This from Francis Wallington:
In 2014 The National Federation of Plus Areas offers an opportunity to its members to be surprised by a land of drama. Previous Anglesey Walking Weekends were praised by participants for the organisation and facilities and we are once again pleased to announce the organisation of the Anglesey Walking Weekend. This provides an excellent opportunity to explore Anglesey and North Wales.
Accommodation is a bunkhouse with full board in a coastal part of Anglesey near Holyhead. This provides an excellent base to explore the countryside around North Wales.
A number of breathtaking rambles are planned, giving the opportunity to explore the Isle. The terrain and weather is varied so please bring walking boots and clothing layers to cope with a rainy summer.
Date and Time: 18:00 p.m. 1 st August to 10:00 a.m. 4th August
