Home » News » Young Venturers go out & about

The Young Venturers in School Year 7, who had completed their indoor training and a practice walk, were well prepared for their expeditions at the beginning of April. One group chose the Odiham / Dogmersfield area for their journey, while the other group walked from Newton Valence to Alton via Selborne Common.

And the good news was that they all completed their unaccompanied walks, with the weather being reasonable, if somewhat cold for the time of year.

Well done, Venturers!
