Centre life has just clicked into top gear, since returning from Snowdonia we have had an exceptionally busy but rewarding time in hosting: two Church groups last weekend; two schools through the week; a Church group & a Youth group last weekend & back to two schools this week. Fantastic, this is what Blaithwaite is all about!
Activities have been largely group centred with:
- climb / abseil sessions
- a walk up Blencathra, via Mungrisdale Common, in excellent conditions (no camera though!)
I got out to practise some orienteering on Sunday morning with a trip to the Bannerdale Crags area (see pictures).The weather was poor with gale force winds blowing in frequent heavy showers.
