I recently moved to Maldon and immediately looked for a knit and natter type group to join. I found the Kitsch knit and stitch group that meets in the lovely Oak House coffee shop in Maldon once a fortnight. It was quite daunting moving to a new town and joining new groups on my own. The group was very friendly and by the end of the first evening I had somehow "volunteered" to crochet a barrister's wig for a historic building in Maldon where visitors can go on guided tours and try on judges' gowns. The hall was used as a court room at one time and many locals were deported to Australia for quite minor offences. This included children. The original wig is kept in a special case and a crocheted version had been used for visitors to try, but it had recently been lost. I found a pattern on Ravelry which I adapted, choosing to use 100% British wool from the National Trust.
