We've had plenty going on at Clyne Farm and this weekend host nearly 100 young people on a Frontier training weekend and a youth club visit from Bristol.Our  Photo Gallery has lots of new pictures including Specsavers optician Steve Jones' surprise fortieth birthday party.

 

Valentine Greetings from the stables and Clyne horses!

Our attractions page has proved highly popular and by the Spring we will have more information from our partner companies to make our  website the information hub for what to do in Swansea and Gower.

Horses and Valentine Cards 

Clyne Farm Centre is believed to have the first website offering Valentine's Day cards for horses and ponies!. The bizarre move came as a suggestion from one of our regular riders and has taken off in a big way with stable manager Chris involved in a photocall with shire cross Ginny.

If you want to send a card to your favourite mare (careful!) or forgotten to send one to your hubby log onto our electronic postcard page complete with a romantic piece of background music

Full details of our hacks, lessons and Adopt a Pony Days are on our web site as well as pictures of the horses and staff. 

Computers

I attended a training day for the Wales Tourist Board Destination Management System (DMS) this week. It promises to be a comprehensive one stop system for bookings throughout Wales - if everyone can get their heads around it!

Dump of the Week

I was reminded this week about the Mumbles traffic warden who was seen booking a German tourist who was parked on a double yellow line slap bang in the middle of twenty local cars sporting orange disabled stickers but decided that the Boob of the Week must go to the British Tourist Authority who forgot to include Gower in their overseas marketing package. 

Having had somewhat similar treatment at their offices in Buenos Aires a few years ago I'm not surprised - Note to Assembly Members -  isn't it time that overseas marketing of Wales came from closer to home?

Gong of the Week

Castallemare Restaurant for continue to promote the area with good promotions and attractions to give visitors a good time throughout the year.

Did you know? Challenge Valley has had a winter facelift designed to allow spectators to watch and not get their feet quite so muddy! Lots of pictures in our Photo Gallery

Why not?  

  • Take a walk from Southgate to Three Cliffs Bay - hardly a soul at this time of year and probably the best views in the country. Return via Pennard Castle and the footpath alongside the golf course. 

  • Book the children in for an activity day - drop the children off and takle the old man shopping - he needs new socks!

THE BIG POSTCARD

Our latest offering is The BIG Postcard site. Not that it's very big at present but we aim to expand it into a site where you can send pictures by e mail of almost everything in Swansea and Gower. Forgotten to send a Christmas card? Why not send a BIG Postcard NOW!  

NEXT EDITION

  • Easter at Clyne - new walks unve

  • The real fishing village of Mumbles

  • Gower Golf Breaks
