April has been a busy month for expeditions. Before the Easter weekend, the Silver group had fair, but cold, weather for their two days in Herefordshire and the open country north-west of Hay on Wye. A few days later, the Gold group enjoyed sunny and dry, and still cold, weather in the hills at the west end of the Brecon Beacons. Then it was the turn of the Bronze group to enjoy two fine days in the West Sussex Downs. Not a drop of rain throughout!

All three groups completed their practices very successfully, and are now planning for their assessed ventures in the summer and early autumn.

Also, the Young Ventures have completed their practices and will be out on their assessed expeditions in June and July.

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...
