Councillor Jason Parry said: “The idea for doing this came after a discussion the group had about trying to arrange an event for the town of Caernarfon as well as raising awareness of Prostate Cancer amongst the County’s residents.

“With the support of ProstateWales charity we have organised this walk as a two tier walk so that those who would like a shorter distance walk and for those who can do the full walk along the Aber foreshore and back.”
