Mountain Activity Weekend 2016

On the Friday 7th October … Scouts and Explorers set off from Tesco Quedgeley towards the Brecon Beacons. Following a Fish and Chip stop in Monmouth we arrived at Llewellin scout hut next to the canal in Brecon. On the Saturday we split into 2 groups and headed out into the hills for a walk across some of the highest mountains in southern Britain. It was a chilly day with clouds blowing  up and over the hill. As the day went on the clouds cleared to give plenty of good views across south Wales, everyone managed to reach the top of Pen-y-fan (top the mountain) The groups were then re-fuelled with spaghetti bolognaise followed by pie and custard. After which they were ready for the evening’s film, then off to bed. With Sunday came the start of a new day and time for more adventures. The same 2 teams set off again into the hills & did some off path walking & navigation challenges, weather was much better with good deal of sun. We then took a short cut back to the minibus via an old railway tunnel, unfortunately the entrance and exit were flooded so everyone ended up with wet feet. Everyone then put on dry clothes and travelled back to Gloucester.  And here ended yet another successful Mountain Activities’ Weekend!! Thanks to Phil, Jean & Chloe for helping with the weekend.    Ant Hall
