August monthly meeting postponed to September 12th and AGM will be held on October 10th

Our August monthly meeting is not being held due to holidays and lack of attendees. The next meeting will be the September meeting on Monday 12th September at J.J.Moons in Hornchurch.

This is also an early call and warning for our AGM which will be held as part of the monthly meeting on Monday 10th October an agenda for the AGM will be sent out to members in due course.

I attach the minutes from the last AGM as a reminder. The agenda is likely to be the same except the first item, our constitution, is now agreed and does not need to be on the agenda.

If anyone is interested in becoming an officer of our group please let one of the committee know.

We are looking for someone to take on the role of Cycling Infrastructure Advisor who will be our representative on LCCs Infrastructure Review Group.

Explore the south of Havering in a mixture of roads, parks and country paths. From Upminster Park we pass Hornchurch Stadium before heading up to the church which gave Hornchurch it’s name. After crossing the lake in Harrow Lodge we head towards Brettons Outdoor Centre and on to Beam Parklands. Then it’s back on the road and onto Rainham Marshes for our halfway stop and homemade cake. Leaving the RSPB we pass the Purfleet Royal Gunpowder Magazine before turning away from the river for a short section alternating road and paths. We cross the A13 and join the Mardyke Valley to Davy Down. We leave the path and head back to Upminster through Ockendon and past The Thames Chase Forest.
