Wednesday 12th August

Committee meeting

Planning events for November and trips for next year. Everybody welcome.

The Church at Ulting (Tom)

Sunday 16th August

Canal walk

Dave P

We’ve walked the 14 miles of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation every year for over 20 years, but this year we thought we’d try a slightly different format. The plan is to drive to Maldon, catch the 9am bus to Chelmsford, and then walk back to Maldon. Chelmsfordians may wish to try for a lift home rather than mess about with buses, but buses run every 2 hours throughout the day.

Parking just off the High Street in White Horse Lane (CM9 5QP) is free on Sundays. Our bus stop is just outside the White Horse pub and the bus leaves at 9am, arriving in Chelmsford 9:35am.

Wednesday 19th August

Evening bike ride - Writtle


Meet in the Writtle village car park (just off the Green) at 7:30pm for a bike ride of about 12 to 15 miles, getting back to Writtle about 9ish for a nightcap (probably The Wheatsheaf)

Sunday 23rd August

Jim’s Birthday Barbie


It’s August, so the weather is bound to be perfect for a barbecue at Jim’s house from 2pm. Please bring things to barbecue and drink, and possibly something to sit on. Jim’s doing bread, salads and burning hot coals.

Wednesday 26th August

Pub Meal – The Running Mare


Join us for a tasty meal at 7.30pm at The Running Mare (CM2 8PN) in Galleywood. If the weather’s nice we might be able to sit outside. Let Jim know by 19th Aug if you want to come.

Friday 28th to Monday 31st August

Bridges Hostel, Shropshire


Bridges hostel is an old village school in a rural location in the Shropshire Hills, close to the Long Mynd and Stiperstones. The Shropshire Way footpath passes the hostel, and there’s a good pub just around the corner. The market towns of Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Bishop’s Castle are nearby.

Deposit £48 to book your place.

Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
