Two squadrons from 157 (Welsh) Regiment Royal Logistic Corps travelled to Newgale Sands, West Wales for an adventurous weekend following the return to face-to-face training.

Both 249 (HQ) Squadron and 580 (Glamorgan) Squadron, both based in Cardiff, used their respective weekends away in August to build on relationships maintained through virtual training after months of lockdown.

The trips were funded in part thanks to grants from the Wales Reserves and Cadets Charitable Incorporated Organisation and achieved their aim of kick-starting enthusiasm for a return to Army reserve training.

Activities for 249 (HQ) Squadron included taking on challenging cycling routes and walking some of the hilly coastal path between Newgale and St Davids. Their strenuous efforts were rewarded with a boat trip around Ramsey Island to learn about the maritime history, geology and wildlife of the local coastal area.

While 580 (Glamorgan) Squadron took on a paintballing challenge and a socially distanced beachside PT session.

Both squadrons have expressed their thanks to the Wales Reserves and Cadets Charitable Incorporated Organisation for the financial contribution which contributed to the success of their respective weekends and return to training.
