Hello from Wales!
Today saw children embark on yet more outdoor adventurous pursuits, including a gorge walk and caving. Having slept soundly through the night, children were awoken by fresh bacon sandwiches to fuel their day!
Despite a little more rain (well it wouldn’t be Wales without it!) the children really excelled themselves yet again. During the caving experience, loads of children were delivered “through the postbox” – first class of course! Even when it was dark and the challenges had to be overcome, the children helped each other through and the small and large gaps deep within the caves. The waterfalls were amazing (and extremely cold) but a fantastic time was had by all.
Also today, children had the opportunity to go ‘white-water-rafting’ on their bottoms, in a full and fast flowing river. This exhilarating experience left many of them screaming with laughter – at least the staff think it was laughter – and not outright terror!
Tomorrow, the adventures will continue. It seems that no amount of rain can dampen the Holbrook spirit and the children continue to enjoy their action packed week away from home.
Do keep an eye out for the next update, feel free to leave a comment below to let us know what you think along the way.
Bye for now, from all in the Welsh Valleys!
