D of E Residential

Jo Elson

I am doing my Gold Duke of Edinburgh award in July, but as part of the award I have to complete a weeks residential(monday to friday is accepted) which entails going away for the week with people i don't really know, which can be anything from preserving footpaths to learning to fly. I just wondered if anyone knew of any banding courses/trips that might be coming up this year or next that i could do. :D

there were a couple mentioned in the auditorium (i think) don't know if they've been and gone yet. There was one in the north east I think...
