It is with great sadness that we pass on the news of the loss of our dear friend Annie Vincent. Annie was a huge support for us over the years and regularly made cakes cookies and pies for our cake stalls at various fairs to help raise much needed funds for the club. She was always there with a ready smile and willing hands. The funeral will be held at Greenacres, North Weald on Thursday 19th April at 11am. We hope you all have the chance to come and say goodnight x

FUNERAL DETAILS FOR ANNIE

 

GreenAcres Epping Forest is easily accessible, the park is located just outside North Weald Bassett, close to the M11.

Approaching the park from the M11 – exit at junction 7 and take the A414 (Canes Lane), following the signs to North Weald Bassett. At the junction with the B181 (High Road) turn right and continue to North Weald Bassett where you will find Kiln Road second on your left after the Kings Head public house. The entrance to the Park is under the railway bridge on the right hand side of the road.

Approaching the park from the Chelmsford area – take the A414 signposted Harlow. Continue on through Ongar until you reach the Talbot roundabout, junction with the B181 signposted North Weald. Turn left onto the B181, through the village. After passing the Kings Head public house on your left, cross the mini roundabout and Kiln Road is the next turning on the left. The entrance to the Park is under the railway bridge on the right hand side of the road.

Approaching the park from Epping – at the north end of the town, turn right at St. Margaret’s traffic lights onto the B181 (signposted North Weald).
