Welcome to the Essex Area of the Ramblers
Essex Village signs
Message from the Area Chair
This is on our website and was included with the February Essex Area Update. We would welcome your comments, additions and observations.
The fact that Area is making a submission on behalf of the Groups, does not exclude any member detailing their own particullar concerns on the Survey, the link to this can be found of the Rambler website.
It is important that we all take this opportunity to make the case for change. I have listened to many, many comment on what is needed, now is the chance to repeat these to the people who can make it happen.
Network Rail continue with their plans to close 63 crossings in Essex and the Ramblers have set up an online petition for everyone, members or not to record their disagreement with the proposed closures. The petition can be found HERE. You have untill the end of March to fill this in. The proposed statement covering the main issues can be found HERE. It is a simple matter to complete the petition, please support this and the Ramblers efforts to stop the destruction of many path used for walking before railways existed.
Please get your friends, your family, anyone with an interest in walking, to filling in the petition. Network Rail can not be allowed to do this.
Alan Goffee - Chair Essex Ramblers
