We are inviting residents who would like to enjoy some gentle exercise and see the flourishing spring flowers in Hockley Woods to take part in their FREE ‘Spring Health Walk’.
Spring Health Walk Organised by The Council
The walk will be taking place on 25 April at 10:45am meeting in Hockley Woods car park and will last approximately 2 hours. Not only will walkers be able to marvel at the flourishing spring flowers whilst getting plenty of exercise, they will also get to hear some fascinating tales about the 10,000 year old woodlands and the enchanting folklore of ghosts and fairies that live within.
The walks, organised by the Council, are run by qualified Volunteer Walk Leaders and have proved successful in encouraging the community to get out and enjoy exercise.
Rochford District Council’s Woodlands Officer, Richard Bond, said: “These free walks are ideal for people who want to do a bit more exercise. They’re also a great opportunity for people to talk as they walk and make new friends.
There are lots of different walking routes available within our District so taking part is a great way to see some of the spectacular scenery we have on our doorstep especially now as the spring flowers are beginning to emerge”.
The flower bloom in Hockley Woods is an incredible sight and one not to be missed, so please feel free to let our Leisure Services Team know if you’re coming by calling 01702 318121″
