New Book

Mike & Sharon Davies are working on a new book entitled Rayleigh - The Postcard Collection. Publication is scheduled for November 2015.


Rayleigh Town Musuem - Update August 2015

Various Planning applications to Rochford District Council are proceeding well and we expect them to be approved by 10th September 2015. Documentation regarding the 25 year lease of the 1st Floor should also be completed and the lease signed by the middle of September. This will enable the first tranche (50%) of the Heritage Lottery Funding to be released.


The building work for Pizza Express should be completed by the end of September and Pizza Express will then start the internal works ready for the restaurant to open, probably by early December.


The Museum building work on the 1st floor will commence in October and it is planned to start the internal work in November.


Members of the Museum Friends Group, sponsors & benefactors will have an opportunity to visit the Museum before it is open to the public hopefully by January 2016.
