Ramblers CEO comes to Essex
On Tuesday 27th June members of Uttlesford Ramblers and others from across Essex were joined by Vanessa Griffiths, CEO of the Ramblers, for a walk starting from Matching Green. Although the weather was a bit showery a good walk was enjoyed getting to the Fox at Matching Tye in time for lunch before returning to the start. Vanessa chatted to everyone, listening to any ideas from members and telling us what plans she had for the Ramblers in the future.
Alan Goffee, Chair of Essex Ramblers, received a message from her the next day saying : " I just wanted to say a genuinely heartfelt thank you for inviting me to join you and your lovely colleagues and friends on Tuesday. Please can you pass on my thanks to them all for their friendly welcome and for sharing their wisdom with me so freely. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I came back re- energised and full of their ideas".
The walk was a great experience for all and left members feeling they now had some connection to those who run the organisation at a higher level.
