We are inviting visitors to the Eisteddfod to join us for a walk and discover there’s something for everyone with the Ramblers. Come and find out more about all the ways you can get involved.
Llanelli Ramblers will lead a walk at Felinfoel on Thursday evening (meet 6.30 at Llanelli Leisure Centre) and will be joined by Rebecca Evans AM. Each day from Monday to Friday there will be a short, accessible walk at 3.30 from the main entrance led by Walking Well Carmarthenshire, one of our Let’s Walk Cymru
groups designed to increase the number of people using the great outdoors as a way of improving their health and well-being.
Ramblers Cymru staff and volunteers from local Ramblers groups will be on hand at stand 106 to talk to visitors about all the ways to get involved with the Ramblers, whether that is walking with a group, following our Ramblers Routes, helping to maintain footpaths or supporting campaigns such as Wales for Walking
. We’ll have activities for children to encourage the next generation to discover the outdoors.
Ramblers Cymru Director Angela Charlton said: “The National Eisteddfod is a chance to celebrate our Welsh identity and an opportunity to come together to enjoy the best that Wales has to offer in many areas. We are lucky in Wales to have so many beautiful places to walk – we want to celebrate that at the Eisteddfod and encourage more people to take their first steps.”
The National Eisteddfod is Wales’ leading festival held annually during the first week of August. This year’s Eisteddfod at Llanelli’s Millennium Coastal Park from Saturday 1st – Saturday 9th August is expected to attract over 150,000 visitors.
If you’re at the Eisteddfod, join one of our walks or see us at stand 106!
