The Walking Group meets meets on the first and third Thursday of the month, meeting in Gilwern car park at 10 am unless otherwise stated on the News page.

Walkers should come appropriately prepared for walking, with suitable footwear, waterproofs, etc, as the weather can change quite quickly on the hills. They are also expected to take reasonable care for their own safety when walking with the group.

Contact Walter Daw by email for further information:
