Duke of Edinburgh - Silver Training - 27 January 2018

(Posted on 27/01/18)

After a speedy equipment, check the cohort of sixty-nine students headed to Loggerheads Country Park. We met with instructors from the Conway Centre, split into seven teams, set off into the hills, and surrounding countryside from Llanferres.

Concentrating on expedition skills, teams spent the day refreshing map work and navigation skills, working through an emergency and getting to grips with bearings.

The weather was a wakeup call compared to June expeditions and on the top, teams experienced wind and rain. Fingers crossed, that the future expeditions have favorable conditions.
