Swansea Ramblers Walk


25th Annual Bethlehem Walk

19th December 2009

Leader: John Fry




This was the 25th year that John Fry has led an annual walk around the Bethlehem area.  We have done the walks in all weathers and enjoyed a meal at the pub in Trapp, singing carols afterwards.  We presented John with an album of photographs taken on walks over the years at Bethlehem.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
