Your LDWA needs you for Valleys 100 

 Weekend Away Friday 23st  May to Monday 27th May 2014

 Volunteers needed for Checkpoint 14

(Come and join the happy band of  13  so far. )


Our London Group checkpoint this year is 90 miles along the route in Llanellen Village Hall  and only 3 miles from Abergavenney so the walking should be brilliant.


The checkpoint will be open from 1100 Sunday to 0500 Monday and we will be providing Tea & squash: Hot dogs / rolls, pasta salad & rice pudding / tinned fruit (or similar).

I hope to have 3 shifts, so volunteers can get some sleep either in the village hall or in Abergavenney.



Friday 23rd May

Meet up for meal in Weatherspoons for anyone staying in Abergavenney on Friday night.


Saturday 24th May

10am   Watch start of 100 in Pontypool

We can spend the rest of the day walking.  Social walk led by Nick and Judith.

Meal in Abergavenney in local Inn (not Weatherspoons)

Accomodation in Llanellen Village Hall (cheap option though you will have to bring sleeping bag and mat) or Abergavenney.


Sunday 25th May

1100                Checkpoint opens


Shift 1   9am to 4pm       Shift 2   4pm to 11pm             Shift 3     11pm to 5am (Monday)

(There can be a little flexibility depending on how many of us there are)


 Monday 26th May

0500                Checkpoint closes

Short morning walk   tba


This should be a great (and cheap) weekend away in a very beautiful area with a chance to support our London group champions. As well as inflicting our culinary skills on suffering walkers, there should be plenty of opportunity for us to walk and washing up can be lots of fun (honest!!)


Do get in touch if you would like to join the checkpoint
