A walk will take place on Friday, 11 August, bringing together people who are concerned about the river Teifi.

The Save the Teifi River Pilgrims Walk will give people the chance to learn more about what can be done to protect the river and to raise funds for citizen science kits so it can be better monitored by the community.

The walk will start at Llechryd and make its way to Poppit Sands at the mouth of the river, with a whole host of activities and entertainment planned for the afternoon and into the evening.
