Alton Webteam: February 2017
Oliver Fellows has recently gained his Bronze award. He volunteered in the HART Animal Rescue charity shop for four months, and trained at rugby for eight months for his physical activity. He chose to learn Mandarin as his skill, and his teacher says he is now able to read and speak fairly well. He enjoyed his expedition in the New Forest in the autumn of 2015, having a great time with his six friends in excellent weather. Well done, Oliver.
This year's Bronze expedition group have already been out for their first training day walk, on Kingsley and Broxhead Commons, and will shortly be practising their compass skills on Hankley Common.
