Another cracking week working for Arthog Outreach, which has seen me leading woodland walks and a trip to the summit of the Wrekin.
A cracking walk in Limekiln Woods with an adult special needs group, we continued our exploration of the footpath network in Limekiln Woods, visited a disused mine and had a rather nice cup of tea in the woods. A very rewarding experience for everyone involved.
Looking For Dinosaurs
Another day in the woods with a Year 1 / 2 Group who were looking at Dinosaurs for their theme. The had a great time, sploshing in puddles, squelching through the mud, and looking for prehistoric plants in the lost valley. However, despite my best efforts the most enjoyable part of the trip was being on the snow showers.
A Walk Up The Wrekin
I was climbing with this group last week and they were very excited to be put again this week for a trip to the summit of the Wrekin. The group a thoroughly good day, learning abut the history of the Wrekin, identifying fungi and of course enjoying the spectacular views from the summit. Our route to the top was via single track paths that involved some steep ascent, the group enjoyed this so much that they asked to be taken off the main path to find a more interesting route!
We also found a rope swing on the way back and this was put to good use by all the group after thoroughly being tested by me first – well you know ‘elf and safety’ and all that.
