Due to an error on my part (I blame the computer) a walk was missed off the program.
This is for October 1st. 

I have uploaded a revised program (Version 2) so only those who were quick off the mark in downloading will have a problem and need to download again.

Unfortunately the error wasn't spotted in time to get the revision into the printed copy so you will need to add it for yourself.

I understand that Ron had "a funny turn" on the walk last week which left a number of people concerned.
I have tried to phone Ron but I couldn't get past his phone security system, which is apparently designed to stop undesirables like myself contacting him, but I have spoken to Eddie who tells me that all the tests have proved negative and they are unable to find anything wrong.
We look forward to seeing Ron back with us on our walks soon. It's just not the same without him.

Walk 28th May.

posted 7 May 2019, 00:32 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 7 May 2019, 00:34 ]

We will now have a walk on Tuesday 28th May. Chris Lewis is happy to do the walk he led on the 18th December but in reverse. Its starts from the car park at the end of Brook Road, just off Benfleet High Road, postcode SS7 5JQ.

Couple of points to mention, it starts at 09:45 and refreshments and toilets at Hadleigh Park Hub.

Please, if possible, pass on this information to our regular non members who attend our walks.
