Duke of Edinburgh Expedition August 2013

I’d like to say a huge congratulations to the first Duke of Edinburgh group from Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Llangynwyd on completing their Bronze Award Expedition through Menter Bro Ogwr. The group have been working very hard over the past few months in order to complete the necessary training before the Expedition, and not to mention studying for their GCSEs at the same time!
Over the weekend, the group walked from the Monknash area, Vale of Glamorgan, all the way to Barry, staying over night in Happy Jakes campsite, Flemingston. They had an extremely warm welcome at Happy Jakes, from the very supportive owners, who were delighted that the young people were staying there as part of their expedition.

I would also like to thank Rhys Pinner, who has been volunteering his time to help train the first group, and is already looking forward to working with the new group in September.

It’s fair to say that everyone was looking forward to a good night’s sleep on Saturday night! However, on behalf of Menter Bro Ogwr, I would like to say how proud we are of you all: Tomos Hopkins, Ben Isaac, Sam Turton, Catrin Haf Jones, Catrin Masson, a Ffion Masson…well done!
