Heritage Day brings Summer Season of events on Strand Wharf to a close

On Sunday 6th August, Leigh Town Council hosted the last of their Summer Season of Events at Strand Wharf. The Heritage Day hosted a number of stalls within a large marquee celebrating the wonderful history of Leigh and neighbouring towns, including exhibitions from Saxon King, Endeavour Trust, Thorpe Bay Angling Association, Rayleigh Museum, Essex Hundred, Blade Education, The North Thames FLAG and local author, Ian Yearsley.

The new event was organised by Leigh Town Council and supported by Leigh Society. It was accompanied by a pop up craft fair and entertainment from The Hoy Shanty Crew.

Visitors also enjoyed the Lower Thames Rowing Club’s annual Pier Race as well as the Thames Sailing Barge, Pudge, displayed on Victoria Wharf. 

Leigh Town Council and Leigh Society’s, Cllr Carole Mulroney said, "The day had been a great success with everybody showing a keen interest in their local area. Strand Wharf was the perfect setting, the sun shone and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
