Snowdonia Walking Club

Print

26 April 2018

Last Week the Eryri Walking Club ventured around Cwm Idwal in the wind and rain.

But the sunshine soon made an appearance. This time a crew of ESOL students from Coleg Menai (English as second language students) joined us which included a family of Syrian refugees. It was a joy to hear Khaled practising Welsh phrases that Guto Roberts, Cwm Idwal Partnership Officer had taught him.

We were also fortunate to have the company and local knowledge of the Snowdon Warden and the National Trust's Seasonal Wardens.

The Eryri Walking Club is aimed towards people with visual impairments and we carry out a guided walk on the third Wednesday of every month. For more information contact Carys Dafydd, SNPA Community Officer.

Notes to Editors

*The aim of the club is to enable blind and visually impaired people to enjoy the benefits of walking in Snowdonia National Park and the vicinity. Join us on our guided monthly walks.

All the walks are held on Wednesdays -we meet at the North Wales Society for the Blind, 325 High Street, Bangor circa 10.30a.m – to be confirmed – subject to the location of the walk. Remember to bring suitable clothing / footwear – and a picnic!
