October 2012 – OldSchoolHymns:

The singing was interspersed with contributions from Pixie Weaver and Heather Haward, both having recorded their proud Mersea heritage by writing books. Everyone enjoyed the readings immensely, but for those who had grown up on Mersea the two authors stories and memories about family members and Mersea life were particularly poignant.

Heather’s book is unfortunately out of print, but we are investigating a reprint if there is a demand.

Pixie’s book, ‘From When I Can Remember’, was available on the night, signed by the author. Pixie kindly donated £5 from each sale that evening to the ‘Friends’ funds. Thank you.

November 2012 – MehalaWalks:

More than thirty people enjoyed the two walks organised by the Friends. Steve and Kathy Dines led the group to Ray Island and Howard and Angela Payne guided the East Mersea walkers. Each group returned to the party leaders’ homes for a welcomed lunch after their energetic efforts and what became a progressively blustery and wet morning.
