Making the Most of Moorlands: Update

Survival Day 


Yesterday, we spent a day surviving the brutal wilderness of Longwood. Not only did the midge conspire to orchestrate our demise but the sausages were determined to escape from their pointy stick and end their suffering in the ashes of our fire!!
However, despite these hardships we had a great day making fire, food and friends as well as bows and arrows, shelters and cakes cooked in oranges. Everyone had fun but alas, our victory was bittersweet and it was with heavy hearts that we trudged back towards Langholm as we knew that we must bid farewell to one of our number, a mighty leader who had led many conquests into the wilderness, taught us many lessons (not least of all how to get a melted chocolate button off our forehead and into our mouths without the use of our hands) and inspired greatness at every turn.
Beckie, you will be missed and I'm sure I speak for everyone you've worked with, children and adults, when I say thanks for everything you've done, all the fun and we all wish you the very best of luck for the future!
