Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events
Wednesday 1st July
Pub Bike Ride – The Walnut Tree
Join Jim for a pleasant evening bike ride around country lanes to the North of Chelmsford, starting and finishing in Broads Green, taking in the Chignalls, High Easter, Pleshey, and Great Waltham, then returning for a welcome post-ride drink in the Walnut tree pub. Expected distance 14-15 miles. Meet at The Walnut Tree, Broads Green, CM3 1DT at 7:30 pm.
Wednesday 8th July
Pub Quiz – The White Horse
Get those brain cells ticking over with an evening of general (and less general) knowledge at The White Horse, Great Baddow, CM2 7HH. The quiz usually starts about 8:30 – 9pm and you pay a couple of quid to enter. The pub does nice food and Jim suggested meeting at 8pm if you want to eat as well.
Sunday 12th July
Coggeshall Bike Ride
Meet at the clocktower in Coggeshall (car park off Stoneham Street, CO6 1TT) at 10:30am for a gorgeous ride taking in Tollesbury and Abberton. About 32 miles with plenty of opportunities to stop for refreshments, although it might be wise to bring a picnic in case it’s busy!
Wednesday 15th July
Planning events for October and trips for next year. Please feel free to come along.
Wednesday 22nd July
Pub Walk – The Hoop, Stock
Meet at Stock Village Hall, CM4 9NF (left turn opposite The Bakers Arms), at 7:30pm where there should be plenty of parking. The walk is a bit less than 4 miles, so we should be at the Hoop for a drink by 9pm.
Wednesday 29th July
The Faroes are a rocky bunch if islands about half way between Iceland and Norway. Wild and incredibly scenic, the islands have been under the control of Norway, Denmark and even invaded by the British. Join us for an evening to learn more about this great destination (direct flights from Cambridge!).
Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
