Event Reports from West Wales Group



15 Aug 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

The weather forecast for the day of this walk showed rain passing over and then a dry but cloudy day. We had some rain travelling to the start of the walk and also dry bits too but when we got to the car park for the meeting place, the rain hammered down.

A lot of us sat in our cars peeping out now and again to see if anyone had surfaced.

At the allotted start time we assembled in the car park quickly making for a wooden shelter to keep dry.

It was still raining so hard that a few people decided they did not want to get wet and so turned around and drove home, something that I can't remember ever happening before....

Llyn Llech Owain near Cross Hands

6 Aug 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

This was classed as an easy walk or stroll, and added as an extra event to our West Wales programme, so that as well as our usual group members we were hoping to get some new members to join us too.

As it happened, included in the 11 people who came, we had 3 people join us who were new to this group.They were all given a warm welcome and they all seemed to enjoy and I hope they join us again soon.

This Country Park is made up of some very lovely green paths plus some harder surfaces and almost all on the flat so ideal for everyone....

Saturday afternoon walk at Gwynfe followed by evening social and Sunday walk at Gwaun Cae Gurwen

16 Jul 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

Two years ago Colin and John arranged a short walk in their village followed by a social in their village hall which was a huge success.

They promised a repeat 2 years later and true to their word put in a lot of hard work again to ensure a repeat performance.

This time the walk was a longer one of over 6 miles. 11 people assembled for the walk on a scorchingly hot, humid and airless day. We set off along the local country lanes and onto a lovely green path.

The views were magnificent, particularly of the surrounding hills and mountains....

Llanerchaeron near Aberaeron

6 Jun 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

It was very pleasing to see 11 people turn up at Llanerchaeron for the start of this walk given this was further west than we have walked for some time.

So, many thanks to everyone who came, rewarded for driving that extra mile or so, with a fabulous walk on a quite magnificent bright and sunny, blue skied summer day.

As we met in the car park, the greenery all around hid the Llanerchaeron house from our view and so we had to be patient and wait until the very end of the walk to see the John Nash designed mansion, which includes a walled garden and working farm....
