THE Thames Estuary Yacht Club hosted their annual event for members with Southend West MP Sir David Amess among the guests.

The “At Home” gathering proved as popular as ever and the newly re-elected Member of Parliament for the area said he was delighted to once again be invited to the yacht club to hear about their recent achievements and to speak to its members.

The mayor of Southend, Fay Evans, was also in attendance at the event.
