New Year’s Walk

Let’s walk into the New Year with CCV in some of the country’s most stunning scenery on Sunday 5th January!

This New Year’s walk will be slightly different this year, it’s going to be a cross between a New Year walk and a CCV task as we’ll be surveying footpaths in Bridgend for Llangwyndd Community Council.

We can arrange pick up in the minibus outside Forest Farm Country Park, Whitchurch at 8:30am or Cardiff museum at 9am – Please let us know which you would prefer!

The walk will be lead by Ben Isaac and will roughly finish around 4pm at the pub for something to eat (completely optional).

– To book a space on our minibus please contact our hotline number 07450700214 to arrange pick up.

– Same rules of the day as a task day – wear suitable outdoor clothing!

– Very welcome to bring your own food

– Please contact the Facebook page for more information on how to book!

Hope to see you there!

Christmas Task!
