The Gower Society Youth
We run monthly activities for 4-16 year olds around the Gower Lordship. These activities aim to introduce new ways for children to explore and engage with the Gower countryside. All activities are free, funded by The Gower Society, and based at a different location each month. They range from river dipping and butterfly hunts to woodland adventures and pirate days.
The list of Gower Society Youth activities below is updated regularly so please check for changes. All activities will also be published in the Gower Society programme and on the Gower Society web site. http://www.gowersociety.org.uk
We have started a Gower Society Youth Facebook page. It is a members only page so to see photos of the activities and what is going on so find us on Facebook and like our page.

|Mindfullness in the woods. (Saturday 16 March 2019)||Enquire now|
Ever wandered aimlessly just enjoying the sound of the trees the feel of the dappled sunlight on your face, the crunching leaves under your feet.
Time to turn off and tune into the power of the woods to just ground you and let you enjoy the wonder that surrounds you.
We will be experiencing a range of mindfulness activities, all suitable for children and adults.
Travel from Swansea on the A4118, through Upper Killay towards Swansea Airport. Cross the first disused runway, cross the second disused runway. There is a turning on the right. JUST past the second runway. You will need to slow down dramatically as you approach it. You will need to travel up the old runway, turning left at the top, following the road around the perimeter of the Airport following the fence until the turning on the left through the gate into the centre. Look out for the GSY flag on the road.
