Another Busy Week - Thursday & Friday

For many of our young visitors & their teachers Thursday will have been the highlight of their week with In2venture (www.in2v.org) & stay at Blaithwaite House (www.blaithwaite.co.uk). Graham Simpson & myself took all of the residential attendees (in two groups - morning & afternoon) for a days gorge walking in Stoneycroft Gill - Newlands Vally.

I'm probably biased but Stoneycroft must be one of the top three wet gorge walks in the Lake District - a magnificent setting beneath Causey Pike; a series of natural slides; jumps; short swims & if you get far enough a beginners view of canyoning towards the end.

Anyway, despite the the long damp day that is involved when looking after back-back groups in the gorge - the kids & staff all had a great time: lots of smiling faces & shouts, screams & cheers. A really good day!


Friday is departure day for the school residential groups & their week concludes with some on-site activity & a final Kids Club meeting. It just left an opportunity to call in & say goodbyes before the next two schools arrive Monday......

Anyway, a welcome weekend off now lies ahead before another week at the crag & leading open canoe trips .......
