The Southend Branch was formed in 1988 although there had been a branch in the Southend area since 1974. After Colchester, Basildon and Brentwood Branches closed we changed our name to Southend & Essex Branch.
The Southend & Essex Branch meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 10am until 12noon, at 59 Silversea Drive, Westcliff. Transport can be arranged by Dial A Ride or taxis. London Road A13 bus route stops only five minutes walk away.
