LiveMoreYHA – Issue 4
This is certainly true for those athletes jetting off to Rio for the Olympics, and it’s this global celebration that lends this issue a more international flavour than normal. So as well as our usual features from around England and Wales – including some great inspiration for an action-packed YHA break in Cornwall – you’ll find an interview with Olympian Helen Glover MBE and an overview of some of the most unusual properties in the wider Hostelling International network.
Before the Olympics begin in August, however, early July sees the staging of our AGM, which takes place this year in Cardiff. It’s a momentous occasion, partly because for the first time in our history all members have been invited to attend themselves. Our members have always been at the very core of what we strive to achieve as an organisation, and I know many of you will be reading this, so regardless of whether or not you are joining us in Wales, I’d like to express my thanks for your invaluable ongoing support.
Together we’re making a genuine difference to thousands of lives across the country, providing young people with fresh experiences and new opportunities for adventure. And with this in mind, here’s to a fruitful summer ahead, whatever your plans.
Caroline White - Former CEO
