Walk Report

London 25th Anniversary Walk: Southend, Saturday 12th September 2020
4 walkers, 7 miles - leader Ron Williamson
The South East Essex contingent celebrated in style the 25th anniversary of the London group with a walk into the sunset along Southend seafront from Shoeburyness to the town centre. The plan had been to celebrate at the pier head but the pier opening times had been curtailed, a decision made earlier in the month but not updated on their website when checked the previous weekend. Nevertheless true to London tradition we indulged in chips and ice cream, before moving slightly upmarket and raising a toast of Pimms and lemonade to the good future of the group.
