Look What “Bob The Builder” Has Made !

Hi Children, Bob The Builder is really pleased with the new shelter he has made for those Woodland Adventures sessions you love on a Wednesday. It took him two weeks to make the shelter, but would have taken him even longer had Scoop, Roley, Dizzy and Lofty not helped out. This will make sure that if it ever rains on your holidays in Wales, you will never miss a session with Rangers Susie & Graham again !

Welsh Writers

We are lucky in Wales to have so many great poets and authors, past and present – here is a list of just a few:

Roald Dahl

Internationally renowned children’s book writer Roald Dahl was born in Cardiff in 1916 to Norwegian parents. His famous works include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) and Matilda which have since been made into feature length movies and watched by millions across the world.

Today, to honour his successes we hold an annual Roald Dahl birthday party for children at the Norwegian Church in Cardiff. In 2016, to mark the 100th anniversary, Cardiff was be transformed into the ‘City of the Unexpected’ following a variety of events and celebrations throughout the summer.

Dylan Thomas

Dylan Thomas is one of our most well known and most brilliant writers. He celebrated Wales in both his work and his life and has left behind some of the best-known poems of the 20th century, including Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night and the play for voices Under Milk Wood.

Dylan Thomas was born and raised in Swansea, which is now home to the Dylan Thomas Centre, a focal point for studies and events based around the life and work of the poet himself. The Centre has a permanent exhibition on Dylan Thomas and his life and hosts the annual Dylan Thomas Festival during October and November.

Today the Dylan Thomas Prize is awarded every two years to recognise the best published writer in English aged 39 or under from anywhere in the world. Dylan’s Day is also firmly established in the calendar on 14 May; a great time to remember his works and perhaps inspire future generations to take up poetry.

Year Of The Sea – Visit Wales

Year of the Sea

In 2018 we’re celebrating Wales’ outstanding coastline, and inviting visitors to discover new epic experiences all around our shores, with special events and attractions throughout the year.

Coastal Path View

This is our Year of the Sea. The 870-mile Wales Coast Path runs the whole length of our coastline, passing seascapes of breath-taking variety, from fens to towering cliffs, featuring hundreds of harbours, coves, inlets and islands, and 230 beaches. Every cove and clifftop comes with legends of pirates and smugglers, wreckers and saints. There are classic harbour towns, modern marinas, ancient castles and elegant Victorian and Edwardian resorts.

There are 50 magical islands, set in seas that are home to seals, porpoises and Britain’s largest population of bottlenose dolphins.

There are dozens of activities to try: sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, kitesurfing, coasteering, stand-up paddleboarding, rib-rides and surfing. Or follow the rivers upstream to the inland shores of our lakes and reservoirs.

Coasteering – just jump in!

Wherever you are in Wales, you’re never more than just over an hour from the sea. So wherever you stay – rural cottage or boutique hotel – there’ll be an epic shore nearby.

With a language and culture that’s the oldest in Britain, a warm Welsh welcome, and food and drink made with skill by passionate people… this is the greatest coastal experience of 2018.

Welcome to our epic shores. #Findyourepic
