Join us as we explore some of North Wales' hidden gems. We will be walking some of the most beautiful trails in the country and reporting on news, events and activities; both weird and wonderful. We will be trying and testing activities you might not have known North Wales has to offer, some within our comfort zone and others which are very far out!

Edge of Wales Reaches Out
We were recently asked by Venue Cymru, the iconic theatre on the Llandudno seafront, to help with their outreach program - connecting the theatre more widely with the people of the area through promotional events. We put on a Geocaching display at the July events at Penmaenmawr and Llandudno and below are some of the photographs of how we fared in very mixed weather.
The display centred upon a stand from which we explained to those attending the show all about the fast growing sport of geocaching and we issued GPS units so that nearby temporary caches could be found.
Also on display were a fascinating mixture of skills - mediaeval duelling, painting, pottery and clog dancing among them.
The traffic free area adjacent to the War Memorial proved a great location and we lent out the GPS units to over 100 people during the day.
Also popular was the art of rock balancing. Have a go; it's harder than it looks!
We created a special geocache for the Llandudno event which recorded the fate of the Flying Foam, a schooner that went down in Llandudno Bay in 1935. Here is a photograph of one of the children who attended the event painting an image of the ship on to a rock which was later put into the geocache.
