People in Powys who love walking met for the Annual General Meeting of Powys
Ramblers at Dolforwyn Hall Hotel in Abermule last Sunday. Following an enjoyable short walk along the canal, 22 members of Powys Ramblers met to discuss the serious business of protecting Public Rights of Way (PRoW) and campaigning to promote the rights of everyone to walk in our beautiful mid Wales countryside.

Volunteer Ian Walker ‘’My family has seen first-hand the devastating impact that this disease can have on the person diagnosed as well as their family and friends. The research and care that Alzheimer’s Society provides is crucial to fighting this ticking time bomb. Early diagnosis, specialist care and of course the search for a cure is front of mind for many of those who are giving their time for free to help make the Welsh1000Walk a huge success – both in terms of awareness and fundraising.”
Help us to achieve our goal and inspire people walking the only full coastal path in the world!
