EAST ESSEX FRIENDS

Walking in Essex

Welcome to the East Essex Friends Website

East Essex Friends is part of the Ramblers who do short walks over distances of 4 – 5 miles covering the whole of the county and we are always delighted to welcome new members.

Walks are arranged twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays on a year round basis. All walks start at 10:30am and finish between 12:30pm and 1:00pm . Programmes are issued 3 times a year, each covering a 4 monthly period and details can be seen on this website. On most occasions we start and finish at a pub where we can pre-book lunch requirements. Staying for lunch is optional but the majority of attendees stay to enjoy this social aspect of the group.

The walk programmes include a variety of terrains and the leaders try to minimise road walking by keeping to field and woodland footpaths/tracks. As a group we walk at a speed that reflects the general good fitness of our members and we enjoy having new members along providing they feel comfortable with our normal pace.

We, also, try to maintain a strong social element within the group by arranging a variety of events which include days out,evening events, an annual lunch and weekends away.

New walkers are very welcome to join us as guests on two or three walks, but are required to join the Ramblers if they wish to walk regularly with the group and receive our programme.
