This event is in two parts. You can join us in the morning for a scenic sea wall walk via East Tilbury Village and Coal House Fort. Or you can join us in the afternoon for a shorter walk around the town from Bata Memorial Gardens to Gobions Park. Or, you can join both, come in the morning and stay all day!

East Tilbury Primary school students lead a guided tour as we walk in the shoes of those who make our community great. We will arrive at Gobions Park to a musical performance from Kinetika Bloco and Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions to kick start the community celebrations.

There will be free music and dance workshops for all to enjoy. Bring a picnic and make a day of it!

If you’d just like to attend the community event at Gobions Park and not join any walks, this is free, open to all and doesn’t need to be booked, thanks to the generous support of Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions who welcome you to their Jubilee celebrations.

Walkers stop at the large stone Bata war memorial to listen to Ali Pretty

T100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.

Please note: You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen. Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however, Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes, especially unsupervised. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

WHAT TO TAKE

Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!

Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home.

Make sure you bring a packed lunch with you if necessary, and plenty to drink.

Toilet facilities can be accessed at the Bata Memorial Gardens before the start of the walk.

We encourage you to bring face coverings with you. You will not have to wear face coverings for the duration of the walk but you may wish to wear them when we enter indoor spaces on the route, although this is optional.

PHOTOS/ FILMING

We will be taking photographs and video of this event to promote and celebrate the project in print and online. If you do not give consent to be photographed or filmed, that’s absolutely fine, please let a member of the Kinetika team know on the day.
