Centenary Autumn County Annual Meeting

The Civic Hall, Blackshots Lane, Grays, Essex RM16 2JU

Friday 13 October 2017

Doors open 9.30am for 10.30am – 15:30pm

We can now confirm that our guests for the Autumn County Meeting  will be the “West End Jerseys” and Steve Scruton.

Steve’s involvement in radio began in the mid 1970’s with Hospital Radio Chelmsford where he volunteered for over 15 years. During that time he became chairman for 10 years, was elected president, and continues to be an honorary member.

After working in studio production with local commercial radio, Steve was invited to join BBC Essex in 1988. He produced and presented the weekday afternoon show for 22 years along with production and presentation of weekend programmes. During that time he was a leading producer and presenter of the station’s outside broadcasts.

Steve worked to forge links between BBC Essex and outside organisations bringing the BBC closer to many local communities. He has presented countless stage shows and concerts both outdoors and within theatre, and has hosted numerous events for local groups.

This Jersey Boys Tribute Band is fast becoming one of the most-renowned acts of its kind in the UK.

In the last three years, The Jersey Boys Tribute Band has become the most sought after act within the corporate market. It was only a matter of time before Magnetic Theatre Limited, with their access to some of the West End’s finest voices, launched WEST END JERSEYS.

WEST END JERSEYS secured their first booking on 4th December 2015, and since then it has been absolutely non-stop. With the band booked up on nearly every Saturday for the rest of 2016, and already busy in 2017, you have to book fast to secure this incredible Jersey Boys Tribute Band.

WEST END JERSEYS features stars of the West End, performing the incredible music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. From SHERRY, their first No. 1 single, to chart-topping hits like OH WHAT A NIGHT, WALK LIKE A MAN, and BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY, the WEST END JERSEYS take you through one of the most recognisable back catalogues in music today.

Tickets (£15.00 per visitor – delegate can go for free) can be obtained using the order form in the back of your Essex News, or if you would like to call and order your tickets please call 01245 382233 or email us on admin@essexwi.org.uk.


There will be a cafeteria area available to purchase tea and coffee and as always it would be advisable to bring a packed lunch.


You will have the opportunity to undertake some retail therapy from the WI Shop with its “Centenary Items” as well as our old favourites Country Markets who will also be attending.


This meeting is open to one delegate (free of charge) from each Institute and visitors at £15.00

each. There is ample free parking.
