Latest Group News

Essex Bus News:

The planned publication date of each magazine is shown in the previous issue.  We will only post information here if there is a significant delay.


Our printers have now returned to work and all issues of the magazine have been posted to members.  We expect to continue to publish printed copies each month from now on, despite the present pandemic.



We have a FaceBook page, follow us at  Visit us there for Group news, publication dates for Essex Bus News, our twice-weekly “From The Archives” photo features and lots more!

The FB page is updated regularly, far more often than this web site.
