North Wales Group joined up with the diverse and impressively active ‘Out and About’ organisation for a walk to the top of Snowdon on Sunday 16th March during the Irish group’s St Patrick’s Weekend holiday in Wales.
About 30 members of both groups reached the summit in heavy cloud conditions, but it was reasonably mild and dry for most of the day....
