Rochford Festival

Another early start this Sunday - can everyone who is meeting up to get, or give, a lift to Rochford or just to travel down together, please meet at the club by 8.00 am. It's a 90 minute drive (if you don't get lost - see below) and we are aiming to arrive by 09.45 to have everything set up and ready by the 10.00 start.

For those who have not been to Rochford before, I would like to say that there are more recommended routes to Rochford than there are members of the club ..... and they all seem to end up somewhere other than Rochford Hundreds RFC! One year, we tried an alternative route only to find John Birch going to the same club down the same road but in the opposite direction! (It will be no surprise to know that we were both on the wrong road!).
Hopefully, this year we have it all sorted .........

The address for the club is:

Rochford Hundred Rugby Football Club, The Rugby Park, Magnolia Road, Hawkwell, Essex. SS4 3AD

and here's a better map to help everyone find it first time (I can supply it in more detail - 1 : 25000 - by email or at the club on Sunday, if you want) :

We also have two proven routes for you ... the simplest appears to be this one supplied by the AA which we managed to follow last year ...

But if you'd prefer, you can use this one which John posted last year, quoting directly from the Rochford Website (the really good thing about this one is we know it does work even if it feels a bit slow) :

"Leave M25 at junction 29. Join A127 in direction of Basildon and Southend
Continue until you reach Rayleigh Weir junction. Take slip road left, A129 towards Rayleigh.
Stay on this road through Rayleigh town centre, following signs for Hockley.
At traffic lights at the top of the High Street (Church on left), go straight on.
Follow the road for 2-3 miles, going straight ahead at three mini roundabouts.
At next mini roundabout (Spa Public House facing), take left fork.
Follow the road past the shops, under railway bridge (Greensward Lane), continue past college on right for 1-2 miles, then past Ashingdon Primary school on left, continue on this road towards Ashingdon going up the hill, then on for another 2-3 miles until you reach mini roundabout (shops on your right), turn right at roundabout ( Rectory Road).
Take the third turning on your right just before the traffic light (Magnolia Road).
This will become an un-made road continue down for about a half a mile, the club is on your right. "

As John said on the blog last year ..." So, no problem then"!
