    Essex Rural Fund Spring Walk

    We are planning another in our series of enjoyable spring walks in aid of the Essex Rural Fund on 2nd April 2016 and would be very pleased if you were able to join us.  Experience has shown that these walks are usually accompanied by spring sunshine and good company: both enjoyed in attractive countryside with a few interesting features.  This year’s will be no exception.
