Adventure weekend in Wales

May 2023

WAY Widowed and Young’s Membership and Finance Officer Tanya reports back on an action-packed weekend for WAY members in Wales…

WAY returned to the Pembrokeshire Coast for the second year in early May: it was an action-packed couple of days and members had the chance to enjoy the amazing countryside and do something completely different, while finding support and friendship.

Preseli weekend with WAY 2023

Preseli Eco-Lodge was our base from which the group of 15 WAY members headed out coasteering and sea kayaking, and we took a walk along the gorgeous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path in glorious sunshine; with fantastic food to fuel our adventures, and a well-stocked bar with a roaring log burning fire, we were lucky that the weather held for us and we were even able to have a proper campfire on Saturday evening. 

The weekend was full of many laughs and some tears, but most of all support and understanding with a great group of WAY members.

Here are some thoughts from people who took part:

“The water really made me feel a little alive. The activities were just perfect for the occasion. THANK YOU to all of you who made the weekend so wonderful!” - Lenka

“Getting out of my comfort zone meeting a group of strangers has never been so much fun! Thanks for being so open in sharing stories and being absolutely awesome. Together we've got this!” - Liz

“I haven’t felt so much like me for a long time. The laughs will carry me through for some time.” - Jenn
