At the last meeting David Howard said that Jerry Bentley’s organisation of the annual three day walking holiday deserved five stars. The party was based in Bangor at the Management Centre in the University and made the most of their short stay. They had a 4.75 miles walk from Abergwyngregyn to Aber Falls before lunch on arrival and a three miles walk in the afternoon around Newborough Nature Reserve and Forest. They moved into Anglesey the next morning with a three miles walk around Llandonna followed by a 4.5 miles stroll across fields to the banks of the Menai Straits. Then on the final morning in heavy rain they had a five miles walk around Llyn Padarn past the National Slate Museum and through the area where Colonel John Hunt and his team trained before climbing Everest in 1953.
