Waterfalls Country Local Ambassador: Gunpowder and Gorges!

From Brecon Beacons National Park Authority – they may still have spaces on current or future courses:

"As part of our Heritage Lottery Fund project to conserve and celebrate the former Gunpowder Works at Pontneddfechan, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new local ambassador scheme.

"Come the Autumn, the buildings of the former works will be newly conserved, our work to re-establish the native broadleaved woodland will be well underway and the site reopened with the opportunity to explore using digital apps, interpretative signage and sculpture.

"As you are no doubt aware, Waterfall Country has much more to offer too and the National Park Authority with partners, including the local community, have been developing plans to enhance the visitor experience in this popular area.

"We would love you to join us for a two day session so that we can bring you up to date and your visitors to the area can benefit from your knowledge. The two days will give you the opportunity to learn about the historic and natural wonders of Waterfall Country, hear the latest plans for improvements and explore the area with speakers from Cadw, the National Park Authority and independent ecology experts.

"Each day will begin at 10am and finish no later than 4pm. Whilst we are sadly not able to provide lunch, tea, coffee and biscuits will be available. Our base will be the village hall in Pontneddfechan.

"Please see attached a programme for more detail. Participants will be provided with a certificate, will have the opportunity to be featured on the Gunpowder Works webpages and be able to take home a resource pack."
