Orienteering Day

We had a great morning on Friday orienteering on Rodborough Common – Goshawks covered a good few miles and had the chance to practise their compass skills which we’ve been learning in maths – and they were very good at it too. We hope to see you all up on a fell in the mist very soon!

Big Pedal Finale

Well done everyone who walked, pedalled or scooted in over the last 2 weeks. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast on Friday (thank you Salt Bakehouse!) followed by a great afternoon on 2 wheels. The weather threw up a few surprises but here are all the skids, slides and sweeping corners…

Going the extra mile…

Congratulations to Mateo of Goshawks and his younger brother Luchi who on top of achieving their 100 mile run/walk awards, also raised £50 to send cakes and goodies to the Steppes Nursing Home in Nailsworth from their lockdown marathon effort.

The story didn’t end there…a £50 cake order was duly sent to the Lavender Bakehouse, who were so impressed they matched the boys’ contribution so enough cakes could be provided for all residents and staff at The Steppes.

Their mum Carolina added: “We took the cakes this afternoon and it was such a lovely experience for all involved. The staff who came to meet us where so happy and just as we arrived there were also a couple of resident’s visitors who got really emotional listening to the story and thanked the boys profusely.”

A lovely gesture which will have lifted everyone’s spirits boys, a huge well done to both of you.
