We are a thriving group and proud of our history.
We began in August 1979 when Arthur Roberts, a stalwart member of Merseyside and the local organizer of the RA assembled the local paid up members of the Merseyside and North Wales area of the RA to a meeting at Dolgarrog. He proposed to form a new group in the Conwy area with the help of Frank Skelcey. The initiative bore fruit and the meeting agreed. The first chairman was Allan Shorrock and with the help of Frank Skelcey and Ted Howes they produced a short programme of walks and published them in the local newspapers, libraries and information centres. The first walk, from Trefriw to Crafnant and Geirionydd, attracted more than twenty enthusiasts who were invited to join the RA and form a committee. And so the Conwy Valley Group came into being.
Nowadays the walks are more frequent and varied and published in a programme booklet for the whole of North Wales.
Everyone can join us on our walks and will receive a very warm welcome; all we ask is that after two or three outings with us you join the Ramblers Association.
The Ramblers Association is a Registered Charity No.1093577 and a company limited by guarantee in England and Wales (No.4458492)
