Towards the beginning of August, I was working for friends at ProAdventure assessing a qualifying canoe expedition on the River Wye.
Being involved in the D of E Award can be so rewarding particularly when you see the group working as a team to overcome adverse weather or getting to grips with their expedition. The group competed a 88km expedition from Hay on Wye to Symonds Yat West looking at and recording the different types of bridges along the river (I quite liked this project but that’s my civil engineering background coming out perhaps). I’m pleased to say they all completed their expedition and I wish them every success in completing their Gold Award.
