Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events
Wednesday 1st May
Join Jim for a bit of intellectual stimulation at the Riverside Inn in Victoria Road, Chelmsford. Registration for the quiz is at 8pm, but food is available if you want to get there a bit earlier.
Wednesday 8th May
We’ll be planning Wednesdays for August and trips away for mid winter.
Wednesday 15th May
Burma Slide Show
Join us for highlights of Doug’s recent trip to Burma (or is that Myanmar?), “an untouched treasure trove of exotic and varied attractions”.
Sunday 19th May
A walk through the heart of Essex, from Chelmsford to Heybridge Basin, along the towpath of the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation. The walk is about 14 miles.
We’ll probably stop for tea in the afternoon at Paper Mill lock, and finish with a pint at The Old Ship, but please bring sandwiches for lunch.
Meet at the Heybridge Basin Daisy Meadow car park (grid ref TL870069, see map) at 10:00am (Heybridge Basin is signposted from the B1026 between Heybridge and Goldhanger). We’ll leave most of our cars at Heybridge Basin, and organise lifts to Chelmsford, to walk back to Heybridge.
Wednesday 22nd May
Pub walk - Boreham
Meet outside the Queen’s Head, next to the church, in Church Road, Boreham at 7:30pm for a 4 mile walk out to Papermill Lock and back to the pub for a night cap. We should be back before dark, but best bring a torch just in case. Parking at the pub is a bit limited, but there’s plenty of parking round the corner in Plantation Rd or Juniper Rd.
Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
