Essex Police 4×4 Fun day

After ayear break for the Olympics and following the success of the 2011 event the Essex Police  4 x 4 fun day is back.  This year’s event is planned for Thursday  29th August.

We are a small group of Essex Police Personnel, who in our spare time organise an annual fun day out to Marsh Farm, South Woodham Ferrers for children with disabilities.

The day is aimed at children aged between 5 and 16 years who attend the many special schools and organisations around Essex.  We do open up the event to siblings (although places are limited).  From the feedback we receive this makes our day unique and enjoyable day out for all the family.

As in previous years, we cannot guarantee  places, but will do our very best to accommodate as many children as we can.  Should there not be enough spaces,  we have a reserve list should there be a cancellation Looking further ahead to next year, will place children not successful this year at the top of the list should they wish to come along next year. We would be looking to receive the applications by 18th June.  This date is an extension to the one published on the website.

In relation to the transport to Marsh Farm,  as per our leaflet, we will be providing busses to take the children to Marsh Farm, however we are aware there may be some children are unable to travel by bus.  We can discuss this with their parents/carers in order to try to accommodate all children.

To apply for a place please visit the Essex Police 4×4 funday website link
