Welcome to the Essex Area of the Ramblers
Essex Village signs
Message from the Area Chair
With Christmas behind us we know we face mud, more mud and the Area AGM. This will be held at Stock Village Hall on Saturday February 11th starting at 1000 hours.
Our Speaker will be Elle Bullivent who is working on the Coastal Path project and the Network Rail campaign at Central Office. With these subjects close to our hearts.
I am sure we will have an informative and interesting talk and discussion. A buffet lunch will be provided and Graham Hopkins will lead a walk in the afternoon.
We will also discuss the Ramblers request for views on improving support for Groups and Areas. Please set aside the date. I look forward to seeing you.
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. 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.
