That was jolly good fun!
Welcome to the first of our occasional (until nearer the event) Newsletters.
First: we do hope you have been out enjoying the lovely sunny weather and walking, walking, walking!
As we are writing this in mid July it has just started raining here in North Wales, that's why it's so lovely and green here I guess!
We'd like to say a massive thank-you to everyone who joined us for our 6th Llangollen Walking Festival 2018. The weather was kind and the company was good.
TO START: in 2019 all our walks will start from the Cottage Tea Rooms & Bistro in Castle Street (the High Street to you and me) lots of Yummy food and lovely coffee too... more news to come.
At the end of May we were guiding for the Malvern Walking Festival in Worcestershire, it was great to hook-up with some familiar faces from Llangollen and discover how much you enjoyed our walks and the goody-bags too.
HURRAH! those very nice people at Wrexham Lager have already said they will again supply us with their lovely Wrexham Lager for our 2019 long walks... what lovely chaps they are. Do visit their web site and read their fascinating story.
A REALLY BIG THANK YOU to David Crane and the Llangollen Museum for providing us all with the really interesting Llangollen Walking Guide Books -

CLIF Bars - there are FREE Clif Bars for energy for everyone again in 2019, just collect them when you join your walk leader.
If you joined our 'long walks' with Mike you may have noticed him carrying LEKI Walking Poles should anyone wish to borrow them. Some walking guests have borrowed the poles and gone-on to buy them having discovered the huge benefits to be gained by using them especially on the steep climbs.
