We were grateful that 14 enthusiastic walkers participated including 2 children.   It was not the best of days weather-wise as we set out from Hirwaun up Station road and on the scenic back road to Penderyn.  Unfortunately I experienced a fall on a slippery pavement in the morning outside Church and so walking uphill proved a problem – also we had 2 other walkers who were not well so we 3 only completed 5 miles of the walk.

We were grateful to John Scott from Ramoth CC who led the rest up past Penderyn Church and back to Hirwaun via the Industrial Estate.    John bless him is an experienced walker and we are so grateful to him for all his help.  However, some the walkers experienced some problems and were rather tired on their return.  Thank you to all the walkers and sponsors – we are so very grateful and  will ensure that the route is shorter next year!

A big Thank You to Sharon Thomas and her colleagues of Santander (Pontypridd branch) who support us and arrange match funding for our walks and coffee mornings up to a value of £1.500.

We will update you later on what was raised for this event.
