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.

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.

Mental Wellbeing and Walking

posted 27 Jan 2019, 05:20 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 27 Jan 2019, 05:21 ]

Thank you to everyone who took part in our Festival of Winter Walks and went walking over the last few weeks in the beautiful countryside. We’ve got another exciting opportunity for you coming up. 

This year at the Ramblers, we’ve teamed up with the mental health anti-stigma campaign Time to Change to highlight the wellbeing benefits of walking.

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet many people are still afraid to talk about it. Walking is a perfect way to start talking with others and opening up.

Time to Talk Day, on 7 February is an awareness raising day that is all about bringing together the right elements for having a conversation about mental health. 

Being physically active, connecting with nature and other people – the ingredients of a Ramblers group walk - are all things which have been shown to have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing. We know that walking with a Ramblers group is a lifeline for many people with mental health problems, so we are encouraging all our groups to have conversations about mental health on their walks during the first week of February.

We’ve created a top tips guide for walking and talking about mental health that you can download on our website:

Facebook Page

At long last I have worked out how to get our Facebook page viewable by people without a Facebook account (I had a wrong box ticked)
So now I will be making more use of the Facebook page and running down use of the web site to save duplication of effort.

Please take a look at the page by clicking here or on the FaceBook link in the left column.
