Alton Webteam: March 2018
At last! Libby Bentley finished her Bronze DofE a long time ago, but finally the "paperwork" has been completed! She helped as a young leader in Girls' Brigade, and joined the after-school girls' rugby club, training with them regularly. Drama was her chosen skill, and she completed her expedition in the New Forest back in 2016.
Hard on her heels comes another Bronze! Phoebe Randall volunteered at Treloar School for three months, did keep-fit by cycling in Alice Holt Forest, and trained regularly for drama at Haslemere Hall, an activity which she has been doing for almost two years. She did her expedition in the New Forest last September.
Congratulations to both! And the good news was that they were both able to attend the East Hampshire presentation ceremony held at Mill Chase Academy in mid-March, along with Darcie Carruthers who had completed her gold some weeks earlier.
Our Bronze participants have recently been out on compass navigation training on Hankley Common. They were blessed with good weather, and gained both experience and enjoyment from the day. First aid practical training is next, then planning for their practice expedition to the South Downs.
