Swansea Ramblers attend the opening of the first stretch of the All Wales Coast Path

1st July 2010

The Welsh Assembly Government has made a commitment to open a coastal path around Wales by 2012.   A lot of work is happening all around the coast of Wales to be ready by this date.   Andrew Morgan and Zetta Flew have been involved in the creation of the All Wales Coast Path.   They went to Rhos on Sea in North wales for the official opening of the first stretch of path.   The minister, Jane Davidson, opened the path on a day which started blustery and threatening rain but which turned into one of the hottet days of the year.   A group of walkers then set off for Llandudno and after our ITV interview with Rob Shelly we set off to catch up with them.   We caught up with them before they climbed over the Little Orme and we walked on to finish on the seafront at Llandudno.
