The Octopus Ahoy! Auction  is on the horizon

Fancy taking your favourite octopus sculpture home with you and making a difference to worthy Tendring causes?

The Octopus Ahoy! sculptures have left the streets of Tendring to await the Octopus Ahoy! auction, where they will raise money for the Essex Community Foundation and the Tendring Community Fund, before sailing away to their new forever homes. This very special event is sponsored and hosted by Milsom Hotels and the auction will be expertly managed by Reeman Dansie.
