Our Bronze and Silver candidates have all now finished (and passed!) the expedition component of their awards – congratulations to them all as these are rigorous tests.

Just before the half term break, the two groups separately, and successfully, ventured out to navigate the footpaths of Norfolk and Suffolk as well as practising their skills in cooking, campcraft and data collection.

The Bronze group’s luck held with the weather, which was unseasonably mild and sunny for their weekend away; however the Silver group had to contend with heavy rain and wind alongside the early dark nights after the clocks changed. Despite this, they managed to retain their humour and successfully completed every task.

The Gold group, meanwhile, are just about to begin the preparation for their challenge.

Well done, girls!
