Peace Mala Camp at Parc Le Breos, Parkmill, Gower, Wales
Due to the exceptional weather conditions, the 2007 Peace Mala Camp has been postponed. At the moment, the ground at Parc Le Broes is wet and boggy and this month’s forecast continues to be unsettled. For this reason we have reached a decision to postpone the event.
We look forward to better weather next summer and plan to organise a bigger camping event that we can all look forward to. Please keep an eye on the website for updates.
Would those who have booked for this year’s camp please contact the Peace Mala registered office for a refund of their money.
We apologise for the disappointment and any inconvenience caused. We look forward to seeing you all next summer.
Situated near The Gower Heritage Centre in Parkmill, Parc Le Breos is an Ancient Ash Woodland of international importance. The woodland has thus gained status as a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ and a ‘Special Area of Conservation’.
Parc Le Breos nestles majestic and mature oak, ash and conifer trees in its valley following the River Ilston. The ash trees grow particularly well on the limestone of Gower.
The woodland is also home to a variety of wildlife, including birds such as buzzards, woodpecker, Tawny Owls and nuthatch with pheasants during the summer months. The Tawny owls can be heard making their characteristic hoots after dark during the winter months. Two species of bat have been reported at Parc Le Breos – the Lesser and Greater Horseshoe Bat. Bats roost in crevices in trees, rocks and the nearby Cat Hole Cave; hunting for insects over the grassland in the valley and amongst the trees of the wood. Bats hibernate in the winter and it is crucial to their survival that they are not disturbed.
Peace Mala invites members of Swansea Faiths Forum, supporters of Peace Mala and all like minded people to join us at the Parc Le Breos Parkmill Camp in the beautiful Gower peninsular to celebrate the first Peace Mala Camp on Saturday 28th to Sunday 29th of July 2007.
Along with camping for the one night only, we will be looking to generate group participation in talks on a variety of topics including spiritual awareness, meditation / journeying, drumming (supply your own drum), woodland walking, camp fire singing and story telling and a Lammas celebration. Due to campsite regulations, lights will be out by 11.00pm.
We hope that the cost of £8.00 per person and £12.00 per family (2 adults 2 children) will help us cover the cost of the campsite and toilet facilities for the weekend and generate sponsorship for the Peace Mala International Awards for Youth.
A deposit of £2 per person (non returnable) will be required as we are restricted to 30 campers this year. Please bring with you your own camping equipment and food etc. Tickets are available from the Peace Mala registered office only. First come first served. All bookings need to be confirmed and paid for by 30th June 2007.
We hope very much to see and hear from you all in the near future, and look forward to experiencing the first Peace Mala Camp at Parkmill Gower. Please share your ideas with us and send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the Peace Mala Registered Office: 01792 774225.
Welcome to all.
