Swansea Ramblers Walk


Dylan Thomas' 99th Birthday

26th October 2013

Leader: Zetta Flew




To celebrate Dylan's 99th Birthday on the 27th, we went for a stroll in and around Laugharne.  The Dylan Centenary gears up in 2014 and we'll be walking there again in 2014 but to mark this birthday, we went out along the Dylan Birthday walk then over to his grave to pay our respects.  Afterwards we went to Browns for refreshments and to sing happy birthday not to Dylan but to one of our group who believe will NOT be 100 this time!  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.
