The local RSPB group is organising a nature walk in Swansea Vale on 11th April.
Their message reads:

"Meet at Swansea Vale Resource Centre Car Park, Ffordd Tregof, Llansamlet (SA7 0AL) at 10.00am. A morning walk around the marshland, footpaths and river paths in the Swansea Vale development area. Contact: Marlay John (01792-816250). Beginners and new members welcome.

"Warm weatherproof clothing and boots may be necessary. Please leave dogs at home. Walks are undertaken at your own risk. Directions: Turn north off A48 at Star Inn, Llansamlet into Church Road leading into Walters Road. Turn left at second roundabout into Ffordd Tregof. Centre is first right."

Unfortuantely, the nearest bus - First Cymru's 59 - does not run on Sundays.

I have also received the programme of summer walks from Neath and Port Talbot Ramblers' Association. Walks are listed for all over South Wales, plus one weekend away in Church Stretton. There are long walks of 8-11 miles and short walks around 5-6 miles. Of particular interest is the annual 10-mile Sarn Helen walk on 30th May.

For more information, contact the secretary on 01656 733021
