We arrived this afternoon just before 2pm to warm weather and cloudy skies. After a short tour of the grounds and a quick look at our rooms we were ready to get started.

Our first activity was low ropes where we were split into two teams. We worked together brilliantly to help each other over the course and our instructors said that we the only group ever to end with a singing and dancing performance - which earned us extra points! Our activity was followed by a short break where many of us unpacked and got to know our surroundings - and found out where we could play football!

Dinner was delicious and our evening activity was a definite hit - climbing and abseiling. There are some great climbers among us!! We are looking forward to tomorrow's activities!
