Swansea Ramblers Walk


A night walk in Mumbles
for Sports Relief

14th March 2014

Leader: Karen Gibbs




Swansea Ramblers went for a stroll in the dark to raise money for Sports Relief.  We set off from Underhill Park in Newton using head torches to find our way in the dark.  We climbed onto Mumbles Hill for night time views across Swansea Bay then followed the Wales Coast Path to Langland.  Returning to Newton we went in the Newton Inn and raised over 85 for Sports Relief.  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.
