We are delighted that once again we are able to offer the opportunity on Sunday 8th September 2013 to cycle on this lovely local island that cannot normally be entered without a special pass.
The Essex Air Ambulance is a vital life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Service for the County. They are solely funded by the community and receive no direct Government funding or money from the National Lottery. It costs in the region of £250,000 every month to cover all aircraft operations and charitable costs, and having Doctors on board means we can provide enhanced critical care at the scene. The Doctors work alongside the Paramedics bringing two sets of skills to the benefit of patients, enabling life-saving procedures to be carried out that would not otherwise be possible so early in the treatment process.
Enjoy refreshments at Great Wakering Primary School where the ride starts and we hope that you will visit the Heritage Centre in the former Foulness Church of England Primary School built in 1846. Developed by the local residents it contains many fascinating exhibits showing the history of life in this timeless corner of Essex. Refreshments will also be available at the Heritage Centre and Churchend Post Office Store.
