It’s the 75th Anniversary of the Ramblers organisation and to celebrate there are a series of baton walks. From
I joined the Merthyr Valley Ramblers on their baton walk. We all met at
We stopped at Llandaff Cathedral to take out the anniversary baton and have a photo.
The group were slightly disappointed with the blow up baton and indeed so was I. For such a landmark year for the Ramblers the baton was slightly deflating. I love the idea of the baton walks but maybe it could have been executed slightly better. Maybe a metal baton that acted like a time capsule so we could put all the pictures from our walk in? Just an idea!
Aside from the lack of glamour of the baton the walk was a great success. A Saturday stroll that was perfect. A gloomy and drizzly Welsh day but smiles and sandwiches brightened the day.
