Last week, I was asked to be the Assessor for a Gold DofE Canoe Expedition on the River Severn for a school in Oxfordshire.
They were to paddle from Rhyd-esgun to Stourport (129 kilometres or 81 miles) using wild campsites (famers fields) which must have taken a bit of research to get permission. Their aim was to stop and explore the domestic architecture near the River Severn.
The team did incredibly well and it was really great to see a tarp being used for a communal cooking and relaxation area not matter what the weather threw at them. It was a great pleasure to part of their expedition and I’m pleased to say that the team successfully completed their expedition and I would like to wish them every success in completing the rest of their Gold Award.
