13 July 1920 Mrs Martin of East Mersea School spent the afternoon in the school.
19 July 1920 School closed. I took a party of 47 including two Assistants and four Pupil Teachers on an educational journey to London. We left Mersea at 7am and travelled by bus through Tiptree, Kelvedon, Chelmsford, Ongar, Woodford, Tottenham and Holloway to Regent's Park. About three hours were spent in the Zoological Society's Gardens and then we drove through the streets for about two hours. The return journey was made via Stratford, Ilford, Brentwood, Chelmsford and Heybridge and Mersea was reached at 9.30pm.
