On the 9th June seven learners from the Grafton Centre took part in their Duke of Edinburgh Expedition, the last section to complete before achieving their Bronze award. Learners took part in an overnight stay at a campsite near the Long Mynd.

On the weeks running up to the expedition all learners helped to prepare, plan and train for every element of the trip. This included meal planning, pitching tents and practicing weekly walks to increase their stamina!

On arrival at the site all of our learners helped to unload the transport, pitch the tents and pump up the air beds (they even did this in the rain and it didn’t stop any of them!) they all worked exceptionally hard!

Learners were eager to put on their waterproofs, rucksacks and walking boots to get ready to explore! Everyone enjoyed the outdoor pursuits and worked very hard towards their award.

Well done to everyone that took part it was a fantastic success.
