 LEADER TRAINING

Two of our leaders spent the weekend in Wales on a Mountain Leader training weekend. The picture on the right shows our tent in the middle of nowhere!

We had a little spare time so flew the group kite. Sunday the sun rose without a cloud in the sky and we were woken by wild horses eating grass near our tent at 6am.
