October brings with it Halloween, dark nights and usually the cold. More importantly it brings with it the Bronze DofE qualifying expeditions!

The groups this year had the good fortune of a mild Autumn to see them through their camps. The groups were taken to Winter Hill, where they would need to walk to the summit! They were able to use their maps and compasses to navigate the maze of footpaths in the area to reach the top mast on the hill. With breath taking views of the surrounding West Pennine Moors they took a well deserved break before heading back down towards their camp for the night.

The next day they completed their expedition with a walk through Rivington to Liverpool Castle.

Congratulations to all the Bronze DofE Award groups that have now completed their expedition sections!
