We have coach outings once or
twice a year, in spring and/or autumn to a variety of
destinations, up to a maximum of 100 miles away.
The price of tickets is kept as low as possible,
since these are non-profit making day-trips - the
objective is to break even. The party usually
splits up into two groups - those who wish to go on a
walk (usually no more than 6 miles) and those who prefer
to "do their own thing" and visit a place of
interest - it may be a stately home or a historic town.
Blue-Badge guided walks are now being included and have
proved to be informative and popular.
The coach picks up and returns
passengers to the Hawkey Hall, Woodford Green, or outside
the Iceland store, Gants Hill
Over the years we have visited
Rye and Romney Marsh, Southwold, Canterbury and
Colchester, the Cheddar Gorge, Clacton, Winchester,
Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, St Albans,Oxford and
Broadstairs, Southwold, Salisbury, Ely, Chatham Dockyard
and Maldon Regatta. Suggestions for fresh destinations,
and volunteers to lead walks once we've arrived, are
always most welcome.
Early booking is advisable when
these outings appear in our regular
