Our nine Bronze participants are preparing for their expeditions in the New Forest this month. It should be a great adventure for them, as they're camping "wild" in the woods, a privilege only available to DofE participants. No doubt they'll get lost at some point along the way, but their two days of expedition should be a great experience for them to look back on!

We're always looking out for adults to help with training the young people, especially for their expeditions, and this has suddenly become a more pressing issue! If you think you might be able to help, or if you have a name to suggest, please let me know via the Church Office (01420 82695).

Terri White very kindly brought along three of her pupils who played for us — the first public performance for all three of them! We sang along to some familiar carols...
