Our new Bronze expeditioners were out-of-doors at the end of January, learning some navigation skills. A five-mile walk on Kingsley and Broxhead Commons was enjoyed by all, and by the time you are reading this we'll have been out for a whole day on Hankley Common learning to use and to trust our compasses.

Michael Scott has gained his Bronze DofE. He volunteered for several months in the Tricycle charity shop, and played drum in the BB band as his skill. His expedition was eighteen months ago in the New Forest, and for his physical activity he chose personal fitness, under the watchful eye of Julie Howe, who is a physiotherapist at Treloar's.

Erin Williams, who undertook her expedition in Shropshire in 2014 with five friends, has now gained her Silver Award. As she is a keen member of Alton Swimming Club, Erin had naturally chosen that as her physical activity, and she has been training several days a week over a period of years rather than the required six months! She chose to coach younger swimmers for her volunteering, and attended a three-month course in Basingstoke to learn lifeguarding skills.

Well done, both!
