The Celebrate Leigh-on-Sea Together pop up exhibition and party took place on the 21st and 22nd April at the Leigh Community Centre.  Over 200 people came together with the Leigh Society, Royal British Legion, U3A, Essex Society for Family History, Leigh Camera Club, Figure of Eight students, Sit and Fidget Arts and local artists to celebrate what a great place Leigh-on-Sea is to live and to recognise the amazing work that is done year after year by our community organisations. 

Sir David Amess and the mayor of Southend-on-Sea, Councillor Judith McMahon, Cllr Julian Ware-Lane and Cllr Bernard Arscott were amongst those attending the event and Sir David gave a speech praising the spirit of Leigh-on-Sea residents and the work of the community groups.

 

We were delighted to welcome veterans from The Royal British Legion and children from our local schools who joined together to demolish cake and put the world to rights.

 

Bob O’Leary, Secretary of the Leigh-on-Sea Branch of The Royal British Legion said “We thoroughly enjoy being involved with these community events. We always meet lots of lovely people and this wonderful event was no exception”

 

Carole Mulroney, Leigh Society told us “Local societies and organisations are an important part of what makes Leigh so great, because it is a place where people can explore their interests and passions and come together to learn more about each other.”

 

Blade Education, Chair, Mary Forsdyke said “This has been a fabulous opportunity for Blade Education to learn even more about our talented community – we have to thank everyone gave us such great support and not forgetting all the lovely people who buy lottery tickets that make this kind of event possible.”
