DofE silver group May 2015

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Well — our second group of Silver expeditioners were the first ever 2nd Alton group not to have got themselves mislaid in the Forest of Dean! Now that's a result! Charlie, Riannon, Zak, Rosella and Darcie were spot-on with their navigation both there and on the Black Mountains, on a weekend when the weather was just ideal for expeditions.

Shortly, our Bronze group — five boys and two girls — will be on their practice venture in West Sussex, camping at a National Trust site located high in the South Downs, far from the nearest road. This is their first taste of expedition camping, and we hope the weather is equally kind to them!

May I take this opportunity of recording my thanks to the adults who help to make all this DofE expeditioning possible.

David Allan (84739).
