Gold April 17
Silver April 17
Bronze April 17

Over the Easter holidays, all of our Duke of Edinburgh's Award groups have been undertaking their Practice Expeditions, in readiness for assessment in the summer.
The Silvers spent two days exploring the area around Hay-on-Wye, and during the following week the Golds walked for two days on the Carmarthen Fans in the western Brecon Beacons. Both groups had good weather, were impressed with the magnificent views, and demonstrated their competence in navigation and camping.
Then it was the turn of the Bronze group, who camped high in the West Sussex Downs — again with superb views — and impressed the supervisors with their ability to cover the ground at great speed . . . . without getting lost!
