The Aeroball record was broken again firstly by Sam and Rory with 100, but then Harrison got the unbelievable score of 240 in 3 minutes! Outstanding!
There has been such a range of activities today that it would take us all week to describe them all. We just think that the children as a group have shown great courage and determination. The pictures should tell the stories anyway. I am reading all your messages out after the football on the astroturf and the Campfire including the funny one about myself. I do not plan to climb up any telegraph posts mind you, my experiences on Canoes here have made me keep my feet firmly on the floor!
