The Story of Bwlch with Altitude Challenge 2016

On 4th June 2016 Bwlch and Llangorse came alive with explorers visiting from all over the UK to take part in #BwlchAlitude 2016 Challenge.

in at our challenge today – prizes, food, live music in New Inn Pub after. Starts at 10am!!

The village hall opened it’s doors to fuel the explorers with tea and toast before the challenged commenced – and of course had cake ready for when they returned triumphant!

Everyone completed the challenge – some raced it to the finish line to be in with a chance of some amazing prizes donated by local businesses, and others took their time and popped into the local shops and cafes along the route.

A massive thank you to everyone involved who volunteered their time, offered prizes for the explorers and shared details about the event:

New leaflet celebrates what is special about Llangorse and Bwlch

Villagers and businesses in Llangorse and Bwlch have joined forces to create a new information leaflet to promote what’s great about these two villages in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The newly produced Discover Llangorse and Bwlch guide is packed full of information about activities, attractions, places to eat and drink, circular walks, star gazing, wildlife, and accommodation in the area.

The brochure, funded through Brecon Beacons National Park Authority’s Rural Alliances initiative, has been created by the newly-established Llangorse and Bwlch Rural Alliances group and will be made available to local businesses and residents during an open meeting at Llangorse Multi Activity Centre at 18:30 on Thursday, May 9.

The meeting will give the local community the chance to join the Llangorse and Bwlch Rural Alliances group, and contribute to driving forward sustainable tourism in the area, as well as bringing the local community together. Although the group have only been together for a short period of time, they have already worked collaboratively to develop a new website www.aroundllangorselake.co.uk to promote the area.
