Christmas Eve walk

Thanks Gordon. The first part is my own variation as I arrived 30 minutes late although at 7.1 miles it can't be that much different...

Thanks to Helen for today's walk.
It started as 6 miles, then she said 7. But then it went back to 6 again after a vote.
I clocked 7.5 miles!...

Urgent - Walk on Tuesday 10th Dec

posted 9 Dec 2019, 07:18 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 9 Dec 2019, 07:18 ]

Please send this email on to as many members as possible.

I pre-walked my route at the end of the week and have discovered a couple of issues.

The meeting point was the village hall. There is new signage threatening clamping for unauthorised parking. I tried to contact the Canewdon Community Association but I didn’t get a response. I suggest you all park as usual in the village and we congregate in the car park behind The Anchor at 10am.
One section of the walk is obstructed by a broken stile and two chained gates. I am not sure if everyone in the group is confident in clambering over them so I have devised a detour. Unfortunately it adds to the length of the walk. Be prepared to do 7 miles. It also requires a slightly longer period on a road. If anyone has reflective clothing please bring it along so that the group is clearly visible to traffic, especially if the weather is gloomy.

Please don’t be put off. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Dear All
It is with great sadness I have to inform you that the Chairman of the South East Essex Group, Rod Birks, died on the 4th November.
Rod was a member of the group from 1997, serving for many years as Treasurer then becoming Chairman.
I have no doubt,because of his long association with rambling, numerous Rochford & Castle Point members will have known Rod. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Rod's funeral wil be held at the Southend Crematorium on 21st November at 3.20pm. I will be attending.
