The West Wales group is a friendly group with a good balance of both women and men that regularly join us.
Walk in a relaxed atmosphere, meeting new friends whilst enjoying the natural beauty of our wonderful countryside and get healthy exercise – just a few of the benefits of walking with us. Have a look at the photos on the left to see what a happy bunch we are!
We have a full annual programme - generally walking on the first weekend of each month on a Sunday, though a few throughout the year will be on a Saturday, particularly suitable for people wishing to travel by public transport. Each walk is usually around 6-8 miles in length, with the level of difficultly for each one clearly described on our event page. We are fortunate to have some of the UK’s best scenery virtually on our doorstep and our walks cover a huge area including Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Brecon Beacons and The Gower. Coastal paths, hill walks, historic landmarks and strolls along verdant valleys and warm companionship are all features of our events.
As well as the monthly walks, we usually have two weekends away walking, socialising and exploring a new area. In the summer there are also shorter evening walks and cycle rides plus other social events.
New people are always made welcome – no need to join until you have been on a few walks so you can decide if it is for you. We recognise it can be daunting to turn up on your fist walk without knowing anyone so if you would like to discuss ways we can make that easier for you, please get in touch.
The group's co-ordinator is Allyson Evans (known as Al). To contact this group email email@example.com

When Mark invited us to a day at the seaside how could we refuse??!!
21 of us assembled at Portobello House on a dry and bright day.
It was really nice to see Garry and Tilly come to say hello.As Garry is struggling with an injury at the moment, he walked just a little way with us before they had to turn back....
What a great way to start 2017.Whatever the reason, New Year and/or Resolutions, the mild weather or the fact that we hadn't had a full walk for 2 months, it didn't matter, it was just great to see so many people sign up for this walk in advance, and most of those turning up on the day, with some members appearing, that we hadn't seen for a while....
I had wanted to plan a GOC event over Christmas for a few years but didn't know
if others would be interested.
The hostel in Trefin, a small village in Pembrokeshire were offering a "too good to refuse" offer over Christmas so I advertised the event and sat back waiting for enough numbers, or not, to sign up....
This was the second year we had held our Christmas lunch in Laugharne and the second year that Laugharne---with a Dylan Thomas influence??!!---tried (but failed) to put a dampener on the day by producing some rather damp and misty conditions.

Russ had decided that we had unfinished business in Craig Gwladus having introduced us to this lovely country park two years ago on a previous walk of his.
We had only taken a direct route through then, and there were many more paths for us to explore this time....
