APOLOGIES TO ANYONE WHO HAD SIGNED UP, OR PUT IT IN THEIR DIARY, BUT DUE TO A COLLEAGUE OF OUR WALK LEADER HAVING A BROKEN ARM, SHE IS HAVING TO STEP IN TO PROVIDE WORK COVER.  Watch this space – hopefully we can re-schedule.

 

July’s going to be an action-packed month for the Society – Cwmystwyth Mines visit on 14 July (see the Event listing in the Members’ Area for full details and to sign up) and four days at the Royal Welsh from 22-25 July flying the flag to the world (more volunteers to man the stall would be most welcome!).

But in between we have our July walk, from Dylife up and around the Llwybr y Ceirw to the Twymyn Gorge to admire the waterfalls.
