Builth Wells, June 2008

Iain Brown

Friday 6 June, 7-10pm. Barbecue at 39 Garth Road, Builth Wells, Powys, LD2 3AR (SO037510): a chance for everyone to get together over a burger and a beer. Telephone 01982 553068 or 07936 170691, or email

Saturday 7 June, 7 for 7.30pm. Annual dinner at the Greyhound Hotel, Garth Road, Builth Wells (SO038510). £15 per head. Please make cheques payable to Mr I D Brown. The proposed three-course menu includes a main course of Welsh lamb, but please let me (Iain) know if you prefer the vegetarian option.


The Greyhound Hotel (01982 553255) is offering a reduced rate for B&B of £50 for a double room, £35 single room, though there are only two of each available. Please mention Marilyn or Iain when booking. There are many other B&B establishments in Builth Wells but it can get busy over a June weekend, so early booking is sensible. B&Bs closest to the Greyhound Hotel include Bron Wye (01982 553210), The Hollies (553587) and the Llanfair Hotel (553253). However, Builth Wells is a compact town and everywhere is within easy walking distance.


I have arranged camping at the Riverside Community Centre in Hay Road (SO044511) for £5 per person per night. Please book your pitch in advance with me. The 'official town campsite' at White House Farm is situated next door but is much more expensive. There are no hostels near to Builth Wells.
