We're excited to announce Epping's first #WalkEpping week 12th-18th June
This inclusive event (which will incorporate #ActiveEpping*) is about encouraging as many Epping residents as possible to get outside, get moving and inspire each other. We'll also be pulling together as a community to help raise vital funds to regenerate Lower Swaines Recreation Ground for our young people, children and town.
*As part of the week long challenge we'll also be running #ActiveEpping with lots of local fitness/activity businesses offering special classes, some live on Lower Swaines Recreation Ground and some online via our dedicated #ActiveEpping channel. For all the details on #ActiveEpping click here
How can you join in?
It's really easy. Sign up below.
We want as many people to get involved as possible. You can walk, cycle, scoot or run but PLEASE take photos of our checkpoints and posters on the way.
The route will take you around Epping including Stonards Hill, Lower Swaines Recreation Ground, Epping station, St John's Church and The Forest Gate Inn.
You can do it all in one go, with friends or family, spread it out across the week or do it multiple times.
Share your pictures with us on social media tagging @epping_playground_association with the hashtag #walkepping we'd love to see how you choose to do it.
Schools and Young People's Organisations
If you're a school or young person's organisation please get in touch with the Epping Playground Association team of Trustees.
There's a special competition for schools and groups.
Epping Playground Association
We’re a local, parent volunteer led registered charity, working with Epping Town Council’s playground committee to help improve Epping’s play areas. Our initial focus is the Lower Swaines Recreation Ground in North Epping. We’ve agreed on plans and equipment and have a fundraising target of £120,000. We hope to achieve this by Summer 2022 in order to provide a much needed play area for local children and the community of Epping.
This is a community endeavour. As well as businesses who are supporting us on the course we've got generous prizes donated by lots of Epping local businesses.
All individual entrants who sign up to #WalkEpping will be entered into a prize draw, with winners selected on Friday 18th June.
