Events Guide

Coffee Mornings - have become increasingly popular in Braintree and Chelmsford. We run weekly meetings in both locations. Most weeks we invite guest speakers to come along and give a talk to our members about the work that they do. Speakers at our events include local voluntary groups, charities, local authorities and other community organisations.

Attendees must be members of Chelmsford Star, and can join on the day. Members attending the coffee mornings will receive a voucher for £1 off any drink, and can purchase any other food and drink in the cafe. We will always pass a collection pot around for our volunteer speakers, so please bring some change to support the local causes. Coffee mornings start promptly at 10.30am.

If you are interested in being a speaker at one of our coffee mornings please EMAIL US to arrange. 

Fish 'n' Chips Quizzes  - These have become very popular and are held monthly alternating between our Braintree and Chelmsford stores. The cost is £3.99pp. This includes fish and chips for lunch and entry into the quiz. These start promptly at 11.30am.

Member Trips - These are organised by the Membership and the Travel department, and will need to be booked in advance. 

Member events are welcome to ALL members. No need to pre-book, just come along! If you're not a member, we can sign you up on the day for just £1.
