S4C celebrates the opening of the Wales Coastal Path

To coincide with the official opening of the Wales' Coast Path on 5 May this year, the last episode of the new series of Bro: Llwybr yr Arfordir will be celebrating the occasion on S4C.

On Monday 7 May, the Bro team - Shân Cothi, Iolo Williams, and the newest member of the crew, athlete and presenter Lowri Morgan - will be joining in the festivities in a variety of locations along the path.

Many exciting public events have been organised by the Welsh Government in partnership with the Countryside Council to celebrate the official opening of the Wales Coast Path.

Iolo Williams will be at Flint Castle, Shân Cothi on Aberystwyth Prom, and Lowri Morgan will be at the Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff Bay.

During the programme we'll join in the celebrations and follow the organised walks hosted by the Ramblers Society. The Society are running a whole weekend of walking routes under the title The Big Welsh Coastal Walk, and anyone is welcome to take part after registering at: www.ramblers.org.uk/wales.

"The opening of the Wales Coast Path will be a historic and special occasion," says Lowri Morgan, who's originally from Gower.

"Every time I go running abroad, either in the Arctic or in the jungle, someone always comments how the coast is like a playground to its residents, because there's so much to do there. It's a chance to put Wales on the map, and to show what we've got to offer."

Also on the programme, we'll look at different elements of the path - from the original idea by the then Assembly Minister for the Environment, Jane Davidson to the process of creating and maintaining the path.

Some of Wales' famous individuals will be explaining their reasons for choosing to live by the coast.
