Just 2 days after starting back at school the Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s group set off on their 3 day practice expedition. Being a very well-organised set of students they completed each stage on time, navigated well and had excellent camp craft skills.
The weather, on the whole, was kind to us with just a brief rainstorm as we were putting up tents on the first night. We enjoyed some brilliant sunshine after that, but the nights were rather on the cold side. In hindsight perhaps a few more fleeces would have been helpful!
Well done everyone. Looking forward to the final in October.
