We hop on to support Hares About Town – Hares About Town is an extraordinary public art event which will take place from Thursday 1 July 2021 until Sunday 12 September 2021 and aims to raise vital funds for Havens Hospice.

Sad news – They have removed the bulbs, roses and benches from Gunners Park. Apparently it was never meant to be a permanent fixture/feature just a work of art!

HUB151 in West Road Shoebury is slowly coming back to life and would love to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer their services for as little or as much time you can spare. It is a wonderful place to work with lovely people coming in and out and groups and projects starting to take shape again. If anyone has woodworking skills and would like to work in the workshop you will be most welcome to help volunteers already working in there.

At long last we are in a position of getting the community radio up and running. We have been held up hugely during the last few months with items needed to kit out the studio being out of stock and taking weeks to get here. Also the team has sadly lost two of its most important members to illness which again has held up the process. If there is anyone out there who would like to be part of the radio team in any capacity, we would love to hear from you. Having experience with the initial setting up will be amazing ……. If you would like to get in touch, we would love to hear from you. This is a hugely exciting project and one that will be an integral part of our community, any ideas, comments, suggestions will be gratefully received…Contact:
