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

Newport Pembrokeshire--weekend away

17 Apr 2017 | West Wales Group

This weekend fell partly still in March, so, so early in the season, a trade off, of one hours rain on Friday afternoon for two days of full sunshine on Saturday and Sunday seemed good bartering on my part!!

Our April weekend away each year, usually after a seemingly very long winter, is always eagerly anticipated and well supported....
