Gay Outdoor Club
The activity club for gay men and women and their friends

West Wales

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 westwales@goc.org.uk

Allt y grug, Ystalyfera north of Swansea

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....

National Botanic Gardens followed by scrummy lunch

6 Feb 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

These ad hoc, spur of the moment events, in addition to our regular monthly walks turn out really well, as indeed this one did, encouraging people to join us who might, for whatever reason not be able to come to one of our longer walks at that particular time....

Ferryside in Carmarthenshire

15 Jan 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

Our first adventure of 2018 turned into a sunny affair down at the seaside at Ferryside in Carmarthenshire.

15 people assembled ready to start the New Year off in style.

Part of this walk involved a stroll along the beach which could have been done at the beginning or the end....

Twixmas weekend away at Trefin Hostel, Pembrokeshire

5 Jan 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

This was our second Twixmas event at this hostel in the lovely village of Trefin, Pembrokeshire.

A mixture of people attended, some who came last year and some new ones.

Overall the weather could have tried harder and been kinder to us but all the other arrangements went off well and everyone enjoyed the fantastic scenery not letting any wind or rain spoil our Twixmas break....
