Saturdays walk from Llanvihangel Crucorney to Abergavenny has been cancelled due to a forecast of 60% – 90% probability of rain from 10am onwards.

The walk on Saturday 3rd September will now leave Cogan Leisure Centre at 8am and will be led by Barrie. The group will car share to Abergavenny to catch the 9.30 bus from Abergavenny to alight at the Skirrid Inn. We will then walk back to Abergavenny via 4 hills and involves about 3500ft of ascent over its 15 miles. The walk is therefore graded as strenuous. Further details can be obtainded from Barrie on 02920530753.

The first walk and clear will take place on Friday 26 August.

We know it is short notice but hopefully some of you will be able to make it and we only need a few hours of your time.

If you can come we will meet at 9.30am at the Barry Waterfront to share transport and it is our intention to start footpathing in the Wenvoe area.

So if you are up for checking, clipping and bashing your way through some local footpaths please think about coming along and with fingers crossed the sun will shine!

Dogs are very welcome on all these walks, but remember ….. Ramblers leave only footprints and hopefully come away with only lovely memories, so dog waste bags are a must and water for the mutts as well especially if it is hot!
