We were up bright and early today in order to grab the coach to the nearby lake. We will be there all day sailing, canoeing etc.

First Impressions

30th July 2016 by Buff

The sun was setting as we made our way around the entire jamboree site in one long profession. We ended up in the main arena where the Opening Ceremony kicked off…a simple affair, but good fun. The evening finished with most of the unit gathering in our main mess Tent for hot chocolate and biscuits.
