Well…it’s happened…the first Annual Renew Sponsored Canal Walk took place on Saturday…starting off at Heybridge Basin in bright sunshine and ending in the very beautiful and tranquil Guy Harlings Gardens again in bright sunshine…the only blot on the day was the tremendous thunderstorm and resulting deluge which soaked all of the walkers shortly after setting off. This was a good excuse to have a sit down at Paper Mill Lock Tea Rooms…salads, sandwiches and cream cakes soon revived them and they were off again.

At the finish our intrepid ramblers were treated to a barbeque, drinks and a chance to rest their feet…it was here that the draw took place to win the bumper hamper of luxury chocolates kindly provided by Royal London Asset Management…the winner being Julia Plunkett.
The canal walk is going to be an annual event…if you are interested in taking part, helping to organise fund-raisers or being kept up-to-date with any of the other events we’re planning please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
