The History behind the name Albert Edward Hall

The Albert Edward Hall Community Centre is named after the first lifeboat which served Clacton on Sea between 1878 -1884. She was 34 feet long and 8 feet 3 inches of beam and rowed 10 oars double banked.

In honour of all the brave men and women who have, or are, serving as volunteers in the RNLI our main hall and larger room are named after two of the founders of the RNLI namely, Sir William Hillary and George Hibbert. As a mark of gratitude from the community of Bockings Elm we have named one of our function rooms after Philip Clark, the volunteer Chairperson of the Albert Edward Hall.
