A Message from the Essex Area Chair
Now that sunny May has made us all forget the wet and miserable winter we can all get out and enjoy the countryside. We have a full programme of walks covering nearly every corner of Essex. Even more reason to put those boots on, so get along to one or maybe more and better still invite friends, neighbours and children. Make it enjoyable - hopefully the lunch time stops at the pubs will reinforce the pleasures of walking. Lets hope the sun continues to shine!
Earlier this year the new Trek Essex group was successfully launched for people in their 20s and 30s looking to explore the county and make new friends. From the same stable comes yet another new group targeted, this time, at families with young children - named - Estuary Pramblers. Great name! Thanks go to Stewart Williams and Hike Essex for doing a fantastic job.
On a non walking more sombre note - Ramblers are subject to the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force on 25th May. This regulation gives individuals more control and protection of their data. All organisations are subject to this regulation. Behind the scenes we are working to make ourselves compliant however it is fair to say we are meeting many practical issues.
