Upcoming Events

Due to the latest change in Covid 19 Government guidelines, we have unfortunately had to cancel the Riverbank Clean-Up on the 20 September 2020. Thanks to everyone who had volunteered and hopefully we can arrange a clean-up in the near future and when it is safe to do so.

Great Past 2019 Events

Gin Fest Feedback - Congratulations to you all for organising such a successful event last night.  The planning and organisation of it was faultless. I am quite sure everyone had a good time. The different gins gave everyone something to talk about. The food was wonderful. The whole thing was great fun and did a great deal to help the profile of WivSoc as a fun and worthwhile organisation in Wivenhoe with many people there who were attracted by the nature of the event.

Wivenhoe Gin Fest…first of its kind in Wivenhoe and tickets were sold out within 10 days of going on sale – who’d have thought it! It was a great fun night, with guests finding out a little more about each gin that was served and having a chance to test and choose their favourite. The GinTelligence quiz caused quite a stir and the winning team bagged a bottle of the “best gin in the world” according to our Chairman! The raffle was popular too. Thank you all for coming along and supporting. We’ve heard such great feedback, we’ve agreed to do it again next year!

The Crabbing Competition….the annual Wivenhoe crabbing competition in August saw  beautiful weather attracting lots of crabbers along the quay. The winning crab was won by former winner Conall Kane with a crab over 83g! Prizes were presented by Wivenhoe Mayor Cllr Nick Tile. The money raised this year is being donated to Broomgrove Infants and Junior schools and Millfields Primary School

Wivenhoe River Boat Trip….was a huge success in early September, the sun shone, the boats were full and there was lots of banter and high spirits as the skippers manoeuvered their way from Alresford Creek, then up to the Roman River and past Rowhedge.
