Summer programme

Canoeing at Waddow Hall Dry Stone Walling

Canoeing at Waddow Hall                            Dry Stone Walling

We completed a very busy and challenging summer break with the youth members taking part in such activities as Dry Stone walling, Canoeing at Waddow Hall, camping at Gaizegill Farm for several days and doing so much work ranging from helping herd the cattle, milking (6am) feeding the calfs, mucking out (a lot of that), making ones own beefburgers and sausages, feeding the baby piglets and so much more. We hope to repeat this in the future. Our thanks again go to Emma and Ian at the farm.

Other activities ranged from mountain biking, fishing, mechanics, off road motor biking, beach buggies as examples and of course taking part in the North West Street Games competition at Manchester and playing cricket. The weather was again poor so was played indoors. We came third and had we held our catches would have done better. Still all credit to the team for doing so well out of 12 or more teams that took part.

Several members went to London as part of the National Rotarian Awards for our WW2 project. They went to the BBC Studios and then onto the House of Commons. Our thans go to Eve Conway and Sue Hind from Rotary for organising this.

The Duke of Edinburgh group passed their expeditions again being based at Gaizegill farm and our thanks go to Ian and Emma at the farm.
