North Wales 2019


Hello everyone. This is a quick update to let everyone know that the group have just left Macdonald’s and are

due back at Bradworthy at around 1:15am.

Hi everyone! A quick update - everyone has reached the summit of Snowdon after a beautiful but very windy walk.

There is very little signal, so unfortunately phone calls home aren’t possible, but everyone is happy and pleased with their achievements!

Mrs T x

Hi again everybody.  We've had a brief phone call from the group again today, and everyone is in very good spirits, eating really well, sleeping well and enjoying the activities.  Today the children have either kayaked, and climbed, or been gorging , and they are all excited to be going paintballing this evening.  As you can see from the pictures here, everyone looks like they are having a thoroughly amazing time!

Mrs T x


Hello everyone. We spoke to the group earlier today and they had been enjoying an action packed day. One group have been kayaking and climbing, and the others have been gorging. Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed their day and completed the activities brilliantly!  The plan is to climb Snowdon on Thursday, so hopefully we will get some triumphant phone calls around Thursday lunchtime!  It sounds advice though everyone is in very good spirits and sleeping / eating well! Hopefully I will be able to get some photos up shortly!

Hi Everyone,

Mrs T here with some photographs from today's visit to the Black Country museum.  We spoke to the group as they were leaving the museum, and everyone had thoroughly enjoyed their visit - especially the school room session where some naughty children (and teachers!) were punished!  The children were able to explore all of the 'living' properties, gaining first hand experience and meeting some very interesting Victorian characters.   They were also able to tour a Victorian mine shaft, and enjoy a canal boat tour of the caverns around the museum.   They were due to leave the museum after we had spoken, and were heading directly to the hostel.  Due to the lack of wifi, and mobile signal, we aren't expecting to hear any more this evening, but if we do I will try and get an additional message here.

Please feel free to leave comments below.  These will need to be approved before they are published, and so may take some time to appear.  If you are having difficulties you can email me at, and I will post comments for you.
