So we have reached the end of our adventure in Wales. The children have packed bags and cleared the rooms before vacating their home for the week. Their adopted home is named Pen-Y-Bryn which means ‘top of the hill’ and it’s quite a hill.
I am sure that the children will miss many things when they return – the camaraderie, the adventures and the food to name a few. I suspect that the 65 steps plus a steep slope to get to their bedrooms may not be one (we have averaged 2km on site before 9 am) so there should not be any complaints if they’re asked to take anything up to their bedrooms when they get home!
We have seen something this morning that we haven’t witnessed all week – rain. It must be time to head home. It has been an unforgettable week and huge credit must go to our course director, Ali, who couldn’t have done more to ensure that we had a great week and the talented, hard-working and personable group leaders who have provided the children with one of the best weeks of their lives.
Sadly the time to say farewell has arrived but I am sure that the shared memories will be shared and retold in years to come. We are looking forward to seeing you all back at Howe Green and I am sure that the children will be very excited to see you and to revisit their adventures.
