Island trip for awards

Have your say

Young people from Bawtry’s Duke of Edinburgh Award group have successfully completed an expedition to the Isle on Man as part of their gold award.

Group leader Hilary Hector headed the team of seven boys and girls on the four-day trip.

The party included Paul Beardall-Jacklin, Alistair Bucknall, Lauren Glynn, Alicia Prime, Ryan O’Leary, Jessica Allott and Jayne Guest.

The team travelled across the island visiting the many bays, crossing the moorland and hills, taking in the numerous beaches and camping out at night.

Those completing their gold award this year, which includes volunteering, physical, skills, and expedition categories, will be going to St James Palace in London or Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh to collect it. The group is mounting an expedition display at Bawtry Library.
