Group name: East Essex Friends
This group is a part of Essex Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks
East Essex Friends is part of the Ramblers who do short walks over distances of 4 – 5 miles covering the whole of the county and we are always delighted to welcome new members.
Walks are arranged twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays on a year round basis. All walks start at 10:30am and finish between 12:30pm and 1:00pm . Programmes are issued 3 times a year, each covering a 4 monthly period and details can be seen on this website. On most occasions we start and finish at a pub where we can pre-book lunch requirements. Staying for lunch is optional but the majority of attendees stay to enjoy this social aspect of the group.
The walk programmes include a variety of terrains and the leaders try to minimise road walking by keeping to field and woodland footpaths/tracks. As a group we walk at a speed that reflects the general good fitness of our members and we enjoy having new members along providing they feel comfortable with our normal pace.
We, also, try to maintain a strong social element within the group by arranging a variety of events which include days out, evening events, and weekends away.
