Just a Quick Note                 10th November 2016

Hello Folks,

As you know we had our Annual General Meeting last Monday. It was another low turn out unfortunately, but those that were there heard that it’s been a far from quiet year and that there’s still plenty more to keep us busy over the coming year. The chairman’s report and full minutes of the meeting will be made available online as soon as possible.

Our constitution requires that all Trustees resign and seek re-election if they wish to continue – after that process the list of Trustees is now as follows:

  • Terry Evans
  • Sue Evans
  • Rob Southall
  • Martyn Vaughan
  • Maggie Thomas
  • Les Murphy
  • Howard Vicary
  • Charles Ferris
  • Alun Booth
  • Co-opted as advisers are Norman Liversuch and Simon James

The posts of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer will be decided at the next Trustees Meeting which will be Monday 5th December.


This is also the time of year when many membership subscriptions become due so please check that you are paid up to date. Go to our website to see how to pay. http://www.twmbarlwm.co.uk/membership/

Also regarding membership – we are always not very sure if our emails are getting through to you, so it would be nice if you could respond to this email – click on the reply button and just say “Received and happy to continue with CTS” – or whatever quick message you want. If you know any other past or prospective members could you check with them that they have got this message.


For the first time ever we have published a printed Calendar featuring some beautiful images of Twmbarlwm and the views from the mountain – this is the ideal Christmas gift for people with fond memories of the “The Tump” and the surrounding area. There is one month per spread and plenty of room to write notes of your special dates. Months and days of the week are in Welsh and English. (Go to the website to see all the lovely images).

It’s only £5 if you pick one up at one of our events or £6 inc p&p when you buy it online at our website –  order yours now.


Twmbarlwm Calendar 2017




Monday 28th November 2016

Always very popular and a splendid trophy is up for grabs for the winning team as well as many other prizes.


Shake off those Xmas Excesses with a walk to the top of Twmbarlwm with a group led by enthusiastic rambler and CTS Member, Maggie Thomas.

The route is usually under 6 miles and should take no more than 4 hours – and there will be a hot toddy and mince pies waiting at the top.

We haven’t confirmed the date  – but is likely to be Boxing Day – watch this space for more info.


Is usually the last Sunday of the month but as that is Christmas day we will postpone it for a week or two – again we will let you know when it is.

We hope to have more walks and talks arranged in the new year – if you have any ideas or know of anyone willing to give a talk, please get in touch.

Those who follow our Facebook page or the “Friends of Cwmcarn Forest Drive” page are also invited to consider becoming “paid-up” members and/or take part in our projects – if you know any of them please pass this on.

I also repeat my request for persons who might have special skills or knowledge to help run the Society or assist with our projects, to get in touch.

Getting to the car park

For the Events starting at the car park on Twmbarlwm, if you would prefer to have a lift there please get in touch with me at the address below and I’ll try to arrange transport for you – or if you are able to offer transport to others also let me know. There are maps and descriptions how to get there on our website – under the menu tab “Location”

These details are posted on our website and on FaceBook – but if you know of anyone who is interested but don’t get their news through the internet – could you please let them have a copy of this message.

Many Regards

Chairman Cymdeithas Twmbarlwm Society
