Anglian Coastal

The volunteers of the IET Anglian Coastal Network organise events and other activities covering engineering and technology topics for engineers and also members of the public who have an interest in engineering and technology. Even if you’re not a member of the IET, you’re still welcome to join us at any of our events.  

We cover the areas of both Norfolk, Suffolk and north Essex will organise activities for these areas. Over the past year we have organised a large number of highly successful Webinars as face-to-face meetings have not been possible. However, when we are able to resume face-to-face events, we will look to run these in venues in Norwich and Ipswich and we will aim to retain many of the benefits of the Webinar format where practical. We will also organise occasional visits to places of engineering interest across the entire area too. 

Contact us

We’re always looking for ideas and suggestions for events and visits etc so if there is something you would like us to organise, or to help you to organise, please get in touch:

An important message from our local Foothold representative (Dorrie Giles): “We’re here to make sure engineers and their families never face life’s challenges alone. Whatever the problem, big or small – you’ll find tools to make your life better right now.”

Now that the IET no longer keeps you up-to date with Foothold services or collects your donations to Foothold with your IET subs, please sign up to receive regular updates directly from Foothold. We all hope that we never need Foothold's help, but unfortunately life can throw the unexpected at us.  To sign up please click on the link: Contact Foothold
