On Saturday 25th May at our Campsite Maintenance day we were delighted to welcome the Police and Crime Commissioner Andy Dunbobbin, PACT Chairman Ashley Rogers, Assistant Chief Constable Gareth Evans and others including local police officers to the campsite to see how we have spent the latest funding  that we received from them. The Your Community Your Choice funding is so important  to us in our work to maintain and improve the campsite.  Our visitors were keen to see the changes to the campsite since their visit last year, they saw the results of the tree planting in January, the stream clearing and the newly sited bird boxes across the site.

They were pleased to see the new urinal in place,  the new tools & trailer and tarps bought for both hammock camping and shelter building. They saw the Scouts putting up tents, trying to improve their balance skills on the slackline and having a go at a pioneering project. Some of the adults had a go at the slackline too, with rather less success than the young people! They were also interested to hear about otters on the site and our plans to build an otter holt, together with our other ideas for continuing to improve facilities for campsite users.    We were very pleased that they agreed to present badges to three Scouts Tyla, Elis and Sophie who had all completed the 24 Outdoor in 24 Challenge and  Lily-Rose presented Andy Dunbobbin with a badge of thanks from us all.
