Two Essex rivers and a new Chair wanted - this week with London LDWA

London LDWA heads for Essex this Saturday, with our Chair, Peter, leading a circular based on Roydon and taking in the Ways Harcamlow and Hertfordshire and the River Stort towpath. All the details below.

Here's a puff for our Twitter account too. @LondonLDWA now has 118 followers but more are always welcome. Social media enthusiasts - why not give us a follow and tweet your walking news, views and photos?


Could you be LDWA London's new Chair? 


Now that our Chair Peter Aylmer is nearing the end of his three-year term, it's time to start thinking about a replacement. Could you be that person? The Chair's main task is to run our committee meetings - about five or six a year - and the AGM. Peter says: "I've thoroughly enjoyed chairing the London group - you're a friendly bunch! - and it's meant a lot to me to serve London during the last three years, with events such as the launch of the Capital Challenge and the Silk River walks to look back on. But now it's time to move on, and I'm only to happy to talk to anyone interested in the role about what it entails." 


So to find out more, email Peter at or see him on Saturday - he's leading this weekend's group walk.
