Watch this space for news of our travellers in Ingleborogh, North Yorkshire...

Monday 8th May

13:00 All arrived safely in Yorkshire. Next stop unpacking, kit allocation, exploring the centre - and a cup of tea for the staff!


Tuesday 9th May

08:45 A reasonable night of sleep (a few chatty young ladies!) and everyone is up and raring to go this morning. Mrs Foster's group are off to the Show Cave!... and internet permitting, we are hoping for some photos later today.

14:00 The weather in Ingleborough is better than Leicester - Mrs Bradley has her t-shirt on and the children are just about to get out their sunscreen!                                                                

A great morning today - gorge-scrambling for one group which showed up some really kind and characterful personalities. Tonight there will be a campfire - making the most of the warm weather! 


Wednesday 10th May

09:00 A call this morning from Mrs Bradley, after her hearty breakfast! All is well with the children, and the sun is still shining. Last night's campfire ended with some rather hoarse voices (though the chattering continues!) and everyone slept well. Today groups are off to the caves, tree climbing and orienteering. Lots of photos - hopefully we'll get one of everyone before the end of the week. 


Thursday 11th May

14:00 It's been another good morning for our pupils and their leaders. One last activity for everyone this afternoon, and then it's the fun of packing..... I wonder how many odd socks will be left this year?!


Friday 12th May

07:30 The bus should be on the road later this morning. Watch out for updates from parentmail later this afternoon!
