We hope you are keeping safe and well during these difficult times. We are all looking forward to resuming our normal activities as soon as we are able to do so.
At The Gower Society, we are using the disruption caused by Covid-19 to rationalise our annual programme. Our AGM will be held in May and our programmes will run from May to October and November to April (instead of April-September and October-March). So your next programme and newsletter will be sent out in April, instead of March. So no need to panic or contact us if you don't receive your posting as early as you expected! It will arrive in good time for the resumption of normal activities. (11 January 2021)
Due to the pandemic restrictions in Wales, our Walks Programme has been suspended until further notice (30 Dec 2020)
