Christmas Walk 2017

The Twmbarlwm XMAS EXCESS Walk


Wednesday 27th December 2017

Don’t wait for January 1st to start a New Year’s Resolution!

Start your resolution early.

Shake off those Xmas Excesses – Join Maggie Thomas with a group from Cardiff Ramblers on a walk (approx 8 miles – about 4 hours) to Twmbarlwm on Wednesday 27th December. It’s a moderate to challenging walk.

Meet at the the car park on the canal by Pontywaun Bridge (near the Spiritualist Church) at 10 a.m.

Bring a snack and something to drink.

In previous years we have provided Mince Pies and Mulled Wine but at this time we are not sure if we will be able to – so please make sure you are self sufficient.

Wrap up – wear warm clothing including gloves and a hat.

There will be a prize for the best hat!
