Why are we asking for your email address?

We ask for your email address so we can update you on Memory Walk and share fundraising hints and tips. To register online you will need to provide an email address. If you have difficulties registering, please call us on 0300 330 5452.

With every step you will help change the lives of people affected by dementia – now and in the future. Register yourself or a team, and start fundraising today!


Sign up and walk all over dementia today. Your £10 entry fee supports us to organise the day, but unfortunately it won’t beat dementia alone. This is why your fundraising is so important. An average Memory Walker raises over £160 each, so we suggest you set this as your fundraising target. But whatever your target, and whatever you raise, you will be changing the lives of those affected by dementia!

We’ll be here to support you every step of the way and you’ll receive a pack with everything needed for the event, including your Memory Walk t-shirt.

Thinking about taking part as a group? Invite your friends and family to join you by sharing the link and team code sent in your confirmation email. Team members can set individual fundraising targets, or you can fundraise together and work towards a team total.

Meeting point

Memory Walk will start and finish in the event site at Hylands Park, which is located near to Mauro’s café, opposite Writtle Gate car park. Please note, this area is on grass.

Here, you’ll get ready to walk alongside hundreds of others, raising funds to defeat dementia. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree, and see it blossom throughout the morning.

Walk routes

There are two Memory Walk routes – you choose which to walk on the day of the event. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change, and suitable footwear is recommended. 

The shorter 2km walk is a gentle stroll through the ornate Victorian Pleasure Gardens which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages. This route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs with assistance.

The longer 7km walk is a little more challenging, and will take you around the park, weaving through grassland, walking through open fields and woodland paths. This route is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to the nature of the pathways.

Getting there

Event Parking is available at the Writtle Gate entrance of Hylands Park only, off Greenbury Way - please use postcode CM2 8FS. There is no parking from the London Road entrance. Follow signs for Memory Walk on the approach to the venue. Please arrive in good time to avoid queues, and note that parking is on grass.

The park is a 25 minute bus ride or 55 minute walk from Chelmsford town centre and train station. For more information you can use the public transport journey planner. Please consider the most sustainable method of transport, or car share where possible.
