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:
- The Benfleet Community Archive Launch – a video of our launch in March 2011.
- The Bunker and the Barrier – a video about Benfleet’s defences.
The following video is a record of the event on the day.
