Alton Webteam: February 2015
A couple of weeks ago, the six 14-year-olds in the Bronze group came on a map-reading day-walk on Broxhead Common. The temperature was just 2 degrees, with grey clouds scudding across the sky on a really strong northerly wind; fortunately everyone was well wrapped up to suit the occasion. We decided to stop around midday in the lee of a conifer plantation, out of the wind, and for that precise half-hour the sun came out — it was a most pleasant lunch stop! And, yes, they did learn a thing or two about navigation during the day!
I'm pleased to report that Victoria Scott has just achieved her Silver Award. She chose to tutor younger players in the school Brass Ensemble as her Volunteering activity, and for the Physical section spent six months improving her techniques at ballet. She played cornet as her Skill, and enjoyed her expedition with five friends last September in the Shropshire hills.
