From 3rd January 2024 there will be a monthly drop in on the first Wednesday of every month instead of weekly.  This will take place at Sue's Cafe on Furtherwick Road from 11am-12noon.

Background

The Environment Agency will be renewing and improving the erosion protection on the seaward face of the tidal defences, known as revetment. This will take place along a 3km stretch between Thorney Bay and the Island Yacht Club as shown on the map below.

More information can be found regarding the scheme on the website https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/east-anglia-c-e/canvey-southern-shoreline-project/
