OS Grid Ref Finder

posted 30 Jul 2017, 10:12 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 30 Jul 2017, 10:12 ]

Walk leaders. When putting on a walk it is very important to get the correct OS grid reference to your walk or meeting place to make sure everybody can find it.
Knowing that this can be a problem I have recently found this website
All you need to do is zoom into the required spot and right click on your mouse. The six figure grid reference required for the Ramblers website will then appear (with a lot of other data) on your screen.

Walk to Remember

posted 21 Jul 2017, 11:42 by Ralph Burtonshaw

On Sunday 10th September, it is the 10th anniversary of our annual Havens to Havens Walk.
You can choose between either a 5 or 10 mile route, starting from Little Havens Hospice in Thundersley at 11am and walking through Hadleigh, Old Leigh and along Chalkwell’s coastline.
You will then be invited to join us for a delicious cream tea at the midway point, Fair Havens Hospice in Westcliff.
You can then either get the free bus back or you can walk the further 5 miles back to Little Havens.
Tickets for this event are £10 for adults, and £5 for children between 3-12 years.
All ticket prices include the cream tea and your entry fee helps us to raise vital funds for both Fair Havens Hospice and Little Havens Hospice.
Please note that pushchairs/wheelchairs are permitted for this event, and dogs on leads are welcomed.
Thank you in advance for your help – please don’t hesitate to get in touch on 01702 220337 if you have any questions or would like any more information.
The easiest way to sign up is online here and we also allow sign ups on the day at Little Havens from 9:30am.

Sunday 11th June Walk

Ted unfortunately will not be leading this walk. The walk is from Two Tree Island to Hadleigh Castle. Instead of looking for a replacement leader may I suggest you go on South East Essex's walk to the same destination albeit starting at School Lane car park, Benfleet. Simon's walk also starts at 10.00
