Walk Report

Southend Millennium Way, Saturday 27th October 2018
19 walkers, 22 miles - leader Ron Williamson
A late start caused by train cancellation and a latter delay when some members made an unintended diversion, but we got there in the end. The promised wintry weather conditions did not really materialise and whilst somewhat colder than of late it remained dry throughout the day.
18 including one guest started out from Thorpe Bay to be joined at midday in Rochford by another. This well-known Sloper has apparently now decided to jump ship and become a Slinker (one who joins a walk other than at the start). 15 walkers reached Southend High Street as darkness fell so we had four Slopers but all for good reasons.
Never the less if you wish to avoid the risk of being identified in future reports remember: ”Never a Sloper or Slinker be”.
