Walks for October 2017
Saturday 21st October 2017 - Aber to Conwy
Meet at Mulberry Gym and Spa at 9.30am. Our
transport will take you to the walk. The final part of our coastal
path walk is Aber to Conwy. Hopefully we will have transport sorted
out to take you to the top of Aber road and start the walk on North
Wales Coastal path, down into Llanfairfechan then past the standing
stones to Sychnant Pass and on to Conwy - distance 10 miles.
As you are no doubt aware there is a storm due
Saturday morning. We will still be meeting at Bodelwyddan 9.30am and
at this moment the walk will go ahead. However when we meet up in the
morning a final decision will be made subject to weather conditions
and we will discuss the
alternatives. I do reserve the final say
if I think the walk could be difficult, to cancel it. Any questions
please give me a call. Hope to see you in the morning.
