Daerwynno Outdoor Centre is a registered charity run by volunteers, offering exciting outdoor pursuits and environmental studies. The Centre is based in a two-storey, stone-built farmhouse situated in the St Gwynno Forest near Ynysybwl, Rhondda Cynon Taf, south Wales.

We offer many outdoor activities and educational courses throughout the year, including orienteering, navigation, climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, team-building and wildlife and environmental studies.

It’s a mystery! 🔍
Stunning stone structures have been popping up on Lake District mountains, but no one seems to know who's built them...
We caught up with Carl Halliday who took this amazing photo. He chatted about how it happened, the amazing reaction there's been, and how he'd love to sit down for a beer with whoever made it! 🍻📷 Listen here: 👇

Don't throw that empty tissue box away! Consider repurposing it with one of these ideas instead:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡 Use an empty tissue box to store your plastic grocery bags. There’s even a way to make them pop up just like tissues! 🤧 Slide the bottom of each bag into the handles of the next bag, then insert them all into the box.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡 Use an empty tissue box as a tiny trash receptacle on your bathroom counter! It’s the perfect place to toss out cotton swabs, cotton pads, and other single-use cosmetic items.⁣ You can also put one on your desk, your living room coffee table, or in your car (it's perfect for collecting food wrappers)! 🍬⁣
⁣⁣
💡 Cut the tops off a few old tissue boxes and use them as drawer dividers. They can help keep smaller stuff organized instead of rolling around in your drawer. 🙌⁣⁣

How do you repurpose your empty boxes?

🌳🌲 We’ll be carrying out essential tree harvesting operations in Llanwynno forest in Rhondda Cynon Taff over the next few weeks.

Unfortunately, we will need to close the forest car park to the north-east of Llanwonno on 6 April for about four weeks.

If you visit the area, please follow any closure or diversion signs and stay safe.
