Snowdon, Wales' highest peak at 1,085 metres and our challenge for the day. It was the first of four mountains on the DG’s DofE Awards Challenge. Robert Louden, the Club’s Director General, had been asked to undertake his own challenge to mark the 60th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
I‘ve always wanted to go a music festival in the warmer summer months but the threat of being ankle deep in mud and the lack of facilities has always put me off although I know, for some, it’s all part of the experience.
The summer certainly took its time to get going this year, so I hope Club members and their doggy chums have managed to enjoy some sunshine.
When I’m on a camping trip, I love a good pint of beer at the end of the day’s journey.
Many of the sites in the Club’s network have top-quality pubs on their doorstep. Two of my favourite Club Sites are Hayfield, in the Derbyshire Peak District, and Dingwall, in the Scottish Highlands. Coincidentally, both are less than half a mile from great pubs.
