Women only weekend at Winchcombe

25 Apr 2018 | Women Group

This was the third year of our women only weekend away.Numbers are restricted to 30 and the event was fully booked.

Lecky had an idea for this to be in The Cotswolds in 2018 but unfortunately she was unable to join us at the last minute.It turned into a great suggestion.

I picked Winchcombe out, not knowing anything about it and never having been there.

I found out that it is classed as the walkers capital of The Cotswolds.

I had gone there in February to reccie the walks and found it to be a most charming Cotswold town....

Allt y grug, Ystalyfera north of Swansea

10 Feb 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

This was a case of lights, camera, and action when a filming crew, well two people actually, Ioan the producer/director and Aled the cameraman, joined us from local tv station S4C.They had interviewed one of our members (amongst others) for a programme they were doing about gay men and how their lives have been impacted since the 1967 legislation.When they found out he was a member of GOC they thought some action footage--they'd obviously heard that the West Wales group was an action packed one!!--to accompany the programme....
