April is the month of spring and under normal circumstances would be the month in which our volunteers take to the mountains again. After a break for the winter months, we were due to join forces with partners to give some serious TLC to some of the well-loved footpaths of the mountains of Snowdonia.
This time last year our volunteers headed out with Snowdonia National Park Authority to maintain both the Llanberis path and the Watkin Path on Snowdon and lent a hand to the National Trust in the Nant Gwynant area: working on the Llyn Dinas and Cwm Bwchan path. Our amazing volunteers have always been ready to get stuck in, whatever the weather.
Unfortunately, the circumstances this year are far from normal and our volunteers, like the rest of the country, are doing their part and staying at home. When the status quo is restored, we’ll be heading out again and look forward to seeing familiar faces (and hopefully some new ones!). We’ll be looking to reschedule as many of our workdays as possible, so there will be ample opportunities to get involved and enjoy the outdoors. When lockdown is lifted, we look forward to pitching in with the National Trust, lending a hand on Snowdon, maintaining the Snowdonia slate trail and much more! We’ll also be offering opportunities to combine this work with our accredited training, so there’s plenty to look forward to.
Join our mailing list to be kept up to date; we’ll let you know how things are progressing and when we’re able to get back outside you’ll be the first to know.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay at home and take care everyone.
