Pulse Bar in Cardiff did a fantastic job of catering for 25 people at our Christmas Social and worked hard to make the event the success it was.

After some initial great views and meeting the local Hunt, the weather closed in as we covered the expanse of the common, but improved as we descended. This was a very enjoyable walk well led by the able Huw....
