Last night we had a break in the weather and we had a surprise for the children as we celebrated pancake day and sang songs around the campfire.
Today a bunch of newbies arrived at Lodge Hill ready for their adventure. They were ably shown round by the old-hands who have been here for over two days now, so know all the ropes. Some very excited children arrived on the coach, and the excitement was heightened during a tour of the site by their friends. We waved farewell shortly afterwards to some tired-looking, but very happy children on their way back to school. For the rest of the day we have made the most of what the weather has thrown at us, including scrambling around in the bushes during hide-and-seek. We can already tell that the washing machines will be busy when we get back! All settled down well for a good night’s sleep and eager anticipation for what tomorrow will bring.
