12 of our cadets complete their Silver/Gold DofE practice in Derbyshire White Peaks

Fantastic effort by both teams of our cadets last week on their Silver/Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme practice expeditions in Hope Valley. Favoured by unusually nice weather they got to experience the glory of the Derbyshire White Peaks area. What's more we were finally allowed to camp under canvas, and do everything the real way; three complete days with 2 nights camping. They were completely self-sufficient throughout and carried all their tents between different campsites, covering over 50 km distance and 1500m of ascent. Very impressive, really good levels of fitness and, well lets face it, very well trained ;-)
