With the lighter evenings so the D of E expedition season gathers momentum. Planning has been ongoing through the winter months and a recent training day saw 16 girls out with maps and compass practicing their navigation skills. The first expedition took place on Gower where a team successfully completed the silver practice expedition. In a few days time several bronze level teams will be out for their practice.
