Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events
Wednesday 7th October
Annual General Meeting
The star event of the year! Please make every effort to come to our AGM. We will be reviewing the year’s events and voting on the committee to take us into the next year. As usual, we are looking for nominations for new committee members.
This is a club run by its members, for its members. We’re always keen to find new volunteers to help organise events. It is very important that as many of you as possible come and let us know what you think.
The meeting starts at 8:30pm in the Charles Peters Lounge of the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford.
Saturday 10th October
George’s Birthday Barn Dance
As many of you will be aware George turns 60 this year. To celebrate, he’s hosting a barn dance at Chignal St James Village Hall.
The plan is to bring a bottle and food to share, plus we’d like to have a whip round to help pay for the band, etc. Everybody’s welcome, and it would be helpful if you let George know if you’re planning to come.
To find it, take the A1060 (Rainsford Rd./Roxwell Rd.) out of Chelmsford; turn right at lights into Chignall Rd., after 1 mile turn left (Mashbury Rd) signposted Chignall St. James. The hall is on the left after almost 2 miles (grid ref TL665108, see map). Dancing from 7.30pm.
Wednesday 14th October
Join us to plan our trips for late spring and events for January & February. Come along even if you’re just curious about what we do.

A nine mile walk mostly through the splendid woodlands at the northern end of Epping Forest, once part of the vast royal hunting-grounds of the Forest of Essex.
