    Cancer Research UK - Brecon Beacons Hike

    Saturday 30th June

    Distance: 39.9km / 24.79 miles

    Entry Fee: Women £30

    Women who sign up will be given a Race for Life Season Pass, offering free entry into unlimited 5k and 10k events to support their training.

    The Brecon Beacons Hike starts at the Brecon Showground and follows the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal before crossing the bridge over the river Usk and heading out of Brecon ascending to your first support point. From here is a strenuous mountain walk up to the distinctively shaped summit of Pen Y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales at 886 metres. On a clear day the views from the summit are spectacular, both of the Beacons Mountain range and of the surrounding landscape. From here we head slightly down from the summit before taking the steep climb up to Cribyn (795m) and looking back at the magnificent views back towards Pen Y Fan. We then descend south west picking up the Taff Trail through the stunning Talybont Forest walking past Talbont Reservoir before joining the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal at Talybont-on-Usk. The route continues along the stunning canal towpath all the way back to the Brecon Showground.

    Sign up today and help fundraise for Cancer Research UK, enabling scientists and doctors find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

    NEWCASTLE EMLYN U3A
    Newcastle Emlyn U3A organised a Philosophy Workshop at the University which prompted the University of Lampeter to organise their own workshops for this coming year,
    .The workshops are open to everyone, but all U3A members are invited. Lampeter University is doing all the organisation and responsibility. So we can get the benefits without the work. This will be a new venture for our local university and we hope it will encourage many more Universities and Colleges to have public workshops. Although not specific for the U3A we do hope many members will apply. I have listed below the workshops and brief details. Full details, costs and how to book can be found at  http://www.uwtsd.ac.uk/humanities-workshops/
