February trip cancelled
4th January 2021
It will come as no surprise that the Winter Mountaineering trip to Snowdonia will not take place in February. The reasons are, we hope, obvious and entirely Covid-related. Apart from the fact that restrictions are currently being tightened, the Scout Activity Centre at Yr Hafod also remains closed until further notice (our booking has been moved forward to February 2022).
As for the rest of 2021: we don't intend to publish a programme as we have no idea whether it can be fulfilled but hope that the situation will improve as the year progresses. If that should be the case then we will plan trips as-and-when restrictions allow, according to the usual timetable:
- Late May Bank holiday - long weekend, including wild camping (probably the Lake District)
- Mid September - hill walking (possibly a joint trip with the County Climbing team)
- 5th-7th November - Training and Assessment (Cornel SAC in Snowdonia is booked)
We will, of course, inform you of any events that can take place via email as well as our social media and website.
Stay safe and we sincerely hope to see you on the hills before the end of the year.
