WALKING

T100 Dreaming walking festival

Ockendon & Little Belhus Country Park

Renewal

29 July 2021 11am – 2.30pm

Starts & ends: The Green, Ockendon

BOOK HERE

A guided walk circling Ockendon and Little Belhus Country Park, with dreaming workshops along the way with local artist Rebecca Brewer.

This nature-filled walk via Little Belhus Country Park revisited the insect habitat mandala created during T100 2020 to see it in full bloom. Taking inspiration from growing wild flowers on brownfield sites we imagined the future of this landscape that has been transformed from landfill and how it encourages us to think differently about the future of Thurrock.

Walkers from Beach of Dreams walk 32 joined this walk and then continued on their longer walk as we returned to Ockendon Town.

WALK SAFE

Read the Covid Safety information here.
Face coverings are essential for the event. You will not have to wear face coverings for the duration of the walk but they must be worn if you wish to enter any indoor spaces at the park , use public toilets or are travelling via public transport.

Bring a packed lunch with you and plenty to drink.

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 if necessary, and plenty to drink.

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. 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 one walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.

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.

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.
