We will meet at suitable locations and the leader will describe the walk, the conditions underfoot and the estimated time it will take. We will do this whilst observing the prevailing social distancing guidance. You will be reminded there is to be no sharing of kit, clothing, food or drinks.
The five-mile travel guideline in Wales could remain in place all summer, with no plans to lift the limit until July at the earliest according to First Minister Mark Drakeford. This will make Wales over two months behind England in this and seriously damages business and so the people of Wales’ ability to thrive.

I went out for a jog in the heat of the day today. I need to keep fitness levels up in preparation for some mountaineering, one day, someday… And I came across some council workers at Blackweir Bridge which had me sending this to Cardiff City Council who it would appear, under the emergency powers legislation, rules, guidelines, whatever, failed in their duty of care to their workforce…

Oh Joy! Cosmeston and the Vale parks are to re-open! We should regard ourselves as lucky…
I think therefore that it is time to, on occasion, explore a little further afield, to leave the parks for those who don’t drive or can’t travel. After all, walking outside to my car and driving a short distance to somewhere where I will see less people than if I were walking the streets and parks of Cardiff has to be a good thing.
Given the advice that peak virus will not be with us until mid May, when 95% of all infections will likely be taking place, it would seem sensible to assume that the Corona Virus will be disrupting our society until the end of August.
