Help conserve our environment and improve our quality of life

press release 15/07/2004

Dyfi Active is a new outdoor activities group that is determined to make a splash in this expanding sector of the tourism market.

Activity providers and activity-friendly accommodation providers are working together to develop and promote activities in the Dyfi Valley.

They aim to create more year-round jobs for local people, which is why the local regeneration group ecodyfi is helping them to get going by providing training, contacts and advice.

The WDA paid ecodyfi's Teresa Walters to find out who is offering what locally and to bring people together.

Since then the group has taken off.

Dyfi Active currently has 20 members and Chair Andy Williams of the Braich Goch Bunkhouse and Inn at Corris says they're keen to hear from more providers, "We want to make sure the area is ready for business", he said, "with the right facilities for active visitors".

The future looks good, says Secretary,Ann Bottrill, who notes that "The new Dyfi mountain biking trails will be a great boost to all our businesses - and once visitors arrive, they'll find that the area is brimming with other outdoor activities to do".

From sailing to climbing, canoeing to golfing, and fishing to hill walking, Dyfi Active will be promoting all kinds of "active" outdoor activities, particularly to family and beginner groups and to those who require the services of leaders and guides.

Set up during the Spring of 2004 as part of the Dyfi Valley Tourism Growth Area strategy, the group has three main projects planned: a web site that visitors and providers can log onto for up to the minute information; a leaflet promoting the group to visitors in the area; and an activities week in Spring 2005.�
