Offa’s Twisted Wye Kanter – 2019 Report

Report & Results of the 2019 event

This was the last ever Offa’s Twisted Wye Kanter and it was also (we believe) the first ever LDWA Members’ Only event. It was a trial on behalf of the National Executive Committee as last year the event was oversubscribed and many members were unable to enter. 12% of the entrants joined the LDWA and immediately afterwards entered the event so if nothing else, the event encouraged people to join the LDWA and hopefully they will remain as members and get involved with LDWA activities. The new members were not limited geographically to the South Wales area and Cornwall & Devon and Heart of England areas benefited too.

The event can only take place because volunteers give up their time to ensure that others have a great day out. One of the reasons that this is the last ever kanter is because of the footpath closures (at short notice) that take place to enable forestry work to take place. This meant that in December, volunteers had to walk new paths, identify new clues, write new route descriptions and record new GPX files. Then other volunteers had to go and test the new routes to see that they were fit for purpose. The following volunteers worked hard either before the event and/or during it and I cannot thank them enough for their efforts and dedication.
