Essex Village signs
A Message from the Essex Area Chair
The next time you are drawn to put your boots on, reach for a pair of secretors. Do not just fight your way through, cut the interlopers off. As the advert says "Every little bit helps". However there are things a pair of secretors cannot do.
The Ramblers are known for walking, but not so well known for keeping paths open for walkers. Many Groups in Essex have Working Parties which go out and clear paths, make bridges and stiles safe and waymark routes. Like walking you need no special skills to join, just the wish to help. It is fun and very satisfying when the work is inspected later. To be part of reopening a path is rewarding and to be in the open air is great for anyone.
Why not join one of the working parties you will be welcome and come away with a smile of satisfaction on your face.
