University of Third Age welcomes people from Llangollen

Lots of hard graft, determination and tenacity went into the re-opening of the railway track between Llangollen and Corwen.

That was the message from Peter Neve of the Llangollen Railway Trust when he spoke to Berwyn and District University of the Third Age (U3A), telling them how teams of volunteer railway enthusiasts turned the route from an overgrown, neglected path into a very popular tourist attraction. 

However, the work isn’t finished, and the railway is still looking for volunteers to keep the trains running.

* Berwyn and District University of the Third Age (U3A) has open meetings with a speaker at Canolfan Ni in Corwen every third Monday, and everyone is invited

February’s meeting heard from Iwan Meirion of the South Snowdonia Search and Rescue Team who told members about his work in the mountains.

As a volunteer, Iwan is often called out to help people who have either hurt themselves, or have ventured out hopelessly unprepared and need help.

He gave details of some of the rescues he had been involved in and the training he has to do to make sure, he, his team, and their patients are kept safe.
