DofE Bronze at Gumber Bothy

Our Bronze group managed to find thick mist on the South Downs at the beginning of the month, and were pleased that their compass skills were up to the mark! They enjoyed camping at Gumber Bothy, a National Trust property high in the Downs, far from the nearest road.

This summer, our three DofE Golds are joining up with three boys from 72nd Birmingham BB Company for their assessed expedition in Scotland. They've never met, and are doing all their planning by text and e-mail. They have a couple of days relaxing together in a cottage near Castle Douglas in Dumfriesshire, before setting off on their four-day fifty-mile adventure. Should be interesting!
