Wivenhoe Memories Exhibition - August 2016
Saturday 27th August to Monday 29th August 2016
John Stewart’s annual Wivenhoe Memories Exhibition was held in the Wm Loveless Hall, High Street, Wivenhoe on the bank holiday weekend Saturday 27th August, Sunday 28th and Monday 29th August. It was open between 10am – 6pm on all three days.
A great many people came and looked at the wonderful collection of photographs and other material about Wivenhoe which John Stewart has amassed over many years. Some people came especially this weekend to visit the show as well as visiting friends and relatives here. Some of these visitors came from as far away as Canada and new Zealand!
More people came to the exhibition than ever before, perhaps through better marketing of it this time in the local press. John was even heard on BBC Essex on the Monday before the exhibition!
The Hall always had people in it throughout each of the days. John was available to answer questions and other members of the Wivenhoe History Group supported the event making teas and coffees and showing the Wivenhoe History web site.
