D of E Expedition

On the Welsh Hills
The six young people who are tackling Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award expeditions this year were extremely fortunate with the weather when they undertook their practice expedition in the Brecon Beacons. They successfully demonstrated their navigational skills before continuing on their unaccompanied journey over two days. The high point, literally, was reaching the summit of Fan Brycheiniog, at over 800m — that's 2600ft — above sea level.
The group consists of individuals who have come together from a wide area specifically for the expedition. Matthew is from Alton; others are from Christchurch, Warsash, Waterlooville, Locks Heath and Salisbury! They worked together really well as a group, and are now planning for their assessed expedition in Scotland in July.
I appreciated Rolfe Bridson's assistance during the expedition — it's so much easier when there are two supervisors!
