At Margam Park on the 23rd and 24th of July there's going to be a hot air balloon festival.
Does anyone fancy going?
As well as the balloons, there's a great deal of photographic opportunities - an abbey, Margam castle, deer, a lake, a little train, birds of prey, extensive grounds, a small wildlife area...

Oooh, and an adventure playground!

...but where is it situated? Been through their website and can't find a location reference anywhere.

Its a plot isn't it? A plot to keep out the English!

Does that mean you're coming along?

Forgot to add that if you're travelling west, take the third exit off the roundabout. Margam Park is the second turning left. If travelling east, take the first exit off the roundabout. Margam Park is the second turning on the left.

Don't think I'll be able to make this either, we break up from work for our summer shutdown on 22nd so will probably be going away somewhere on the 23rd. Not confirmed yet so I'll keep an eye on the thread but I'm very doubtful.
Sorry :-(

Thanks for the e-mail Pete but I'd prefer it if you made enquiries in this thread.
To answer a few of your questions though:

Yes, there probably will be girls there.
No, you don't need a passport to come to Wales.
No, I don't think people will 'pick on you' if you attend.

Give it a bit of consideration and post your reply on the site.

So far it looks like Mark, Mike and me - I might make sandwiches for us all at this rate ;o)

Hey - any of you guys know of any North-West (Gwynedd) members who meet - or are willing to meet - or have met and want nothing to do with each other?
