Gower Holiday 9-12 September

Group Autumn 2018 Holiday on the Gower  ** Places still available **

Arrangements have been made for the Group’s Autumn break in 2018 to be based on the Gower Peninsula, South Wales, staying at the King’s Head Hotel, Llangennith. This holiday is being organised for us by Secret Hills Walking and will be a four-night break, Sunday 9th to Wednesday 12th September.
Leaders will be provided for a short, local walk, on the Sunday afternoon for those able to get there in time, and then three leaders on each of the following days so that on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday there will be a choice of three walks. Two of these will be similar in length and pace to the Group’s usual UK holidays, ie. one of between about 9 and 10 miles taken at a moderate pace and the other of about 6 or 7 miles and at a slightly easier pace. The third option will be a walk of about 3 - 4 miles on easier terrain and allowing more time for sightseeing or exploring. Areas visited are likely to include Rhossili Bay, The Mumbles, Worms Head, and Oxwich Bay.  
The cost of the four night, en-suite accommodation, dinner, bed and breakfast, the services of the leaders, and transport costs to and from the start/finish points of the walks where appropriate, on the three full days will be £384 pp., plus £10 per night single supplement. Lunches are not included in the cost but the hotel can provide a packed lunch. Other options are also being investigated, but there are no local shops.

Those members wishing to reserve a place should complete the booking form at the end of the December Newsletter and return it, as soon as possible, to the address on the form together with a cheque for £80pp made out to East Berks Ramblers as a deposit. The balance will be required by 1stAugust at the very latest, again by cheque to East Berks Ramblers (a reminder will appear in the April Newsletter).
