Successful first expeditions!

The weather on the first two weekends of July was superb — just ideal for both expeditions!

The Year 7 (Venturers) group tackled the walk which they had planned — a full seven-and-a-half miles from Alton to Bradley along footpaths and bridleways. They completed it with almost no adult intervention, other than when they had to be re-routed where a farmer had planted barley right across the path!

The Year 8 (Navigators) group had planned a longer journey — a ten-mile circuitous route from Kingsley to Selborne. They only went astray occasionally and were soon back on track, enjoying the countryside on their journey. They had the added excitement of an overnight camp at Selborne — this was undoubtedly the highlight of the event. They cooked their evening meal and breakfast on lightweight stoves, and enjoyed a peaceful night under canvas.

We hope that both groups will join us in church at the 10.45am service on Sunday 1st October to receive their certificates.
