PREVIOUS BRONZE & SILVER PARTICIPANTS

There are a large number of people who still need to get sections signed off for their awards. Please make the effort now to do this so that you have not wasted your time over the last year and more. If you require help/guidance please come and speak to me.

There are also a number of people still to do their presentation to me to have their expedition signed off. This can be done individually or as a group but you need to come and arrange this with me.

NEW BRONZE AND SILVER PARTICIPANTS

A reminder to those doing Bronze that we are meeting on Thursday lunchtimes in Mr Beards’ room and that you must be signed up for the Friday afternoon training that is happening over the next 4 Fridays.

Could all those wishing to do the Silver award this year please meet with me next Wednesday (7 November) lunchtime in Mr Beards’ room.
