    Hi all

    There are no on site activities as such at Caeglas but we have arranged for the local county outdoors team to run a full scale pioneering session for us. They are leaders like us who give up their time to train guiders and girls in outdoor skills. Although they are not asking to be paid, the organisers thought it would be nice to put together a donation, therefore this activity will cost £2 each.

    We are also arranging a trip to St Fagan's, museum of welsh life. Again, this is free, apart from parking, so we are asking everyone for £1 to cover parking charges.

    www.museumwales.ac.uk/en/stfagans

    Please can you post below if you are interested in either activity so we can gauge numbers.

    Don't want to put a damper on your trip but have just googled St Fagans because I had never heard of it and ---- indoor galleries are closed to build new exhibition spaces and the celtic village is closed to prepare the site for a new eco friendly exhibition. It does look a good place to go though.

    Be reassured, there is a LOT more to St Fagans than just those areas, so although disappointing, there will still be LOADS to see :) I haven't been in years, must go again soon. Darn working in retail and not being able to get time off for the g2g...

    The gallery was one of the worst bits anyway. There is a bakery with amazing cheesy bread, a pottery where you can have a go, these a cafe for afternoon tea and a shop with traditional welsh produce, numerous building from history including the 1980's and a horse and cart.

    Not bothered about pioneering but the other might be fun - afternoon tea and all that.

    I'd be up for both. I also have a 7 seater car and would be happy to drive to St Fagan's if that would be helpful. We took the Guides a couple of years ago and it was a great day out. I agree, the gallery part isn't worth bothering with anyway so no loss that being closed!!

    I'd like to go to St Fagan's. not bothered about doing the pioneering.

    I also have a 6 or 7 seater car (depends if I have all the seats in lol) so I'm happy to drive to the place, as long as someone knows where to go to give me directions.

    I'd like to do St Fagans - depending on how I'm feeling I might retire to a coffee shop and wait for everyone else to finish if I'm too tired to walk all the way around

    I wasn't too keen on the idea of the museum, but after reading other people's comments, it sounds like it's a good place to visit, so I'd be up for it. Dolphin Brownie, I'll join you if I'm struggling too

    I'd also like to do pioneering, but that depends on how co-operative my body is feeling on the day.

    um I don't know anything about either of them, so I guess I'll say yes to both and you can all laugh at me cos I have a feeling I'll seriously struggle with pioneering!
    everyone near me except me seems to visit St Fagans so it'd be nice to know what they are all talking about :)
    and to err776 I have no clue but I'll have to use my satnav to get to the g2g so you're welcome to borrow that

    umm just thinking that if pioneering means knots then I'm going to be a bit hopeless .. but very willing to learn !! :p
