The Thurrock Acorns Amateur Radio Club came about almost by chance when the founders, Nick G4HCK and Gordon M0WJL (ex-2E0ELI), meeting for the first time a day or two after their first ever radio contact, sat down over a coffee near the end of 2013 to discuss plans for doing some radio work with the young people of a local primary school. Gordon mentioned it was a shame that there was no local club since the original Thurrock Amatuer Radio Club closed many years before and Nick suggested Gordon start one. A challenge he couldn’t turn down and the new club had it’s first monthly meeting on the 21st of January 2014.
