Working on any DofE Qualifying Expedition is for me, such a privilege! Watching the teams you have trained putting it all together and successfully completing their qualifying expedition is pretty special.
The teams completed a two day expedition in Llangollen and despite a few mishaps, unplanned events and a bird crowing at 05:00 at the overnight campsite all three teams successfully completed their expeditions. I was especially proud of the Forest Friends team as they had a bit of a disaster on the practice expedition with the navigation. On the qualifying expedition they smashed it and coped with one or two little incidents along the way too. They took this all in their stride and were extremely proud of their achievements and to be honest so was I.
