About our society

Jaywick Local History Society is a friendly group with members sharing a common interest in the history of Jaywick and the local area. We enjoy finding out about our seaside village in the past, and sharing the information that we find.

We hold meetings every other month with talks by expert speakers, as well as running special events and occasional outings. We would love for you to join us!

Annual Membership Fee is £5.00 which entitles you to free entry to all of the talks and events.                                      Contact Membership Secretary 01255 479981

Jaywick is a fascinating village with an interesting 90 year history. Originally conceived as an upmarket holiday village in the 1920’s where people would drive from London on a Friday evening, enjoying golf, tennis, swimming, putting and possibly dancing and then drive back refreshed and ready for a week’s work.
