Conwy, north Wales: Friday 1st to Monday 4th May 2020 (3 nights)

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 D-Day operations. Hopefully this 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 shared room is £90 – but single occupancy of a double may incur a supplement, depending on just how many people 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. B walks’ leader sought. Bookings to Jill – and if you want to pay by bank transfer, please contact Jill.
