up by the members was the Local History Group. Its first outing was to The Dutch Cottage where members were welcomed by John Downer from the Benfleet and District Historical Society which ran and still does run, the Dutch Cottage.

Those pictured in the first photo are: John Downer, Linda Carlane, Janet Palmer, Ernie and Iris Long, Audrey Wilson, June Mattacks, Janet Dolling and behind, Val Nicholls.

The second photo includes Janet Walden the Group Liason with John taking the pic.
