OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS ARE CHANGING TO LEIGH COMMUNITY CENTRE AS FROM 1ST NOVEMBER 2022 AND TO THE FIRST TUESDAY IN THE MONTH
MEETINGS COMMENCE AT 2.30. DOORS WILL OPEN AT 2.00.
Our monthly meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of the month at
Leigh Community Centre
71 – 73 Elm Road
Leigh-on-Sea SS9 1SP.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DOORS ARE NOT OPEN UNTIL 2.00PM. Access to the hall is via the ground floor café so if you do arrive early stop and chat with friends over a cuppa in the café.
Meetings will usually start with notices and any items of group news, followed by a guest speaker. Refreshments are available afterwards so members can chat to friends or maybe the speaker.
There is no charge for attendance and not only that but you can get a cuppa at the end all free of charge; so pretty good value.
There are small pay-and-display car parks in Elm Road (at rear of Leigh Community Centre/Police Station) and off North Street (east of the Wesley Methodist Church) but these do fill quickly. Parking on nearby streets is limited so please check local parking restrictions.
If you have any suggestions for speakers, please contact our Speaker Secretary by clicking the link.

Making and Playing Guitars.
February 7 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
7th February 2023
Speaker Iain Peel on Making and Playing Guitars
You may remember me from the talk I gave last year about Southend Pier.
Well I’m back to bore you again.This time about guitars and my
experiences building them. I have been playing the guitar for
over 50 years and I’m still not very good at it !Can’t tell you how many guitars I
have owned in that time. In the last couple of years I have been assembling guitars from
kits and recently finished building a spanish guitar.
I would like to take you on a short journey looking at guitars and my experiences
in the last two builds. I’ll bring along some for you to look at and if you are a player
then give them a go ! My other interests are Photography, Drones and anything mechanical
that moves and makes a noise. The bigger the better especially if it has wings !
I am looking forward to meeting you all again and hopefully giving
you an interesting insight into Guitars and building them.
Doors open 2pm; meeting begins
