Barbara, Kim and Ian Walden would like to thank everyone who sent cards and attended Mel’s funeral in August, it was much appreciated by the family.
The Club is returning to Conwy, a beautiful walled town on the north Wales coast, in Spring 2020 for a long weekend in early May. This was originally planned as a Bank Holiday trip – but then the Government switched the Bank Holiday from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May, to commemorate the end of World War II. Hopefully this change won’t upset too many plans as it is impossible to re-book all accommodation reserved for the Club. There are no large holiday cottages, so we are staying in several small properties. The cost for a place is £90. .There are only a couple of places in shared rooms still available – so please contact Jill before you book. The walking opportunities are wonderful, ranging from the coast, nearby Conwy Mountain, to Snowdonia. There are also lots of opportunities if the weather fails to co-operate! A deposit of £30 per head will secure a place, with the balance due 1st March 2020. Bookings to Jill – and if you want to pay by bank transfer, please contact Jill. Please let Jill know if you book accommodation independently. Conwy can be accessed by train.
The Club will be walking the entire Ceredigion Coast Path in west Wales from Friday 5th to Friday 12th June 2020. The Path runs from Cardigan to Borth and we will be based in holiday cottages in Aberystwyth, using a local coach company to enable us to walk linear stretches of the coast path each day. The Path has 5 day sections, giving us one day to explore the beautiful walks inland. Aberystwyth can be reached by train from Cambridge. The accommodation consists of 4 cottages. .Now FULL. Please contact Jill if you are interested in going on a reserve list. The accommodation cost is a very reasonable £140 per person for the week, with a deposit of £45 due now and the balance of £95 due on 1st April 2020. Please let Jill know if you book accommodation independently as we require numbers for booking transport.
