Swansea Ramblers Walk


NSPCC Charity Walk
Wales Coast Path

Caswell
to
Welsh National
Maritime Museum

7th August 2013

Leader: Ian Botham




A group of Swansea Ramblers joined Ian Botham on a charity walk on the Wales Coast Path.  We raised 105 for the NSPCC and enjoyed a walk in glorious sunshine.  Ian 'Beefy' Botham walked at a very fast 4.5 miles per hour, leaving us and most of the participants far behind in his wake.  It became hotter and hotter then as we reached journey's end, the rain started to fall.  A shorter version of this walk can be seen on the Self-Guided Walks section of Swansea Ramblers' web site.  Just click the Evening Post button above to see maps and details.  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.
