Day 1

08 Oct 2013


Well, what can I say?! Apologies for the lack of blog tonight, it has been a long and tiring day. All the children are now safetly tucked up in bed (many loud snores coming from some!), so I find I have a little time to give you an update before I turn in for the night.

We made it down to Portsmouth in extremely good time, arriving at 12.30, with no traffic or loo stops. After having lunch at the ferry port we set sail at 2pm in gorgeous weather which allowed us all to sit outside on the sundeck for the crossing. Upon arrival at PGL the children quickly got settled into their dorms and had a tour of the site. Our groupie for the duration of our visit, 'Sparky', kept the children motivated and warm around the campfire this evening, before tucking the children into bed (after brushing teeth!).

It has been a fantastic start to the residential with a healthy tick list:
  • Amazingly warm weather
  • Safe journey
  • All settled in with nothing forgotten/lost
  • 53 children fast asleep
  • 7 staff still smiling
I can't wait to see what lies in store for tomorrow...
