The dates for this event have been amended and this will now be going ahead on 8th-10th July 2022. Hopefully this will give you all time to plan this trip away for next year, which like you I am looking forward to finally getting away with like minded people.
Stay safe and take care, till next year! Kat
Update[masked] Unfortunately due to the pandemic and after much consideration I am sad to announce that this event will not be going ahead this year. To stay at Rhossili Bunkhouse during the Covid-19 pandemic, all members of the group must be part of an extended household as defined by Welsh Government Guidelines, which we are not. I also believe it would be unsafe to meet up in such a large group indoors, thus potentially spreading it between us and taking it home to our families. I certainly don't want to be responsible for putting people in that position. Therefore, I am in correspondence with the manager to reschedule this event to next year. Once I have the correct dates I will amend the event to reflect the new arrangements. Hopefully this will free up that weekend this year should you have any other plans and can look forward to attending this next year instead. Thank you all for your patience under these circumstances. Kat -------------------------------------------------------- Update 31/05/2020 So to keep things simple by not adding an extra day and sorting out extra payments etc, I'm going to reschedule this event for the 9th- 11th July 2021 so put it in your diaries :) Please check that those of you on the event can still make it and those of you that have booked a campsite elsewhere will also need to change your dates. If you cannot make these dates please let me know and I will organise the "Going List" Many thanks, Kat -------------------------------------------------------- Come with me to explore the Gower this summer and go on a circular hike round the peninsular taking in the breathtaking views of the sea. Fun Fact: In 1956, Gower became the first area in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty!
