Rock Climbing with Richard Hudson
Six Fifth Form climbers had their mettle tested at Trevor Rocks, high above the Llangollen valley, in glorious early March sunshine.
This is an old quarry with some very challenging 80 ft near vertical cliffs, but this is a good group who had no trouble completing the three routes they attempted.
Golf with Tim Foulger
In the glorious sunshine 11 of us enjoyed 18 magnificent holes on Astbury Golf Course, Cogleton, Cheshire.
After bacon baps in the clubhouse we tee-ed off in four-balls rather innocently expecting to breeze round the course in well under our handicaps. The 3rd hole put paid to that: narrow fairway - out of bounds left, trees right inevitably led to a 3 off the tee, the second shot was long and for the unsuspecting (us) just perfect distance to plop into one of the many, deep water hazards! For me it was all downhill from there! But not for Jack Calvert, an amazingly well struck 3 iron (not one of his best clubs) on the15th 183 yd par 3 put him into the Golf Club record books with a hole in 1! However, even this amazing feat was not enough to stop the back-nine charge of George Mitchell who stormed away with the match-play competition.
A great day was had by all, and we’d like to thank Astbury Golf Club for wining and dining us so well. We would highly recommend this course as a challenge to all aspiring Tiger Woods!
Third Form trip to an Adventure Rope course with Vicky Kirk
The day involved a number of high rope activities at Albrighton Hall, for which team work was essential - and great fun!
