Wednesday 8th May saw the first of three 7km training walks around Fairburn Ings for our DofE adventurers. Students had to navigate from Fairburn Ings to Ledsham and then Ledston before finally making their way back to the nature reserve. The students were fantastic at navigating and already there are some natural leaders emerging. Students put their theory training session into practice, learning how to walk along roads with no path safely, how to identify rights of way, footpaths, bridleways, how to relocate themselves if they are lost, how to take a bearing and how to take a 6-figure grid reference. Spirits were high despite the incredible downpour that soaked the team. Well done to our intrepid explorers; they have set the bar high!
