Benfleet Community Archive First Birthday

A report of the Exhibition on the 10th March 2012

After their successful launch in March 2011 the Benfleet Community Archive held a first birthday exhibition at the Benfleet Methodist Hall on Saturday 10th March 2012.

We were honoured with the presence of the Castle Point Mayor, Cllr Jackie Govier, who stayed for several hours and took a keen interest in what we were doing

The exhibition was well attended and had many new displays since last year.

In addition we had two films to show in the “Benfleet Cinema” which was set up in side hall. They were:

  • I have just looked at (once again) the video of the first Exhibition – I so enjoyed the tour and seeing many faves that I recognised from the past, especially that, of my sister Jackie !! It is such a joy to me that she made many friends within your group and enjoyed contributing with her photos and other information too…..Keep the good work up !
